Linger A Little Longer with Our Special
“Stay 4, Pay 3” Beach Add-on at Kilindi Zanzibar

After all those early morning safari game drives, we invite you to unwind after your SkySafari adventure at Kilindi Zanzibar, arguably the spice island’s most romantic retreat.

Our special “Stay 4, Pay 3” beach add-on offer allows you to enjoy some well-earned rest & relaxation along the ocean, lazing on the beach and soaking up the sun. The offer includes 4 nights’ accommodation at the price of 3 at Kilindi’s spectacular pavilions, as well as flight from either Arusha or Nairobi to Zanzibar, roundtrip airport transfers to Kilindi and one full body massage spa treatment. Guests will also enjoy a private plunge pool and butler and the Kilindi Pavilions recently underwent renovations to improve the AC climate control making them even more comfortable and dare we say, cooler. Pamper yourself at Kilindi’s spa, take a private dhow cruise along the ocean or explore the island via kayak or paddleboard. A candlelit dinner on the beach is the perfect ending to your East Africa journey.

This offer is only connected with SkySafari and valid until 20th December 2022.

To find out more about terms and conditions for this special offer and to make a booking, please contact us at reservations@skysafari.com.

SKY’S THE LIMIT

Top 5 Reasons to Go on Safari in the Off Season

Traditionally considered the low season, April, May, and June are typically a bit rainier and wetter, thus known as the ‘green season’. While in the past it has been considered an unfavourable time to safari due to the challenges with game viewing, the green season is considered by most safari afficionados as the best time to explore! Here are our top five reasons to head out in the wilderness during the slower months.

Little to no crowds which means fewer vehicles, National Parks and Conservancies are quieter and you often have the open savannah entirely to yourself.

A wonderful time to see younglings with lots of baby animals being born.

Jaw-dropping sunrises, sunsets, and landscape views. The land and sky offer even sharper colours this time of year, including light streaks in the sky thanks to the clean air, making it an ideal time for photographers to get breath-taking shots.

A Birder’s paradise! Hundreds of birds and migrant bird species from the northern hemisphere head to East Africa during this time of the year. It’s also a great time to spot birds showing off their breeding plumage while they’re en-route to find water.

Opportunity to see more prey/predator encounters given the greater number of younglings being born.
