Coronavirus: a message to our customers
If you are due to travel shortly, we will be in touch to support and guide you in either postponing or cancelling your holiday, based on current Foreign Office advice and your insurance arrangements.
 
We hope that international travel will resume soon, but to ensure you can still enjoy a holiday this year, we have introduced the following new initiatives:
 
(a) For all new 2by2 Holidays we have relaxed our Booking Conditions, with refundable deposits & later final payment dates. This will allow you to plan your next long-haul holiday with more confidence, despite coronavirus uncertainties.
 
(b) We have launched Auriel Holidays – dedicated to finding you a range of wonderful holidays closer to home. Working with like-minded tour operators, who know their destinations intimately, safety is uppermost in everyone's minds. Our holidays within the United Kingdom and Europe will be mindful of this, and can be tailor made to your exact requirements - whether travelling by road, rail, sea or air.
 
After three months of hibernation, we are more than ready to start dreaming again!

Warm regards

Claire Farley, Managing Director

Day 1
You will be met at Nairobi Airport and transferred to your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara, named after the Maasai people and the Mara River that divides the park.
 
Masai Mara National Park is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual migration of zebra and wildebeest from the adjoining Serengeti National Park. This phenomenon occurs every year from July to October, when game migrates along a circular route from the plains of the Serengeti to the Masai Mara and back again in search of fresh pastures, followed by hungry predators - most notably lions and hyena. After checking into your lodge, enjoy a late afternoon game drive.
 
Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft you must pack soft sports bags only, as rigid suitcases will not fit into the luggage pods. A baggage allowance of 15 kg (which includes your hand luggage) is strictly enforced for safety reasons. Excess baggage can be stored with our representative in Nairobi.
Days 2 To 3
Today is dedicated to game viewing on the open plains of the world famous Masai Mara region.
 
We set off early each morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, to view the abundant wildlife of this region. Return to the lodge to rest in the heat of the day, before setting off again in the late afternoon for another game drive.
 
Nestled within the enormous Great Rift Valley, the Masai Mara is famous for its many prides of lions, packs of hyena and other predators - as well as huge herds of wildebeest, which number over one million, zebra and giraffe. All the Big Five can be seen here, as well as numerous other species including the Thomson's gazelle, topi, kongoni, impala, roan antelope and hippo. The nocturnal bat-eared fox, rarely found elsewhere in Kenya, also inhabits this park as well as the endangered cheetah and black rhino.
 
Bird watching is also excellent with over 450 different species. These include the Marabou stork, Secretary bird, Crowned crane, Ostrich, African pygmy falcon, Brown snake eagle, Black-chested snake eagle, Bateleur, Martial eagle, African paradise flycatcher, Red-fronted & White-headed barbet, Black-faced go-away bird, Woodland kingfisher, Violet-backed starling, Black cuckoo-shrike and various species of larks, cisticolas, vultures, hornbills and so much more.
 
Note: If your lodge is situated in a private conservancy, you will need to pay an extra $130 pp if you want a game drive that enters the Masai Mara National Reserve. As wildlife ranges freely between the surrounding conservancies & the national park, without any fences to restrict their movement, this is only necessary during the migration season and should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment.
Day 4
After a final early morning game drive, transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Nairobi.
 
You will be met at Wilson Airport and transferred to your hotel conveniently situated near the international airport.
Day 5
Take the free hotel shuttle to Nairobi Airport for your onward flight.

Arrive at Mahe Airport in the Seychelles and transfer to your light aircraft flight to beautiful Praslin Island.
 
Check into your hotel and relax on this island paradise.
Days 6 To 7
Relax and enjoy the pristine beaches of Praslin, the second largest island in the Seychelles.
 
Be sure to visit popular Cote d'Or Beach, the longest on Praslin island with several small shops, dive and activity centres. Also visit famous Anse Lazio Beach in the north, with its picturesque granite boulders, white sands and clear turquoise waters.
 
During your stay do try and visit the beautiful Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve, which is the home of the gigantic Coco de Mer palm trees, whose enormous seeds resemble the woman's pelvis. This tropical forest also offers sanctuary to birds such as the endangered black parrot and the endemic bulbul.
Day 8
This morning we recommend transferring to Baie Sainte Anne Harbour to embark on a full day 3 Islands sailing adventure.
 
Our first stop is the small island of Cousin, with its pristine eco-system & nature reserve that is home to many rare bird. We continue to the mangroves of Curieuse Island Marine Park, which is home to over 100 giant tortoises that roam free, as well as giant crabs.
 
After a delicious BBQ lunch on board our yacht, we continuing to St. Pierre, a very small island that offers superb snorkelling opportunities, before returning to Praslin island.
 
Note: Take your swimming costume, towel, sunscreen & insect repellent. Minimum of 12 people required on the day to guarantee departure. Tour operates on a Tuesday and Thursday only.
Day 9
We suggest transferring to Baie Sainte Anne Harbour this morning to board the 15-minute ferry to pretty La Digue Island, the fourth largest granitic island in the Seychelles archipelago.
 
On arrival at La Digue harbour, you will be taken to the cycle shop to collect your bike. Your day is then free to independently explore this relatively less developed island, where the pace of life is slower and all transport is by bicycle or golf cart.
 
Be sure to visit Anse Source D'Argent, one of the most photographed beaches in the world with its gigantic granite boulders, palm trees and turquoise waters. It is a level 10-minute cycle ride or 40-minute walk from the village. When you arrive, don’t stop at the first cove but walk along the beach as there are many more coves that are less crowded.
 
Also visit Veuve Nature Reserve, which is home to the rare black paradise flycatcher, of which there are only about 100 left in the wild. From here enjoy views of La Digue's tallest peak - Belle Vue (or Eagle's Nest Mountain). Lunch is for your own account today, with the ferry back to Praslin island departing at 16.30 from La Digue harbour.
Day 10
Transfer to Praslin Airport for your light aircraft flight to Mahe Airport and your flight home.
