Sometimes your B&R trip simply isn’t long enough! Extend your stay for the best vacation possible. If you wish to spend a few days in region either before or after your official B&R trip, and need assistance making those plans, your B&R Travel Advisor can help. We can create an independent travel experience to fit your needs—and if you desire, arrange for a local guide.
The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”

Visit one of the nearby Maasai villages to learn more about their captivating culture that has defined this corner of Africa for centuries. Game drive through the famous Maasai Mara Reserve, home of over 40% of Africa’s largest mammals.
Say goodbye to Kenya and head to Tanzania, with a game drive and opportunity to see new wildlife en route to your camp. Settle into your hillside suite and take in the views from the private veranda, or perhaps enjoy a dip in the hotel's infinity pool overlooking the northern plains.
Start your day with a freshly brewed coffee before a safari through the Serengeti. Experience the rush of the Great Migration as herds of wildebeests and zebras gather by the thousands to move their way south.
Add some extra thrill to your journey and venture out on a walking safari. Discover the reserve by foot in the company of an experienced guide as you observe the smaller wildlife and details of the bush.

Naboisho Camp, Naboisho Conservancy
This exclusive tented camp is located in one of the most unspoilt and game-rich areas of Kenya and offers a wide range of activities including game drives, walking safaris, night drives, off-roading, and fly-camping. The eight spacious tents have been designed to combine the traditional bush style with a fresh modern feel. High levels of personalized service, along with a team that has worked together for many years, make for a warm and inviting atmosphere. View hotel website »
Sayari Camp, Mara River
The remote landscape of the Northern Serengeti inspired the design of Sayari’s 15 tented suites, which are subtle nods to the iconic flat-topped volcanic Turner Hill nearby. The rich mahogany floors and delicate tones of sand, stone, and acacia reflect the hues and textures of the natural terrain. Your suite is the ideal place to relax after a day of safari (might we add - some of the best safari viewing in the world), as is the rim-flow swimming pool that overlooks the northern plains. Unsurprisingly, Sayari is consistently awarded as one of the top safari escapes on the planet. View hotel website »
Gibbs Farm, Karatu
Gibbs is a working farm located on the forested slopes of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It embodies warm, rustic luxury; featuring 20 ensuite cottages, complete with cozy living rooms and reading nooks. Colourful artwork by local artists adorn the farmhouse walls, while outside the terraced floral gardens provide sweeping views of the valley below. Organic coffee is produced onsite, and a 10-acre organic garden provides 90% of the ingredients needed for their fresh, home-cooked meals. View hotel website »
