    Kenya's tranquil coast offers an affordable beach extension to any Kenya safari. The vibrant city of Mombasa is the gateway to the coast, where over 300 miles of palm-fringed beaches include Diani Beach with its glistening white sands, and where the warm, clear waters are excellent for snorkeling and diving.

    ZANZIBAR BEACH - 3 Nights

    Just a short flight from Nairobi, the exotic ‘Spice Island’ of Zanzibar is the perfect post-safari tonic. The historic part of its capital (Zanzibar Town) is UNESCO World Heritage-listed Stone Town. This coastal city is a real mix of cultural influences, with labyrinthine alleyways, Sultan’s palaces, weathered historic buildings, intricate architectural details and vibrant markets. Stone Town is where you’ll find Zanzibar’s main cultural sightseeing, but it’s also worth taking a tour of the traditional farms, which grow cloves, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg, for an insight into the spices that have such an influence on the local cuisine. The ‘stay longer’ reason here is Zanzibar’s palm-fringed sands, lapped by warm Indian Ocean waters. Regularly voted among the world’s best beaches, you can spend your days soaking up the sun, enjoying pampering spa treatments, trying your hand at watersports and snorkeling among the colourful corals.

    After breakfast we leave Arusha and drive to Manyara National Park. The road winds through luxurious jungle where groups of a hundred or more baboons can be found along the road. Blue monkeys climb in the acacia tress and the bushbuck antelope gentle grazing in the shade of the forest. In the meantime the impressive silvery-cheeked hornbills have a cacophonic concert in canopy! We stop for a picnic lunch under the Umbrella Thorn before continuing our game drive. This small park has herds of elephant, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and giraffe. It is famous of it's lions who lounge in the Umbrella Thorn (not the one we have our picnic under though!). At the end of the day we drive to our accommodation for the next 2 nights, on the green, lush outskirts of the small village of Karatu.

We have a picnic lunch and see the many baobab trees on the hilly plains that Africa is so famous for. The landscape is also dotted with a large number of termite mounds.
