Uganda, East Africa

The less well known and visited East African country but one with so much to offer. Lake Victoria dominates part of the country and the capital area and the River Nile is an amazing spectacle as it squeezes through the Murchison Falls – one of the many sites to see. It is also home to forest gorillas and visiting them is at a price well under half of the fee charged in Rwanda. Add in the chance to see chimpanzees in their natural habitat along with National Parks of Uganda filled with usual, and endemic, plains and forest birds and animals, giving you a truly exceptional wildlife experience. Fewer tourists than the other East African countries, Uganda should appeal to those that like their safaris to be more traditional in flavour but still very welcoming and comfortable. You could even finish with a beach stay on one of the islands in Lake Victoria.

Country: Kenya

Despite recent troubles, Kenya has an unique experience to offer everyone. Yes it is the most popular country for first time “Africa” visitors but it is also a favoured destination for the seasoned safari hand. It lends itself to the “Bush and Beach” holiday and is very popular with honeymooners.

Its Lodges and hotels vary widely in size and there is the added offer of staying on ranches – many of which have reverted to acting as wildlife sanctuaries. A chance to see and get close to wildlife from the back of a horse or on foot makes for an adrenalin making experience second to none.

Kenya is blessed with stunning backdrops – Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya, The Rift Valley and the wide plains of the Masai Mara. Add in a huge variety of wildlife from the semi deserts of the northern frontier to the lush highlands and down to the tropical coast. Nowhere else can you see a million flamingos feeding in the Lake (Nakuru), herds of red dusted elephants (Tsavo), clouds of butterflies in the forest Parks (Aberdares) and the tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra (Masai Mara).

Finish your holiday on the Kenyan beaches, which are rightly famous for their silver sand, great snorkelling, diving and a wonderful place to unwind after the excitement of your safari.

The people are welcoming and appreciate their need for tourism and the benefits it can bring. With over 50 tribes, diversity is a given.

This is an ideal destination for the first time in sub Saharan Africa or for those discerning adventurers willing to seek out what the country has to offer beyond the usual.

Description

 

This is the land that spawned the safari, drawing such luminaries as Teddy Roosevelt and Ernest Hemingway. But they were here for the trophies to hang on their walls. After the war came the change in emphasis to using the camera and making safaris more accessible to others. Some would say that it went too far with too many tourists around a pride of lion or any other spectacle. But the truth is that Kenya is huge, the wildlife abundant and the safari experience can be as individual and as private as it ever was.

It is the most popular country for first time “Africa” visitors but it is also a favoured destination for the seasoned safari hand. It lends itself to the “Bush and Beach” holiday and is very popular with honeymooners.

For this suggested itinerary you have the option of being driven between locations or taking light aircraft flights. Or perhaps a mixture of both.

Day 1: Nairobi

Arrive in the capital, Nairobi. Visit the National Park, the only one in the world in a city boundary, which has all of the plains animals and the Big 5 apart from elephant. Consider a trip to Karen Blixen Museum (colonial past), the Elephant Orphanage, the National Museum of Kenya and Snake Park.

2 nights Nairobi

Day 3: Samburu National Park

Today drive north to Samburu National Park. Alternatively catch a small plane for a quick flight to the Park. Samburu is fascinating in that it is on the edge of two types of terrain – the dry semi desert of the Northern Frontier District and the lusher country around Mount Kenya. Because of this, it is home to some rare and different animals, such as Grevy’s Zebra, Gerenuk and Reticulated Giraffe. The Uaso Nyiro River runs through the Park supporting the wildlife and home to pods of hippo and good sized crocodiles.

2 nights Samburu

Day 5: Mount Kenya/Aberdare Mountains

Drive back to Mount Kenya or Aberdare Mountains for a different type of wildlife experience. Hopefully Mount Kenya will be clear making an excellent backdrop for your photos. The afternoon and evening will be spent checking the wildlife that comes out of the forest to drink and feed in the open area. After a good meal you can either continue watching the floodlit waterhole or retire to bed and ask the night watchman to give you a knock if something you particularly want to see (leopard, wild bush pig or elephant for example).

