BEST TIME TO GO
TOUR AT A GLANCE
This is the life: a fortnight of first-rate wildlife viewing in two distinctive reserves, followed by a beach vacation in the Seychelles before returning home. You might be excused for believing you’ve found heaven after spending time in Kenya’s Samburu National Reserve and Olare Motorogi Conservancy, followed by the peerless island of Mahé.
From the dry, stony ledges of Samburu and the undulating plains of Olare Motorogi to the exquisite appeal of Hemingways Nairobi, where you will eat Michelin-star cuisine in a Hollywood-themed restaurant, there is a certain magic and amazement at each stop. Discover the endemic Samburu Special 5—the Beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk antelope, and Somali ostrich—and take in the extraordinary wildness of East Africa’s constant rhythms.
The Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Center, or Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage might be the best places to go at this time. Or just relax and indulge in some pampering at the hotel’s first-rate spa and wellness facility.
If you’re looking for a lodge where you may have some privacy, Saruni Samburu is a breathtaking property that is spread out at altitude, with enough distances between social areas, the rooms, the spa, the swimming pools, and reception.
Expect to witness lion, leopard, cheetah, as well as the Samburu Special 5: the Beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk antelope, and Somali ostrich, in addition to the herds of elephant seen in the Samburu National Reserve.
With the help of Saruni’s native guides, you may also learn about the Samburu people’s traditions and way of life, which have remained constant for generations. Children are especially welcome at the lodge, and the guides will share with them the wisdom of the bush, possibly showing them how to craft a traditional bow and arrow or a toothbrush from the “toothbrush tree.” on the northern boundary of the powerful Masai Mara, in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy. The resort is positioned above the undulating plains, making it the ideal vantage point from which to observe wildlife in this fascinating region of the Great Migration.
The 12 tents at Mahali Mzuri are each on a high platform to maximise the view, and from your deck, you can observe most of the action. However, make sure to go on guided hikes because the Masaai guides know where to discover the greatest tales and you might even see an elusive leopard dozing among a tree’s branches.
Then take a flight to the Seychelles, a paradise of tropical islands, where you will spend the next five days staying close to Mahé, the largest of the Seychelles islands and the gateway to this sun-drenched archipelago.
You cap off your trip to East Africa in grand fashion. Mahé, the largest island in the archipelago, gives visitors a taste of both the indigenous Creole culture and the classic tropical beach vacation. As you explore the Enchanted Island Resort, a hidden jewel of the Indian Ocean, be prepared to be fascinated. A short motorboat trip from Mahé, the opulent resort offers stunning villas with private pools and direct beach access on a private island in the Saint Anne Marine Park. Enchanted Island Resort welcomes you to swim in the pristine ocean, relax at the hilltop spa, or chill in your own private pool while you take in the delights of the Seychelles. It is a haven for romantic and wonderful vacations.
