  • Day One: You are collected from Nairobi airport and taken to the quiet suburb of Langata where Macushla House is located. Here you relax around the swimming pool, recover from the flight and enjoy delicious home cooked meals.

    If jet lag has not effected you, there are several interesting excursions available, including visits to Karen Blixen's House, The Giraffe Manor, where you can feed the giraffes by hand, and the Animal Orphanage.

  • Days Two - Four: After a relaxing breakfast, you set off at 9pm for your two night, three day safari to Finch Hattons Safari Camp in Tsavo West National Park. The 3 hour drive takes you from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi to the endless wilderness of Tsavo.

    At Finch Hattons you will experience all the wonders of the African bush while enjoying the luxuries of a true Denys Finch-Hatton safari. Comfortable beds, hot water showers, crystal glasses, fine china and Mozart playing in the background help create a truly pampered adventure!

    Meals at Finch Hattons are delicious, ranging from a huge buffet breakfast to a five-course extravaganza at dinner. Moreover, just when you thought you were full, out come the petit fours! Special diets are catered for, if we know your requirements in advance.

    Game drives provide you with close-up views of the stunning wildlife, from elephants to mongeese, giraffe to dik-dik and lion to genet cats. In between game drives, relax in the swimming pool during the noonday heat, or enjoy the frolicking hippos viewed from the shade of your tent verandah.

  • Days Four - Fourteen: Return to Nairobi for a quick lunch before catching your afternoon flight to Malindi on the Kenyan Coast.

    A short twenty-minute drive from Malindi airport is the Watamu National Marine Park. Named one of the Top Ten Beaches of the World in 1998, Watamu hosts Hemingways Resort, your home for the next ten nights.

    Lie back and enjoy the sunshine, snorkeling and lazy, tropical days while the attentive staff and superb chefs ensure your holiday enjoyment. For the more active, the deep-sea fishing is superb! With world class skippers and well-trained crews, Hemingways consistently tops the big game fish charts while practicing tag and release systems whenever possible.

    If exploring the local area is more your style, the variety of excursions offered by Watamu is stunning. With the Marine National Park on your doorstep, and the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest, Mida Creek Mangrove Reserve and Gede Ruins within a five kilometer radius, there is no shortage of possibilities for exploration!

  • Day Fourteen: Return flight to Nairobi in order to catch your return flight to Europe.
