With 3 nights on safari and a whole week on the beach, this 10 night trip strikes a brilliant balance between excitement and total relaxation.
The famous Masai Mara is the first stop on this trip, for a wildlife experience that will leave both you and your children speechless.
The Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most popular and most visited African game reserves. A true 'Out of Africa' safari destination, the reserve is mostly made up of open plains, baked golden by the African sun. Big cats, elephants, giraffe, wild dog, buffalo, rhino, hyena, wildebeest, gazelles and impala are just a few of the many animal species that may be spotted on your daily game drives with your private driver-guide during your stay at Keekorok Lodge. Track prides of lion and herds of elephant across the savanna, or sit and watch the tall giraffe as it nimbly eats the leaves from the tallest trees.
Inbetween game drives, children can have fun in the adventure playground, or leap into the swimming pool and splash around in the shallow end while the parents relax on the sun loungers and have a quiet doze in the sun.
Next, you'll fly across to the coast where you'll spend a week in a resort with excellent family facilities. It's a tropical paradise and a brilliant place to recharge the batteries before heading back into the real world. For the kids, the Adventurer's Club Centre is a fantastic, fun and safe haven for all ages.
You will be met once you disembark from the plane and assisted through Immigration (including help if required with visa application and processing), luggage collection and Customs (luggage screening). You will then be accompanied to meet up with your driver.
After introductions and a safari briefing, you will be driven down to the Masai Mara (allow about 5-6 hours) in your private safari minibus. The vehicle has sliding windows, a roof hatch and high ground clearance, giving you great visibility for game viewing and photography.
Situated in the heart of the Masai Mara Game Reserve, guests can experience unparalleled safari adventures during their stay here. Venture across the vast open plains for thrilling morning and afternoon game drives in search of some of Africa's most spectacular wildlife. At other times the lodge's attractive pool or terrace provides the ideal place to unwind. A short stroll along a wooden platform takes you to the Hippo Bar where you can watch hippos wallowing in their pool whilst you enjoy a relaxing drink. Alternatively, follow the path through the trees to the Elephant Deck - a wonderful place to quietly sit and watch out for the wildlife.
Today, you will depart on 2 game drives - one in the morning and one in the afternoon - in the company of your expert driver-guide. Resident prides of lion, cheetahs, leopard, spotted and striped hyena, and smaller predators including 3 types of jackal roam the Mara area, as do elephant, buffalo and the shyer rhino, antelopes, giraffe and warthog. Hippo and crocodiles abound in the Mara and Talek rivers.
Enjoy a early morning game drive returning back to the lodge for breakfast. Enjoy the rest of the morning at leisure relaxing on your private patio or at the pool. After lunch head out on a afternoon game drive returning back to camp in the evening in time for dinner. Alternatively enjoy another full day of game viewing in the Mara National Reserve including a picnic lunch.
After breakfast you will be driven back to Nairobi, and your driver-guide will drop you at the airport, in time for you to check in for your domestic flight across to the coast.
