  • The holidays are coming and instead of having a cold December, why not enjoy brilliant sunshine on a safari holiday? Christmas is a fantastic time to visit national parks and enjoy game drives in the southern hemisphere. Take an intimate safari break for two over Christmas in the spectacular Masai Mara or surprise your family with an educational trip to South Africa. The team at Somak has hand-picked three of the best Christmas safari holiday packages for you.


    Captivating cheetahs and beautiful beaches

    The seven-night Cheetah safari plus an extra four-nights at the Baobab Beach Resort on Mombasa’s south coast, gives you the best of both worlds – an excitement filled safari adventure and a blissful beach retreat all rolled into one.

    During the first seven days of your trip, you’ll have the opportunity to visit three excellent safari locations: Samburu, the Rift Valley Lakes and the Masai Mara. Each of these game reserves showcases Kenya’s unique wildlife, including antelope, giraffes, lions, hyenas and the elusive cheetah.

    Then you’ll spend four nights relaxing at the Baobab Beach Resort and Spa. With a three-tier swimming pool, tennis courts, spa treatments and a pristine sandy beach on the doorstep, this is the place to be this December.

    The gems of South Africa

    Cape Town, Garden Route & Safari –  This exhilarating package begins in Cape Town, follows the coastline along the Garden Route and ends at the Kariega Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape. As this is a self-drive tour, you’ll be able to traverse this corner of South Africa at your own pace.

    Table Mountain

    Cape Town has a lot to offer: cable car rides up the imposing Table Mountain, historical trips to Robben Island, and visits to see cute African penguins at Boulder’s Beach, to name just a few. Travelling along the Garden Route will see you pass through quaint towns such as George and Knysna. Knysna is particularly interesting as it’s home to lush forests and a peaceful beach. The Kariega Game Reserve, however, is the jewel in this package’s crown, allowing you those much-anticipated close-up encounters with lions, elephants and more!


    Stunning Serengeti and sensuous spas

    The Serena Serengeti safari package displays much of what Tanzania has to offer, from the gorgeous rolling plains of the Serengeti to the luxury of the Bluebay Beach Resort and Spa – giving you an astounding introduction to this incredible African country.

    The Serengeti Plains

    Not only will you visit the famous Serengeti National Park, but you’ll also spend time at Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater. All three sites are home to a diverse range of wildlife, including the Big Five, as well as fascinating flora and awe-inspiring landscapes.

    The last five nights of this package are spent at the Bluebay Beach Resort and Spa. Here you can sip cocktails and swim in the enchanting turquoise sea to your heart’s content. Head out on a snorkelling trip to get up close and personal with a whole host of exotic fish species, or add a cultural twist to your holiday by visiting nearby Stone Town.
