Escape to the Unspoiled Natural Beauty of Kenya, Africa for Eight Days & Seven Nights at the Fairmont Mara Safari Club for Two, including a $2,000 Fairmont Gift Card That Can Be Used Towards Conservancy Fees and Your Choice of Adventure Experiences (Land Only)

Get ready for an unbelievable adventure to Kenya, host of the Great Migration, where millions of animals move in an endless life cycle from Tanzania's Serengeti to Kenya's Masai Mara. This eastern African country lying along the equator is known for its remarkable geographical variety, from the low-lying fertile coastal region to the dry rising coastal plain covered with savannah and thorn brush. During your stay at the magnificent Fairmont Mara Safari Club resort - rated the third best resort in the world, and the best in all of Africa - choose from a wide range of adventure experiences to explore this country, from game drives and bird walks to safaris.

Surrounded on three sides by the Mara River, and on the edge of the world's Seventh "New" Wonder of the World ? the Masai Mara - Fairmont Mara Safari Club is the epitome of tented luxury. A spacious outside deck overhangs the hippo and crocodile-filled river, as does the main building, meaning drinks in the lounge becomes an opportunity to view Kenya's native inhabitants. Outdoor dining is enhanced with a boma, a structure influenced by traditional homesteads, where you can enjoy a cultural dinner reflecting not only African cuisine but also rich music. Add that to nightly activities of Masai dancing, slide shows and talks on the Mara's ecosystem and Masai culture, and it all adds up to create a truly unique experience.

Make the most of your stay by going on adventure experiences, such as balloon safaris that soar over the Mara plains capped with a champagne breakfast on the savannah, or a stroll in the footprints of the hippo-trodden path escorted by a Masai Moran. Visit Maasai Village and enjoy interacting with the locals, shopping for Maasai artifacts, and learning about the culture. Game drives, guided by experienced 'driver-naturalists', are by four-wheel-drive Land Cruiser. The resort's location provides a perfect base for visiting the Masai Mara, one of the world's richest wildlife reserves, and home to an astounding array of animals including zebras, cheetahs, wildebeests, gazelles, and of course the "Big Five": the lion, African Bush Elephant, Cape Buffalo, leopard, and black rhinoceros.

Your trip for two includes:
8 days/7 nights accommodations at the Fairmont Mara Safari Club
Full board daily, which includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner
All room-related taxes
(1) $2,000 Fairmont Gift Card toward conservancy fees and your choice of Adventure Experiences, such as a game drive, bush walk, bush dinner, and much more
