East Africa hosts an array of destinations from seeing the wildebeest migration, moutain gorillas, scuba diving off the East coast, birding and so much more…
Travelers will view an abundance of wildlife, walk the white sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean, and enjoy diverse local cultures that live in harmony with the natural fauna and flora.
Some of the top attractions in East Africa include climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, driving into the Ngorongoro Crater to see the Masai tribesman in the Mara walk their cattle and goats among black rhino and large lion prides, and drifting over the Serengeti plains in a hot air balloon while watching a golden sunrise over a landscape filled with millions of wildebeest and a number of other unique animals.
Most parts of East Africa are well-explored and are a photographer’s heaven. The southern parts of East Africa are well known now for the large game reserves and the National Parks, for example, the Selous Game Reserve or Ruaha National Park. Most National Parks are easily accessible by small aircraft, and there are fewer lodges and people.
One cannot visit East Africa and not make a side trip to the Spice Island of Zanzibar or the Seychelles. Zanzibar and the Seychelles and their surrounding islands offer sweet tropic relaxation after an adventurous safari experience. The islands waters are teaming with fish and corals, perfect for snorkeling and diving.
Tourism to East has increased significantly in recent years. The expanse of this large and safe area and the range of experiences and activities are probably best enjoyed with a personalized tour itinerary, based on what is most important to you.
