Days 1 - 2: Nairobi

Nairobi Tented Camp Location Map

Nairobi Tented Camp is an intimate tented camp in the heart of the Nairobi National Park. Set deep within a riverine forest just a few kilometres from Jomo Kenyatta Airport, Wilson Airport and Nairobi City, this is a true and unique wilderness experience. Visitors can arrive into Kenya and get 'straight under canvas' within half an hour of leaving the busy airport. Nairobi the only city in the world to boast a 12,000 hectare National Park, teaming with wildlife, right on its doorstep.

Your day starts with a freshly brewed hot drink bought to your tent before setting off for that famous safari tradition - an early morning game drive. Catch the first rays of early morning sun as they burn off the nightly dusting of dew and stir the plains game gently to life.

After a morning filled with sightings of giraffe, buffalo, zebra, eland, impala and other antelopes, and an excellent chance of seeing rhino (both black rhino and white rhino are present in the Park) as well as lion and if you very lucky, the elusive leopard, you return to camp for more warming cups of coffee, freshly baked breads and a hearty cooked breakfast.

As the day cools and the sun starts its journey West it will be time for another game drive and a chance to catch that evasive moment where a lion might decide it’s time to hunt. Return to camp to drinks and stories around the campfire, before dinner under the vast African starlit sky and ultimately retire to bed.

Each of the 9 double tents are spacious and have an exclusive yet friendly feel. The bathrooms are en-suite with a bucket shower. Hot water is heated over a log fire and brought to your shower when you're ready. Comfortable beds are wrapped in cosy blankets and soft towels are at the ready after you've washed away the red Nairobi dust from the day. Chairs and a table on the veranda are the perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the sounds of the bush.

Low watt LED lighting in each of the tents runs off rechargeable batteries and solar panels, otherwise guests can enjoy the romance of candles and lanterns - a truly authentic tented camp experience.

There isn't anywhere else in the world like it - a wilderness escape where you can savour the thrill of camping in the heart of thick bushland right on the doorstep of Nairobi.

Leopard Beach Resort Location Map

Situated on Diani Beach, 34 km south of Mombasa, Leopard Beach Resort enjoys prime position on one of the world's most stunning beaches. Tropical gardens drop onto the white sandy shores of the Indian Ocean below where waters are calm due to the coral barrier reef – a haven for divers.

The resort offers a wide range of high quality accommodation, a choice of dining and entertainment venues – including the award winning 'Chui Grill', an Italian speciality restaurant, the Pool Bistro and Bar, and even an ice cream bar. The resort also boasts several bars including Marco's al fresco bar where a wonderful selection of cocktails can be enjoyed whilst overlooking the pool and ocean.

The Uzuri Spa and Fitness Forest offers a range of treatments and therapies as well as the fully equipped Afya gym. For the active, there are 2 floodlit tennis courts, a splendid 18-hole golf course next to the resort, and a full-time 'Animation Team' organising volleyball, water polo, table tennis, gymnastics and aerobics.

The in-house diving school is a PADI Center which offers a range of courses for adults and children as well as a host of water sports, including windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking, pedelos and snorkelling, not to mention big game fishing beyond the reef and glass-bottom boats trips. Or take a dhow to Wasini Island and enjoy fresh crabs at 'Charlie's Claws' restaurant, or visit Kisite Marine Park – an underwater paradise, or even relax on a sunset cruise on the Tamarind Dhow with live entertainment on board.

Or simply spend the day by, or in, the magnificent pool. And just a few steps down from the pool are the white sands of Diani Beach, miles of unspoilt shoreline kissed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

Dotted throughout the vast 28 acres of magnificent tropical gardens are 158 comfortable and welcoming rooms, suites, cottages and villas. The cottages have their own private gardens or patio, and the villas boast an extensive terrace area with sun loungers and facilities for outdoor dining. 

For families, the Little Leopards Kid's Club is ideal for younger guests and the trained staff supervise soft play, bead-making and craftwork, movies, and even camel rides and treasure hunts on the beach. Interleading rooms are available on request.
