Here are 5 Reasons to go on Safari in East Africa during the Shoulder & Low Seasons

  1. Save Money East Africa is not the cheapest of African regions to visit. As the traditional heartland of African wildlife safaris, the prices in East Africa are higher than in most Southern African countries. These higher costs can put budget conscious travelers off, but the good news is that prices drop during the off-peak times of the year, bringing these classical safari destinations within reach. One of the reasons prices fall is because mainstream travel advice is to avoid the rainy seasons and that winter game viewing is best. Also, most travelers tend to travel during the northern hemisphere summer and over Christmas and New Years.
  2. You can save between 20 and 40% on safaris outside of the high and peak season.
  3. It’s not just the safari packages that are cheaper in low season, the accommodation rates drop saving you money on pre and post tour accommodation. Activities are also offered at reduced prices, as are day trips.
  4. If you’re travelling independently in Kenya during low season you also have more leverage for bargaining and negotiating better deals too.
  5. Flights are also cheaper, due to lower demand! All-in-all it can make an otherwise too expensive Nairobi safari affordable. We are able to enjoy the amazing moorlands, the beautiful snowcaps, mysterious oceans and seas and incredible wildlife. However, it is our responsibility to ensure that whilst we enjoy the marvels of this world we should be conscious of maintaining the conservation of these wonders.

The shoulder seasons which fall between the low and peak periods offer similar advantages to the low seasons. Falling at the start and end of the rains, the shoulder seasons are often the best time to go on safari travel in Kenyas Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and in terms of balancing cost, game viewing, visitor numbers and weather. The shoulder season between the long and short rains – from January to March, is actually considered by some safari veterans to be the best time to go game viewing in Kenya and Tanzania.

Travel Destination for 2016 is Kenya -Get the thrill and plan Early

Nairobi, Kenya, November 09, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Destination Kenya

Are there any destinations in the world which can evoke such powerful imagery as Kenya, one of East Africa’s premier destinations? Indeed, the acacia-dotted savannahs of Kenya http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya re inhabited by classic African animals, from towering elephants and prancing gazelles to prides of lions and stalking leopards. The country also plays host to the annual migration, the largest single movement of heard animals on the planet. However, what makes Kenya truly stand out as a travel destination is the vast palette of landscapes that comprise this visually stunning country. While the flaunted image of the savannah of Maasai Mara perhaps the single key selling point for Kenya’s tourist industry, intrepid http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=226/ travelers can also explore the barren expanses of the Rift valley, the glacial ridges of Mt. Kenya http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=214/ and the beaches of the Swahili coast. This rich diversity of quintessential Africanhttp://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/safari-twiga environments present opportunity for hiking, trekking, diving sailing and so much more But to simply focus on Kenya’s wildlife and nature is to ignore the people that make this country so dynamic. Kenya is a thriving multicultural country with a wide cross-section of everything that is classic and contemporary Africa. Everyday life brings together traditional tribes and urban families, ancient customs and modern sensibilities. And, while much of the East Africa has suffered from bitter feud between divided ethnic groups, Kenya has usually been regarded as an island of stability in a trouble region. Kenya may be a somewhat more intimidating destination that it once was, but remains one of the undisputed highlights of Africa. Check your inhibition, ignore the hype, bring your sense of adventure and get ready for some truly inspiring and life-changing travel.

Planning a trip to Kenya is a pleasure in itself: the country is so versatile that it’s virtually a blank canvas, catering equally for the thrill-seekers and sun-seekers, budget backpackers and high-end rollers, those who like it tough and those who just want to get going. Whatever you do here, you’ll discover that it’s very straightforward to sort yourself out of the ground and advance plans are very necessary.

When to go to Kenya: The main tourist season is January, February and March, when the weather is hottest and driest. At this time, the animals in the wildlife parks tend to congregate more around the watercourses, making them easy to spot. However, the parks can get crowded and rates for accommodation soar –also make sure you avoid Christmas and Easter unless you want to pay much higher prices. From June to October, the annual wildebeest migration takes place, with thousands of animals streaming into the Maasai Mara National reserve from Serengeti. During the long rains (the low season April to May) things are much quieter.

