A gap year provides the time to embark on an adventure while you are free of responsibilities, and, if you plan well, you can learn a great deal and enhance your CV too. A Kenya safari provides all that and more – excellent adventure, experiencing new cultures, seeing wildlife in its native habitat, whilst broadening your mind.
Kenya is a popular resort and one of Africa’s more famous destinations. It has some of the best game reserves to be found anywhere on Earth, and boasts a dizzying variety of wildlife, including zebras, elephants, cheetahs and lions. The Kenya Highlights safari takes four days and includes the Great Rift Valley and Masai Mara National Park; during the journey you will see wild animals, including pink flamingos and hippos, and also have free time to explore the capital Nairobi.
Kenya safari trips can be enhanced by a hot air balloon ride – after all, what better way to enjoy the serene landscape of Africa, and all that it contains, than with a bird’s eye view of the whole expanse? An early morning ride will have you witnessing the incredible sunrise over the Masai Mara, as the land come to life as the animals wake. From your lofty perch, you will feel like a spectator of the natural world. Upon descent, you will be treated to a champagne breakfast in the bush, which concludes the experience.
Africa possesses excitement and opportunity at every turn, all of which can be found the moment you step off the plane and onto the great plains. Whether you stay a week or a year, you’ll soon realise that there is no place on earth like Africa. Visit http://www.kenya-safari.co.uk/ for Kenya safari holidays.
