Luxury experiential travel company &Beyond is celebrating the launch of Kenya Airways latest destination with a brand new tour that combines classical safari in Kenya’s Masai Mara with the scenic magnificence of the Zambezi River at Victoria Falls and the cosmopolitan delights of Cape Town in South Africa.
With three weekly flights linking Nairobi and Cape Town via Livingstone from the beginning of July, &Beyond’s Masai Mara, Victoria Falls and Cape Town Safari explores the highlights of all three destinations in a nine-night tour.
Beginning at &Beyond Bateleur Camp in the Masai Mara, the adventure begins with a quintessential safari experience among the rolling landscapes and abundant wildlife of the Masai Mara. Famous as the site of the Great Migration, as well as the home of the shukka-clad Maasai warriors, the Mara boasts some of the most exceptional wildlife viewing in Africa. In addition to daily game drives on the private concession, the adventure includes a spectacular hot air balloon safari. As an additional bonus, guests also enjoy a night in vibrant Nairobi, along with an opportunity for a close-up interaction with the famous residents of the Giraffe Manor, a resident herd of giraffe that casually wanders around the hotel grounds.
From Kenya, a thrice-weekly flight takes travellers to Livingstone, from where they cross the border to neighbouring Victoria Falls and spend two nights at the exclusive &Beyond Matetsi River Lodge. Situated on the banks of the Zambezi river, Matetsi boasts an exceptional year-round game viewing experience, both in the reserve’s 50 000 hectare (124 000 acre) private concession and on the river itself. Activities her include twice-daily game drives, boat cruises, walking safaris, canoeing, birdwatching and fishing, as well as a private tour of nearby Victoria Falls.