Itineraries and Classic Routes
Classic routes put you face to face with the continent’s most charismatic creatures. Safari njema – have a good trip!
Departing from Nairobi, Kenyas capital city one can enjoy the Nairobi city tours at any point where low or high season. Our first port of call is Maasai Mara National Reserve http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/maasai-mara. Between July and October, the Maasai Mara plays host to the annual wildebeest migration, which offers a definitive slice of safari Africa. Even if you can’t time your visit to coincide with this epic event, the Mara is still worth visiting as the famous national park in Kenya. The northern trails leads to Samburu National Reserve http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya/143-3-dayssamburu-by-road-lodges, a dusty, red, desert habitat that shelters’ species of animals not found elsewhere in Kenya. The safari trail continues down to Amboseli National Park http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya/142-3-days-amboselinational-park-by-road, which is regarded as one of the best places in Africa to get up close and personal with the heads of grazing elephants.

In search of the big five
The ultimate goal of any safari-gore is to spot the Big Five, namely lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant. While you’re going to have to put in a lot of hours to spot them all-particularly the elusive leopard – this itinerary will have you ticking them off the list in no time. Start your search at Lake Nakuru National park, an alkaline lake in the Rift Valley, which is home to many thousands of pink flamingos and pelicans. This vitally important national park also protects the country’s largest population of endangered black rhinos, as well as large herds of buffalo. From lake Nakuru, your next stop is the obligatory Maasai Mara National Reservehttp://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/maasai-mara-by-air-at-kichwa-tembo-tented-campwhich is veritable lion country, With a little luck you can spot leopards lounging in trees, and cheetahs prowling around the savannahs, from Maasai Mara head south to Naivasha and visit the Hells gate National park swim in the hot water sulfuric swimming pool belonging to the geothermal energy plant. Then head south to the Amboseli national park for a wildlife drive through Kilimanjaro court. Against a back drop of Africa’s tallest peak, you will see dozens of elephants. From Amboseli it’s straight forward drive to the Tsavo West National Park and Tsavo East National Park. Kenya’s largest wildlife parks. As they are relatively undeveloped. Tsavo East and West are where you can truly have a wildlife experience. From here you can head down to the highway to ancient Swahili port of Mombasa http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/about-mombasa-safaris-, where you can either fly straight home or start a whole new journey exploring the Kenyan coast. Indeed, its’ just a short trip south west to the Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary a small but important reserve that protects elephants migratory routes, and on to the densely forested Shimba Hills National reserve http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/about-mombasa-safaris-/230-mombasa-half-day-shiimba-hills home to the rare antelope.

Sun, Surf and Swahili
Whether you’re interest in exploring the remaining vestiges of Swahili culture, or simply kicking it on the beach for days on end, don’t miss the chance to explore Kenya’s sun-drenched coast. From the coastal getaway of Mombasa City, the first stop head south is Tiwi beach, a tranquil white-sand paradise that is popular with independents travelers. Just down the road, you can head on to the package holiday destination of Diani beach for a taste of the more full-on rest experience. Near the Tanzania Border are the Funzi and Wasini islands provide a dose of real, unspoilt coastal life and also afford easy access to the excellent Kisite Marine National Park. Here you can spot the Dolphins http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/about-mombasa-safaris-/234-mombasa-one-day-wasini-dolphin-tracking-adventure-tourcrashing each other it’s a wonderful complement to Kenya’s terrestrial wildlife destinations.

Back to the coastal trail make a quick stop in the charming town of Kilifi before pressing on to the Arabuko Sokoke Forest Reserve on the largest remaining tracts of indigenous coastal forest in East Africa. Further north are the Gede ruins and ancient Swahili City that dates back to the 13th century. Another historic town along the Swahili coast is Malindi, a 14th century trading post that is now one of the country’s leading beach destinations for Italian holiday makers. Your itinerary can end its peaks at the wonderful Lamu archipelago a veritable tropical paradise and Swahili heritage gem. One can take up the Summer Package staying in Mombasa and travelling to the Tsavo Park and back.

