Get a Kenyan Visa for a Safari in Masai Mara

April 22nd, 2011
If you're in Kenya looking for wildlife, you have a lot of national parks and reserves to choose from.  However, Masai Mara National Park is quite possibly the best place to go. The reserve is huge in and of itself, with 938 square miles of protected area. It's also contiguous with the Serengeti Reserve in Tanzania, giving the animals even more space and allowing for a diverse population of wildlife. The "Big Five "-- lions, leopards, buffaloes, rhinos and elephants -- get top billing, but you can also see a staggering number of smaller but equally interesting creatures, including wildebeest, baboons, giraffe, zebra, hyena and many different types of antelopes.  Plus, there are multitudes of birds including ostriches, cranes and hornbills. The park is well-developed for tourism, with


Get a Kenyan Visa to Visit Meru National Park

March 12th, 2011
Decades ago, Meru National Park in Kenya was a virtual wasteland, haunted by poachers who decimated the wildlife population. However, after a 5 year restoration period that began in 2000, the poachers are out and the animals have returned. If you're lucky, you could see lions, leopards, cheetahs, hippos, antelopes and even rhinos. This park is also the final resting place of Elsa the Lioness, made famous in the book and movie Born Free. Meru is the park where she was eventually released. Although Elsa went on to start a family of her own in the park, she later became ill and died. Her cubs, too young to fend for themselves successfully, began preying on local livestock and had to be moved to a different park for their own protection. For a long time, Meru simply wasn't worth visiting, b


Get a Kenyan Visa to Visit Lake Turkana

February 12th, 2011
This week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site is the largest permanent desert lake in the world. Lake Turkana is located in Kenya along the border with Ethiopia. Sometimes called the Jade Sea, this salt lake surrounds an active volcano on Central Island. Lake Turkana is a salt lake, but it's not nearly as salty as the Dead Sea, and animals like fish, crocodiles and birds thrive there. In addition to the crocs, large numbers of scorpions and poisonous snakes make it a dangerous place for tourists to travel unguided. That's not to say that you shouldn't go, only that you this park is best visited as part of an organized tour with a reputable tour group. The Lake Turkana World Heritage Site consists of 3 protected national parks: Sibiloi National Park, Central Island National Park and S


Travel Visas for the Tour d’Afrique

February 9th, 2011
The Tour de France? That's nothing! Try riding across the entire African continent on a bicycle! Since 2003, a hardy bunch of cyclists has been doing just that, as part of the Tour d'Afrique. The Tour d'Afrique crosses the entire African continent, from Egypt to South Africa, approximately 7,500 miles. While some participants are there to race, many others are just there for the experience and travel at their own pace, so people of all ages are welcome as long as you are in good shape and like to ride. The Tour d'Afrique takes a good four months to complete, and like most epic-level travel experiences, it's not cheap. The full tour will set you back €8,900, not including your bike, supplies for your bike, food on rest days, flights or visas. Fortunately, you can also sign on to just


Kenyan Visa Requirements for an African Safari

October 7th, 2010
If you've always dreamed of visiting Africa, Frommer's just posted a great travel deal on a Kenyan safari. The trip, which is hosted by 2Afrika, Inc. and called "Make Tracks with Sarova in Kenya," starts out at a surprisingly affordable price of $1,599.00, though when you factor in flight and other costs, you'll likely pay at least twice that amount. However, you'll get a 6-day trip that includes time in Nairobi, Shaba National Reserve, Lake Nakuru National Park and the famous Masai Mara National Reserve. Per Frommer's, the itinerary will give you a plethora of opportunities to spot wildlife: "Along the way, you'll see the likes of giraffe, herds of elephants, prides of lions, cheetah, zebra, buffalo, hyena, fox, mongoose -- the list is seemingly endless. Bird lovers will also have ple
