New UK site punts Kenyan safaris
INTERNETBy BiztechAfrica - Aug. 15, 2012, 9:09 a.m.
A new website dedicated to unique safaris in Kenya has launched in the UK. The site, MasaiMaraSafari.co.uk, offers travellers a selection of wildlife adventures built around the annual wildebeest migration.
The site has been developed by specialist African travel company, ReserveKenya.com. Dedicated to the beautiful Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya, it has been set up to provide carefully planned safaris including an extra special selection timed to coincide with the migration from July - October each year. The site also offers off-season trips for budget-conscious explorers as well as a range of itinerary and accommodation options such as honeymoons and group tours.
Andrew Waruingi, the Commercial Director, said: "As one of the seven new wonders of the world, the wildebeest migration is a hugely popular annual event. It can be difficult to secure accommodation and with a route that spans thousands of miles, hard to know which spot to pick for a safari holiday. Our new web site takes the stress and guesswork out of the task of booking a Masai Mara safari with our tried-and-tested itineraries, carefully sourced accommodation options and clear availability. Many visitors book up to a year in advance for a chance to witness the wildebeest making their epic pilgrimage.
We can help with planning, designing a bespoke safari programme including travel, entertainment and lodging, ensure the best spot from which to watch the animals migrate across the river and into the plains, all tailored to personal budget and duration preferences."
"With our dedicated team of Kenya safari experts, planning specialists and a commitment to sustainable, responsible eco-tourism, this new site is an invaluable resource for those eager to embark on the trip of a lifetime."
Visitors to MasaiMariSafari.co.uk can arrange 1 to 11 day safaris, staying at the Masai Mara Reserve with a choice of accommodation options including luxurious tents, each equipped with its own bathroom, hot shower and comfortable bedding.
Other choices include a fly-in option and a beach safari combo. The site is updated throughout the year with special offers, destination news and nature updates.
