A safari in the game-rich Masai Mara and a beach break on the tropical island of Mauritius is perhaps the most quintessential safari and beach combination, and our 12-night itinerary won't disappoint. You stay in the classic tented Governors' Camp set beside the Mara River, where you dine al fresco or in the special mess tent. After three thrilling days on safari, with evenings spent chatting around the camp fire, dust off and fly to Mauritius via an overnight in Nairobi at the Palacina Hotel. Stay at the Belle Mare Plage where you'll be beside one of the best beaches on the island. Excellent facilities mean you can enjoy a wealth of sporting activities, as well as spa treatments and a good range of food. This is an ideal combination of locations for celebrating a romantic occasion or for just getting away from the rush of everyday life.
