Kenya Safari & Mauritius

Combine 3 nights on safari in Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve with 7 nights in a boutique hotel in Mauritius.

The large numbers of predators, the huge abundance of wildlife and the dramatic rolling plains make Kenya's Masai Mara one of the most popular and spectacular safari areas in the whole of Africa.

When the Wildebeest Migration rolls in (late July – early November) the game viewing becomes even better.

From the Masai Mara, fly on to the Indian Ocean and relax in a boutique hotel in Mauritius.

Mauritius has beautiful beaches, plenty to see and some excellent boutique and luxury resorts.

This itinerary is perfect for first time safari visitors, couples and honeymooners and is a great way to combine a Kenya safari with a relaxing Indian Ocean beach holiday.

As with all of our Safari & Beach holidays, this one can be adjusted to suit your interests and budget, so just let us know your preferences.

What Camps & Lodges do you use in Kenya?

We're careful with our choice of safari camps and lodges in Kenya but luckily there is plenty of quality choice.

Your Kenya safari accommodation options include boutique, luxury safari camps, eco-camps, permanent tented camps and mobile or adventure camps.

Safari Lodges in Kenya are generally something akin to a mid-range hotel room, with similar facilities. Many have swimming pools.

Kenya's boutique lodges and camps can be very stylish and smart in terms of design and decor, often with very spacious rooms. Some feature private plunge pools.

Safari Camps in Kenya normally consists of heavy canvas luxury tents with fixed roofs and en-suite facilities with shower and flush toilets.

Eco-camps and smaller tented camps also have insect-proof tents, with beds, bedding, en-suite bathrooms and safari showers.

The atmosphere is usually very convivial with communal dining and camp fires in the evening. The focus is on the wildlife viewing.

Camps often have 'safari showers' which are private cubicles in the tents. Water is heated by the staff who will then let you know your shower is ready and fill your bucket. You control the flow of water.

Adventure camps are much more basic, with smaller, mobile dome-tents with mattresses on the floor. There is no en-suite. It's akin to summer camping in the UK. You'll need your own sleeping bags and towels. There is some degree of 'roughing it' with the camping but otherwise the safari facilities are the same - so it's a great way to save if you're happy campers!

This particular itinerary is based on staying in luxury safari accommodation.

What about taking bags on Safari Flights?

Luggage should be kept to a minimum, especially if you will be travelling via light aircraft.

In East Africa the limit is typically 15 kg per person. This should be in soft bags as opposed to hard suit cases in order to fit in the baggage compartment on small aircraft.

On road safaris the weight and size allowance is not as important but you should still try to bring as little as possible.

What Clothing is Suitable on Safari?

For game viewing it's best to wear grey, brown, khaki or green coloured clothing so the wildlife is not alerted to your presence.

Camouflage clothing is not permitted in some countries so bear that in mind.

A complimentary laundry service is offered at many camps and lodges so bear that in mind when deciding what to take with you.

We have a more detailed 'packing suggestions' in our Travel Essentials section.

What are the Safari Vehicles like?

Various types of game drives vehicles are used for safaris in Kenya, depending on the kind of trip you have booked.

Game drives may be shared with other guests, typically up to a maximum of 6 per vehicle. There may be the option to upgrade to a private vehicle.

If you are booking a road safari in Kenya you can choose between a 6 seater safari minivan or a closed-sided 4×4 vehicle – both have pop-up roofs giving passengers great photo opportunities.

We always recommend a 4×4 safari vehicle for a Kenya safari.

What is a Typical Day on Safari?

Each camp and lodge varies with its exact schedule, but generally safaris follow a typical pattern with two main activities each day.

Activities are mainly game drives and guided walks, but in some locations can include game viewing from a river.

The morning may begin with a hot drink and light snack before the first drive / activity which starts at or just after sunrise.

There are great opportunities to see wildlife at this time since it is still fairly cool and animals are most active.

The morning activity usually ends by late morning with guests returning to the camp for breakfast or brunch.

There's usually time just to relax during midday when the animals are inactive and seeking shelter in the shade.

The second main activity will follow afternoon tea in the late afternoon and perhaps end at a scenic point to view the sunset.

Some camps offer night drives after this. You'll return to the camp or lodge for drinks and dinner afterwards.

What's the Food Like on Safari?

The food available at most camps and lodges is of good quality and with an international style.

Breakfasts include cereals, fruit, cold meats, eggs, bacon, sausages etc and fresh bread.

Lunches and dinners may include soups, salads, cold meats, pasta, meat & fish dishes and fresh fruits and vegetables.

Larger lodges tend to offer a buffet selection. Smaller camps have a more personal service with guests dining together communally.

Some properties can offer bush breakfasts, picnic lunches and dinners for an experience of dining in the wild.

Bottled water is always available.

Do we Need to Tip?

Tipping at the safari camps is entirely at your discretion but as a guideline if you wish to give a gratuity then most guests give a tip on the last day in each camp equating to around US$5 to $10 per guest per full day to the Driver-Guide (who will share this with the spotter if they are a 2 person crew).

In addition, around US$5 to $10 per guest per night into the staff tip box for the rest of the staff is usually appropriate.

Yes - all of our Mauritius holidays are tailor made and we can put together all kinds of twin-centre Mauritius holiday combinations for you.

For a wonderful safari and beach holiday we frequently combine South Africa and Mauritius.

Kenya can also be combined with Zanzibar or the Seychelles.

To enjoy two or more islands on an Indian Ocean holiday, it's possible to combine a Seychelles and Mauritius holiday as there are direct flights between the two countries.

For something combining touring and beach, a tour of India combined with a Mauritius beach holiday is an exciting and rarely considered option.
