Diani is at Kenya’s gorgeous south coast with long stretch of silvery soft sand fringed by tall palm trees bordering brilliant blue waters and kissed by surfable waves is an idyllic beach location for perfect holidays.

  1. The 28sq. km Kisite-Mpunguti Marine Park is reputed to be the most beautiful marine park after the Great Barrier Reef of Australia and is the best in Kenya in terms of species diversity, coral quality and reef build-up. The warm, pristine waters are host to dramatic coral formations, dolphins, turtles, sting rays, moray eels and a bewildering variety of sea life that comprise a unique eco-system that could be referred to as a garden under the sea. Come with us for a day trip on the Pilli Pipa in and around Kisite, home of the dolphins.

  2. Sky Dive, this is the perfect place for a sky-diving at sea level, it is possible to experience a full one minute accelerated free fall from 14,000 feet. Tandem jumps are the best way to discover skydiving. Physically attached to an instructor, you jump together, giving you all the thrill of a skydive, with none of the stress of managing your descent and parachute along the way.

  3. Shimba Hills National Reserve, is home to many elephants, and is the only place in Kenya where tourists can see the Sable Antelope (last breeding herd). You can go for guided walks to the Sheldrick Falls or even go for sundowners on Pengo Hill, which faces west and watch the sun drop down below the horizon. On a clear day you can see the Tsavo Plains and Mt Kilimanjaro.

Testimonials

We had a tight nine-day programme and wanted to pack in the maximum possible in that period to get a feel of the "essence" of Kenya. Managed to do that and much much more. They crafted a very well thought out itinerary - covered a day stay in Nairobi, mandatory trip to the National Reserve, a Lake, White sand Beaches and of course a trip to the Equator - one of only 13 countries through which this imaginary line passes. The best part of our visit was exploring the majestic Maasai Mara and the visit to the Maasai Village. Having a Maasai Guide was great - he knew his way around, was able to communicate clearly in English and gave us some interesting information about the animals and Birds living in the Reserve. Bhavana provided us a detailed brochure with information about the places we were visiting, Do’s and Don’ts, Suggestions and Tips, Currency required, Weather forecast etc. One suggestion to for her local guide, he sometimes did not stop in the correct location - where camera angle would be best for photography. They need to be trained on the same. Also, Vehicle ignition should be put off, as often there is camera shake with the vehicle in "On" position. Travelling with the family - could not have had a better time for bonding (especially considering we are living in three different locations) and to celebrate my Birthday with that amazing and unique manner the Cake was brought to me by the Resort Staff at Masai Leisure Camp. Will forever be etched in memory. Our Overall experience - Would like to come back again - Need I say more!!
To start with, the planning of the trip was very smooth and clear. Nothing hidden – no surprises. The itinerary was perfectly planned as per my schedule; due to which I completed my trips with ease and remembered one too. My experience with the all the guides were fantastic and superb. Awesome men with all capability to keep you charged. They communicated all the pre-requisites well in advance the information includes like, Currency Requirements, Tips to be paid, Dos and Don’ts, weather forecast etc My overall experience – one of the best – wonderful & awesome.
I met Bhavana at a common social event and instantly she came across as a humble human being to me...Gradually we became friends! We did over 7-8 trips (to include Lake Naivasha, Mt. Kenya, Diani, Dolphin safari, Samburu & Aberdare) through her in the last few years and every time I knew that this would be one great memory since we just went with a vacation mode on and Bhavna took care of absolutely everything else. Her meticulous planning considering even the choices of any family’s little ones too just make u feel so at home at any lodging or any transportation modes that u take! Being a friend I know this fact that before she arranges any trip she herself makes sure that she visits the places or at least has all the details with her right from the room allotments, cuisine that is served, right to the quality of towels in the bathrooms. Would like to mention just one thing here to sum up that with Bhavana taking care of your travel plans you definitely get a rejuvenating well deserved break!!!!
