It’s hard to beat your wedding day…but what better way to start married life than heading off on safari? Victoria and her husband Josh headed to Mahali Mzuri for the ultimate honeymoon adventure and here's what they go up to...
From the excitement of waking up at the crack of dawn in your luxury tent to waiting patiently for that first Big 5 sighting, it’s hard to beat! The wildlife in the Maasai Mara are certainly not shy, from the local residents (that’s the elephants, giraffes, buffalo, gazelles, impalas, topis and antelopes) through to those that hunt them (lions, cheetah, leopards, hyenas and many more) we were not short of game viewing!
For us the leopard was what we were looking out for. Our first sighting was on day two, we were looking for a notorious male leopard that had reportedly taken an antelope high into a tree and we found him as he jumped down from the tree and brushed right past the wheel of our game vehicle. On our last day we spotted Figlet (the daughter of Fig who is well known by the guides) who was enjoying an afternoon of sunbathing up a tree and happily watched as we took her picture from below.
Honeymoon safaris are perfect for combining with a relaxing beach break and there’s no shortage of beautiful places to head to from the Mara. We chose the Seychelles but there’s the lovely local coastline such as Mombasa or venture slightly further afield to Zanzibar and Madagascar.
When you stay 4 nights or more you can enjoy a free night on us!
This luxury safari experience includes all meals and drinks (including champagne), twice daily game drives, transfers from the nearest airstrip and a fantastic team to make your stay even more memorable.
Rates start from US$ 855 per person, per night based on double occupancy.
The local community is of paramount importance to Mahali Mzuri and informing and educating our guests is a big part of the experience. On game drives your guide will talk about the local community (which guests can also go and visit) and explain how we work together to protect the wider Maasai Mara System, and ultimately enable them to make better planning decision for the future of their homes and families.
Here at Mahali Mzuri, we are currently supporting the Enkenju - Enkoirien Primary School, located about 4kms from the camp in Narok county, Aitong town. The school currently houses 120 students, aged between 4-14 years.
Donations from local businesses have helped to fund essential items such as solar lights, computers and printers, while local communities and guests have provided stationery including; books, pens and pencils, beads for bead-making, maps and Dictionaries.
As proud members of Pack for a Purpose you can make a lasting impact in the community you are travelling to by saving just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies for area schools.
