11 days from £2,940pp plus international flights.

Enjoy the vast plains and wildlife of the Masai Mara. This is big cat country. End your holiday relaxing on a beach on Zanzibar.

    • Game drives in Kenya's Masai Mara
    • A must for cat lovers
    • Stay at Governor's Camp of Big Cat Diary fame
    • See the wildebeest migration (July to Oct)
    • Relax on the tropical Zanzibar island
    • Go snorkelling, diving and kayaking


The Masai Mara is famous for its big cats. Lions, cheetahs and leopards and are all seen regularly here. This is a must for big cat lovers!

If you could choose just one safari destination, you could do no better than the Masai Mara. Famous for the abundance of lion, the annual wildebeest migration, and the Maasai tribe with their distinctive custom and dress, it is without a doubt one of Africa's most famous safari destinations.

This holiday gives you four full days in which to explore the national park and surrounding region.

In the company of an expert guide, you'll observe and learn about the wildlife, large and small.

We've based this trip on staying at Governor's Camp, which is well-known for being host to the BBC series Big Cat Diary. So come and meet the Marsh & Rhino Ridge prides, Olive the leopard and Shakira the cheetah - if they're feeling sociable!

After the safari excitement you'll be in need of some relaxation and the tropical island of Zanzibar in neighbouring Tanzania is just the place! You have a five night stay in a seaview room at the lovely Fumba Beach Lodge. With its friendly staff, ocean views and rustic charm this is one of our favourites on Zanzibar and is sure to become one of yours, too.

While relaxation is key there are opportunities for watersports and all manner of island excursions including a picnic on a deserted island, so there's plenty to keep you busy but you are left free to choose how to spend your valuable time. It's ideal.
