Cruzeiro Safaris take on travel advisories lift TELL TRAVELERS TO TRAVEL

Nairobi, Kenya, July 30, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Tour operators and hoteliers in Kenya are finally having a breather after the travel advisories by the British government were lifted sometime in June, 2015. One can read the full statement on the FCO website for the British embassy. The coming of the President of the United States of America is another plus and boost to the tourism industry. Now travelers can flock the country Kenya with confidence.

The East African Adventure is awaiting all travel enthusiasts to enjoy last minute deals or just plan ahead for the long term safari adventure in 2015 and 2016. One thing for sure is that the annual migration of the wildebeest is still taking place regardless of the presence of any audience. Adventure travelers can take advantage of the 3 country VISA option for Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. As we write this article we received a new circular British and Irish Nationals need a VISA to enter Kenya. The single entry visa allows a re-entry to Kenya from Tanzania and Uganda. Other arrangements can be made to Ethiopia and Zambia.

With the successful safari of camel derby in 2013 where we took a group of people and they won several awards in the derby, this year 2015 we anticipate to take even a large group of people. The takes place from 14-16 August, 2015 in Maralal, Samburu County. We have more information on our website and how to bookhttp://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya/274-fansof-maralal-carmel-derby-

Starting off is Kenya with its adventurous Game reserves or National Reserves which are set up and managed by the local authority where they located. The local communities interact freely with the wildlife before such areas are declared game reserves. Unlike National Parks, the local communities are allowed to live and graze their animals in game reserves. For example, the Maasai people live and graze their animals in Maasai Mara without being restricted by the management of the park. Game reserves may also be set up and owned and managed by private individuals with special permission from the Central Government. Golf holidays with adventure are also increasingly becoming popular. Adventures and sports enthusiasts are not left behing with the amazing 20days safari in Kenya and Tanzania with highlight visits to:

  • Maasai Mara National Reserve
  • Lake Nakuru National Park  
  • Lake Naivasha National Park  
  • Hells Gate National Park – cycling, walking, oljorowa gorge, sulphuric pool
  • Mount Longonot National Park 
  • climbing the crater approx 20kms  
  • Aberdares National Park 
  • Karura falls
  • Mount Kenya National park -mount climbing
  • Sweetwaters Sanctuary or Samburu National reserve
  • Amboseli National Park  
  • Tarangire National Park  
  • Serengeti National Par
  • Ngorongoro Crater  and Park 
  • Olduvai gorge  
  • Lake Manyara National Park  
  • Nairobi  and Arusha  
  • Carnivore restaurant
  • Nairobi City tour
  • Shopping

Safaris from Mombasa city which is located along the Kenyan Coast, has numerous beach resorts and apartments that one can choose from. City tours of Mombasa and Safaris to Tsavo and Amboseli Parks and the Summer package can be arranged.

We then head to the adventure of Gorilla trekking either in Uganda or Rwanda but we emphasize on Rwanda this time. Another breed of the Golden monkeys is also within reach from the Volcanoes National Park. The Golden monkey is a local sub-species of the widespread Sykes Monkey, also known as the ‘Blue Monkey” and is endemic to the high altitude forest of the Volcanoes National Park areas. The monkeys are playful and inquisitive and often spend time leaping form bamboo branches or flicking on the forest floor. Visitors are permitted to stay for 1 hour with the Golden monkeys just as with the Mountain Gorillas. In 4 days you can spend time in Rwanda on full adventure.

As much as it’s not on the agreement for the #EACVISA, Tanzania is also worth visiting. When we talk of Tanzania what comes in mind is its fame of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti or the spice Island of Zanzibar that comes in to our minds. Even though some tourist destinations have remained unpretentious and have hardly been exposed to the outside world. Departing on Sunday they offer 12 days of the Best of Tanzania and Zanzibar.

Another adventure that one can combine with the above 2 is the visit to Victoria Falls in Zambia or famously knows as Vic Falls. Taking a 5 day trip to the Livingstone area, Botswana for a river safari get on the 4×4 trucks for a game driver in the Chobe National park, take a guided tour to Vic falls and fly over the falls with a helicopter. Later on take a sunset cruise on Zambezi River. They package it to fly from Nairobi’s capital and return there. This makes it easy for one to just book their inward and outbound flights from home to Nairobi.

Short tours or trips can be organized locally from Nairobi, Mombasa or Arusha.

This is the right season for travelers all over the world to head to Kenya.

A Sweet Spin on Moonshine for Bloomery Distillery

Charles Town, West Virgina, July 03, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — FlipKey.com, the vacation rental company of leading travel site TripAdvisor has published its list of the 50 most loved and most talked about food and drink tours in almost every state across the U.S. And in West Virginia, the winner is Bloomery Plantation Distillery.

Capitalizing on the craving for locally sustainable craft distilleries and the nostalgia for moonshine, Bloomery’s SweetShine line of naturally flavored liqueurs are handcrafted from farm-fresh roots, fruits, and nuts.

The freshness of the line’s ingredients cannot be questioned, with all agricultural ingredients grown at the distillery’s own farm, local neighboring farms or other small American farms.

To date, more than 60,000 premium drink devotees have toured the distillery to savor an artisanal cocktail – whether it’s the ‘moonshine milkshake’ innovatively called Cremma Lemma or the chilled Chocolate Raspberry (a shot in hot coffee is bound to change one’s morning routine). With more than twenty-one international awards and too many cocktail enthusiast praises to count, the company is doing its part to take the restaurant, bar and hospitality industries to tasty new levels.

