PRIVATE TOUR TO THE KENYAN COAST
The Coast is a world apart from “upcountry” Kenya and in many ways it feels like a different country .For a start,Mombasa,Kenya’s second city ,is a much easier place to enjoy than Nairobi.With its sun-scorched ,colonnaded sTreets ,this is the quintessential tropical port-steamy and unbelievably dilapidated ,but not lacking in atmosphere-and its fun to shop here, stroll the old city’s alleys, or visit “Fort Jesus.To the north and south of Mombasa there are superb beaches and a number of tourist resort areas,but nothing ,as yet ,highly developed in the Florida or Spanish costa sense. You can certainly enjoy yourself having a lazy time at a beach resort, but theres a lot more to the coast than recliners, swimming pools and buffet meals.
Most obviously, the beaches are the launch pad for one of the most beautiful coral reefsin the world. With equipment, you can do some spectacular dives,but even with a simple snorkel and mask,which are easily obtained, you can explore beneath the surface,to discover what really is another world.The two most spectacular areas are enclosed in marine national parks ,around Watamu and Malindi,and at the island of Wasini.
The string of islands that runs up the coast-Wasini,Funzi,Chale,Lamu,Manda,Pate and Kiwaiyu-are all very much worth visiting. Apart from their beach and ocean attractions, most of them have some archeological interest, which is also a constant theme on the mainland: the whole coast is littered with the ruins of forts, mosques,tombs,and even one or two whole towns. Some of these-including Fort Jesus ,the old town of Lamu and the ruined city of Gedi-are already on the tourist circuit, but there are dozens that have hardly been cleared and make for quite compelling excursions.
Islam has long been a major influence on the coast, and the traditional, annual fast is widely observed during the month of Ramadhan, when no food or drinks are consumed during the hours of daylight. Visiting the coast at this time might leave a slightly strange impression of a region where everyone is on night shift, but in practical terms it usually makes little difference .The end of Ramadhan is marked by major festivities, as are several other Muslim holidays throughout the year.
Plenty of visitors-perhaps the majority, in fact-treat the coast as their main destinations in Kenya, combined with a short safari inland. There are four main, popular resort areas. First and foremost is the suburban district north of Mombasa island, often known as “North Coast”, around half an hour to an hour from the airport, further north comes Watamu,about two hours from Mombasa ad lastly Malindi ,another twenty minutes beyond Watamu. South of Mombasa ,the main focus of the “South Coast”in Diani Beach,about an hour-and-a halfs drive from the airport on a good day ( the ferry can delayyou) .Apart from the odd small development ,the rest of the coast is virtually untouched by tourism.
In many areas along the length of Kenya’s coast, the sea is very shallow at low tide and in some places its impossible to swim except at high tide. If you’re concerned about the state of the tides, consult the tide tables in the online edition of Coast Week.The lagoon inside the reef is reasonably safe for swimming all year round. Beyond the reef, however, conditions can be radically different. If you’re planning to go beyond the reef-to dive or go fishing, for example –always check that your boat has a useable life jacket for each passenger.
If you’re on a budget, a word of warning tempting as it can be, sleeping out on the beaches is nearly always unwise because of the danger of robbery. Although there are one or two very remote areas you might get away with it, you’ll usually have to find a room or pitch your tent at one of the few campsites.
This part of Kenya, with its monsoon climate ,is the region most affected by the seasons.The somewhat unpredictable “long rains” between April and June are a much cheaper and quieter season than the rest of the year. While the beaches tend to be damp and the weather overcast during this low season ,you can make big savings on pre-booked holidays or,if you’re travelling independently ,reduce your hotel or rental costs by fifty percent or more-and if you’re diving ,the water clarity is still good.Its worth noting, however ,that smaller hotels, especially the more upmarket establishments, often close during the low season. While the sea is warm all year (averaging 25-30 degrees) underwater visibility varies greatly ,from as little as fice metres from June to September ,to as much as thirty metres in December ,October, November and March are usually the best overall months for weather and water visibility ,though it can be very ot in February and March in the build-up to the “long rains”. As for Indian Oceans monsoon winds, they always blow onshore the dry, moderate kaskazi wing blows from the northeast from November to April: then the moister and stronger kusi blows from the southeast from May to October ( the changeover period is often very gusty), and in this season large quantities of seaweed often sweep up onto the beach. In July ,August and September there is generally quite a strong breeze, with choppy seas. From December to February ,on the other hand,its hot and dry ,and much calmer.
MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE
For along list of reasons ,Maasai Mara is the best animal reserve in Kenya.Set at nearly 2000m above sea level,the reserve is a great wedge of undulating grassland in the remoter,sparsely inhabited southwest part of the country, snuggled up against the Tanzanian border and,indeed,an extension of the even bigger Serengeti plains in Tanzania.This is a land of short grass and croton ushes ( Mara means “spotted “ because of the yellow cottons dotted on the plains), where the wind plays with the thick,green mantle after the rains and, nine months later,whips up dust devils from the baked surface.Maasai Maras climate is relatively predictable, with ample rain,and the new grass supports an annual Wildebeest Migration of up to one and a half million animals from the dry plains of Tanzania.
At any time of the year,the Mara has abundant wildlife .Whether youre watching the migration ,or a pride of lions hunting,a herd of elephants grazing in the marsh,or hyenas squabbling with vultures over the carcass of a buffalo,you are conscious all the time of being in a realm apart. To trave; through the reserve in August or September, while the wildebeest are in possession ,feels like being caught up in the momentum of a histroric event. There are few palces on earth where animals hold such dazzling sway.
With its plentiful vegetation and wildlife, the reserves eco-system might at first appear resilient to the effect of huge numbers of tourists.However,the Mara is the most visited wildlife area in Kenya, and the balance between increasing tourist numbers and wildlife cant be maintained indefinitely .Off-road drving kills the protective cover of vegetation and can create dust bowls that spread like sores through the effects of natural wind and water erosion and become muddy quagmires in the rain.
The vast majority of visitors come on pre-booked air or road safari packages which can work out cheaper than making independent arrangements.If youre travelling on a budget ,your,ll have to accept that the reserve is not a cheap option and even organized budget-camping safaris can seem expensive.
Accomodation in Maasai Mara is in safari lodges,tented camps,campsite both budget and luxury owned by dig=fferent hotals chains within East Africa Safari parks.We have private flights using helicopters and aircraft for air taxi,scenic & sightseeing safaris,filming safaris within the safari parks at veruy competitive prices.
AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK KENYA
#airsafaris#tourpackages$flightsAmboseli#scenicsafaris#sightseeingsafaris Amboseli National Park, the Masaais “Place of Dust” ,is a small and very touristy park.Scenically,however,it is totally redeemed by the stunning spectacle of Kilimanjaro towering over it and, as in those clinched but irresistible photos taken with telephoto lenses appearing almost to fill the sky. In the right light, the snowy massif, washed coral and orange, is devastatingly beautiful. Sunrise and Sunset are the most likely times to see the mountain, especially during the rainy season when the ai is much clearer, but for the most part it remains tantalizingly shrouded in a thick shawl of cloud.
On the animal side, Amboseli,like Tsavo,is Elephant country par excellence. You will see large herds, some with big tusks,Predators,apart from hyenas and jackals, are relatively scarce ( lions are almost absent, thanks to the revenge wrought by the Masaai upon the expulsion of them and their herds from the park) ,but good numbers of herbivores are present .In the dry season ,most of the animals crowd into the impenetrable marshy areas and Patches of acacia woodland where food plants are available .But during and shortly after the rains the picture is different ,the animals more dispersed and the landscape greener.
The only budget accommodation is the Amboseli Community Campsite just outside the park boundary at junction #37.There are two reliable lodges and a luxury tented camp effectively inside the park,but a clutch of camps and lodges with much less certain credentials has sprung up just outside the park, near Kimana Gate in the Southe
ast .If youre booking a safari that includes a stay in that area,bear in mind that there is park daily entry fees restrict the number of game drives, you do inside the park, whose swamp and woodland habitats are worth paying for.We have Amboseli Serena Lodge Southern Park area, near Enkongo Narok Swamp,Ol Tukai Lodge Ol Tukai area and Tortillis camp just outside the southern park boundary accessible only via park.
