The Perfect African Holiday….Bush and Beach in One Trip…

The girls and I (plus a few friends) went off on holiday Monday last week. I wandered off earlier to check up on X in Mombasa. We all linked up in Voi on Monday at Manyatta Camp.

Manyatta is a tented camp located within Voi Wildlife Lodge. Each tent has its own private pool.

Upon entering the tent, you come across a workspace, with the bathroom on your right and the shower on your left.

The restaurant area is strategically located above a stream overlooking Tsavo National Park. We were lucky enough to see a herd of elephants re-hydrating while we had dinner one evening…

From the jungle we made our way to the bewitching Diani beach (South Coast) where we stayed at Afrochic.

Afrochic has the best service in all of Diani. The food was divine, especially the lobster and the mixed sea food platter.
