Kenya is one of the most developed countries in Africa, but please, don’t get the wrong impression.
It is still a very real Africa, very wild and full of real African beauty!
It is actually two worlds in one:
Nairobi is a very developed almost European city with sky buildings, modern hotels and hospitals, internet cafés, shopping centers, cinemas and even with an ice skating ground!
Twenty kilometers from there you deep to a completely different world of small mud buildings hidden in the bushes, donkeys, cows and endless wild areas with dark nights, as it is no electricity.
Kenya is a country full of small hidden and very traditional tribes, where they don’t even know how to count their age. Time doesn’t meter. And wildlife is everywhere, living in a harmony with local people, as most of the National Parks are not fenced.
Such a mixture makes Kenya a perfect place to travel. You can experience Kenya as a pure wild Africa, but still you know that far there in Nairobi there are modern hospitals and the helicopter can rich you in the bush at any time.
So feel safe, our team will guide you safely. And feel wild and natural and never hurry in Africa.
Relax your mind and enjoy the beauty of this country!
“POLE POLE” and “HAKUNA MATATA” are the worlds in Kenyan language which you will hear the most often. They mean “Slowly, slowly” and “No problem”.

Tanzania is one of the unique destinations on the African continent that has yet to be discovered by many. It is a land of many wonders hubbing an un-paralleled diversity of fauna and flora. Kilimanjaro, the highest permanently snow-capped free standing mountain in Africa, the exotic Islands of Zanzibar, the finest game sanctuaries of Serengeti, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, Ruaha, Selous and the Marine Park of Mafia Island are only but a few of the living examples. The scenery, topography and very friendly people harbour the growth of excellent cultural tourism beach holidays, game hunting, historical and archaeological ventures – and certainly the best wildlife photographic safaris on the continent.

In prehistoric times as much as one third of Rwanda was covered with mountain rainforest. Today the only large tract of forest left in Rwanda is Nyungwe in the southwestern part of the country; it covers almost 1000 square kilometers. Some areas of forest are also found in the Volcanoes National Park in the northeast, but most of the natural vegetation here are bamboo forest and open moorland.
The highlands in large parts of the country are now dominated by the terraced agriculture that gives the Rwandan countryside its beautiful and pleasant character. The eastern part of Rwanda has entirely different vegetation, the typical African bush, a mix of savannah and grassland dominated by acacia trees as well as large tracts of marshlands and swamps.
