Rwanda where Africa comes together
A holiday like no other in East Africa
The world’s best safaris
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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
