Leave the ordinary behind and see some of the wonders of the African continent by booking an east African safari today. East Africa is home to the beautiful and diversified nations of Tanzania and Kenya. Tanzania is not only home to the world famous Serengeti National Park, it is also well known for the annual Wildebeest Migration and the Ngorongoro Crater, which is considered one of the Wonders of the World. Kenya, long considered the jewel of Africa’s east coast, is home to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, famous for the highest concentration of wildlife in Africa, and Lake Nakuru National Park, home to millions of flamingos at certain times of the year. All this is visible under the shadows of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest point on the continent. Tanzania and Kenya are each nations with rich cultures, traditions, and natural wildlife.
An African safari will open the door to the wonders of this part of the world. These two countries are home to Africa’s big five, the elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino, and leopard. There are unrivaled herds of elephant and buffalo throughout the14 national parks and game reserves in Kenya, and the 8 national parks and game reserves in Tanzania. In addition to the big five all kinds of wildlife can be seen; hippo, gazelle, impala, and all manner of exotic birdlife.
A full one-quarter of the land in Tanzania is set aside for conservation efforts, and the protected areas of the Serengeti National Park and the enormous Selous Game Reserve Park are part of this ongoing effort of wildlife protection and conservation. Both landscapes are teeming with lion, cheetah, giraffe, hippo, and buck varieties. Tanzania is also home to the Rift Valley with the three biggest freshwater lakes on the continent, Lakes Tanganyika, Victoria, and Nyasa. An African Safari tour will visit all of these scenic and interesting locations.
Kenya is home to the most extraordinary migration each year. From August to October the Mara Game Reserve is the scene of the annual migration of the wildebeest as they travel up the Serengeti Plains in search of water and food. Anyone planning a trip to east Africa might consider booking the trip during these months. Another good reason why this is a good time of the year is because Africa is just heading out of their winter season, being in the southern hemisphere. The grasses are at their lowest at this time of year, and it is easier to see more wildlife. If you are looking for something different this year, then an African safari might just be the ticket.
