    What can I expect from this 10-day trip to Kenya and Zanzibar, which includes a safari in the Masai Mara and beach holiday in Zanzibar

    On this Kenya Safari and Zanzibar beach holiday, we will mix the adventures of a 6 day safari in the Masai Mara, with 4 days of beach in the beautiful island of Zanzibar. Additionally, our experience will be beneficial to a project focused on women’s education and empowerment, which we will be able to learn about in detail during these days at the Maasai Mara.

    This is a 10-days trip to Kenya and Zanzibar, that includes a safari in the Masai Mara and a few days in the beautiful island of Zanzibar. In the Masai Mara, we will be able to discover the African adventure hand-by-hand with the Masai community. They will show us the secrets of the Masai land. And then, before returning home and the daily routine, we will spend 4 days enjoying the beautiful beaches in Zanzibar Island.

    Kenya Safari in Masai Mara

    The first 6 days, we will head the Masai Mara.

    We will be doing one of the most adventurous and less touristy safaris in Kenya during the first nights of our 10-day trip to Kenya & Zanzibar. We will be staying at an eco-lodge that is owned by the Maasai community. The lodge, which features glamping tents and all the amenities, is owned by a prominent Maasai leader who is also an official guide for National Geographic.

    He and his team of Maasai will take us on safari to show us the Maasai Mara (here they can live in total contact with the wildlife) and reveal the secrets of their land.

    In addition to adventures and a safari that respects local communities and animals, it is a safari with a strong positive impact on the territory because all profits from the travelers’ stays to the schooling of Maasai children in the area, as well as to women’s support programs, or to the construction of a high school and tourism school.

    It is an area where Maasai communities still live and where there is less tourism than in the National Reserve or other national parks.

    From the first day, we will see the advantages of doing this safari in this area:

    • It is a less touristy area, so there are fewer cars around the animals, less lodging, and in short, more tranquility. (there are studies that show that animals are fleeing from areas overcrowded by tourism to go to quieter areas like this one).
    • During the safari we will be able to get close to the animals, leaving the tracks of the cars and going into the savannah.
    • With our trip, we will help finance the NGO led by William, which was founded to help the community through tourism. More than 80% of the money from your trip stays in the community.
    • You will see the NGO’s projects that help the most disadvantaged, such as the women’s village, which they accompany after they have been disowned by their own families.

    We will also see the best sunsets of the savannah, surrounded by hundreds of animals in the wild. In this area, unlike in the national parks, there are no schedules, and we can extend until sunset, and even let it get dark surrounded by animals. We will also go to our Maasai guide’s favorite spot near the Mara River, where we will camp and watch the hippos come out of the river at the end of the day. This type of experience is possible thanks to the work that William and the NGO do in the area, and thanks to this, they have permission to go to certain places where the agencies or traditional accommodations cannot reach.

    But the unique experience does not end here.

    During the 10-day trip to Kenya and Zanzibar, wewill visit a sanctuary where two white rhinoceroses live (threatened by poaching) which are guarded 365 days a year by rangers. We will do a walking safari to see how the sun rises in the Masai Mara.

    The Masai Mara’s full day safari, which lasts until sunset, is another star activity. On that day, we will have our meal in the most beautiful location we have ever experienced, under a tree in the middle of the Masai Mara, without any other tourists around. Only us.

    Zanzibar Beach Holiday

    After a long day of safaris, wild nature, and Maasai culture, we’ll conclude our trip in Zanzibar for the last four days of our holidays.

    After a safari in Kenya, Zanzibar is the perfect island to spend a few days relaxing. It has great beaches, ideal for walking, kite surfing or just reading a book under a tree.

    These days, you will visit Zanzibar on your own, you can do a blue Safari, go to see dolphins, eat fish on a secret island and see some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world. This activity, which is not included in the price, can be booked either in-person or through us. We can help you to book a Blue Safari in Zanzibar.

    You can also rent a motorcycle and move around the island freely, visit the Jozani Park, where there is an endemic monkey or go to the south and enjoy eating a lobster in front of the sea.

We will go towards the evening to watch the hippos come out of the river for lunch, when the heat starts to drop.
