The African continent is three times bigger than the United States of America, covering an incredible 11.3 million square kilometers of dramatic and diverse landscapes and wildlife.
Home to 54 countries, over 3000 indigenous tribes and 2000 African languages, choosing a country or two to visit for an epic African Safari vacation can be daunting.
Hospitality Afrika Safari has over 30 years of experience in African tours and a vast network of trusted lodges, service providers and tour operators to curate a custom-made African vacation tailored to your interests and dream experiences.
East Africa has a long standing and well developed tourism industry, and some consider East Africa the ultimate African destination. Neighbouring countries, Kenya and Tanzania, are synonymous with an African safari. The actual word was coined from the Swahili word for “journey”.
These two countries share access to Lake Victoria and offer extensive game reserves as well as coastal playgrounds in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania shares a border with the famous Masai Mara in Kenya. The Great Wildebeest Migration occurs here when over two million wildebeest and other game move across the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. Timing is everything when planning a Serengeti safari, as the massive zebra herds move through the national park throughout the year as they follow the rains.
Where to stay and when to visit is crucial if you want to witness the migration. With extensive knowledge of the East Africa migration, our team are on hand to assist you with planning your safari to the Serengeti.
Experience the wildlife of the Ngorongoro National Park, and visit the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Ngorongoro Crater. Formed over 2.5 million years ago when a massive volcano collapsed, it now supports a rich diversity of vegetation due to the fertile ground and an impressive variety of wildlife, including the Big Five. A game drive into the 1968 feet deep crater is an unforgettable experience.
Kenya is one of Africa’s finest safari locations. The Masai Mara Reserve shares a border with Tanzania and is integral to the Great Wildebeest Migration. Amboseli National Park, with Mount Kilimanjaro as the backdrop, is well worth the visit. The culture and community are an integral part of the Kenyan experience. Steeped in cultural history, the Masai will leave a lasting impression on you whether you simply engage with the staff at one of the luxury safari lodges or choose to head out into one of the many Masai communities during your stay.
Beach and Bush.
After a busy safari adventure, downtime next to the ocean offers a more tranquil nature experience. Soak up the sun or spend days enjoying the coral reefs, tropical fish, sunset cruises and watersports.
Relax in Zanzibar, a tropical beach paradise off the Tanzanian coast. Known as the spice island, it offers some of the best East African beach locations imaginable.
Kenya’s Mombasa Coast and Lamu Archipelago provide many remote beach settings suitable for anything from honeymoons to multi-generational family vacations. Our experts will select the right location to fit your needs.
