East Africa’s Masai Mara & Zanzibar

Spend 11-days exploring the stunning Masai Mara and the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar on this classic East Africa safari and beach adventure. Encounter the incredible wildlife of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve with three luxurious nights at Mara Porini Camp.

The annual wildebeest migration takes place between July and October and the wildlife drama is often at its peak, but there’s excellent game viewing all year round and the Mara is well-known for its large predator population. Then you’ll leave the savannah behind and fly to tropical Zanzibar – ‘The Spice Island’. Relax on the white beaches of Breezes Beach Club and Spa, a great base from which to go scuba diving or snorkelling in the turquiose waters of the Indian Ocean.
