- Travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer -

Kenya

Kenya is a land richly end owned by nature with abundant scenic splendor,snow capped mountains, palm fringed white sandy beaches, lush farmlands and harsh deserts, misty mountains and sun kissed savannah, great herds of roaming wildlife, hospitable people with a cultural array of traditions, festivals and crafts. It’s a natural paradise and land of contrast with world famous national parks like Maasai Mara, Amboseli as well as Tsavo. For decades Kenya has attracted travellers who come to enjoy its wildlife, mountains and deserts, plus the coastal region with its white sandy beaches and ancient city states of Lamu, Gedi and malindi which date back to as far as 130BC with influence from Arab, Indian and Chinese cultures before the coming of the Portuguese and British.

 

 

The Northern District’s deserts and its astounding rift Lake Turkana to the brush and riverine gamelands of the Samburu, to the grand Laikipia Plateau, scenically and spiritually dominated by regal Mount Kenya (for which the country is named, making Kenya the only country in the world to take its name from a mountain).

 

 

 

There are many different ways to experience Kenya.  Whether you want to view a pride of lions from a 4X4 safari vehicle, walk through herds of plains game, watch a herd of elephants from the comfortable veranda of your safari lodge, track game on horseback or search for birds in a thick rainforest, the possibilities are endless.

 

 

 

Covering an area the size of France, Kenya straddles the equator, thus enjoying beautiful climate all year round with warm sunny days and pleasantly cool nights.

Tanzania

Lying just South of the equator, Tanzania is East Africa’s largest country and an immensely rewarding place to visit. Tanzania has the World famous attractions –Plains of the Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater, Snow capped mount Kilimanjaro (Africa’s highest mountain and the world’s tallest free standing mountain), Zanzibar with its idyllic beaches and historic Stone town. There is definitely more to Tanzania than these obvious highlights.

 

 

Almost everywhere you go, you will find interesting wildlife and inspiring landscapes, add to this the rich cultural diversity and activities such as hiking, snorkeling and boat safaris.

 

 

For all its natural diversity, Tanzania’s greatest asset is its people, friendly, welcome, unassumingly proud and yet reserved – you’ll be treated with uncommon warmth and courtesy wherever you go and genuine friendship are readily made.
