Kinondo beach kenya safari and beach hero

Kenya Safari and Beach Vacation

Inspirational safari and beach trip to Kenya

Combine a thrilling safari in the world-famous Maasai Mara with 5 days on Kenya’s exquisite coastline. On safari, you will experience the Mara’s unbelievable wildlife on day and night game drives, guided walks, and hot air balloon safaris. At the beach, you can kick back and relax in a hammock or get active in a host of beach activities.

At Mara Expedition Camp you will sleep under canvas in this 19th century styled expedition camp. Spend full days traversing some of Africa’s most prosperous game country, renowned for extraordinary predator density and frequent hunts. You will have access to both the Reserve and Mara North Conservancy giving you options for more privacy.

After your exciting 4-night safari you will be flown to the Kenya coast for your stay at Kinondo Kwetu which is located on a tranquil private beach south of Diani. Surrounded by green shady gardens within a short distance of the white sands, Kinondo Kwetu is a family-owned lodge, run by Ida and Filip Andersson and their two children, where a stay is more like staying with friends in their delightful beach home than in a hotel.
