East Africa is a region that begins in Tanzania, extending north through Kenya and Uganda up to Ethiopia. The area includes great grasslands, scrub forest of the savannas, highlands and the magnificent Great Rift Valley. There is an incredible array of different countries, landscapes, cultures and ecosystems present. In particular, there’s something for everyone in this diversity. No matter whether it is ballooning over the Serengeti, an expedition to the Maasai Mara or a journey to see the ancient rock-cut churches of Ethiopia. The eastern region of Africa has a long history, in fact, most archaeological experts believe it is here that modern humans originated. Interesting and varied itineraries are available for our incentive groups. It would all depend on the size of the group as to the areas and the flow of the program we will recommend.
We can recommend some of these popular destinations in East Africa listed below.
Serengeti National Park
Grazing game and acacia trees dot the breathtaking open plains. It’s a great place to spot predators like lion and cheetah in action, especially during the January-March rainy season. At this time, wildebeest descend upon the southern Serengeti to give birth and the newborn calves make easy prey for hungry cats.
The ancient Ngorongoro Crater dominates this Conservation Area. Approximately 1,970 feet/ 600 meters deep, the crater is the world’s largest intact caldera and one of East Africa’s most incredible natural spectacles.
Zanzibar is renowned for its fascinating history and its incredible beaches. Stone Town is one of the island’s biggest attractions, boasting ornate houses, narrow alleyways, a Sultan’s palace, and many mosques. Zanzibar’s white-sand beaches are postcard-perfect and its reefs are ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Maasai Mara National Park
It’s possible to see the Big Five in a single day and during the July-November dry season, the plains are filled with the vast herds of the annual wildebeest migration. In particular, watching the herds crossing the Mara River in their thousands is a spectacle few will ever forget.
Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda
Draped in mist and full of lush vegetation, Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park nestles deep within the Virunga Mountains. As Africa’s oldest national park, it is one of the best places in the world to encounter the critically endangered mountain gorilla.
Located in the heart of Ethiopia’s northern highlands, Lalibela is a historic town. It is of great religious importance for the country’s Orthodox Christians. It was designed as a ‘New Jerusalem’ in the 12th century. Pilgrims had Lalibela as an alternative, when prevented, due to conflict, from traveling to the Holy Land. Today, its magnificent rock-hewn churches attract visitors from all over the world.
