Kenya – Emakoko, Nairobi and safari in the Masai Mara at Little Naibor – and Zanzibar (Tanzania) – Stone Town and White Sands Villa on the beach

Some news bulletins from the Wickens family trip…

Arrived at Emakoko which is just perfect. A beautiful setting and much needed haven. Everyone very excited as we saw rhino, giraffe and tons of ostriches en route from the airport. Off out shortly for more game viewing.  Thank you for yet another Laterallife triumph!

Back in Nairobi tonight – Naibor was just amazing, loved it from start to finish. The camp was just perfect for us – simple luxury, not too ott and the 2 bed tent adventurous and fun.  We saw tons and tons of game.  23 lions before breakfast today! Yesterday 5 male cheetahs, more lions, the day before a leopard and 2 week old cub and even an elephant in the camp next to the hippo pools, very close but a wonderfully safe distance across the river.  Not at all crowded and there were still plenty of magic moments with just us.  We have had the best week .. super relaxed and savouring every moment. Loved the ballooning too. All 5 Wickens very happy and having the best time. ?

White Sands Villa (Tanzania) is an amazing place. We went kitesurfing for almost 3 hours on the first day. Waking to clear blue skies and wind picking up for kite after breakfast. It’s really the most perfect place to do it and the villa is extreme, not only very lux but right next to the kite school. The whole trip has been perfect. We would not have done anything differently and we have both had our love affair with east Africa re-kindled.

“I liked seeing all the animals at the start of the trip and having an adventure. The Masai Mara was incredible.”

Zach Wickens, aged 12


“Zanzibar is amazing for kite surfing because you can walk out from the beach and you’re never in water deeper than waist high. It makes learning and improving so much easier.”

Jamie Wickens, aged 13

“I loved learning to kite surf in the crystal clear water and canoeing in the see-through canoe so I could see all the star fish, corals and fish.”

Ben Wickens, aged 8