MOUNT KENYA NATIONAL PARK
An extinct volcano some 3.5 million years old, Mount Kenya is Africa’s second –highest mountain, with two jagged peaks. Formed from the remains of a gigantic volcano plug-it rose more than 700m above sea-level until a million years ago-most of its erupted lava and ash have been eroded by glacial action to create the distinctive, craggy silhouette. The peaks are permanently iced with snow and glaciers, the latter under retreat due to climate change. On the upper slopes ,altitude and the equatorial location combine to nurture forms of vegetation, seemingly designed by some 1950s science-fiction writer, that exist only here and at one or two other lofty points in East Africa. When you first see them ,its hard to believe the “water –holding cabbage’” ostrich plume plant”or “giant grounded”.
Johann Ludwig Kraft saw it in 1849 ,but his stories of snow on the equator were not taken seriously. But in 1883 the young Scottish traveler, Joseph Thomson, confirmed its existence to the outside world. The Kikuyu ,Masaai and other peoples living in one region had venerated the mountains for centuries, and park rangers still ccassionally report finding elderly Kikuyu high up on the moorlands, drawn by the presence of Gog-Ngai-Whose dwelling place this is.It is not known ,however, whether anyone had scaled the peaks before Sir Halford Mackinder reached the highest of the two,Batian ,in 1899.Another thirty years passed before Nelion , a tougher summit, was conquered.Both were named by Mackinder’s expedition after nineteenth-century Masaa Laibon,or ritual leaders.
The KWS-managed national park encloses all parts of the mountain above 3200m plus salient down the Nro Moru and Sirimon streams,and,inside this area fees to be paid, and strict rules control your activities.Outsie this zone, surrounding thenational park, lies the Mount Kenya National Reserve in which your movements are normally only limited by your inclination and equipment( though on some access roads,suich as the one for Mountain Lodge fees are payable even in the reserves).

SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK TANZANIA
As one of the worlds most famous wildlife areas,the Serengeti needs litte introduction .Bordering Ngorongoro in the east,Kenyas Maasai Mara Game Reserve in the north ,and reaching to within 8km of Lake Victoria in the west,the Serengeti is also Tanzania’s largest national park,and any safari here promises wildlife galore. Especially when the annual migration of thenplains game-mainly wildebeest and zebra and their natural predators-is in reseidence .The migration ,which swings up to Maasai Mara, also passes through Loliondo ,a remote and little-visisted wilderness sandwiched between Serengeti ,Ngorongoro,Lake Natron and the Kenyan border,Loliondo contains number of upmarket tented camps offering much of Serengetis wildlife in exclusive wilderness concessions, and if youre coming by rented car, arough road through the area from Serengeti gives an alternative-and highly adventurous-way of getting to and from Lake Natron.As Tanzania’s oldest and largest national park,and one of the worlds best known wildlife sanctuaries, the 14,763-square-kilometre Serengeti National park is one of the jewels in Tanzanias wildlife crown.Protected since 1929,at a time when trophy hunters were wreaking havoc on wildlife population ,and declared a national park in 1951,the Serengeti is also –together with Ngorongoro- a UNESCO Workld Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve.And with good-reason-the Serengeti lies at the heart of the worlds largest and most impressive wildlife migration at the peak of which it contains the highest concentration of mammals on earth.
Serengeti takes its name from the grassland plains that cover the eastern section of the park next to Ngorongoro,which the Masai called Siringet,meaning “Endless plain”. Along with the Kalahari,these plains are the Western imaginations archetypal African landscape,and the highlight of many a visit, certainly when the migration is in full swing.Even outside the migration,theres plenty to see, including large clans of hyenas and thriving lion prides and a series of weathered granite outcrops called Kopjes (pronounced –kop-yees:from Afrikaans for “little head”one of which contains rock paintings,and another a mysterious “rock gong”.
