Alphonse Island launches new ‘Bush and Beach’ experience

By Spear's

A remote island and a safari have joined forces to create the perfect luxury experience in the Indian Ocean

Alphonse Island, one of the Indian Ocean’s most exclusive, pristine and remote island resorts, has joined with a luxury Masai Mara safari camp, Cottar’s Safari Service to create a unique Bush and Beach experience.

Guests can spend a week on the luxurious and breathtakingly beautiful Alphonse Island, sunbathing on white-sand beaches, snorkelling in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean amongst the Seychelles’ best coral reefs and exploring the island’s lush landscape. It feels wonderfully remote and romantic because this idyllic island is the only accommodation in the Alphonse atoll – which consists of three islands: Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier.

After a week on Alphonse Island, fly to Kenya’s Masai Mara, Africa’s most famous game reserve, for a three- or seven-night safari. Here, guests stay in beautiful, 1920’s vintage-style tented camps, and go on daily game drives in search of the Big Five.

The Bush and Beach Package starts from $15,805.00 per person for 10 nights, based on two people sharing, including:
