Laikipia & Masai Mara Safari, with Zanzibar – One of our most recommended safari&beach combinations staying at camps and lodges that typify what we love most about Africa.

Head north to Ol Pejeta, East Africa’s largest Black Rhino Sanctuary where your safari can include bush walking, mountain biking, horse riding and more, before hitting the Masai Mara for a few days in a wildlife rich conservancy.  Complete your trip in Zanzibar at our long time favourite boutique beach lodge for peace and relaxation beside the Indian Ocean.
