If you are a bit short on time, this week-long family safari holiday will take you into the Masai Mara National Park, one of the best known National Parks in the world, and then onto a sun-drenched white sandy beach.
You start with a 2 night safari at Mara Serena. You'll explore the plains of the Masai Mara with your driver-guide and in between game drives, there is a swimming pool and a selection of board games to keep the kids amused. Or why not encourage them to impress their friends upon their return to school with some Swahili phrases and join in the fun lessons learning to speak the language.
After this, you'll spend 5 nights at the family-friendly Serena Beach Resort & Spa to recover from your safari excitement and enjoy the sunshine. The kids can go on guided nature walks, visit the nesting turtles or go coconut harvesting, or even learn to kite surf, windsurf or shoot a bow and arrow! Even the fussiest of eaters will be happy with the delicious kids’ menus and a pizza parlour, not to mention the ice cream shop. You can relax, knowing they are safe and supervised, while you settle down onto a sunbed with a good book.
After you have had your passports stamped by the Immigrations Officer, proceed to the Baggage Hall to collect your luggage and then go through Customs and exit the building onto the street outside, where our representative will be waiting to meet you, holding a signboard displaying your name. He will introduce you to your driver-guide and you will then be driven to the Masai Mara National Reserve in your private 4x4 safari vehicle where your safari adventure will begin.
Located at the very centre of the famous 'Mara Triangle' of the world-renowned Big 5 Masai Mara National Reserve, the Mara Serena Safari Lodge is set high on a bush-cloaked hill with long views over the savannah and down to the winding coils of the hippo-filled Mara River. The central bar and dining areas enjoy spectacular views, as does the rock-surround swimming pool. Offering an abundance of plains game including zebra, giraffe and antelope, the Mara makes the ideal hunting ground for Kenya's famous big cats and hosts a large population of lions. The reserve also offers a good chance of spotting a leopard in the wild and other predators, including cheetah and spotted hyena.
After an early breakfast you will be driven back to Nairobi and taken to Jomo Kenyatta Airport where you will check in for your domestic flight across to the coast.
