Whether you are dreaming of spotting the real-life cast of the Lion King, exploring a big city with a wildlife nearby, or relaxing on a beach that would put the Caribbean to great shame, Kenya's got every thing. Kenya is a country where you can come face to face with lions and watch a cheetah take its midday nap. Kenya is a land where elephants have right of way and a place where the sunset chorus from the waterhole will beat Adele's latest album hands down.
The Big Five are undoubtedly Kenya's biggest draw, Kenya is blessed with world-famous parks like the Masai Mara National Reserve. It's home to lions, elephants, leopards – and more. Nairobi National park is a must see while on safari in Kenya. Plus, Kenya boasts the jagged peak of Mount Kilimanjaro as its cinematic backdrop. But Kenya's got a few lesser-known highlights, germs at their own rights. All markets and bazaars, the city is the place to pick up everything from local artwork to hand-painted fabrics.
The most spectacular Kenya sightseeing tour event in the Masai Mara reserve is the Kenya migration of over 2.5million herds of wildebeest, gazelle and zebra. The animals cross from the plains of the expansive Serengeti into Kenya Masai Mara and back following the rain patterns and young grass. The migration is at its earnest in late June in Kenya.
Our 2013 promotional tour is a 10 days Kenya Explorer Safari.
The 10 day Kenya Explorer safari operates on a private basis accommodating anything from 2 - 6 passengers. The safari departs Nairobi and immediately heads north, and takes in the Mount Kenya, Samburu Game Reserve, before heading south again and visiting Lake Nakuru & Baringo. The safari then culminates with a stay at the world famous Masai Mara Game Reserve.
Our Ethiopia tours are truly exceptional as Ethiopia is a land of wonder and enchantment, a country with one of the richest histories on the African continent, a land of contrasts and surprises. Ethiopia is perhaps Africa's best kept secret. Too long unfairly represented in Western Media as a land of famine, Ethiopia is actually one of the most fertile countries in Africa. From the sweeping highlands of central Ethiopia to the incredible diversity of the cultures and coulorful people living the stunning Omo Valley, from the ancient rock hewn churches and Coptic Art of Lalibela to the cosmopolitan capital of Addis Ababa, our Ethiopia tours promise to change your perceptions and provide lasting memories of one of the most fascinating countries on the planet. Ethiopia is home to cultured and friendly people descended from some of the world's oldest civilizations. Yes Ehiopia is different. It is exceptionally different simply because it is the land of the fabled Queen of Sheba, home of the Ark of the Covenant and the birthplace of Coffee. Indeed Lucy, the world's oldest known almost complete hominid skeleton, more than three million years old, was discovered in Ethiopia. Uzaze travels will take you to where it all begun!
Our 2013 promotional summer tour is a 12 days Ethiopa historic Route.
Ethiopia historic route covers the ancient town of Axum, with its amazing carved obelisks, Christian festivals and relics, including the Ark of the Covenant; Gondar, with its castles and palaces; Lalibela, with its remarkable rock hewn churches; and the walled Muslim city of Harar. At Dire Dawa you can see cave paintings considered to be thousands of years old.
To stand within a few metres of these magnificent yet peaceful primates is the very essence of any adventure traveller, especially as it involves trekking at altitude with no paths, often for at least three hours.
This small population of gorillas live in the Parc des Volcans. Just the sight of this park early in the morning, nestling high up in the mountains and shrouded by mist, is breathtaking, as is the whole of this fertile country. Rwanda's Virunga National Park is the best place to see gorillas in the wild. Owing to the very nature of the terrain and the need to explore in order to find the gorillas, there are no paths to follow in Virunga and the guides will occasionally need to cut a way through the undergrowth.
The gorillas are almost exclusively vegetarian and are quite destructive eaters, which makes them unpopular with the farmers lower down the mountain slopes, as they will wreck a whole field just to eat one plant. For this reason, and also because of poaching, the gorillas are very carefully protected.
Our 2013 promotional Rwanda tour is a 4 days gorilla tour.
