A uniquely designed package, this 12-day tour brings together two of Africa’s most iconic images: great herds of animals on the Kenyan savannah and the spectacle of the raging Zambezi River thundering over a mile-long precipice – Victoria Falls. Flying directly between key destinations means you maximise your time on safari, and your accommodation is as breath-taking as the scenery it sits in. You will be checking into deluxe villas, grand tented suites and a riverside hideaway with its own plunge pool – some of the best and most exclusive lodges in our portfolio.
The adventure begins with views of Mount Kenya from your mountain retreat, privately set on the edge of the Samburu National Reserve. Explore the area on game drives and guided walks, ticking off classic savannah animals such as elephant and big cats but also more unusual, arid-region specialists such as Grevy’s zebra and the endearingly long-necked gerenuk antelope. Then it is onto the grasslands of the Masai Mara and a tented camp lying under thorn trees. Naboisho Camp is well located to experience the annual Wildebeest Migration between July and November, but this is the Masai Mara and the area has amazing game viewing all year round.
Finally, a flight south to where one of the world’s greatest natural wonders awaits. Known locally as ‘the Smoke that Thunders’, Victoria Falls sits at the heart of a region famous for its safari and white-knuckle adventures: track rare rhinos, hop on a white-water rafting trip, do some shopping at local markets, or slow things down with a sunset river boat cruise.
Well-paced with fantastic accommodation throughout and all logistics taken care of, this is a tour that will appeal to discerning travellers – especially honeymooners and couples on a special journey – who are looking for comfort and experience in equal measure.
