In case you are tired, we will leave you to freshen up and take a nap to sleep off your jet lag. If you are still energetic and hyped up, a swim in the warm ocean will revive you. You can also enjoy the beautiful sunset reflecting on the silvery ocean as you sip your orange juice. Dinner will be served as soon as you are ready too.
Day 2 of Kenya Beach Safari: At the Beautiful Diani Beach
After breakfast, our Swahili born guide will brief you on the activities we have planned for the day. I am sure by now you must be getting used to the warm coastal weather. We will start with a visit to the local market at Diani Beach shopping center.
Here you get to purchase the brightly colored and comfortable wear for your stay here. The beautiful Swahili Khanga (loincloth), the wide airy shirts and shorts and swimwear will be among the items sold here. You also get to buy some beautiful African curios for yourself and souvenirs to take back home.
We still have 6 more days here, so let us get to interact with the locals and at least get to learn some Swahili like,’Jambo’ which is basically saying ‘Hello. After lunch, we get some fun exploring the beach with a marine boat. We will be taking a tour of Wasini Island and exploring the amazing coral reefs, as well as Kisite Mpunguti, Marine Park for some snorkeling.
Day 3 of Kenya Beach Adventure: Skydiving
We will be spending the day outdoors and hoping to catch a suntan in the process. We will be skydiving and having full fun learning to do this perfectly, our experienced guides will be at hand all the time to show you the tricks to master this. In the afternoon, take pictures while enjoying an epic camel ride on the sunny beach.
Day 4 of Kenya Safari All Inclusive Packages: Exploring Mombasa Old Town
Today we get to learn more about the early inhabitants of this city. We will travel to Lamu after breakfast. We stroll through the ancient ruins of Gede and watch the beautiful old houses that were inhabited by the early Portuguese, Arabs and Omani who lived here.
The narrow streets are peaceful with the occasional braying of a donkey. You can savor the local foods here at one of the small restaurants. The ‘Viazi Karai’ (Bhajias) mixed with various spices will be a good one to start with. In the afternoon, a visit to the Famous Fort Jesus will take you back to the 15th Century when the Portuguese constructed this fort.
We get to see the ancient ceramics and trading goods of the old coastal inhabitants. Before heading back, you can buy the beautiful carvings or get your nails decorated with henna or your hair plaited in the local fashion here. The prices are very affordable and you will have your hands full before we head back.
Day 5 of Kenya Beach Tour: Let’s Talk Wildlife
After breakfast, we head to Ukunda for a different kind of adventure. The snake park is an interesting place to visit for all things crawling. Here we meet many species of snakes and get to conquer our fear of these animals by holding the more docile ones.
Later we will visit Haller Park for a chance to say hi to the graceful giraffes and slow turtles. We will also enjoy having a picnic here, get to ride bikes and interact with other visitors. For some nightlife at the beach, a visit to the forty thieves club will help you dance the night away.
Day 6 of Kenya Coast Tour: Let’s Play
After being away most of this trip, today we will spend the day closer ‘home’. There are various games that we can play on the beach including volleyball, netball and beach soccer. We can also try some golf.
Water Skiing and jet skiing will also prove to be very interesting. A walk along the beach will provide ample relaxation time. Get to enjoy a swim in the afternoon. This is also the best time to try out Kenya’s beer Tusker or some wine as you relax on the deck watching the sunset fade away.
Day 7 of Diani Beach Tour : Kwaheri Mombasa
Today is the last day of the Diani beach tour. It is almost time to say’ Kwaheri’, Swahili for ‘Bye’. After breakfast, it is time to venture into the water before we leave the sea behind us. A boat ride to Pemba Channel will give us a chance to try out deep-sea fishing.
Try your luck with getting the big fish like Tuna, king fish, Blue Marlins, sailfish, Dorado among others. A final treat at the Uzuri spa will leave you feeling pampered and refreshed. In the evening, we take the flight from Ukunda to Wilson airport in Langata Nairobi.
Day 8 of Kenya Safari: Nairobi City
We pick you up from the airport to the prestigious hotel in the city center. After checking in, we will leave you to take the evening at your pleasure. However, with the help of a guide, you can also visit some of the nearby city center’s attractions like the KICC, The National Archives and the August 7th Memorial Park before you retire for the night.
Day 9 of Wildlife and Beach Safari: Masai Mara National Reserve
After breakfast, our guides will drive you from the city through Maasai land to Africa’s leading National Park, The Masai Mara. We stop at Narok town to buy some ornaments and enjoy a meal of Nyama Choma (Grilled meat).
We will be spending the night at the best camp or lodge in Masai Mara Game Reserve. After checking in, our Kenyan guides, who are born and raised in the Mara, will take you for an evening drive to catch the big 5 hunting for their prey.
Day 10 & 11 Kenya Safari Holiday Packages: Masai Mara National Reserve Game Drives
The best time to catch sight of the big 5 is early morning before the sun gets too hot. Our Maasai guides know the Mara like the backs of their hands. We join them to follow the trails of the majestic lion, the leopard, cheetah and the others as they scavenge for food. At midday, we retire back for some lunch and refreshment. A late afternoon game drive will be a good idea before we stop for the day.
Day 12: ‘Kwaheri Kenya’
Today is our last day together on this trip. Time has really flown while we were having our good times. We will spend early morning at the park looking for wildlife. Later, we will head to Maasai village. A visit to the local village with the Maasai guides will give you an opportunity to interact with the locals and learn more about their culture.
