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 hotel in this bustling city.
 
Check in and relax in your warm and friendly African surroundings.
Day 2
This morning we visit the Giraffe Centre. Founded by Betty & Jock Leslie-Melville to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe from extinction, this centre plays an important role in educating Kenyan school children on the country's wildlife and environment. It also allows visitors to come into close contact with the world's tallest species, including the opportunity to feed a gorgeous giraffe.
 
After returning to your hotel for lunch (own account), in the late afternoon we visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, which is open from 5 to 6 pm for foster-parent adoption visits (as it is less busy than the morning visiting time). It took Daphne Sheldrick 28 years of trial and error to perfect the milk formula and complex husbandry required to rear orphaned African elephants, during the period that her husband was warden of Kenya's largest elephant sanctuary in Tsavo East National Park. Since then this sanctuary has gone on to save the lives of many orphaned elephant calves.
 
Note: You will need to foster an elephant online before your visit and take your fostering certificate with you.
Day 3
Today you will be collected from your hotel in Nairobi and transferred for 2.5-hours to Lake Naivasha, a fresh water lake in the heart of the spectacular Great Rift Valley.
 
Enjoy a 1-hour boat ride on the lake, with the opportunity to see hippo and some of the 400 different bird species, before checking in to your lodge.
 
Note: You will need to be lifted into the boat, so manual wheelchairs only. There is no accessible toilet on board.
Day 4
Today we drive 1.5-hours to explore the wildlife of beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park (with picnic lunch included).
 
A soda lake on the floor of the Rift Valley, at certain times of the year Lake Nakuru is home to over 400 different bird species. The lake is also a haven for certain endangered species including the Rothschild giraffe and black and white rhino.
 
In addition to its significant population of rhino and giraffe that are attracted to its salt waters, Lake Nakuru offers sanctuary to a wide variety of other wildlife - including herds of buffalo, lions, zebra, giraffe, monkeys, baboons, Thomson’s gazelle, Grant's gazelle, impala, eland, ostrich and more.
 
Many resident and migrant birds wade in its shallow salt waters - including Lesser and Greater flamingos, Great white pelicans, Marabou storks, Grey-headed gulls, Garganey and Northern shovelers and a variety of egrets, plovers and terns. In the surrounding trees you can hope to see a Chin-spot batis, Green-backed camaroptera, Yellow-breasted apalis, Northern puffback, Buff-bellied warbler and many others. Occasionally birds of prey can also be seen.
 
Note: If you are tall and remain in your chair for your game drives, please be aware there will be some restrictions on your viewing due to the height of the windows in the accessible vehicle. There are no restrictions if you transfer into one of the regular seats.
Day 5
Today transfer to Naivasha airstrip for your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara, named after the Masai 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 in this magnificent wildlife sanctuary.
 
Note: You need some upper body strength for this safari as you will need to transfer into the front seat of your game viewing vehicle. 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. If you cannot manage the light aircraft steps, you will need to be lifted on and off the plane.
Days 6 To 7
Today is dedicated to game viewing on the open plains of the world famous Masai Mara National Park.
 
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: You need some upper body strength for this safari, as you will need to be lifted into the front seat of the game viewing vehicle Children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives. Other safari alternatives are available, using an accessible vehicle, if you do not have upper body strength or if you are travelling with young children.
Day 8
After some final game viewing in the Masai Mara, transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Ukunda near Diani Beach.
 
Here you will be met and transferred to your beach resort to relax on the shores of the sparkling Indian Ocean.
 
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. If you cannot manage the light aircraft steps, you will need to be lifted on and off the plane.
Days 9 To 11
At leisure to relax and soak up the sun at your hotel situated along the warm Mombasa coast.
 
Enjoy the lush tropical gardens of coconut trees, fan-shaped travellers palms and the vibrant blooms of hibiscus, bougainvilleas and frangipani - as well the splendid coastline.
