‘I never knew a morning in Africa when I woke up and was not happy.’
– Ernest Hemingway
Africa’s captivating beauty is showcased to arresting effect on Kenya’s white-fringed beaches and awe-inspiring national parks. And you don’t have to choose one over the other. What could be better than combining a thrilling safari with a relaxing tropical beach holiday?
Safaris, which derives from the Swahili word for ‘journey’, were born in Kenya which boasts several magnificent game reserves. Africa’s majestic ‘Big Five’ – lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and buffalo – roam freely across great swaths of savannah along with wildebeest, zebra and giraffe.
Whether you choose to ride with the Maasai in Kenya’s famous Maasai Mara, track elephants in the haunting shadow of a snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro in Amboseli or traverse the plains of the mighty Tsavo, a safari in Kenya will take you to the heart of Africa’s wilderness and to the home of its iconic wildlife.
Stay in a luxury lodge, dine under the stars and share stories as flames flicker around a campfire for a truly memorable safari experience. A bush breakfast might even be on the cards.
When it’s time to leave the wilderness behind, why not unwind with a laidback holiday at The Sands before heading home?
With its prime beachfront location, The Sands offers you the ultimate getaway to round off a fabulous safari.
Take a leisurely stroll along powdery soft sand, recline in the shade on private sunbeds, cool off in our galena stone pool and indulge in a therapeutic massage treatment in our soothing forest spa. There’s also a chance to dine in the owner’s stylish wine cellar. Our pick of bucket-list activities includes kayaking to a sand island, stand-up paddle boarding, camel riding, dolphin spotting and scuba diving.
Kenya is a dream destination for wildlife lovers and anyone craving some rest and relaxation in a tropical paradise. We invite you to combine the two for the holiday of a lifetime.
