Tips on Spending Safari holidays in East Africa

What is your typical itinerary for an African safari or holiday? One thing you need to focus on before identifying the African safari is adventure. There are many countries that make adventures come true on safari holidays among which is the East African safari. Think of luxury, warmth, romance, fun and pleasure-this is what Africa and East Africa offers on every safari tour or holiday. It makes sense whether it is with family or just a group of close friends looking for holidays to relax at the end of the year!

The most preferred safari destinations in East Africa include Tanzania, Kenya and then the other countries like Uganda and Rwanda to highlight your safari holiday. The safaris in Kenya or Tanzania are a wild adventure like no other.

Safaris in Tanzania

Like seen in many wildlife documentaries, Tanzania is the best good for game drives and safari walks. There are 50,000sq km of vast savannah plains and woodland forests which are a lush habitat for several species of mammals and wild birds.

The Serengeti Safari is the highlight of safaris, game drives and adventures in East and Central Africa. This Tanzania national park is home to large prides of lions, more 30,000 wildebeests, zebras, leopards, antelopes, elephants and other wild animals. Experience the beauty of this safari home on a hot air balloon ride or just a drive through the tall grasses.

Before you leave Tanzania, make sure you stop at the Kilimanjaro-which is the highest mountain in Africa and then spend the evenings at the lake Victoria shores or cool off at the beaches of the Indian ocean coast and enjoy the breeze from the turquoise ocean.

The Ideal Kenya safari

The trail of an east African safari will have a stop in Kenya. The safari capital of Nairobi is your first stop being home to the Nairobi National Park and Animal Orphanage. Yet still a Kenya safari is not complete without a trip to the famed Masai Mara Game reserve which is the route of the Great Wildebeest Migration– one of the seven natural wonders of the World. Several animals trail from the Serengeti plains in Tanzania on the hunt for lush pastures in the Mara plains in July.

Explore the best of Masai Mara on a luxury hot balloon safari ride and spend a night in one of the five star safari lodges or camps. The choice of wild adventures in Kenya brings you to the rift valley lakes of Lake Nakuru and Naivasha where flamingos camouflage the lakes into a pulsating pink mass. The road to the countryside is breathtaking crossing from the green plains of Mount Kenya to the low lying plains of northern Kenya.

While organizing an east African safari, take some time off to find the charm in Gorilla Trekking adventures that drives more than 5000 tourists every year to Uganda and Rwanda. The mountain gorillas that live in mountains of south western Uganda and northern Rwanda are half of the population of this species of endangered primates you will find no where else but in East Africa.

Getting the most of it all-

The trick to enjoying such a fun packed safari itinerary and more is getting in touch with a reliable tour operator. There are many travel and safari packages but the difference is with customized holiday packages for safari honeymoons, family holidays, beach holidays or just safaris with close friends. To get a memorable safari holiday in Kenya, make sure you consider reputable tour operators recommended by previous travelers in Kenya.
