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!

If this all sounds appealing, why not join us at our Travel Expose on the 22nd April 2015 and listen to the experts from the Africa Safari Co talk, not only about our great departure but what else they do in the Dark Continent!

My African Experience

The-Great-Migration-at-Serengeti-National-Park-Tanzania

It’s here! Our latest upcoming group departure! And this time its something really special! Africa

We are doing an amazing trip in June 2016 to Kenya and Tanzania, taking in the best of the national parks including Amboseli, Masai Mara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro to name just a few. There will be the possibility of viewing the “Big 5” (those being Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Leopard and Buffalo) as well as other varied wildlife, and we will be using a mix of hotels, farmstays, permanant tented camps and seasonal tented camps. This trip is a fantastic way to get a taste of Africa and the wildlife that the region is so well known for!

For the current Itinerary and pricing please look at the full itinerary here!

Accessibility: It should be noted that this trip is fairly easy going, so if you were hesitating to think of Africa due to mobility issues, then think again, unless you are wheelchair bound there won’t be many problems – and even for the wheelchair bound traveller there are options available.

Accommodation: For the accommodation the properties being used are all very reasonable and have been chosen for comfort as much as location, and from what you can see in the below images the permanent tented camps are equal to many four and five star hotels and the seasonal camps are still amazingly well equipped – even coming with their own toilets.

So if you think you hear Africa calling, why not give us a call to register your name for this incredible journey!