The entire process of creating the SweetShine line is handcrafted – from the hand-zesting of every lemon to the hand-chopping of the ginger to the hand-making of syrups to the actual handwriting that goes on every bottle of every label. Company founder Linda Losey claims with pride, “Consumers like a little bit of the unusual and appreciate our whimsical approach, but quality and taste are paramount – this is why we grow our own Italian lemons and Hawaiian ginger as well as our own black walnuts, pumpkins, and raspberries. Losey goes on to say, “Our fans trust our brand…and are comfortable and confident that when they grab a bottle of SweetShine, they can add it to any of their current cocktails and they’ll create a fresher, higher quality, premium cocktail that was a breeze to make.”

Bloomery SweetShine is currently distributed to retailers, bars and restaurants in 42 states and is on the fast track to further expand distribution.

About Bloomery SweetShine
Since opening as a mini-distillery in the agri-tourism industry in September of 2011, Bloomery Plantation Distillery has been capitalizing on the craving for locally sustainable craft distilleries, the nostalgia for the prohibition-era and the explosion of fruit flavored liqueurs through its hand-crafted, award-winning SweetShine line. With a sweet spin on moonshine, the company makes moonshine drinkable through its award-winning liqueurs that are hand-crafted from farm-fresh fruits, roots and nuts. To date, more than 60,000 premium drink devotees have visited the distillery to enjoy a SweetShine artisanal cocktail of their own amid affable company.

The distillery boasts a wildly unique, imaginative and fiercely dedicated staff led by company founder, Linda Losey. For staffers, SweetShine represents far more than just a product line but rather is regarded as a foundational philosophy—an adventurous and even risk-taking way of doing things…a spirited and amusing outlook on life. This viewpoint guides everything the company creates, and Bloomery’s passionate one-of-a-kind team attracts customers from around the world who believe in, connect with and trust the SweetShine brand.

The distillery, located two miles east of Charles Town, West Virginia, is situated on a 12-acre parcel of land where they grow farm-fresh ingredients used in the elixirs, including ginger, raspberries and lemons, among others. Putting their unique spin on the process of making moonshine, Bloomery’s all natural SweetShine is crafted using time-honored recipes with 190 proof ‘shine, pure cane sugar and garden-grown ingredients. The entire process is hand-crafted—from the hand-zesting of every lemon, to the hand-chopping of the ginger, to the hand picking of raspberries, to the hand-making of its syrups, to the handwriting that goes on every bottle of every label. Each batch is individually proofed; the finished liqueurs range from 40° to 70°. Truly handcrafted. And it shows. Just a touch of SweetShine quickly creates a classic cocktail with a twist—goodbye to boring unadventurous drinking! Bloomery SweetShine is currently distributed to retailers, bars and restaurants in 42 states, and continues to expand distribution nationally.

Lua Hadar with Twist Swings it in French at Society Cabaret Bastille Party

San Francisco, CA, July 03, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — To celebrate French Independence Day, Lua Hadar with Twist returns for an encore performance of their popular French Music Hall show, “C’est Magnifique!” This Bastille-Day-with-a-Twist features Lua on French and English vocals, Music Director Jason Martineau on piano, Dan Feiszli on bass, Kelly Park on drums, and special guest Dave Sturdevant on guitar and harmonica. Saturday, July 11 at 8pm (seating from 7pm) at Society Cabaret at the Hotel Rex Union Square, 562 Sutter Street, San Francisco. Tickets start at $25 (NO FEES) at Ticketmaster or societycabaret.com Or call 415-857-1896. Full bar, great food. More info at www.luahadar.com.

The show presents a variety of songs from the popular traditions of Paris, including those of American songwriter Cole Porter; hence the title “C’est Magnifique!” a song from Cole Porter’s 1953 musical, Can-Can.

Dave Sturdevant’s harmonica brings a Toots Thielemans-style to the show, in addition to the gypsy sound of his swinging guitar.

French songs by Charles Trenet, Maxime LeForestier, Edith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg round out the set list, and as ever, Lua’s fun and quirky stories provide her personalized bridge to the songs, whether you speak French or not.

Hadar is no stranger to France or French music, having just returned from teaching a master class in France on American Jazz Standards.

ABOUT TWIST:
Since its inception in 2007, Hadar’s cosmopolitan jazz ensemble TWIST has developed a multi-lingual world jazz fusion that twists the styles of international standards and brings new material into the jazz idiom.

Lua has charmed audiences from New York’s Iridium Jazz Club to Bangkok’s Thailand Cultural Center to the Swan Bar in Paris, where, on a return engagement, she previewed “C’est Magnifique!” to an enthusiastic full house before bringing it to San Francisco’s Society Cabaret for its first run in November 2013. The show was reprised last year and became a Society Cabaret tradition, presented each time with a different featured instrumentalist.

Hadar has released three CDs with Music Director Jason Martineau and Twist. The most recent, “Like A Bridge,” was recorded in 2012 as the centerpiece of her Bridges Project. The “Like A Bridge” DVD was nominated for an Independent Music Award and was released at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in Oakland in September of 2013 after its premiere at San Francisco’s Historic Balboa Theater.

“…such a lovely variety of songs from cabaret traditions of Paris (and beyond), that we might as well have been in a brick-walled basement room in the Quartier Latin.” – Talkin’ Broadway

“First call band of international talent and an innate gift of swing.” – Critical Jazz