Theres plently of accommodation both inside and outside the park,but the luxury tented camps and lodges inside the park are often fully booked months ahead,even for low season, despite their prohibitive prices.For most visitors ,the choice just depends on how close you want to be to the wildlife migration.When chosing ,don’t forget Ndutu Safari Lodge in Ngorongoro right on the Serengeti border. Accommodation outside the park Kirawira Tented camp,Lobo Wildlife Lodge, Serengeti Migration camp,Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge,Serengeti Sopa Lodge,Seronera Wildlife Lodge and TANAPA Rest house. Outside the park Ikoma Bush Camp,Nyatwali Beach Lodge,Serengeti Stop Over,Spoke Bay Lodge.
LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK TANZANIA.
Set against the impressive 600m-high backdrop of the Great Rift Valleys western escarpment, Lake Manyara National Park, which covers the lakes northwestern corner, is a rare flash of green in an otherwise unremittingly dry land..Much of the parks land area is covered by groundwater forest or thick bush,which-though it makes spotting wildlife harder-allows an intimate and heart-stopping sense of being in the wild when an animal suddenly appears as you turn a corner.
For its small size,the park contains a wide range of habitats: evergreen ground-water forest in the north fed by springs, a swampy fan delta crowning the top of the lake,acacia woodland at the foot of the scarp scattered with baobab trees,a small grassy plain: and ,of course ,the lake itself .Together ,they provide an oasis for wildlife,and the presence of year-round water also makes the lake p[art of the same migratory system at the heart of which is Tarangire.Manyara is perhaps most memorable for its elephant ,which number around three hundred-down from 640 in the 1960s but recovering well from the disastrous poaching of the 1980s.Other impressive denizens included buffalo ,sometimes in large herds, which feed onsedge by the lakeshore,and two hundred hippos ,seen in water pools in the northern fan delta,Antelope include impala, bushbuck and waterbuck, and agile klipspringers on the rocky escarpment wall.Other plains game include zebra,giraffe,mongoose and warthog, together with their predators ,leopards ,and, famously tree-climbing lions .which are sometimes seen resting up in the boughs of acacia trees south of the groundwater forest-your best bet for spotting them is between June and August. The reason for their arboreal prowess is a mystery, though there’s no shortage of possible explanations, the most plausible of which is their attempt to avoid the unwelcome attention of tsetse flies. The phenomenon isn’t unique to Manyara-lions have also been seen up in trees at Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Selous.
The shallow lakeshore is especially favored by water birds ,including pelicans, storks, herons, ibis, jacanas,agrets,plovers and lots of ducks and geese.But the undoubted avian stars are the vast flocks of pink flamingos, attracted by the profusion of algae in the lakes shallow,alkine waters.
Primates are represented by blue monkeys and vervet monkeys in the forest,and numerous baboon troop[s.The vervets are preyed on by crested hawk wagles,one of Manyaras over 380 bird species –for many visitors, the parks great highlight. Birdlife is at its most spectacular in the form of large flocks of flamingos feeding on the lakes algae. The algae are supported ,in turn ,by a series of picturesque hot springs along the shoreline, heated by geothermal activity associated with the Rift Valleys ongoing expansion.
Accommodation inside the park is limited to park-run campsites and bandas, and an obscenely overprices tented camp that has not been reviewed. We have TANAPA Bandas just inside the park gate –through –through TANAPA in Arusha, TANAPA public campsite just inside the park gate.
NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA TANZANIA
“The eighth wonder of the world” is the clarion call pf the brochures ,and for once they’ve not far wrong. The spectacular 8288-square-killometre Ngorongoro Conservation Area occupies the volcanic highlands between the Great Rift Valley and the Serengeti Plains.Its the product of the volcanic upheavals that accompanied the formation of the Rift Valley,and its varied habitats virtually guarantee sightings of ‘the big five”-elephant,lion,leopard,rhino and buffalo. For animals ,this place is a haven : for tourists, its something close to heaven.
