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.
Day 2
Today you will meet with your lodge manager to discuss your wedding blessing and any special requests you may have regarding the ceremony.
 
The rest of the day is dedicated to game viewing on the open plains of the world famous Masai Mara conservancy region. Set off early 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 including the vulture, marabou stork, secretary bird, hornbill, crowned crane, ostrich, long-crested eagle and African pygmy-falcon.
 
Note: If your lodge is in a private conservancy, you will need to pay locally (approx $80 pp) for any game drive that enters the Masai Mara National Reserve. As wildlife ranges freely between the surrounding conservancies & the national park, without any fences, this is only necessary during the migration season.
Day 3
Wake at leisure on your WEDDING BLESSING DAY.
 
Relax and enjoy every moment of this your special day, as you exchange vows in a late afternoon ceremony conducted by a Masai elder, with Masai dancers in attandance. Then toast your marriage with sparkling wine and enjoy a celebratory game drive at sunset, followed by a romantic dinner under the stars, creating memories of a lifetime in one of the world’s greatest wildlife conservation areas.
 
Wedding Blessing package varies by lodge, but usually include a small wedding cake & bottle of sparkling wine. Any other extras (eg make-up, photographer) will be subject to a supplement. Full details of the package you have chosen will be provided separately.
Day 4
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 5
Enjoy some final game viewing in the Masai Mara this morning, before your transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Wilson Airport.
 
Here you will be met and transferred to a local restaurant for an included lunch - with your choice of:
(a) Carnivore - known for its barbeque and steaks;
(b) Haanda - which specialises in northern Indian cuisine; or
(c.) Nyama Mama - a modern fun African roadside dinner that creates Chapatti wraps, stews & other locally inspired food.
 
Afterwards you will be transferred to Nairobi Airport for your onward flight.

You will be met at Zanzibar Airport and transferred 1-hour to your beach hotel.
 
Check in and relax in your wonderful surroundings on this exotic East African spice archipelago.
Days 6 To 10
At leisure to relax and enjoy the gorgeous white sandy beaches of the Zanzibar Archipelago.
 
Activities vary depending on the size of your resort but usually include water sports such as kayaking, windsurfing and kite surfing. You can sail in a traditional Arab dhow or enjoy a full day catamaran excursion around the island, with snorkelling opportunities. Be sure to try their refreshing iced hibiscus tea and some of the many spices grown on this island.
 
The best scuba diving is around Mnema Island in the northeast and Nungwi in the north. Deep sea game fishing is also based out of Nungwi, where there is a privately owned turtle aquarium.
 
A variety of day excursions are also on offer including a walking tour of historic Stone Town, a spice island tour, snorkelling at Prison Island where you can see giant tortoises, a cultural tour to Uzi Island and Swahili cookery lessons.
 
If you would like to see local wildlife, you can visit Jozani Forest in the south of the island, where you can see rare indigenous red colobus monkeys and walk along a mangrove boardwalk to enjoy its birdlife and flora, including some giant baobab trees. There is a Butterfly Centre and Snake Park outside the gate. From late July to mid November you can also take a boat ride to see migrating humpback whales.
Day 11
Transfer 1-hour to Zanzibar Airport for your flight home.
