How about skyping live in the African Savannah. Imagine sharing with those you love the wildbeest migration or lion hunt as it happens. When you think of WIFI what comes to mind. Large cities, modern hotels, hotel lobbies in the city, airport lounge, coffee café and so on. It’s all about modern. In this world today almost everything if not all has gone online. Internet is everything. You can find almost all you need on the internet.This is what successful business is all about.

When most Business or corporate executives or families come to Africa they only expect to find internet in the hotels that they will stay in. In this age almost but not all have internet. This shuts down a person’s world until you finish your days on Tanzania & Kenya safari. Unless for those who really want to shut down from the world and enjoy their time in Africa, we have an option.

Water defying gravity – going up-hill

It comprises of different ecosystems, unique and diverse cultures, breathtaking landscapes, the seventh wonder of the world –wildebeests migration, ever smiling and welcoming people bird life and wildlife exposed by the renowned wildlife documentaries.

Experiencing the sights, sounds, smell and first impressions of all above is quite simply beyond expectations. Most people come to see the big five but there is a lot more that has not been exposed and eye catching at that. Some of the experiences are mind blowing. They will be beyond your wildest expectations.

Ever seen where water flows uphill? Guess your answer is no but there is a place in Eastern Kenya where you experience just that. No geologists yet have given a satisfactory explanation for the hills defiance of gravity and may be this should be another wonder of the world. The hill is located in Machakos, 60 kilometers east of Nairobi at a local area known as Kyamwilu.

lions on tree2 East Africa Safaris in style, Adventures with a difference

Some youth keep vigil around the hill so that there can demonstrate the “magic” to you, but its real and not a trick being played on you. With a bottle of water at hand they will pour it o the ground and everyone expects it to flow down hill. But at this magic hill the water flows up hill. Another test is to park you car at the bottom of the hill and engage free gear. The vehicle goes uphill gathering speed as it climbs up to about halfway. The car tends to climb faster if moving backward. Amazing it is. The amazing hill has become an attraction to many. It is a phenomenon that defies gravity.

This is just but one of the few attractions that are just explainable. While on Safari , inquire about this not just the animals and your Kenya safari may be beyond your imagination. info@natureboundafrica.com

A holiday like no other in East Africa

slide7581 A holiday like no other in East Africa

East Africa are countries where you can come face to face with lions and watch a cheetah take its midday nap. It’s a land where elephants have right of way. And it’s a place where the sunset chorus from the waterhole will beat Adele’s latest album hands down.

African Safari Adventures

Let’s face it, The East African heavyweight rarely crops up in a sentence without the word ‘safari’ in it. The Big Five are undoubtedly Kenya’s biggest draw, and within the country’s borders, and south into Tanzania, you’ll find world-famous parks like the Masai Mara National Reserve and The Serengeti National Park. They are home to lions, elephants, leopards – and the rest. Plus, the jagged peak of Mount Kilimanjaro as its cinematic backdrop.

Walking in the Footsteps of Early Man

East Africa got a few lesser-known highlights, too, starting with the capital cities, Nairobi, Dar-ee-Salaam, Kampala & Kigali. With all its markets and bazaars, the city are the place to pick up everything from artwork to hand-painted fabrics. Souvenir shopping is sorted all over the cities, although the stand-out here is the coastline, and the string of postcard-worthy beaches that run along it.

Good-looking beaches

white sand beaches

 

East Africa’s beaches are serious competition for the Caribbean. Blockbusters like Zanzibar, Bamburi and Diani are the places to pull on your wetsuit and explore the nearby coral reefs – or you can just park yourself on the sand. And at the quieter ones like Galu, the only thing to disturb you will be the monkeys eyeing up your lunch.

Diani Beach:

Diani Beach is a large resort on Kenya’s southern coast, about 30 kilometres south of Mombasa. It’s an upscale sort of place with a gaggle of high-class hotels and restaurants, and the beachfront bars give out a relaxed, friendly vibe. But as the name suggests, this spot’s popularity is all down to the beach – you’ve got a whopping 25 kilometres of tropical white sands to play with here.

Watamu:

Most people’s idea of paradise looks a lot like Watamu. On Kenya’s coast, 150 kilometres north of Mombasa, this isolated village is surrounded by plantations of coconut trees and mangrove creeks. It’s got a supersized white beach, perfect for lazing by day and romantic walks at dusk. And just off the shore is a coral reef that’s part of the Watamu Marine National Park and teeming with all creatures great and small.

Bamburi Beach:

As resorts go, Bamburi Beach is pretty modest. Just north of Mombasa on Kenya’s south coast, it’s a purpose-built place that lets the hotels take care of things on the eating and shopping front. It’s quite small, but when you do get out and about you’ll find a really friendly African welcome in the bars here

What to Consider When Planning a Safari

What to Consider When Planning a Safari for your Family

tumblr p3um4mxUor1snegd3o1 540 What to Consider When Planning a Safari

Looking for ideas for your next family holiday? Forget Disney World why not consider something fun and educational at the same time.  Take your children miles away from TV, video games and computers and get back to nature with an African safari with Nature Bound Africa.

