If you are looking for a classic route with a sprinkling of safari and some blissful beach time, this is where to start in Kenya.

The route begins in Lake Naivasha. Here, life is slow and leisurely and days are spent boating on the lake and enjoying flaming sunsets.

Next stop is the Maasai Mara where you will game drive across storybook landscapes, spotting big cats lurking in the shade and watching elephant plodding across the plains. There is also the opportunity for hot air balloon flights and walking safaris.

Then, off to Kenya’s magnificent Indian Ocean coastline. At Diani Beach, you can be as active (or not!) as you like; snorkelling, kayaking, diving and paddle-boarding are all on offer, or you can just… chill.
