TWO totally contrasting dream-for holidays have been brought together by ecruising.travel into one magical 28-night escape in January and February next year – an African safari into the legendary Masai Mara, and a 5-star cruise from Cape Town to Sydney aboard the grand Queen Mary 2.
With pre- and post-safari stop-overs, the entire package embraces international air from mainland capitals to Africa and internal air there, a complimentary 2-night stop-over in Singapore, 2-nights in Nairobi that includes a flight over the Great Rift Valley, a 5-night Masai Mara Safari, 2-nights in Cape Town with a Table Mountain, City and Winelands Tour and with lunch included, and 17-nights aboard QM2 to Mauritius, Fremantle, Adelaide and Sydney with onboard meals and nightly entertainment.
The 5-night Safari includes game drives through Kenya’s finest wildlife reserve with an English-speaking driver/guide, a visit to a traditional village, and a hot air balloon safari and Champagne breakfast.
All transfers, Masai Mara Conservation area and other entry fees, port charges, government and air taxes are also included in the price that starts from $10,199pp twin-share with a January 25 2011 departure.
