THE bucket list holiday, you will be blown away by the luxury and exclusivity, as well as the exhilarating tailor-made activities, wildlife sightings and spectacular scenery. Track mountain gorillas in Rwanda, safari in Kenya’s Maasai Mara, hand feed giraffes at your breakfast table and luxuriate on a private island in the Seychelles. First, Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park staying at the luxury, eco-lodge, Bisate, in a Forest Villa with outstanding views. The lodge is within easy driving distance of Volcanoes National Park headquarters from where you will depart on your memorable gorilla trek.

Fly then by light aircraft to the Maasai Mara for 3 days spent on exhilarating game drives getting up close to the big cats and the other famous wildlife of the park, all whilst staying at Mara Plains Camp which blends the finest in wildlife viewing with the absolute best of safari hospitality and guiding. Before you fly off to the Seychelles you will have a night at the unique and very popular Giraffe Manor in Nairobi. Here you can expect up close encounters with the semi-habituated giraffe as they put their heads through the windows at breakfast. The giraffes are always keen to be hand fed. Cap it all off with one of the most exclusive private island destinations in the world, North Island, the same lodge chosen by William and Kate for their honeymoon.  Stay in one of the opulent villas in and lap up the pristine, powder-white sands of the turquoise Indian Ocean.