Coming from the east,the magic begins the instant you pass through Lodoare Gate.The rroad begins to climb up through the tall and liana-festooned Oldeani Forest,giving way to an unforegettable view of Ngorongoro Carter ,an ever-changing patchwork of green and yellow hues streaked with shadows and mist.At its centre Lake Magadi reflects the silvery sky,while on the western horizon,theres the seemingly endless shimmer of the Serengeti Plains.The 19km-wide crater is Ngorongoro incomparable highlight, a vast,unbroken caldera left behind when an enormous volcano collapsed. Its grasslands ,swamps,glades,lakes and forests contain vast numbers of herbivores ,together with Africas highest density of predators.Game viewing, needless to say,is phenomenal ,as is the abundance of photo opportunities ,the craters deep,bluish-purple sides providing a spectacular backdrop to any shot.The crater also contains a few highly endangered black rhino ,which despite their disastrously reduced population (now about twenty) ,are easily seen.Birdlife is pretty decent ,too,and includes ostriches,Verreauxs eagles, Egyptian vultures, Kori bustarbds and lesser flamingos,the latter feeding on soda lakes occupying Ngorongoro and Empakaai craters,and at LAKE Ndutu on the border with Serengeti.
Although the crater is often all tha tourists see of Ngorongoro,theres much more besides.In the west ,the rolling hills give way to the expansive grassland of the Salei Plains ,which receive a good part of the Serengetis annual wildlife migration between December and April .Both hyena and cheetyah are frequently seen here,though in the dry season the plains resemble a desert.Right on the edge of the plains is a remarkable geological fissure,Oldupai Gorge ,famous among paleontologists as the site of important hominid finds dating back millions of years.To the northeast,close to the edge of the Great Rift Valleys escarpment ,are two smaller craters,Olmoti and Empakaai,which are also rich in wildlife yet see very few visitors. The craters form part of the so-called Crater Highlands ,which can be visited on foot if accompanied by an armed ranger-an exciting if hair-raising prospect. For those with more time, and a sturdy pair of legs,its also possible to walk across the highlands from Ngorongoro to Lake Natron via Oldonyo Lengai volcano,a journey that can take anything from two to seven days .
The only regular accommodation inside Ngorongoro is at a number of expensive lodges ,all but one on the crater rim-and that one is often fully booked months in advance.Enviromentally and ethically ,however ,none of the caretr-rim lodges enjoys an unblemished reputation .Camping is in many ways better-for the feeling of being in the wild and because its much cheaper. There are more campsites and also much cheaper hotels, outside the conservation area in Karatu.
Campers can choose between one public campsite ,which doesn’t require reservations and several special campsites ‘which are often bloc-booked by safari companies months if not years in advance.
We have Ndutu safari lodge next to Lake Ndutu on the border with Serengeti,Ngorongoro Serena Lodge on the crater rim ,Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge on the crater rim,Ngorongoro Wildlife Loge on the crater rim .
TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK TANZANIA BY SCHEDULED OR PRIVATE FLIGHT
Occupying almost four thousand square kilometers of pure Rift Valley wilderness southeast of Lake Manyara, Tarangire comprises Tarangire National Park and the adjacent Tarangire Conservations Area. Uncrowded and unspoiled, they possess a wild and unkempt beauty, and contain pretty much every animal species you’re likely to see on safari with the exception of rhino, which were wiped out here by poachers in the 1980s.Tarangires signature attractions are elephants (head counts of several hundred a day are not unusual) ,and baobabs, weird ,ungainly and hugely impressive trees that can live for several thousand years, providing wonderful silhouettes for sunset photographs.
The areas ecological importance stems from the Tarangire River, which loops through the park in an anticlockwise direction, emptying into the shallow and alkaline Lake Burunge just outside the parks western boundary. A bare string of isolated waterholes in the dry season, the river is in spate during the rains, and is the catalyst for an annual wildlife migration animals stay all year round however, including significant numbers of elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, zebras, ostriches and warthogs, and a full range of antelopes.
Also present predators-lions can usually be viewed lazing around by the river and, with luck, you might also catch sight of a leopard (best seen in the adjacent conservation area, where night game-drives by spotlight are allowed) Cheetahs exist but are rare, as the long grass doesn’t favor their hunting techniques, and you’d also be lucky to see hyenas, whether spotted or striped.
