Kenya Safari and Maldives Vacation

Inspirational safari & beach holiday to Kenya and Maldives

Experience 2 very different wildlife destinations on this thrilling journey, exploring Kenya’s culturally diverse and scenically beautiful northern Samburu region and the famous Maasai Mara, followed with an island beach stay in the Maldives.  With a stay at Saruni Samburu, begin by encountering Africa's most unusual wildlife up close in their natural habitat: the 'Samburu Special Five', rare endemic species present only in the arid North, the famously large herds of Samburu elephants and the endangered black rhino, reintroduced to Northern Kenya after 30 years.  

Then it is time for a stay in Kenya's most well-known park, the Maasai Mara, staying at Saruni Mara. From July to October the wildebeest migration will be spread across the plains but there is an abundance of wildlife year-round including all the big cats. Enjoy endless views, fire-lit meals under the vast African sky and guided game drives led by Maasai warriors. 

Complete this unforgettable experience with a stay at the boutique Baros Maldives. Arrive by speedboat at this haven of relaxation, where the lagoon and house reef can be explored direct from the beach. Expect plentiful snorkelling and diving, but also indulge in tailored programs and private excursions with the resident marine biologist, including coral planting and underwater photo shoots. Multiple over-water fine dining options and romantic sandbank picnics complete the incomparable hospitality at this unique hotel.
