Lake Nakuru is famous for the big populations of Flamingos that number hundreds / thousands during the dry season. The Park also contains Kenya’s largest population of rhinos.

Lake Nakuru is one of the Rift Valley soda lakes at an elevation of 1754 m above sea level. It lies to the south of Nakuru, in the rift valley of Kenya and is protected by Lake Nakuru National Park.

The lake’s abundance of algae used to attract a vast quantity of flamingos that famously lined the shore. Other birds also flourish in the area, as do warthogs, baboons and other large mammals. Eastern black rhinos and southern white rhinos have also been introduced.

The lake’s level dropped dramatically in the early 1990s but has since largely recovered. In 2013, the lake received an alarming increase in the water levels that led to the migration of flamingos to Lake Bogoria in search for food supply. . Dinner and overnight.

“.. The only living things which look as if they really belonged to it are the Wild Animals. Between the animals and Africa there is an understanding that the human beings have not yet earned.” Laurens van der Post, Venture to the Interior, 1963…

Today, the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and the Maasai Mara Game Reserve across the border in Kenya, protect the greatest and most varied collection of terrestrial wildlife on earth, and one of the last great migratory systems still intact.

The Serengeti is the jewel in the crown of Tanzania’s protected areas, which altogether make up some 14% of the country’s land area, a conservation record that few other countries can match.

About 20kms across, 600 meters deep, and 300 sq. km in area, the Ngorongoro Crater is a breath-taking natural wonder. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos, and other water birds can usually have been seen here.

The majority of travelers to the region either miss out Tarangire altogether or venture into the park for a matter of hours leaving parts of Tarangire virtually untouched.

Breakfast at the hotel, a transfer to the airport for your flight to Zanzibar, arrive meet and greet by your guide and transfer to the hotel Zanzibar Serena Hotel

Right on the northernmost point of the island, the beach that surrounds this area is truly stunning. Azure waters and white sands are what await those that come here. The only drawback really is that many of the hotels have had to perch on the coral cliffs that run north from the village and, as such, lose their beaches at high tide. Generally, however, this is not a problem and, with the small backpacker community in the village, this is a great place to head if you like to get out of the hotel for a drink or two.

Leisure breakfast at the hotel, a full day stone town tour, and Jozani forest tour evening transfer to Nungwi for dinner and overnight at The Gold Zanzibar Hotel Lying off Tanzania’s coast, the Zanzibar Archipelago consist of over 50 islands, most of which have a long history and a rich cultural mix. The best-known island here is Zanzibar (or ‘Unguja Island’, as it is more properly known, the older settlements are quite distinct from the later lordship of Oman and Muscat. When the Portuguese arrived in 1498 they found on the coast a series of independent towns, peopled by Arabs, but not united to Arabia by any political tie. Their relations with these Arabs were mostly hostile, but during the sixteenth century, they firmly established their power and ruled with the aid of tributary Arab sultans. This system lasted till 1631 when the Sultan of Mombasa massacred the European inhabitants.

Our safari surpassed all expectations. It was planned to suit our needs, with good communication and service in the run-up to the trip. The trip itself was superb in every way from beginning to end. ...

Last November I decided I wanted to celebrate my big 35th birthday with a safari in Tanzania and my dad onboard. I was looking for a father-daughter adventure of a lifetime and that's exactly what we got!
