Very few places on earth offer as many different holiday attractions as Kenya and Tanzania with the unique combination of excellent wildlife sanctuaries, glorious beaches, breathtaking scenery, a superb climate and very sophisticated accommodation.
Kenya boasts 48 game parks, 9 marine national parks and reserves. Going on safari in Kenya is an experience of a lifetime. The Aberdares National ark is a fairytale place of dense forest, misty moorlands and alpine plants. Further north is Samburu National Park, made up of 3 separate reserves - Samburu, Buffalo Springs and Shaba (where the third series of Survivor was filmed) - created by the Adamson family of “Born Free” fame.
The Masai Mara is the most popular destination for game viewing, particularly during the time of migration (August to September), when game is seen in incredible multitudes. To the east is Amboseli National Park, the ideal location from which to view Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. Mount Kenya is one of the world’s highest national parks famous for its variety of wildlife and for the climbs offered on its ice cliffs and rock faces. Tsavo is the country’s largest national park and one of the world’s biggest game sanctuaries, with over 60 major species of mammal.
Tanzania is also renowned for its magnificent wildlife, lakes, mountains and scenery and the home to some of Africa’s most famous sites - Mount Kilimanjaro, the crater of Ngorongoro, the Serengeti National Park, the island of Zanzibar and the great lakes - Victoria, Tanganyika and Malawi. A journey through Serengeti reveals a wealth of breathtaking natural wonders including Mount Kilimanjaro and Lake Victoria, Africa’s deepest lake and the source of the great Nile River. With internationally famous game parks like the Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Manyara, where wildlife roam in teeming numbers, a safari here is an unbelievable experience.
Kenya and Tanzania are the best countries to witness the migration.This is a henomenon that is beyond description - this mass exodus of 1.5 million wildebeest together with half a million zebra on a 500mile route is one of the greatest spectacles on earth.
Tanzania is also the cradle of mankind: the earliest man lived here 3 and a half million years ago, and evidence is seen at the Olduvai Gorge near Ngorongoro, where fossils and other remains have been found. Designated a World Heritage Site, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest volcanic crater with one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. Frequent game sightings in the area include the Big Five.
There’s also the island paradise of Zanzibar, separated from the mainland by a channel around 32km wide, an archipelago of over 50 tropical islands nestled in the Indian Ocean. Zanzibar and Pemba are the 2 principal islands, which are known as the “Spice Islands” because of their history as producers of cloves and their position on the ancient spice routes.
