Safari & Beach Vacation to Kenya

Inspirational safari & beach holiday to Kenya

Combining Africa's pinnacle of safari, the Maasai Mara with Kenya's tropical coast is an inspirational blending of safari and beach, delivering unique adventure and barefoot relaxation. Your luxury safari and beach holiday will begin in style with personalized butler service at Hemingways Nairobi, a boutique, plantation-style property overlooking the iconic silhouette of the Ngong Hills. The excitement of a light aircraft flight awaits as you board your flight to Kenya's most famous attraction, the Maasai Mara game reserve. Ol Seki Camp offers exciting game drives, hikes, birdwatching and hot air balloon safaris, all in the hands of the camp's attentive guides.

With the safari adventure at an end, another scenic flight will take you to Kenya's stunning coastline for your stay at Hemingways Watamu. The perfect beach getaway, it offers the chance to 'flop and drop' after the previous adrenalin-filled days on safari. If you can tear yourself away from your sun lounger by the pool, why not learn to kite-surf; get your PADI scuba diving certificate, take a sunset dhow cruise on Mida Creek or play a round of golf on the nearby world class golf course.
