Kenya & Tanzania

Why visit Kenya & Tanzania ??

Kenya and Tanzania

The most common phrases in conversations with people who have experienced Africa only in books were “The cradle of mankind”, “Mysterious, dark and inviting”, “warm, friendly people”, “lovely music”, “But very difficult to reach”, “Don’t know how to get there”, “The curse of choice – there’s so much to do”…

And the best phrase from one who has been there “Maaan… What a place! The natural beauty, the animals, the drives, the people, the colours, the dangers… And best of all being one with all of these… The feeling of being totally connected to life as nature designed it…”

The parks, reserves and private conservancies of Kenya are home to some of the highest and most diverse populations of wildlife on the planet

It is the place witness the Great Wildebeest Migration or one can same the greatest reality show of life on earth.  A place where “survival of the fittest” is a norm.

So we got intrigued… We decided to pack our bags and get there… And we realised that all of these are true… And of course, so much more…

While everyone talks about the wildlife there, it is in fact a land of diverse experiences. The volcanic landscapes, wide open savannah plains, mountain peaks, winding rivers, deep Blue Ocean, dense forests, white sand beaches, vast deserts and more . And how can we not talk about the experience of living in the Jungle!

And the lovely people who work closely with the government to maintain sustainability and eco-friendly tourism.

No need to plan for a particular month.  Weather is just great and the temperature is pretty constant all year-round.  However, if great Migration is the agenda, then July , August, September is the right time.

Best places to visit in Kenya & Tanzania

Masai Mara National Reserve: An an area of preserved savannah wilderness, along the Tanzanian border, Masai Mara boasts of lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, and hippos. This is also the place to witness the Wildebeest migration. The area nearby is dotted with villages (enkangs) of Maasai people.

Amboseli National Park: Surrounded by Mount Kilimanjaro,  the Amboseli National Park is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of elephants up close. The name “Amboseli” comes from a Maasai word meaning “salty dust”, and it.

Lake Nakuru: Home to hundreds of Flamingos, this lake is flanked by mountains, forests, and waterfalls, the park is home to black rhinos and white rhinos, lions, leopards, hippos and endangered Rothschild’s giraffes.

Lake Naivisha: It is a freshwater lake in Kenya, outside the town of Naivasha and is the highest lake in the Rift Valley.

Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest intact crater and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Grassland blends into swamps, lakes, rivers, woodland, and mountains on its floor. The Big Five call this volcanic crater home, and it is one of the last wild refuges for the black rhino.

Mount Kilimanjaro with its three volcanic cones – Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira – is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. The mountain is part of the Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination.

Zanzibar is an archipelago of Indian Ocean islands, awash with idyllic beach experiences and more.  It is a great place to relax after an action-packed safari or climbing Kilimanjaro. With its spice plantations and Sultans’ palaces, the island is a must-see when in Tanzania.

What our Kenya & Tanzania Travellers Say

Nidhi and SandyBeyonder Traveller - Africa - Kenya

We travelled to Kenya with Beyonder who looked into every single detail and curated the entire trip and I’d recommend them to everyone. We felt safe and comfortable throughout the trip and did not have to lift a finger. They also personalize your trip according to what you need. Highly recommend Beyonder.

Mandar SalunkheBeyonder Traveller - Africa - Kenya & Tanzania

You handheld us right from the initial itinerary planning and air ticket bookings. Your expert advice was surely valued and this made sure that our trip started in the right way. The accommodations as well as the tour partner at Kenya were great and quite up to our expectations.

This was probably one of the best tours we had done together as a family. Africa’s wilderness makes you realize why animals should be free rather than in a zoo. The energy and vitality shown by the free animals is seldom seen by zoo animals, and hence makes this an unforgettable experience. This is the Lion King and National Geographic documentaries all rolled in one. The only thing missing is David Attenborough explaining about the animal albeit the tour guide arranged by you did quite a good job with his Attenborough style explanations on the numerous animals that we saw.

Africa’s wilderness should be a must visit place in everyone’s tourism bucket list, and Beyonder is doing a damn good job in making it happen.
