Jambo Safari 12 Days


Your safari takes you to the moorlands of the Aberdare, the rich deciduous and bamboo forests surrounding snow peaked Mount Kenya and the vast plains of the Masai Mara, teeming with game. Your safari also will take you to the largest port on the coast of East Africa, Mombasa, although a bustling coastal city retains much of its 150 year old character, with its low rise structures, ornate wooden shop fronts and balconies. Arab traders, Portuguese explorers, Indian merchants and British colonists have all left their mark on the area which, mingled with the indigenous Swahili culture has resulted in a colorful pot-pourri of language, faith, architecture, food and dress. A string of superb beaches lines the coast both north and south of Mombasa. All are of white coral sand and are protected by reefs, providing safe swimming. And should you tire of the beach, Mombasa's shops and craft stalls offer a fascinating collection of goods – Makonde wood curvings; stone figurines; African drums and other musical instruments; paintings; fabrics; and kangas, the beautifully patterned, wrap around skirts.
