Egypt is known as the cradle of history and culture. The highlights include the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx, the Valley of the Kings and Queens, ancient temples and museums. The Nile, the longest river in the world, flows over 4,000 miles from its source in the mountains of east and central Africa to the Mediterranean Sea. A cruise on the Nile combined with the game viewing of East Africa offers an educational and exciting vacation.

Kenya is probably the best known and most affordable African safari destination. The National Parks and Reserves occupy 7% of Kenya's land mass with new protected areas being set aside very year. The Masai Mara, an extension of the Serengeti plains, is Kenya's premier wildlife reserve. Kenya is an excellent choice for your first safari and for those who prefer the comfort and amenities of lodges (although camping is also available). For those whose interests include relaxing on a beach and watersports the Kenya coast and the Seychelle islands are easily accessible extensions. We also organize Weddings in Kenya at the legendary Mt. Kenya Safari Club.

Tanzania is for those looking for an excellent wildlife experience and incredible scenery. Tanzania is home to such natural wonders as Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, Lake Tanganika, Africa's deepest and longest fresh water lake and the Ngoron-goro Crater, the largest caldera in the world. The Serengeti ecosystem is home to the largest concentrations of wildlife on Earth. Also available are walking safaris and chimpanzee viewing. Tanzania may be easily combined with Kenya.

Within its borders are Lake Kariba, Matusadona National Park, Mana Pools, Chizarira National Park, Hwange National Park and the legendary Victoria Falls. The wonderful and diverse range of safari opportunities include viewing game in open land rovers, powerboat, canoe, kayak, houseboat or on foot.

Botswana is a landlocked country about the size of France offering such natural wonders as the Okavango Delta which fans out across the northwest corner and creates a paradise of islands and lagoons teeming with birds and wildlife. In the northeast the famous Chobe National Park supports great concentration of elephant and buffalo, and there is Savuti known for its population of lion. With just one million inhabitants Botswana is one of the least populated and most politically stable and affluent nations on the continent.
