ITINERARY DETAILS

Day 1-4: Offbeat Mara Camp – 4 nights
From Nairobi, take a scheduled light aircraft flight south-west to the Masai Mara. You’ll land within the exclusive Mara North Conservancy, where you are met by your guide from Offbeat Mara Camp and transferred across the plains, game viewing enroute, to arrive in camp in time for lunch. Your days at Offbeat Mara Camp are spent exploring the Mara North Conservancy, where the game viewing is simply amazing and, being a private conservancy, much more exclusive than the Masai Mara National Reserve. In addition to game drives, you can also enjoy guided bush walks, night drives and visit a traditional village.

Day 5-10: Waterlovers Beach Resort – 6 nights
Enjoy a final morning game drive before being transferred back to the local bush airstrip to connect with a scheduled light aircraft flight direct to the coast. Land at Diani Airport on the southern Kenya coast, where you will be met and transferred a short distance to the boutique Waterlovers Beach Resort. Your days are spent relaxing and indulging in beach life, enjoying fresh cuisine at their Tides restaurant overlooking the ocean or venturing further afield to nearby restaurants. Scuba diving, snorkelling, dhow trips, reef walks and various other local activities can all be arranged as required.

Day 11: End of Arrangements
The morning is at leisure on the beach. After an early lunch you will be transferred back to the local Diani Airport in order to connect with a scheduled light aircraft flight back to Nairobi.