Not only will children will be exposed to incredible wildlife but also a vastly different culture. Imagine your children seeing a magnificent Maasai warrior for the first time or learning to make a fire from wood and stone! What may appear to be a daunting process, planning a safari for the whole family is not as difficult as it may first appear.

Here are some things to consider before booking:

1.Countries such as Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania have more experience in dealing with families so they should possibly be your first port of call.

2. The safari peak season is June to Oct. If you are looking to save a few pennies and you are tied to travelling during the European school holidays (ie the peak season), consider visiting Rwanda or Uganda which are the exception – having their low season during these months.

3.If you are worried about long flights consider East Africa (Kenya and Tanzania) where the flights are shorter (around 8 hrs from Europe).  In saying that, an overnight flight and with the time difference either 1 or 2 hours (depending on time of year) there is no jet lag to contend with.

4. Not all safari lodges take children or allow them onto game drives. You may need to consider a private vehicle or babysitting services. Nature Bound Africa know’s the lodges which are child friendly offering specially tailored child-centred activities which will give parents a break and provide endless hours of fun and learning for the children.

5. Consider which East African countries require vaccinations and malaria tablets.

6. Don’t plan for too long on safari, if you are away for 2 weeks combine your safari with a beach break in the likes of Zanzibar or Mombasa. Most of the resorts or hotels on the beach offer kid’s clubs, brilliant activities and water sports as well as family rooms.

7. Nature Bound Africa has experience in planning family holidays to East Africa in order that it is expertly organized.

African Safari Travel Tips

African Safari Travel Tips

African Safari Travel Tips that you’ll definitely want to take into account before heading out on your next big African safari adventure.

1. Go on as many game drives as you can 
If you want to see a lot of wildlife, your chances increase in numbers. You can’t expect to see all of the ‘Big Five’ on one game drive; that’s like winning the safari lottery. Be patient, take in the amazing scenery, keep an eye out, and eventually you will see a lot of amazing wildlife.
2. Don’t miss out on a night drive

3466399665 2ac8532e87 o African Safari Travel Tips

Most of the major national parks and game reserves give visitors the option to go on a guided night drive. Make sure to do at least one! It’s a unique chance to see nocturnal animals (e.g. lions, leopards and hyenas) being active. 

3. Bring a good camera
2404544591 ebb0f0aa2b b African Safari Travel Tips
 
You’re definitely going to want to document the amazing scenery and wildlife you see. To get the best quality photos possible, a DSLR is ideal. However, if you don’t have one already and don’t want to dish out the big bucks before going on a pricey safari, it is possible to get some great photos using a good point-and-shoot with a decent zoom.
4. Get binoculars or a fancy zoom lens
4263483849 845267dd29 b African Safari Travel Tips
Most of the animals you’ll see won’t be right next to the safari truck. So if you’ll want to get a good close-up look, you’ll need a pair of binoculars (if you only have a point-and-shoot camera), or a DSLR with a big zoom lens. Of course the latter would be better because then you’ll also get amazing close-up photos, like this one:
5. Wear Earth colors

201103 a stylish traveler safari African Safari Travel Tips

Bright colors and patterns can scare away some animals, so it’s a good idea to wear clothing in neutral earth colours, which will help you blend into the natural environment.
6. Resist the urge to yell “Pumbaa!” when you see a warthog
11330921116 cf2e4b2749 b African Safari Travel Tips
Not only would this make you look slightly silly, but it would probably also scare away the warthog and any other animals that happened to be nearby. Try to generally be as quiet as possible during a game drive.
7. Don’t flash an angry elephant
5637277565 3186565d27 b African Safari Travel Tips
Elephants are a lot scarier than they might seem. These massive animals often hang out on safari routes, get very close to trucks and sometimes get pretty peeved off at tourist paparazzi (especially when there are calves about). You can tell an elephant is angry when it’s fanning out and shaking its ears. Elephants are one of the only animals that can take down a safari truck, so if you want to avoid being charged and trampled, it’s a good idea to stop taking pictures when an angry elephant is close by–this is particularly important on night drives when you’re taking pictures with flash.
8. Bring a head lamp.

When you’re camping in national parks and reserves while on safari–or really anytime you’re camping or backpacking anywhere–a head torch (otherwise known as a headlamp) is a very handy thing to have on hand. Not only will it light the way to anywhere you need to go after dark, but it’ll also leave your hands free to shuffle through your things to find whatever you’re looking for in your pack or tent, and even allow you to easily read a book in the dark. I never go on a backpacking trip without one!
