Denis Private Beach 2

Kenya Safari and Private Island Seychelles

Unforgettable safari & private island holiday to Seychelles and Kenya

Discover the luxury of privacy: safari in an exclusive region of Kenya’s Maasai Mara and enjoy a barefoot beach experience on the remote Denis Private Island in the Seychelles. Be immersed in some of the most secluded areas on the planet, see Africa’s famous wildlife on thrilling game drives, and take to the ocean in search of turtles.

Your safari will take place at Kicheche Mara Camp, a classic tented camp hidden in a beautiful valley in a prime wildlife viewing area of the private Mara North Conservancy. Experience guided bush walks and thrilling game drives as well as fine dining and exquisite sunsets. There’s also the opportunity for meaningful interactions with the Maasai community. You will then be castaway to a private island in the Seychelles. The eco-sensitive Denis Island Lodge is the only lodge on the remote Denis Island. Luxuriate on the island’s pristine beaches and unplug from digital distractions. With no phone signal or internet, you will be immersed in nature. Snorkel in a sea turtle sanctuary, spot some of the rarest birds on earth, scuba dive coral reefs, enjoy an open-air massage and partake in some catch-and-release sport fishing. Your villa will have a bicycle so you can further explore the island and its tranquil beaches. On Denis, if you’re only compelled to laze away on one of the most isolated, sparsely travelled beaches in all the world, no one will judge. Call it breathing practice!
