When you arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met and driven to Wilson Airport for your Governors’ Aviation flight to Masai Mara. The flight takes around 45 minutes and you fly over the scenically beautiful Great Rift Valley. On arrival in the Masai Mara, you will be met at the airstrip and driven the short distance to camp. Have lunch in camp, then head out for afternoon game drive to explore the surrounding wilderness. Return to camp for pre-dinner drinks around the camp fire, dinner and overnight.
Arise early each morning to make the most of your spectacular location. Each day will offer you the option of three game drives within the Mara National Reserve, immersing yourself in this rich wildlife destination.
Depending on what you feel like, we have a range of activities to keep you occupied. Alternatively, you can simply sit back and enjoy the wildlife interaction taking place in front of your tent – or even book yourself in for one of our safari spa treatments.
For a particularly memorable and unforgettable experience, enjoy a surreal journey in a hot air balloon over the Masai Mara plains ending with a delicious cooked breakfast, complete with bubbles, wherever you land! Please note that this is an additional cost.
Take a flight from the Masai Mara over to Manda Bay on Kenya’s exotic, palm-fringed coastline.
Manda Bay is a small privately owned boutique lodge located on the northern tip of Manda Island in the Lamu archipelago on Kenya’s coast. An unspoilt, secluded island hideaway where you can switch off from the rest of the world, take your shoes off and enjoy simplistic beauty in thatched cottages and open living spaces. The only access to Manda Bay is by speedboat, so guests can enjoy this private island all to themselves. Manda Bay combines the ultimate bush and beach experience with miles of soft white sand on a private beach and coconut palms mixed with doum palms, Acacia tortilis and a variety of wildlife.
Manda Bay is the perfect escape for families, honeymooners, and couples looking for the ultimate ‘no shoes, no news’ experience and is renowned for its wonderfully relaxed atmosphere with a variety of activities on offer. End each day with a spectacular signature sundowner experience that is unmatched elsewhere.
After 4 amazing and restful nights at Manda Bay, its time get back to reality. Catch a flight back to Nairobi in time for your international flight home.
