Famed as the birthplace of the safari ( 'journey' in Swahili), and the setting for the Danish writer Karen Blixen’s 'Out of Africa' – travel in Kenya evokes feelings of exploration and adventure upon the wide African savannah. What’s more, there is the Great Rift Valley with its soda lakes and flamingos, spectacular trekking on Mount Kenya and a host of other wildlife-packed game reserves, including Meru, Tsavo and Amboseli.
Tanzania is a land of extremes. Home to Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, and its deepest and largest lakes, the country has the world’s largest game reserve and one of the most spectacular natural sights in the world – the annual Great Migration.
Tanzania is the wildlife safari destination – simply put, it has it all, and you can seek out the Big Five here. With 25 percent of its land surface area enjoying protected status the country is home to some of the most famed game parks in the world, including the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Selous Game Reserve.