1 night Mount Kenya

 Day 6: Rift Valley

Today you will drive in to the Rift Valley with your destination being a lodge close to Lake Nakuru National Park or Lake Elementaita. The lakes here are famous for the number of greater and lesser flamingos feeding around their edge at different times of the year. Lake Nakuru has another 450 species of birds in the Park, this is a bird enthusiast’s dream. However there are plenty of mammal species to be found here, with good numbers of white rhino and the much more rare black rhino.

1 night Rift Valley

Day 7: Masai Mara

On to the world famous Masai Mara with its open plains and riverine woods. At the right time of the year, the plains are teeming with wildebeest and zebra as they migrate from one part of the Serengeti to the Mara and back again. If you are here for the migration, you will have the chance of watching the hectic and traumatic river crossing by the ungulates. You have a great chance of seeing the big cats here and also good numbers of elephant. Over 450 species of birds have been recorded here with almost 60 raptors included in this number. A wonderful way of seeing the wildlife here is to take an early morning balloon ride across the plains and finish the experience with a champagne breakfast when you land.

2 nights at Masai Mara

 Day 9: Amboseli

Amboseli is the second most popular Park in Kenya after the Masai Mara and is at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro making for the perfect backdrop for your animal photos. The rain and snow melt from the Mountain, and then permeate down to Amboseli into five swamps, two of which are now protected in the National Park. This water source is relied upon by the wild animals of the Park. All of the Big 5 are found here (although the number of rhino is much depleted due to poaching) as are good numbers of the plains animals.

Take morning and late afternoon game drives out over the plains through the Acacia forests and in to the swamps looking for those animals that are high on your wish list. Ensure you drive to the top of Observation Hill which gives you an excellent view of the Park. Take time to look at the bird life here which is prolific, colourful and in abundance. As the Park is within the Masai homeland, you will have the opportunity to visit them in their manyata and learn about their nomadic way of living.

2 nights Amboseli

Day 11: Tsavo West

Your trip today takes you in to Tsavo West National Park and you will be able to see wildlife along most of the journey. Tsavo East and West National Parks account for 4% of Kenya’s landmass and are not as busy as some of the other Parks in Kenya. However the amount and diversity of wildlife and birds (over 500 species have been recorded here) are second to none.

 Tsavo West is a mixture of plains, wooded grassland, mountains and riverine forests. There is also the spectacular volcanic mountain range of the Chyulu Hills which are well worth a visit. The Park is huge and your game drives will take you to these different areas. All of the Big 5 are represented here and the elephants are renowned for their red/brown colour. This is from their taking dust baths in the very red soil.

Drive to the top of Poacher’s Lookout for an all round viewpoint and ensure that you see the crystal clear water at Mzima Springs. Here you have the opportunity to go in to an underwater viewing chamber to see the tilapia fish and, if you are lucky, hippo walking along the bottom of the spring.

2 nights Tsavo West

Day 13: Beach

Now down to the Indian Ocean and time to relax on a silver sand beach in warm sea water. You can be as active or as lazy as you like here. For those wanting to see places, then Fort Jesus in Mombasa, the Gedi Ruins and Shimba Hills National Park are well worth considering. The water activities include snorkelling, diving, sailing and deep sea fishing.

4 nights Beach

Day 17: Depart Kenya

Today depart Kenya for the onward or homeward journey.

Vicki Tester

 

On the first of September this year the Earth, Moon and Sun are aligning in the Quirimbas Archipelago, Mozambique for a spectacular and rare annular solar eclipse.  This will be a special event in that the moon doesn’t completely cover the sun and a ring of fire will be observed around the shadow.

It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for a select few guests to experience.

One of our favourite Lodges in the Quirimbas have put together an exciting safari to see this spectacle.

The five night package includes 2 nights at Ibo Island Lodge and 3 nights fly camping.  You will observe the eclipse from a remote island beach camp in style.

