Serengeti Trail, Kenya & Tanzania safari
Description of Serengeti Trail, Kenya & Tanzania safari
This week-long Serengeti, Tanzania and Kenya safari tour places travellers in the heart of East Africa where savannah plains stretch as far as the eye can see and wildlife is left free to roam in their natural environment.

Dik-diks, giraffes, wildebeest, lions and elephants can all be found if you know where to look and as youíll be enjoying several guided game drives youíll have every chance of encountering any number of African animals as well as meeting the local communities living, trading and working in the cradle of civilisation.
Experience the very best of the Serengeti, Tanzania and Kenya on a safari tour that places you amongst the markets, plantations and wildlife hot spots of East Africa to ensure your encounter is as spiritual and cultural as naturally exciting.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
The lions and leopards in the Serengeti and watching eagles fishing over Lake Victoria.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Expect long drives on bumpy and dusty roads. Itís worth it to get to the Serengeti, but painful at the time. The tour may have over 20 people which makes taking photos on game drives difficult when youíre on the tour operator's truck. Remember you are joining an existing trip so those already on the tour may have formed a clique so may not be welcoming of new travellers.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
To some extent. We were given cotton shopping bags and provided with drinking water so we could reduce single use plastic bottles.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
OK. Great wildlife, if you go at the right time of year.
PlanetAs a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a Ďtake in, take back outí waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.
PeopleWe believe strongly in low impact tourism and so during this trip we use existing locally owned facilities and camp ground such as the one used in Kisi on the first night. By using locally owned and run facilities we are helping the local communities that we visit.
You will have an opportunity to shop for local sculptures and textiles at a bustling Musoma market during this trip, there is an optional boat ride on Lake Victoria and a trip to the small island where sardine farming is the main industry. The time we spend here will again benefit the local community.
