Venture through the plains of Mara North Conservancy in pursuit of the more rare and elusive species. Another wildlife-abundant game drive with a leisurely bush breakfast completes another exciting morning.

Unwind from your journey by taking a refreshing dip in your private swimming pool, followed by a welcome sundowner on your lavish veranda overlooking from high the white sands of Diani beach and the Indian Ocean, cooled by the early evening tropical breezes.
