KENYA & MAURITIUS BEACH SAFARI

Overview

Experience two incredible holiday experiences in one trip with a 4 days Masai Mara Safari, before heading down to the beautiful beach of Mauritius where you will stay in an all inclusive beach hotel. Visit the incredible Masai Masai National Reserve in Kenya, which is one the most famous and popular safari destination in Africa with outstanding wildlife viewing all year round. The reserve truly blossoms between August and October, when the legendary wildebeest migration - perhaps the world’s most breathtaking wildlife spectacle - crosses into Kenya from Tanzania. Then catch a short flight over to Mauritius. Here you’ll enjoy an indulgent and relaxed week in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The peaceful atmosphere makes Mauritius a popular spot for sleepy beach holidays, but beyond its beautiful beaches and luxury hotels lies a growing range of fun and adrenalin-fuelled activities, while its bustling capital Port Louis has much to hold the attention.

FLIGHTS: There are scheduled weekly flights from Nairobi to Mauritius offered by Kenya Airways and Air Mauritius. A flight from Nairobi (NBO) to Mauritius (MRU) takes about 4 hours 15 minutes.

A typical Safari Itinerary is listed below. Note that prices vary depending on the month or season of travel, with July to October being peak season while April to mid June is low season.

3 nights Masai Mara | 1 night Nairobi | 5 nights Mauritius
