Picture a sweeping 13-day privately guided safari that gives you the chance to see lions hunting during the day in the Okavango Delta, stay at Kenya’s first Relais & Chateaux property and immerse yourself in the Masai Mara’s largest known leopard population. It adds up to an African vacation where adventure and luxury are perfectly balanced.
Starting in Botswana’s northern Delta, you then wing your way by light aircraft to the Selinda Reserve which is anchored by the Selinda Spillway, an ephemeral river that joins the Okavango with the Linyanti Channel. From Selinda, your pilot will fly you to Kenya Chyulu Hills, which make up a swathe of game-rich land between Tsavo and Amboseli National Parks.
Your time one the world’s most fascinating continent draws to an end in the Masai Mara as you return to Kenya’ second Relais & Chateaux property after a day of satisfying game viewing. You will be flown from lodge to lodge in a Pilatus PC-12 and accompanied by private guide Chris Renshaw, who won the 2015 Africa Geographic Photographer of the Year award. Only six places are available, making this the ideal way to indulge family or friends in a never-to-be-forgotten vacation.
