Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Fly to the Masai Mara

Upon your arrival at Kenya's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you'll be met and taken to Wilson Airport to fly to the Kichwa Tembo airstrip. Once here, you'll be transferred by road to Kichwa Bateleur Camp, your home for the following three days.

Depending on what time you arrive, you may get time to enjoy a bit of lunch at the lodge before meeting your guide for tea and setting out on your afternoon game drive in the Masai Mara.

The Masai Mara National Reserve is the most spectacular and most popular game reserves in Kenya. The concentration of game in the reserve during the annual wildebeest migration is world famous, and this is also one of the few areas in Kenya where you are likely to see all the members of the Big 5 - buffalo, elephant, rhino, lion and leopard.

Days 2-3

Explore the stunning Mara plains

While at Kichwa Bateleur Camp, you will enjoy twice-daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, spot-lit night drives on the camp's private concession, guided nature walks with a Masaai naturalist and sundowners at a secret location that boasts spectacular views over the Masai Mara.

One morning during your stay, wake up extra early and embark on an hour-long, hot-air balloon safari over the vast plains of the Masai Mara. The scenery from the balloon is breathtaking and you will enjoy a unique bird's eye view of Africa's big mammals on the move.

Day 4

Arrive in the Seychelles

Leave the Masai Mara after a wholesome breakfast as you transfer by road to the airstrip for your scheduled flight to Wilson Airport. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your onward flight to Seychelles International Airport.

Here you will be met and transferred to Lemuria, a palm-fringed luxury island resort complete with the only 18-hole golf course in the Seychelles.

Days 5-6

Relax under the Seychelles sun

Spend your days relaxing on the beautiful white beaches of Praslin Island or head for the turquoise water: Lemuria provides a wide range of watersports including snorkelling, windsurfing, sailing and kayaking.

If you prefer to keep your feet dry, explore the island on a mountain bike, play a game of tennis or tee off on the resort's 18-hole championship golf course.

Pamper yourself at the resort's superb spa with a revitalising massage treatment before catching up with some downtime beside the hotel pool.

Days 7-9

Transfer to Mahe

After a delicious breakfast, you will be transferred by air and road to Ephelia Resort on Mahe Island. Set on one of the island's most beautiful beaches, the resort overlooks a marine national park.

Enjoy complimentary non-motorised water activities such as windsurfing, catamaran trips and kayaking or energising workouts in the fully equipped gym, tennis and squash courts.

For those who prefer things at a slower pace, relax and revitalise body and mind at the Spa de Constance or at Shiseido Pavillion.
