Kenya safari & beach holiday, tailormade

Description of Kenya safari & beach holiday, tailormade

This is a superb 13-day safari and beach holiday, taking in the unmissable Masai Mara and then time on the Kenyan coast.

If you plan this trip for roughly July to October, you will have the added excitement of the wildebeest migration being in the Mara.

The lodges we have chosen for this holiday have very good eco-credentials and are very comfortable, with excellent service.

As well as the exciting game watching, the camps are linked with community projects so you could take the opportunity to learn about Maasai traditions and local Swahili culture on the coast. Finally, relax on Galu Beach at Diani either by the pool or the coastline, or by taking long walks on the beaches.

Bear in mind that this is just ONE of the many tailor made Kenya holidays you could consider, as we can arrange anything for you. An average 2 week safari and beach holiday will cost from about 2500 per person, plus international flights starting around 750. We'd love to help you plan a wonderful African experience.

Day-by-day itinerary

Day 1:ARRIVE NAIROBI: You will be collected on your arrival and driven to your Nairobi hotel for the night.
Day 2:TO THE MASAI MARA: This morning you will be collected from your hotel and driven to the domestic airport to catch the plane to the Masai Mara. It's about an hour's flight. Here you'll be met by your guide from the camp and driven to camp. It's gorgeous tented camp in a lovely spot in Mara North Conservancy. You'll be off on your first game drive after lunch. Full board.
Days 3-5:MASAI MARA: You have 3 full days now to enjoy the wildlife and wilderness of the Masai Mara on exciting game drives. The private conservancy has no fences between it and the Mara so the wildlife comes here freely, and there are far fewer vehicles here than in the national park so you have a much more private experience. You will however have one full day in the national park too. Full board.
Day 6:TO THE COAST: This morning you will be taken to the airstrip in time for the flight to Mombasa, via Nairobi. Your hotel is a medium-size friendly resort of about 58 rooms on Galu Beach, near Diani. Time to chill out.
Days 7-12:Relax on the beach!
Day 13:Today you'll be transferred to the airport for your flight home.

Environment

The Kicheche camp minimises impact on the environment by removing all non-biodegradable waste to Nairobi, using recycled charcoal dust pellets for water heating, and using solar power for lighting and refrigeration. They also minimize wastage from plastic drinking bottles as each room has a dispenser filled with mineral water.

At Pinewood the efforts of the hotel as regards conserving natural resources and non-pollution of the environment are to be applauded. They also protect wildlife in their vicinity, such as colobus monkeys.

Community

The camps funds the Kicheche Community Trust helping projects in and around the conservancy communities. They encourage environmental preservation as well as improving the welfare of the community through improved health and education facilities. Empowering the community through revenue earning projects is important to them too.
Additionally they support the Koiyaki Guiding School. Here Maasai are trained to become safari guides.

Pinewood is a very eco-friendly mid-sized resort on Galu Beach near Diani. It helps supports and maintains the local community at large, including providing free water, prioritising employment for locals and buying local produce such as fish. They raise funds for a nearby eye clinic and have a trust fund to help school and feed the local children. They are also on the front line in the fight against child labour and sex tourism.
