Ever feel like you’re stuck in a herd of commuters? Well, spare a thought for the poor Serengeti wildebeest risking their lives just to eat and sleep, let alone get to the office on time. When vast herds of Africa’s wildebeest migrate from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara, pursued by predators across vast open plains, they are running a life or death gauntlet. The great migration is the ultimate struggle for survival in Africa, and an incredible sight to witness first hand.
luxury tented safari camp
Our Kenyan migration experience will immerse you in a world of majestic animals, dazzling birdlife, sweeping grasslands, flat-topped trees and breathtaking sunsets – with a touch of primeval savagery for good measure. Living in a traditional (but luxury) tented Kicheche Camp, your safari starts here, with animals strolling unperturbed through the unfenced camp. By day, you will experience great migration from the safe vantage point of a jeep. By night, appreciate the gourmet food that you didn’t have to catch, beneath Africa’s famous night skies.
gourmet food and beach
But this is a holiday not a lesson, so when you’ve had enough biology, you will be whisked away to an idyllic rustic beach lodge. At Kiwayu, the hardest struggle you will have is with your waistline after gobbling down a freshly caught lobster. In an isolated spot awash with barefoot luxury, between miles of desolate beach, the only sounds you will hear are the lap of waves and trill of birdsong…oh, and the odd Kudu grazing in the garden of your traditional palm thatched cottage.
nairobi’s best boutique hotel
If five days of this hasn’t started to make you forget the 9 to 5, then a night in Nairobi’s first luxury boutique Hotel Palacina should do the trick. Being waited on hand and foot in homage to the colonial life, you’ll spend your final night in unadulterated luxury. It’s bliss, believe us.
You’ll return home feeling fully refreshed and hopefully, the following Monday, your daily migration to the office won’t seem so trying after all.
