Day 1: Overnight at Mara House, Masai Mara

On arrival at JKIA you will be met by a Penwell representative and transferred to Wilson Airport. Once at Wilson Airport you will catch your connecting SafariLink flight to Masai Mara Airstrip. You will then have the opportunity to meet your private safari guide and head to Mara House for the start of your safari adventure. A welcome table will be waiting for you at Masai Mara Airstrip, holding various beverage and snack items. Your guide will also brief you on the surrounding area en-route to Mara Bush Houses.

Mara Bush Houses

The private houses are located in the very best locations of the Masai Mara eco-system and benefit from three generations of safari experience in this area. This ensures that guests experience some of the richest game viewing and most genuine cultural insights available in Africa today. The exclusivity of the bush houses enables guests to enjoy the seclusion of their own lodgings and have the flexibility and freedom to personally design their safari itineraries in the Masai Mara. With a specially adapted safari vehicle, and a guide’s lifetime of knowledge at hand, the plains, rivers and hills of the Masai Mara are there to be explored.

Day 2 – 4: Overnight at Mara House, Masai Mara

Depending on your preference, there are a couple of options with regards to how your day is structured. One option is to break camp early and head out with a picnic breakfast on a morning game drive, returning to camp in time for lunch. Alternatively, you can eat breakfast in camp and head out with a picnic lunch on an afternoon game drive, returning in the mid-afternoon. Either way, it’s good to have options on a family-oriented African Safari.

Day 5: Overnight at Matemwe Beach House, Zanzibar

After breakfast, depart camp and make your way to Masai Mara Airstrip with your personal guide. You will then catch your connecting SafariLink return flight to Wilson Airport. Once at Wilson Airport you will be transferred with one of our representatives to JKIA. Once at JKIA you will bid farewell to your guide and catch your connecting flight to ZNZ Airport via Precision Air.

On arrival at Zanzibar Airport you will be met by a Zanzibar safari travel guide and transferred by road to Matemwe Beach Hose in the north east coast of Zanzibar island. The Beach House is perfectly situated opposite the spectacular diving and snorkelling reefs of the Mnemba Atoll and surrounded by some of the best beaches in Zanzibar.

Matemwe Beach House is an exclusive use private house and is made up of two double rooms on the ground floor and has a mezzanine level with twin beds, butler service and private swimming pool. This private residence allows small groups and families to write a schedule for their tropical escape. An enchanting experience for kids of all ages!

Day 6 – 8: Overnight at Matemwe Beach House, Zanzibar

There are a variety of activities available either at Matemwe Beach House, or that can be arranged through reception. Activities outside of the resort can usually be booked at 24 hours’ notice so it is best to arrange these on arrival at the Beach House. Your days are therefore open to be structured as you choose, with either as much relaxing by the private pool, or as many activities as you wish. Did we mention hot air balloon rides?

Day 9: Departure

After breakfast, pack your bags and depart for Zanzibar Airport. You will then catch your connecting flight and bid farewell to your guide for your onward journey back home.
