Summer Vacation in Masai Mara, Kenya

Masai Mara National Reserve

This summer travel is trashed due to the pandemic, but be inspired and prepare yourself for a future trip to Kenya.

Our journey starts upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. We are taken to the hotel where we spend our first night in Nairobi the capital city of Kenya. Be sure that you have received a Kenya tourist visa. The city is crowded during the day and noisy especially from the traffic. But the uptown of Nairobi is a bit calm and the perfect place for your rest.

Early the next morning we start our safari to Masai Mara national park. Kabiro is our driver and guide in the next 3 days we will be in Masai Mara. Our drive takes us to the south along the floor of the Great Rift Valley with wonderful scenery and a perfect place to take lots of pictures. We take a break at Narok Town for our lunch and then climb the western wall entering Hemmingway’s Country of the “Serengeti Plains”. We arrive in Masai mara late afternoon in Masai mara with a game drive along the way before arriving at the campsite where we spend the night. The campsite is so amazing since we are sleeping in self-contained tents with electricity and shower inside, who could imagine that in a bush unless it was a lodge. Kudus to the Olympia Travel agency.

We later join other travelers for a campfire and some entertainment by the Maasai villagers, ooh what a wonderful way to retire for bed. But sure you would like to share that wonderful photos you have taken during the day with your loved ones at home. For this you would need a pocket wifi which ensures your Internet connection in this areas of the world.

Early the next morning after superb heavy breakfast we leave for a morning game drive in the park. Our guide makes a joke that we are going hunting but we should not use guns but our cameras. What I loved during the game drive was the cooperation between all the drivers who were in the park, the way they could communicate with each other on the radio on the exact spot where the animals were and where there was a hunt. It was so good, because this way we were able to see many animals and I guess it was also our lucky day because we saw a cheetah on the hunt. It killed an antelope and unfortunately a crowd of hyenas came and chased the cheetah away and enjoyed the meal. how unfortunate, but I guess is the way to survive. Our driver told us that it was our lucky day to witness the hunt, we took lots and lots of photos.

After our full day game drive, our driver takes us to the Masai village where we make a stop and learn on their culture , ways of living and the food they eat. Their houses which are commonly known as the manyattas are pretty small but the Masai are proud of there ways of living. We had a chance to get some beautiful Masai souvenirs, what a day.

We headed back to the campsite for some freshening up and later had a wonderful African dinner which was prepared on a special request by our host. It was a meal of Ugali and fried goat meat. We later join the campfire and interact with others then retire for bed.

On the third day our driver picks us up for a morning game drive after breakfast which lasted up to 11.00 o’clock in the morning. I am sorry to say this, but the trip ends here. We later arrive back in Nairobi in the late afternoon for lunch. Lunch in Nairobi restaurants is fairer in price compared to eating in the hotel. We are later joined by our host Nancy and she gives us this wonderful surprise of taking us to carnivore restaurant to wind up our trip with dinner there. Wow, the dinner was great, they have a different range of bush meat, and choma was perfect. After this wonderful dinner, we left for the airport. Asante sana Kenya and I will surely come back for more days.

Travel Bucket List for after COVID-19

Travel Bucket List
After Covid-19 Bucket List!

Look, sooner rather than later this virus evaporates and all of us after sitting at home for so long will be looking for places to travel to. We have compiled a list of destinations that may be of interest. With our low cost bookings and visa services, like Schengen visa and New Zealand visa you will get the best packages with less efforts.

So, here is the list:

Epidaurus, Greece

Ten years prior we were at Epidaurus, and each alternated to slip to the ensemble and read from Sophocles or Euripides – among the most shrewd scholars ever. It’s been a fierce 10 years for Greece and for us. At the point when the virus pandemic has settled, it is acceptable to return to and help ourselves to remember a portion of the unceasing insight and delights.

Christchurch, New Zealand

In 2013 I visited Christchurch, a city gradually rising up out of the emergency of the 2011 seismic tremors. Things seemed typical until you saw the breaks, chipper edges and skewed lintels. The shower paint from the salvage groups was as yet noticeable on shops; the vacant white seats, one for each life lost, stood thoughtfully in the middle, and the excellent house of God was fenced off in decay. Be that as it may, the energetic Re:start shopping center and its outside the box shops, chilled buskers, Lego-decorated espresso lodges and rainbow window boxes were the primary indications of the strength of this bohemian city. In a period where we have to concentrate on recuperation and a more promising time to come, I anticipate seeing what Christchurch becomes. Note that from 2019 Canadians need electronic visa to travel to New Zealand. But do not worry, it is in electronic format, so you do not need to go anywhere or surrender your passport. Just fill New Zealand on-line visa application form, pay the fee and get the visa in your email box in 2 days.

Brittany, France

Sainte-Marine, near Combrit, is a stunning part of Brittany. We went there on a family holiday in 2017, driving through Normandy, staying in Honfleur and Rennes on the way. We rented a cottage about 1500 feet from the sea and 5 minutes walk from the village centre. Sainte-Marine boasts a beautiful harbor, a patisserie and lots of fabulous harbor-front restaurants where you can sip a glass of local cider, gorge on moules et frites and people-watch to your heart’s content. The beach is stunning, with amazing walks around the coast.

Monschau at Eifel mountains, Germany

Among the most delightful pieces of Germany is the Eifel mountains (a continuation of the Ardennes), including the lovely town of Monschau. Thirty kilometers south of Aachen, an hour from Cologne and exactly at the Belgian fringe, it’s enchanting, with its half-timbered and record houses. The Rur (not Ruhr) waterway streams past those, and exhibition halls clarify draperies (the Red House), just as the creation of mustard and lager. There are trips to the Rur boundary lake in summer and to the laborers’ life historical center in Lammersdorf.

Florence, Italy

 

There is no place like Florence. Make the trek up to the Piazzale Michelangelo, gathering bread, cheddar, and wine from the astounding business sector first. At that point head down to wonder about the Duomo, and walk the boulevards searching for the Medici balls on the structures. No excursion would be finished without a visit to David. Transforming into the long room and seeing the statue toward the end basically blows your mind. Indeed, even in the jam-packed lanes and the exhibition halls, you feel absolutely alone with excellence.

If you are not a Canadian passport holder you need to get a visa to Schengen zone called Schengen visa. This may be easily done by engaging www.eurovisacenter.com.

Low cost offers on flights and hotels in Europe and other parts of the world may be obtained from our travel page.
