Your holiday begins as soon as you board your business class flight with Kenya Airways to Nairobi and on to Arusha. This luxurious holiday is the perfect way to mark a special occasion and celebrate in style. Spend seven nights spotting incredible wildlife on a luxury safari in northern Tanzania, including the open plains of the Serengeti, Lake Manyara and spectacular Ngorongoro Crater.

Follow this with five superb nights on tranquil Mnemba Island which is positioned off the coast of Zanzibar and is surrounded by the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. The island is a tiny island paradise that feels almost as though it is exclusively yours. Do as little or as much as you want - water sports are included so you can snorkel, kayak, fly fish, enjoy sun-downer dhow cruises and windsurf, as well as dive. Two scuba dives are included per day. All meals and local drinks are included and you stay at the very best lodges throughout this trip.
