Africa Safari Holidays and Vacations

Facts about Kenya

Kenya is the home to one of the best tour packages in the world. Ever wondered where the word "safari" originated? Commonly used to mean tour to Africa, the word safari is a Swahili word meaning an overland journey, usually a trip by tourists to Africa. That’s how famous and preferred Safari destinations have become for Kenya. For many years, the term Safari was used to mean “big-game” hunt, however today the term often refers to a trip taken not for the purposes of hunting, but to observe and photograph animals and other wildlife. There are some other things to do on a safari, such as hiking, hot-air balloon rides, sight-seeing, charity trips, trekking, academic and research tours, conference services, sun bathing in the tropical sum, honeymoon tours, Wedding tours, Cultural exchange trip, bush dinner, eco-tourism, religious tours, medical tourism, sports tourism, etc. 

For many years, Kenya has attracted voyagers and passionate backpackers from all over the sphere. This has been the setting of some of greatest historic explorer tales - home of 'Out of Africa', a place where setting out on an adventure into the wilderness became an age old tradition.
The spirit of the Africa Safari traveler is a live today. The romance of sun-downer drinks, bush dinner evenings around a campfire, bush breakfast and dinner barbeques and nights under canvas with the distant roar of a lion, hippos, zebra, buffaloes and hyena in the African night can still be heard and experienced in African jungle.
The attractions of Kenya have always been the same, the sheer variety of landscape, wildlife, human cultures and experience. No other African country can boast such diversity within its borders. Here you will find snow capped Mount Kenya peaks and rolling Mara savannah, pristine beaches and tropical rainforest, giant herds of elephants at the Amboseli National Park and the carpet of pink flamingo that flocks the Lake Nakuru National Park and Lake Bogoria and Baringo, wandering tribesmen of Masai people and Samburu people, the dhow sailors, fishermen, Dorobo honey hunters, among others.

The Great Rift Valley

Kenya’s geographical diversity is born of the Great Rift Valley, an awesome natural divide that intersects the country from Lake Turkana in the North to the Masai Mara Game reserve in the south. An age old route for both human migration and animal migration, the floor of the Great Rift Valley is home to a series of freshwater great lakes and soda lakes, each one supporting its own unique flora and fauna. At several of the alkaline and soda lakes, the visitor can experience a true Africa adventure tour and an astonishing spectacle of millions of birds species especially that of pink flamingo (both lesser and greater) gathering together to feed and breed. The Great Masai Mara
The Rift valley is surrounded by dormant volcanoes, calderas and mountain ranges. Mt Kenya, whose striking peak (17,000ft) is held sacred by the local Kikuyu tribe, provides one of the world’s rarest sights, equatorial snow. The surrounding highland forests and Aberdare ranges are alive with the big five – the Elephant, the Buffalo, and the rare Giant Forest Hog and elusive and endangered brown-striped Bongo antelope.

Northern Kenya

The Northern plains and parts of Northern Kenya are home to roaming tribes including the Samburu people and the Rendille people, who move with their camel trains following dry riverbeds across a great semi arid wilderness. Here, rare species such as the Reticulated Giraffe, Grevy’s Zebra and Gerenuk are found.The African Leopard

Loiyangalani means "a place of many trees" in the native Samburu language. The surrounding El Molo and Turkana villages offer unique experiences. The town is home to an airstrip and lies near Mt. Kulal, known for its forest and stones. The only lodge is "oasis lodge" a few hundred meters form the airstrip. Loiyangalani was the setting for John Ie Carres novel, The Constant Gardener, and was a location for the film of the same title.

Masai People and the Masai Mara game reserve

Southern Kenya is Maasai land, and here Maasai communities maintain a long-established way of life. This is the home of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, 588 sq miles of open plains, woodlands and riverine forest. This world famous reserve supports an array of animal species with large grazing herds of Gnu, Wildebeest, Zebra, Giraffe, Gazelle, Buffalo and Topi. The Acacia woodlands are alive with thousands of beautiful bird species. The Mara and Talek rivers are home to Hippos and Crocodiles. Masai moran dancers entertaining guests at cuisine and dinner

At the Mara reserve, the whole ecosystem is profusion of life and nothing to lackadaisical attitude.
Each year the Mara river is the staging ground of one of nature’s greatest spectacles- the migration of over 1.3 million wildebeest from the Serengeti. A natural migration cycle where huge herds gather and surge across the Mara pl
ains bringing the Mara to almost standstill. The profusion of grazing animals makes the Mara a perfect hunting ground for predators. Leopard and Cheetah are often seen, but the Mara is truly the Kingdom of the Lion, and these majestic predators dominate the landscape.

Amboseli National Park

Further east is Amboseli, where large herds of Elephants move across broad dusty plains to a series of wetland sThe African Elephantwamps. The massive reserves of Tsavo East and West comprise 10 million acres of pure wilderness, a birding pilgrimage with an endless array of species of weaver birds, hornbills, sunbirds, rollers, and raptors.

Western Kenya

In Western Kenya, there is rainforest and the wide blue waters of Lake Victoria. This lake is the home of the massive Nile Perch, a challenging freshwater trophy for any game fishing devotee.

Kakamega Forest is situated in Western Province Kenya, northwest of the Capital Nairobi, and near to the border with Uganda. It is the last remnant of the ancient Guineo-Congolian rainforest that once spanned the continent. Major attractions are: Bird watching; over 300 bird species, Butterfly watching- over 400 species of butterflies; massive trees, Scenic Spots and Waterfalls, Snakes; 27 species of snakes; Primates Watching- home to Debrazza monkey and other primates.

Mombasa Kenya

The Kenyan Coastline is a paradise of palm fringed beaches and the warm inviting waters of the Indian Ocean. Extensive Coral reef systems with spectacular sea life make for world class diving and snorkelling.Beach Tourism Mombasa

The Lamu archipelago is located close to the northern coast of Kenya and home to the beautiful island of Manda, Lamu, Kiwayu and pate. Founded in the 13th century, Lamu is the oldest living town in Kenya and now a world heritage site recognized as the "the oldest and best preserved Swahili settlement in East Africa". The town is exceptionally pretty with some beautiful architecture including Lamu port as well as the intricate decorative carvings on doors, lintels and wood work which the town is famous for.

This richness and diversity makes Kenya a premium wildlife safari destination in the world. With seemingly endless wilderness and plenty of tourist places to explore, a Kenya Africa safari should be your next top vacation holiday tour choice for a spirited traveler.
