Sultans to Safari – Air/Land Getaway

Duration
10 Days
Prices From:
US$ 3,599

Abu Dhabi, known as the “Garden City of the Gulf”, is the thriving metropolitan capital of the United Arab Emirates, beckoning visitors into its melting pot of international cultures, styles, and traditions. Couple that with an unforgettable African safari through the Masai Mara, and you have a standout trip offering the best of both worlds.


This 10-day, air-inclusive trip offers an African safari with a memorable stopover in one of the world’s fastest rising cities. Enjoy three nights in Abu Dhabi before catching your flight to Nairobi, and connecting to the Masai Mara.

Abu Dhabi is one of the Arabian Gulf’s fastest rising stars. Besides supporting one of the world’s most esteemed airlines, it offers a rich cultural history and jaw-dropping attractions such as the Grand Mosque and Ferrari World. The emirate’s wealth is evident, but so is its legacy when you visit local markets, the Heritage Village, or one of its plentiful museums. On your second day here, embark on a ‘dune bashing’ desert safari, stopping at a traditional Arabic camp for a taste of Bedouin culture. The day culminates in a BBQ dinner under the desert stars.

Transfer to Abu Dhabi airport, ready for your flight to Nairobi. You’ll stay here one night before flying on to the Masai Mara game reserve. This is one of Kenya’s best game-viewing regions, and with morning and afternoon game drives included each day, you’ll have an excellent chance of spotting the Big 5, along with other creatures that thrive in this landscape – all finished off with a sundowner cocktail of course!