The safari portion will be run with a beautiful 12 meter dhow built to Arab designs with Mozambican skipper, crew and chef on board to whip up those seafood extravaganzas around the camp fire!  You don’t sleep on board – instead mobile camps are set up on various tropical islands and special spots.  You should be sailing in calm, clear and turquoise water with local white traditional dhow sails to break up the endless view on the horizon. Then experience the best view of the eclipse in the Quirimbas from one of the most remote and beautiful corners of our world.

There are only 12 places available (as we put this up) so you need to act fast if you want to join the safari as part of your bespoke, tailor made holiday.

Please call us on Tel: 01323 446550 or email: info@experienceholidays.co.uk

For those people experiencing a safari for the first time and who are not sure how they will like it or those that know that a few days of game viewing are enough for them, the following suggested itinerary should give food for thought…

Summary

Kenya Safari and Beach

This itinerary offers a lovely combination of bush and beach and is ideal for those not too sure if the safari element will be to their taste or not.  But be warned, hardened safari-goers will tell you that Africa gets under your skin, encouraging you to return again and again:

Day 1: Mombasa, Shanzu Beach
Day 2: Tsavo
Day 3: Tsavo East
Day 4: Tsavo East
Day 5: Mombasa, Diani Beach
Day 6 to 11: Mombasa
Day 12: Depart Kenya

Kenya: Safari and Beach
For those people experiencing a safari for the first time and who are not sure how they will like it or those that know that a few days of game viewing are enough for them, the following suggested itinerary should give food for thought…

Day 1: Mombasa, Shanzu Beach
Begin with an overnight stay to the north of Mombasa on the Shanzu beach, considered one of the best on this coast. Time to unwind after the journey and to dip into the Indian Ocean.

Day 2: Tsavo
Today begin a private safari by driving inland to the Taita Hills. Take an afternoon game drive in the Taita Hills Game Sanctuary. Tsavo Park and this sanctuary are famous for their red elephants; the animals cover themselves with the red earth to act as a deterrent to insects and as a cooling agent.

Day 3: Tsavo East
After breakfast, continue the safari with a morning game drive in Taita Hills and then continue to Tsavo East. The aim will be to arrive in time for lunch at a Tented Camp. After time to settle in and let the heat of the day dissipate (watching whatever animals visit the waterhole here), head out for an afternoon game drive in Tsavo East. This whole area has good numbers of all the Big 5 but finding them is the task. Back to the camp in time for sundowners while watching the activities at the waterhole.

Day 4: Tsavo East
Today take morning and afternoon game drives in Tsavo East. It is probably worth returning to Camp to relax during the heat of the afternoon.

Day 5: Mombasa, Diani Beach
Today, return to Mombasa with the chance of game viewing en route. Your destination is to the south of Mombasa for a stay on the Diani Beach. The hotels here vary in size and cost and it does depend upon the kind of holiday that you want while staying on the coast. For the more pampered and quieter holiday, then the smaller hotels will suit. The beach is silver sand and the reef not far from the shore. Plenty of swimming, snorkelling, sailing and other water sports are available. Or just chill out.

Day 6 to 11: Mombasa
There is plenty to do here.  Mombasa is worth a visit both from the shopping point of view and also a visit to Jesus Fort in the Harbour (for the history of the place). Another trip to consider, if you have not had enough wildlife experiences, would be a day trip to Shimba Hills National Park. A different experience to your safari as this is a forested park with different animals to be seen and a greater abundance of butterflies.

Day 12: Depart Kenya
Depart Mombasa today for the onward or homeward journey.

Vicki Tester

The variety of habitat and wildlife on this short safari is amazing and at less than £840 per person (excluding flights).

Truly a feast of iconic wildlife and scenery especially as the wildebeest will have their spindly legged youngsters with them. The price for this safari is £1,330 per person (excluding international flights)

Perhaps a bit more expensive than its neighbour, Kenya, but equally as rewarding to visit. The country splits in to two main areas, the northern circuit and the south.

