From the Great plains of the splendid peripatetic wildebeests in Serengeti to Masai Mara in Kenya to the beautiful thousand hills of Rwanda and the Roaming Nile meandering its self into the gorge, to the north of African. Sparkling into the wild waters of the Indian Ocean where our African Safari Planners know and will unify you magnificently.
Kenya remains one of the supreme places in Africa to see great wildlife – lions, elephants, leopards and of course the annual ‘wildebeest migration’ flowing into the Masai Mara from Tanzania. The East African Rift Valley runs through the country from top to bottom and provides straining landscapes of giant volcanoes, hot springs, and flamingo speckled lakes.
Dominated by Lake Turkana, the prehistoric source of the Nile, and the Rift Valley lakes are some of the most charming in Africa. The formation of the Rift created Mt Kenya, the second-highest peak in Africa, approximately three million years ago.
Tanzania is a republic of exceptional geographic diversity, from the supercilious heights of Kilimanjaro, the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, to the rolling plains of the Serengeti and the tropical beach ecstasy of Zanzibar, the spice island.
Two of Africa’s most distinguished wilderness ranges, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti are positioned within northern Tanzania and boast some of the prime concentration of game on the continent. The latter acts as a stage for one of the world’s natural phenomena as adjacent to 2,000,000 wildebeest, zebra and gazelle migrate through the Serengeti ecosystem annually. Also located here are the famous soda lakes of the Great Rift Valley, predominantly Lake Natron and Lake Manyara, which attract a multitude of flamingos every year.
Rwanda is a small, mountainous country enclosed on all sides by land that encompasses the watershed between two of the largest river systems in Africa – the Nile and the Congo. The high elevation means the climate is moderate, with two rainy and dry seasons each year, permitting for an agricultural production that is the country’s chief economic resource. Often referred to as “Pays des Milles Collines” – a country of a thousand hills – Rwanda is a far cry from the common conception of the arid and plane drylands of Africa.
Uganda’s amazingly vast pristine destinations, to this day the Nile distributes the country with the crucial life-blood, enriching the soil for agriculture, and providing abundant tourist opportunities including world-class white-water rafting around Jinja. The plenty of water also feeds Uganda’s forests, especially the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which is home to hundreds of bird species and the highest concentration of primates on Earth, as well as half of the world’s critically endangered mountain gorillas.
Around 160 million years ago Madagascar separated from the eastern coast of Africa and subsequently detached from all other landmasses, parting its ecology to evolve completely autonomously from the rest of the world. This natural separation means that over 80% of the country’s flora and fauna exist nowhere otherwise on the planet, making Madagascar indeed a distinct place and a naturalist’s dream come true.
These unique ecosystems are spread over a wide diversity of terrains and microclimates; the center is characterized by highlands, the east coast is enclosed in the rainforest, the west is open savannah and the southern portion is semi-desert. While the climate is largely tropical, here are distinct variations according to altitude and other geographical and geological factors.
The ethnicity of the island is predominately Austronesian and East African Bantu with some Arab impact, however, the most famous endemic residents on the island are the lemurs - 99 different species in all shapes, sizes, and descriptions.
There are over 12,000 species of plant as well as 170 different types of palms, 960 orchid species and 6 of the world’s 8 diverse baobabs. Madagascar’s wildlife rates amid the best in the world in terms of diversity, abundance, and approachability, it is simply incredible to convey the scale of the extraordinary natural bounty found on this island. Tropical Africa as a whole has only 3 times the plant species in an area 35 times bigger the size.
The conservation of the island’s biological resources is key to its national progress, if ever there was a place to support eco-tourism, it would be here. Merging lemurs, astonishingly stunning coastlines, diving, and extraordinary landscapes, with Malagasy hospitality, a safari to Madagascar is a wonderful adventure that will appeal to the naturalist and inner explorer.
