This is the pinnacle of African royalty with 8 nights of Elegant African Adventures that will carry you through the rich Kenyan Safari with a wondrous ride through the lush Great Rift Valley where you will camp for lunch overlooking the shore of the “pink” Lake Elmentaita, surrounded by vast and unspoiled plains. Give yourself the experience of the century, place your feet on the Soysambu Conservancy and witness an astounding variety of flora and fauna you can only find in Africa.
You will also get the opportunity to travel through the Maasai Mara National Reserve in the southwest corner of Kenya. You can enjoy lunch at the camp before going out on the afternoon game drive. Imagine riding through a reserve dominated by lions, elephants, buffalo, and rhinos! There is so much more packed into this amazing trip as well, from taking a hot-air balloon safari while watching the sunrise to learning about the semi-nomadic tribe of the Maasai.
After a magical experience in Kenya, we will fly to Zanzibar – the ultimate Indian Ocean Experience with its fascinating UNESCO world heritage site, a historical stone town with magnificent beaches. Here you can stroll through narrow alleyways and stone streets and board a traditional dhow to experience the fiery golden sun setting beyond the horizon while savoring a deliciously chilled glass of wine. Lastly, you can unwind at a beach hotel after a week of game drives to soak in the fact of you living your best life in Africa.
