KENYA CULTURAL SAFARIS

Cultural Safaris Kenya Cultural Tours
Cultural Safaris & Wildlife Safaris
 
10 Days

This safari combines two of the most interesting and contrasting Game Parks in Kenya. It provides an even balance between traveling by car and some real out door walking in the African bush. From the Northern frontier (Samburu), which is famous, for it's rare species such as the Reticulated Giraffes, Gravy's Zebra, the long necked Gerenuk and Lance Oryx. You drive into the Great Rift Valley where you will experience the thrill at a real foot safari. You have the opportunity to hike up the Vulture -inhabited cliffs of Hell's Gate National Park. The last four days are spent walking and game viewing through a wild life kingdom unsurpassed anywhere else in Africa. We mingle with the Nomads and wander among huge herds of plain game - a thrilling experience especially during the period of the wildebeest migration up from the Serengeti between July and October. We return to Nairobi for your final departure or Coastal extension.

Mt.Kenya

Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain at 5,199m (17,058 feet) and the highest of all Kenya Mountains. Mount Kenya is roughly circular, about 60km across at the 200mm contour, where the steep font hills rise out of the gentler slopes of the centered highlands. At the centre of the massif, the main peaks rise sharply from around 4,500m to the main summit of Batian 5,199m, Nelion 5,188m and point Lenana 4,985m. Other major summits on the mountain include Point Piggott 4,957m, Point Dutton 4,885 and Point John 4,883m. Of the three main peaks (Batian, Lenana and Nelion), only point Lenana can be reached by trekkers and the other two being only for technical climbers.

Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro stands on featureless part of the East African plateau, on the Tanzanian side of the Kenya border near Moshi, side by side with the smaller Mount Meru. These mountains are extinct volcanoes, with Kilimanjaro actually being the agglomeration of three distinct volcanoes, Kibo (5896m/ 19,340 ft), Mwenzi (5,149 / 16,896 ft) and Shira (3,962m / 13,000 ft). whose violent creation is geologically associated with the creation of the Great Rift Valley, 100km to the West.

Mount Meru is Mount Kilimanjaro's little sister, standing at 4,566m compared to 5,895m, but is still an impressive freestanding volcano, which makes a superb four day climb to the top. It last erupted in 1910 therefore can be classified as an active volcano. The first Mount Meru ascent was made by Dr. Fritz Jaeger, 1904. The town of Arusha lies at the base of Mount Meru Trekking, loads of trek companies do this trek. Wild animals are frequently found on this mountain therefore an armed ranger usually accompanies the trekkers.