Roads Less Travelled: Desert Frontiers
This unbeaten trail winds through the harsh and barren landscapes around Lake Turkana, which dominates the northwest corner of the country. The Eastern getaway to this region is the small town of Isiolo, Just north of Mt Kenya. There are several good national parks and wildlife reserve in this area. One can plough through straight to the desert route and head up the rough road to Marsabit the dusty tribal centre of this remote area which boasts a fine national park. Assuming you are not tempted to hope over the border to Ethiopia at Moyale, a real wild frontier, take the western loop to Turkana via North Horr heading for the tiny lake side settlement of Loiyangalani a base for trips into even more remote parts of the country. From here the trail leads through again passing all kinds of scenic zones and the stopover towns of South Horr and Baragoi. It’s worth stopping for a couple of days in Maralal to replenish supplies and sample the joys of camel-trekking. Your could end your trip here but for the full effect, head up to the other side of Turkana, passing though the lush western area around marich to reach sweltering Lodwar and the lovely lake shore at Eliye Springs http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya/260-952-for-3-days-package-to-lake-turkana.

When is the best time to spot animals?
When you visit Kenya’s parks and reserves, you’ll be spending a lot of time craning your neck and keeping watchful eyes out for animals and birds. There are a few telltale signs to note, as we as a few things you can do to maximize your chances of spotting the Big Five. Most are just common sense.

The best time to view wildlife to between 6.30am and 9.30am and from 3.30am to 6.30 pm. Cruzeiro Safaris makes sure they you during these timings. Wildlife drives in the mid of the day are unlikely to turn up much, (although there are popular parks such as Amboseli and Maasai Mara), animals are actually changing their normal hunting habits to avoid the tourist. When the tourists head back to the lodges for lunch, the carnivores go out hunting – in peace. In wooded country, agitated and noisy monkeys or baboons are often a sign that there’s a big cat (probably a leopard) around. Vultures circling are not necessarily an indication of a kill below. But if they are gathering in trees and seem to be watching something, you can reasonably assume they are waiting their turn for a go at a carcass.

One final note – taking longer safari is great, but endless long days peering out of a sunroof, on bumpy roads, in the heat, eating the same food stuck with the same people can take its toll quicker than you might think. Any animal you see on the first day will be exciting, though sooner or later most travelers will experience safari fatigue, that jaded feeling of ‘not another zebra, I wanna see a freaking leopard’. If this happens a few cultural activities and afternoon’s relaxations or even just a quick swim can do wonders for keeping things fresh. Or just take an air package especially for single travelers.

Nairobi and around highlights:
Spotting wildlife in the most incongruous of surroundings at the Nairobi National Park, Watch the gleeful group of baby elephants http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/nairobi-city-tours-/175-daphne-sheldricks-orphanage being bottle-fed at the David Sheldrick Wildlife trust, Tangling tongues with the rubber-necked ungulate at Giraffe centre, Broadening your appreciation of all things cultural and environmental at the National Museum, Surveying the Landscape from the grand heights of the Kenyatta Conference centre, Making the most essential foodie pilgrimage to the Carnivore and dancing it off at the Simba salon.

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.

Tenerife Holidays on the Increase with Tenerifeholidays.co.uk Website Launch

Business in the UK has seen a decline recently with financial problems effecting most markets. The travel market has not faired particularly well and tourist numbers have been dropping year on year.

Not wishing to lose too many customers, travel agents have reduced prices and added better deals than we have seen previously. Today’s customers love a good deal, but they also like to find information quickly and without too much searching. Comparison websites are great for bringing the latest deals from many travel agents in one quick search.

New travel firms are seizing the opportunity to help customers get the best deals in these difficult times and one such firm has focused their efforts on one of Europe’s top holiday destinations – Tenerife holidays.

Tenerifeholidays.co.uk is the latest travel portal to offer a dedicated service where customers can compare prices on package holidays, flights and accommodation in Tenerife to ensure they find the lowest travel prices available.

Developed with one goal in mind – to help people save money when they book a holiday in Tenerife. The site is full of guides and information to help people select a holiday resort and has offers on over 400 Tenerife hotels. The destination guides are full of info to help you make the most of eating out, night life and things to do in your chosen holiday resort.

Russell Beech, spokesperson for Tenerifeholidays.co.uk said “ Kefalonia.co.uk, our Greek island portal and first travel website was very well received and we hope that people will find Tenerifeholidays.co.uk as useful. It was a hard slog to get it to this stage but we are thrilled with the final product and hope customers will benefit from the massive savings we can offer.”
