While the above image is fairly typical of what most people expect to see in Africa – majestic wildlife, in surreal landscapes – there is much more to an African Experience than just the wildlife sightseeing – even if that will take up a huge swathe of our time. So what else is there to look forward to you may ask?
First we have the natural sights and locations. On our tour we skirt the escarpment of the Great Rift Valley. We wonder at the incredible lakes and their bird-life including Lake Naivisha, Lake Manyara and Laka Nakuru. We see the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara and the Serengeti where you even have the chance to take a balloon ride to get it all in perspective.We get a chance to see the unique landscapes of the Ngorongoro Crater and Olduvai Volcano.
Then there is how we rest at night. While we do have your usual hotel or two we expand on that and take in some of the best ways to encounter Africa with stays at permanent tented camps, some of which are better than local lodges and hotels, seasonal tented camps – located specifically to make wildlife sightseeing easier, and then there is the Ngorongro Farmstead a unique farm-style lodge that bring back tastes of regional Africa. The accommodation itself is part of the experience.
Finally there are the people of Kenya and Tanzania themselves, during our trip we will be able to see the modern cities, traditional villages and lifestyles, we will see Soapstone carving and visit local orphanages.
Wildlife, Stunning Vistas, Friendly People and a variety of accommodation – Africa is a destination with something for everyone.
