Description of Kenya & Tanzania safari holidays

This two week small group safari holiday in Kenya & Tanzania takes travellers into the national parks and wildlife-filled plains of southeast Africa where luxury tented camps and traditional lodges set the scene for some unforgettable days and nights surrounded by nature.

From the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River in Samburu National Reserve to the big cats, elephants and buffalos of the Maasai Mara, this safari holiday places wildlife as the focus of each and every day with game drives and guided bird watching adding to some exceptional African backdrops.

Crossing between Kenya & Tanzania allows travellers the chance to compare and contrast both countries with optional balloon rides and guided walks enabling a small group tour that’s as unique as the wildlife to be found making the most of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.

Travelling from north to south, overland and by air, this two week itinerary is both efficient and exciting with Lake Victoria, straddling both Kenya and Tanzania, and the incredible Tarangire National Park just a couple of highlights of what is all set to be an absolute classic safari holiday.

Responsible tourism: Kenya & Tanzania safari holidays

Environment

All our tents in Kenya are thatched using sustainably harvested local grass and using traditional methods and local workers.

One camp runs its own tree-nursery, supplying over 30,000 seedlings to the local community. They work with local schools and other bodies to encourage tree-planting within the area, they also arrange tree-planting activities amongst their own staff and guests.

In terms of its own ecological ‘foot' print, the camp abides by a code of responsible practice in relation to: energy conservation (inverter systems have recently been installed so as to reduce the camp's use of diesel-fuelled generators), waste recycling (glass, plastics, ‘wet waste' and the distribution of food-waste to local pig-farmers), sewage disposal, air emissions, non-CFC use, pesticide-use, noise reduction and visual pollution. Wherever possible, local produce is featured on the menus.

In Tanzania one of our camps works in cooperation with SENAPA (Serengeti National Parks Authority) regarding a re-afforestation tree-planting programme.

They also work in cooperation with SENAPA in maintaining and up-grading the roads in the park so as to keep the erosive practice of ‘off-road' driving to a minimum.

Community

The Kenyan camp offers subsidized medical care to the local community - particularly in relation to maternal care and child-immunization; also in relation to HIV/AIDS sensitization.

They operate an out-reach programme to the orphanages of the area which allows for visits from our staff, the provision of funds, the hosting of seasonal events and the provision of clothing and foodstuffs.

The camp works closely with the local Ereri Multi-Cultural Community Manyatta, in the promotion of cultural dance, music, traditional practices and in the promotion of local handicrafts.

They create both temporary and permanent jobs for the local community. They also offer training and work-exposure programmes for school leavers.

They actively encourage interface between our guests and the local villages - hosting tours and promoting the sale of handicraft items.
They showcase cultural dance, costume, singing and cultural craft as part of our corporate undertaking to support and sustain the cultural heritage of our nation.

They work with a number of local schools, both by providing educational materials and by hosting environmental training sessions for the pupils.

In order to promote the overall health of their workforce, the accommodation proivder has also established the Employee Wellness Programme, which aims to address the holistic health needs of not only their staff, but also of the communities that surround their camps and lodges. In essence, the programme is devoted to reducing the incidence of accident and illness in the workplace, promoting healthy lifestyles, maximizing potential and promoting optimum quality of life.
