Beyond Cruises, a leader in small ship cruising, has made cruising for solo travelers more enticing by reducing the single supplement fees. This discount is available on their exotic Kenya & the Seychelles itinerary, which combines island hopping on a mega yacht in the Seychelles with a Kenya wildlife safari in a 4×4 vehicle.
On board the 21-cabin Pegasus, used for exploring the Seychelles, Beyond Cruises offers guests a personalized experience with a crowd-free environment, and open dinner seating.
After landing in Nairobi, guests will experience Kenya’s savannas and snow-capped mountains while on a 5-day safari as they visit game-viewing locations.The next two days are spent in the Masa Mara National Park as they go on game viewing drives on a 4×4 safari vehicle, and stay at the Keekorok Lodge. As an added perk, those interested can book an optional Balloon Safari, which includes a champagne breakfast. The itinerary includes a 2-night stay at the Lake Naivasha Country Club, a boat ride across the lake—famous for its multitudes of pink flamingos, and daily game drives.
The second half of the trip takes guests island hopping as they encounter the giant Aldabra Tortoises in the mangrove forests of Curieuse Island, snorkeling at the Anse Lazio beach on Praline, as well as walking through the Valle de Mai rainforest. While on board, guests can relax on the deck or spend time at the Zen mini spa.
This itinerary, available year-round, takes advantage of the new Kenya Airways’ non-stop service from New York to Nairobi. The Kenya & Seychelles itinerary starts at $4,389 pp with a reduced single supplement of $240 during off-season, and $450 during peak-season for a 5-night safari/7-night cruise; a $300 port charge is not included.
