day 1: nairobi - mara north conservancy

Jambo! The driver is waiting upon your arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Nairobi to bring you and your loved one to the Nairobi Wilson Airport (which takes about 45 minutes). You board a beautiful 1-hour flight to the Mara North Conservancy, the northern half of the Serengeti-Masai Mara ecosystem. Landed at the Mara North Airstrip, you receive a wonderful bush welcome drink, a warm African welcome. Then it’s time for your transfer to the Neptune Mara Rianta Luxury Camp (which takes approximately 30 minutes) where the Maasai are waiting to perform their traditional song and dance for you. A great moment to take your first pictures! After the check-in and camp briefing, you have lunch and some free time to enjoy the facilities of the camp, overlooking the Mara River (don’t miss our hippo pool!). Your personal butler is on call 24/7 to assist with any inquiries you may have during your stay at the camp. Late afternoon your adventure starts! You go on an exclusive game drive in the Mara North Conservancy, where off-road driving is allowed for a short period of time when there is interesting game in the area. Ideal for making the most spectacular photos! And as the sun sets over the Mara plains, the expert ranger drives you to a private location for a romantic bush sundowner. A fantastic intimate moment in the open savanna. Back at the camp, a Maasai guides you to the restaurant to enjoy a fine dinner and back to your room for your first overnight at the camp. 

day 2: mara north conservancy - mara national reserve - mara north conservancy

This morning after breakfast you leave for a full day private game drive in the Masai Mara National Reserve, one of the world’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries. Together with the Serengeti it forms one spectacular ecosystem with an incredible diversity of wild animals. During ‘The Great Migration’ (July - October) over a million wildebeest and thousands of other animals pass through, searching for fresh new grass after the rains. Game viewing is excellent year-round with an extraordinary density of animals, including the ‘big five’. The advantage of a private safari is that you only need to take your own wishes (and off course those of your loved one) into account. Lunch is served picnic style in the bush, a truly amazing experience. In the evening you make some more unique memories during a romantic private Maasai diner at the camp, set up near a cozy campfire under a starlit African sky.

day 3: mara north conservancy

The day starts with a nice cup of coffee, ready to leave for an early morning game drive in the Mara North Conservancy. Our expert guides know the area like nobody else and do their utmost to trace the game for you as the sun rises. During the morning and also late afternoon period, the animals are more active and you have the best light conditions to take your pictures. At the camp, you enjoy a delicious breakfast before going to the Earth & Rain Spa for a relaxing 30-minute couples massage. No better way to take a short break of exploration than by indulging yourself in a pampering session. In the afternoon you have lunch at the camp and some time at leisure. Late afternoon you set off to experience another magical safari in the Mara North Conservancy until the sun sets.  You end the day with a lovely dinner and your last overnight at the camp. 

day 4: mara north conservancy - zanzibar

Today you head off in the beautiful Mara North Conservancy one more time on an early morning game drive. Our safari expert guides you through the stunning African bush until sunrise. When you return at the camp a sumptuous breakfast is already set up for you. Depending on your flight time, you have your last lunch at the camp before your transfer back to the Mara North Airstrip. You board your flight to the tropical island of Zanzibar via the Nairobi Wilson Airport (a flight time of approximately 4,5 hours). The driver is waiting upon your arrival at the Zanzibar International Airport to bring you and your loved one to the Neptune Pwani Beach Resort & Spa (a transfer of approximately 1 hour). The start of your romantic beach holiday at the coral white sandy, palm-fringed beach of Kiwengwa and the warm crystal-clear water of the Indian Ocean.
