A transfer across Nairobi brings you to Wilson Airport and the launch pad for your Kenya safari. 3 nights in the Naboisho Conservancy allows you sufficient time to enjoy the multitude of activities available, including night game drives, walking safaris and a visit to a traditional Masai Village. Strict governing principles within the conservancy ensure a rich and rewarding wildlife experience every time.

A game drive transfer takes you beyond the conservancy and into the Masai Mara Reserve to the friendly reception of Rekero Camp. Centrally located and on the banks of the Talek River, the camp is perfectly situated for year round action and optimum game viewing. The excellent guiding team and homely atmosphere of this camp make it a firm favourite with most guests, seeing remarkably high numbers of returning clients.

A flight from Nairobi carries you out to the island of Zanzibar, to your own private escape that is Matemwe Retreat. Attended to by a personal butler, with meals prepared as and when you choose, there is a very high possibility that you will struggle to leave the luxurious isolation of your villa. Relax and unwind in the hammock or the plunge pool on the roof. Venture down to the swimming pools and bar at the main lodge, or partake in one of the many daily excursions on offer around the island. After 7 nights in this paradise you will undoubtedly feel relaxed and rejuvenated, and will most likely struggle to leave.
