East Africa has grown in popularity with tourists, particularly those who are interested in wildlife or beautiful beaches. Travelers to the region are rewarded with spectacular scenery, vibrant culture and welcoming people. Trust us at Orit Travels to make your holidays memorable,, by taking you to these great destinations. We will take you on SAFARIS in some of Africa’s famous parks, the Masai Mara and Serengeti. East Africa has some of the continent’s best treks-the most popular is Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro. Lamu and Zanzibar are historically fascinating, with breath-taking beaches . For culture, you can’t beat Ethiopia’s Omo River Region or the rock churches of Lalibela. You can also track gorillas for a truly unique adventure.
The Zanzibar’s coastline offers some of the best beaches in the world; on the east coast, waves break over coral reefs and sand bars offshore, and low tide reveals small pools of starfish, small minnows, and anemones. Up north, ocean swimming is much less susceptible to the tides, and smooth beaches and white sand make for astounding days in the sun.
If you want to see the “big five’ in one morning, Masai Mara in Kenya is the place to be. During the dry season from July to October the wildlife spectacle is unparalleled. Nowhere else can you watch the annual migration of over a million wildebeest from a hot-air balloon. The ‘Mara’ is as close to “Out of Africa” as you can get.
The Wildebeest Migration is a dramatic story. It takes place within Kenya and Tanzania and is the greatest wildlife show on earth. Between the open plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, thousands of wildebeest and zebras migrate to greener pastures as the seasons change and the circle of life and death continues. Predators follow the Wildebeest Migration closely, waiting for an opportunity to strike weak prey as they make their way into different territories.
Wouldn’t it be a good idea taking a trip to Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa? This volcanic massif stands in splendid isolation above the surrounding plains, with its snowy peak looming over the savannah. The mountain is encircled by mountain forest. Numerous mammals, many of them endangered species, live in the park.
