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 Wilson Airport for your light aircraft flight to the Laikipia Plateau.
 
You will be met at the airstrip and transferred to your lodge on this vast plateau that forms part of the Great Rift Valley and was famously described by Kuki Gallman, who wrote "I Dreamed of Africa" about her life in this secluded part of East Africa. The area is extremely scenic, with the escarpment giving way to dramatic wooded gorges and tangled riverine thickets.
 
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
At leisure to enjoy the scenic beauty and wildlife of the Laikipia Plateau, which stretches from the slopes of snow-capped Mount Kenya to the rim of the Great Rift Valley.
 
Lying on the edge of Kenya's northern frontier, the remote Laikipia Plateau boasts one of the largest elephant populations in East Africa and is one of the last strongholds of the endangered black rhino.
 
Despite its scattered farms and cattle ranches, it is essentially a wildlife wilderness supporting huge herds of game and many endangered species, including the black rhino and Jackson's Hartebeest. Other game includes lion, cheetah, wild dog, impala, gazelle, giraffe, zebra and leopard.
Day 4
Transfer to Loisaba airstrip for 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 in to your lodge, enjoy a late afternoon game drive.
Days 5 To 6
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 7
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.
Day 8
After a final early morning game drive, transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Wilson Airport in Nairobi and your onward connecting flight to Zanzibar.
 
If your flight to Zanzibar is in the late afternoon or early evening, you will be dropped off at 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 International Airport for your onward flight.
 
You will be met at Zanzibar Airport and transferred 1-hour to your beach hotel, where you can relax in wonderful surroundings on this exotic East African spice island.
 
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 (including hand luggage) is strictly enforced for safety reasons. A slightly larger aircraft is used on the flight to Zanzibar, which takes rigid bags (with 20 kg allowance), so if you have arranged in advance to store excess baggage in Nairobi whilst on safari, these bags can be retrieved at Wilson Airport between your connecting flights.
Days 9 To 11
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 12
Transfer 1-hour to Zanzibar Airport for your flight home.
