Why You Should Consider Joining Us On An African Experience

photo (21)

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.

Travel to the Dark Continent!

Few places capture the imagination as much as Africa, perhaps its the old tales of the Dark Continent, with dangerous wildlife and primitive tribes,  or maybe its the growing appeal of wildlife sightseeing or cultures so different to what we know and see regularly. Either way, many people have a desire to visit Africa.

Which is why we are going there! Setting out in mid 2016 we will encounter the highlights of Kenya and Tanzania, staying in a variety of accommodation from Hotels to Lodges, from Permanent Tented Camps to Seasonal Camps.

Travelling from Amboseli to Serengeti, from the Masai Mara to Ngorongoro and more you will have the opportunity to discover the Big 5 and more!