Up in the north, and using Mount Kilimanjaro as a back drop, there are a number of iconic National Parks. The sweeping plains of the Serengeti, rightly one of the world’s wonders when covered with hundreds of thousands of ungulates, the spectacular view in to the Ngorongoro Crater, the tree climbing lions of Lake Manyara and big herds of elephant dwarfed by baobab trees in Tarangire are just some of the reasons to come here.

Again the size and quality of the accommodation does vary to suit all needs as does the experience. If there was one thing to say about the northern circuit, it would be – do not rush it. Better to visit 2/3 Parks and spend time there rather than rush from one to the other.

Down in the South you will find the Selous National Park which has all the game of the north but needs keener eyes as it is shyer here. Add in the Rifiji River with its pods of hippo and crocs along the bank and you have an extraordinary combination.

To either of these wildlife adventures you can add a completely different experience by heading to the beach either on the mainland or the magical islands of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia. All of them are steeped in the history of the region and have much to offer in the way of exploring the sea life, the wildlife, local customs and farms (spices feature heavily). For those of you willing to explore the past, there is plenty of evidence to found in places like Stone Town, Zanzibar. Again, what a great way to finish your East African holiday.

Mount Kilimanjaro dominates the skyline of southern Kenya whether displayed in all its glory, or shrouded in its table cloth. This itinerary highlights the best of southern Kenya. 

Summary

Southern Kenya Safari

Mount Kilimanjaro dominates the skyline of southern Kenya whether displayed in all its glory, or shrouded in its table cloth.  This itinerary highlights the best of southern Kenya. 

Day 1: Amboseli National Park
Day 3: Tsavo West
Day 5: Tsavo East
Day 7: Nairobi

Description

Description

 

Using Mount Kilimanjaro as a backdrop for your photos (providing it is playing ball and not covered in cloud!), this trip takes in some of the largest Parks in Africa and places that often feature in films and animal documentaries.

This trip can be added to and by including the Northern Kenya safari route it would give you a more extensive tour of this fascinating country. Your budget will determine how exclusive your experience will be. It is possible to stay in small, well appointed camps or lodges were numbers of clients are limited to 20 or less but Kenya has the whole range of accommodation types and prices to match.

Day 1: Amboseli National Park
Begin with a drive from Nairobi to Amboseli National Park. Amboseli is the second most popular Park in Kenya after the Masai Mara and is at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro making it the perfect backdrop for your animal photos. The rain and snow melt from the Mountain, and then permeate down to Amboseli into 5 swamps, two of which are now protected in the National Park. This reliable water is relied upon by the wild animals of the Park. All of the Big 5 are found here (although the number of rhino is much depleted due to poaching) as are good numbers of the plains animals.

Take morning and late afternoon game drives out over the plains, through the Acacia forests and in to the swamps looking for those animals that are high on the wish list. Drive to the top of Observation Hill for an excellent view of the Park. Take time to look at the bird life here which is prolific, colourful and in abundance. As the Park is within the Masai homeland, take the opportunity to visit them in their manyata and learn about their nomadic way of living.

Two nights stay Amboseli

Day 3: Tsavo West
Head in to Tsavo West National Park and you will be able to see wildlife along most of the journey. Tsavo East and West National Parks account for 4% of Kenya’s landmass and are not as busy as some of the other Parks in Kenya. However the amount and diversity of wildlife and birds (over 500 species have been recorded here) are second to none.

Tsavo West is a mixture of plains, wooded grassland, mountains and riverine forests. There is also the spectacular volcanic mountain range of the Chyulu Hills which are well worth a visit. The Park is huge and your game drives will take you to these different areas. All of the Big 5 are represented here and the elephants are renowned for their red/brown colour. This is from their taking dust baths in the very red soil.

Certainly drive to the top of Poacher’s Lookout for an all round viewpoint and ensure that you see the crystal clear water at Mzima Springs. Here you have the opportunity to go in to an underwater viewing chamber to see the tilapia fish and, if you are lucky, hippo walking along the bottom of the spring.