The best time to visit is July to October or November for the national park when wildlife concentrations are second only to the Serengeti-Ngorongoro ecosystem. The conservation area is also good at this time, but even better when the migration is passing through, during December-March and May and June, though long grass immediately after the rains may hinder visibility.
Suffice to say that amongst the tourists who have managed to visit it,Tarangire sits alongside Ngorongoro as one of the most popular and beautiful parks in Tanzania.
Apart from some very basic guesthouses along the highway at Makuyuni and Kigongoni ,the cheapest accommodation is camping ,either outside the park in some very average campsites, or –much better-inside the park. There are lodges and tented camps in both the park and adjacent conservation area: the latter has the edge in being able to offer night game-drives and bush walks, though walks should eventually also be possible inside the park (currently only from Olivier’s Camp),but probably only for overnight visitors.
The parks public campsite is 4km south of the main gate .There’s plenty of shade, few tsetse flies, flush toilets and cold showers. Deeper in the park are several special campsites, which should be booked and paid in advance at TANAPA headquarters in Arusha though you may strike lucky if you just turn up. None has facilities of any kind, and they are often unnervingly close to wildlife.
Accommodation at the park Oliver’s Camp east of Silale swamp,70km inside,Swala camp close to Gursi Swamp ,67km inside, Tarangire Safari Lodge high above the Tarangire River, Tarangire Sopa Lodge south of Matete,32km inside ,Boundary Hill Lodge 47km from the highway,Kikoti 6km from the park,Naitolia Camp 18km from the highway, Bounty Hill Lodge located in baobab and acacia-studded woodland and Tarangire Tree Tops 37km from the highway.
TOUR TO ZANZIBAR BY SCHEDULED OR PRIVATE FLIGHT
The Zanzibar archipelago is Of Africa’s most bewitching destinations, the name itself evoking palm-backed beaches, languid tropical waters and colorful coral reefs .But the islands are more than just the backdrop for dedicated beach bumming .Their history is a visitors book of peoples from around the Indian Ocean and even the Medirerranean,each of whom left their mark, whether in the form of ruined palaces ,fortresses or citadels ,or Zanzibar’s famous cuisine, or some very strange but enjoyable cultural events ,including Pemba’s Portuguese-style bullfights, and Makunduchis raucous celebration of the Persian New Year.
Unguja is the archipelagos main island ,and the one with the best beaches .The historical Stone Town ,part of the capital Zanzibar Town, is an alluring Arabian-style labyrinth densely packed with mansions, palaces and bazaars, most of them constructed on the back of the nineteenth-century slave trade ,which Zanzibar controlled .Ungujas sister island of Pemba ,48km to the north ,is quite a contrast. With few beaches to write home about, tourist facilities are extremely limited, so the main reason for coming is for scuba diving. History buffs can poke around a host of medieval ruins dating from the height of the Swahili trading civilization, whilst nature lovers have Ngezi Forest, an incredibly dense tangle that’s home to unique birds, and the giant Pemba fruit bat.
The greedy sp[ider as the heart of East Africa’s slave trade was STONE TOWN,the historical part of Zanzibars capital ,Zanzibar Town. Known locally as Mji Mkongwe (“Old Town”) ,it resembles the medinas of North Africa and Arabia,with its maze of narrow twisting streets, bustling bazaars and grand Arabian and Indian mansions .In spite of its medieval appearance (ably helped along a most inimical climate as far as wood, masonry and roofs are concerned),the town is relatively sprightly ,mostly dating from the last 150 years. Wandering about aimlessly here is a pleasure in itself ,but there are also specific places to aim for, including the harrowing cells of Africa’s last slave market, two cathedrals linked to the slave trades abolition, and –along the waterfront-two majestic palaces ( now museums) and a brooding Omani fortress.
Equally beguiling are several attractions within day-tripping distance, including Zanzibar famous spice tours, a handful of reef-fringed islands for often magical snorkeling ,ruined palaces and baths, and a former Anglican mission whose botanical garden is a superb spot for birding.
