Bridging the ecosystems of the Congo and the Great Rift Valley of the east you will find a home to the biological riches of both worlds.
Reaching the depths of the cradle of the mountain gorillas and staring into the eyes of these gentle giants you will discover a different form of a *man*.

A holiday like no other in East Africa

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.
The world’s best safaris

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

 

Uganda the pearl of Africa

Uganda the pearl of Africa

Rwanda Uganda Gorilla Tracking Tours Gorilla Watching Congo Uganda the pearl of Africa

 
Its reputation of being Africa’s friendliest country originates from the fact that traditionally hospitality is a key element to its diverse population. Uganda is well  known for its low level of crimes and hassles towards tourists. As one of the mysteries of the Victorian age you can go back in time as you view the source of the Nile that starts here and flow all the way to Egypt. Be part of history that was once here.
 
Uganda is Africa’s most complete bird-watching destination
Within an area comparable to that of Great Britain, Uganda is Africa’s most complete bird-watching destination with more than a thousand species recorded here. Spread across both sides of the equator one can have the opportunity to experience the biodiversity of the various national parks and protected areas across the country. Uganda’s star attraction lies divided between Bwindi National Park and the Virunga Mountains here lays the endangered mountain gorilla the bulkiest of all living primates.
 
Lakes and Rivers
This country is endowed with mesmerizing tracts of thorn-bush savannah teaming with various rainforests. Lakes and rivers heavy with aquatic life and the glacial peaks of Africa’s tallest mountain range. Uganda chose to embrace eco-tourism based on the fact that it promotes low-impact tourism avoids the adverse environmental effects of traditional tourism and from the sale of natural resources. Adding to this choice of tourism is the fact that it also appeals to different groups of people such as tourists, environmentalists, businesses as well as governments.
 
Given the ever rising concerns and threats that global warming poses, Uganda has continued to practice eco-tourism to minimize the negative effects that global warming would not only cause to her environment but also her tourism industry.