Two nights Tsavo West

Day 5: Tsavo East
Move across to Tsavo East, which is a mixture of bush, plains and rivers crossing the Park. The Galana River runs all year whereas the Voi and Tiva rivers are seasonal. There are good size herds of elephants here and watching them coming down to drink and bathe from the top of Mudana Rock is a must. This side of Tsavo is quieter than the West giving you the feel of having an exceptional and individual experience. Again all the Big 5 are here as are all the plains animals and over 500 species of birds being recorded here.

Two nights Tsavo East

Day 7: Nairobi
Today either return to Nairobi for the onward or homeward journey, or extend your holiday with a few days of relaxation on the coast with its silver sands, clear water and beautiful corals and fish.

Kenya is the birth place of safaris as we now know them, although they originally had hunting in mind.

Summary

Northern Kenya Safari

Kenya is the birth place of safaris as we now know them, although they originally had hunting in mind. Hemingway wrote movingly about his experiences here and many other famous people have safaried in Kenya over the last century. So perhaps if you are thinking of setting out on your own safari, then the following itinerary will give you a varied and interesting trip.

Day 2: Samburu National Park
Day 4: Aberdaire Mountains
Day 5: Lake Nakuru National Park.

Kenya is the birth place of safaris as we now know them, although they originally had hunting in mind. Hemingway wrote movingly about his experiences here and many other famous people have safaried here over the last century. So perhaps if you are thinking of setting out on your own safari, then the following itinerary will give you a varied and interesting trip.

There is a perception that Kenya safaris are too crowded and the experience spoilt by the volume of vehicles around each lion, cheetah or leopard. This is not a wholly undeserved reputation, but like everything in life, you get what you are paying for. We can take you to places where there is a very good chance that your wildlife encounter will be unique, the camp site having less than a dozen visitors and the view and food second to none in Africa. Give us the challenge of finding the best value for your hard earned money.

Day 1: Nairobi

Stay overnight the city, either in one of the many iconic hotels, or perhaps at a camp site in Nairobi National Park to get your safari started.

One night Nairobi

Day 2: Samburu

After breakfast you guide/driver will pick you and drive north to Samburu National Park. This afternoon, take a first game drive in the Park. Samburu is fascinating in that it is on the edge of two types of terrain – the dry semi desert of the Northern Frontier District and the lusher country around Mount Kenya. Because of this, it is home to some rare and different animals, such as Grevy’s Zebra, Gerenuk and Reticulated Giraffe. The Uaso Nyiro River runs through the Park supporting the wildlife and home to pods of hippo and good sized crocodiles.

Two nights Samburu with game drives morning and afternoon.

Day 4: Aberdare Mountains

Drive back to the Aberdare Mountains for a different type of wildlife experience. Hopefully Mount Kenya will be clear making an excellent backdrop for photos. The afternoon and evening will be spent checking the wildlife that comes out of the forest to drink and feed in the open area. After an a good meal you can either continue watching the floodlit waterhole or retire to bed and ask the nightwatchman to give you a knock if something you particularly want to see (leopard, wild bush pig or elephant for example).

One night Aberdare Mountains

Day 5: Lake Nakuru

Today, drive in to the Rift Valley to Lake Nakuru National Park. The lake here is famous for having up to 1 million greater and lesser flamingos feeding around its edge at different times of the year. With another 450 species of birds in the Park, this is a bird enthusiast’s dream. However there are plenty of mammal species to be found here, with good numbers of white rhino and the much more rare black rhino.

Two nights Lake Nakuru

Day 7: Masai Mara

The next destination is the world famous Masai Mara with its open plains and riverine woods. At the right time of the year, the plains are teeming with wildebeest and zebra as they migrate from one part of the Serengeti to the Mara and back again. If you are here for the migration, you will have the chance of watching the hectic and traumatic river crossing by the ungulates.

A wonderful way of seeing the wildlife here is to take an early morning balloon ride across the plains and finish the experience with a champagne breakfast when you land.

Three nights Masai Mara

Day 10: Nairobi

Drive back to Nairobi for the onward or homeward journey. Alternatively, fly down to the Kenya Coast for a few days of relaxation, snorkelling or diving.
