A country that inspired Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway, the legendary writer and friend of the Black Continent, has left his mark in Kenya because this land beguiled and inspired him: “All I wanted was to come back to Africa, we had not left it yet – and yet, when I lay awake and listened at night, I was already homesick. ” For half a year, the adventurer and his wife Mary traveled the savannahs of Kenya, and the stations where he enjoyed nature with its abundant wildlife and succumbed to the charm of the land and its inhabitants are still cornerstones of a honeymoon journey. Who opens on luxury destinations in Kenya for the magic of the ancient mythical continent, will never forget this first journey of an ordinary life.

A couple is very close to the animals of Kenya during a honeymoon, but the confrontation is not dangerous because experienced rangers are familiar with the secrets of the wild. Game drives are the heart of every safari in the numerous reserves. For example, in the Tsavo National Park with its “red elephants” or in the Masai Mara, where thousands of zebras and wildebeests defy the danger of lions and crocodiles crossing rivers. Members of the proud people of the Masai accompany the newlyweds in both atmospheric and exciting bush walks, and those who wish can see all of this from the airy height of a hot-air balloon. Atmospheric are the evenings in one of the numerous luxurious lodges where the honeymoon suite is reserved and the view of a water hole, the source of many animals, many a viewer’s breath.

Kenya holiday destinations are also ideal for young couples because the fascination of the safari is combined with the amenities of a beach holiday. The seaside resorts on the Indian Ocean are true paradises with coconut palms in the gleaming white sand, a pleasant sea breeze, coral reefs for diving and snorkeling, and world-class hotels. A visit to the traditional tribes of the picturesque town of Mombasa, the enjoyment of the original life in the Lamu Archipelago, the scent of unknown spices in the markets – Kenya is a land full of wonders and surprises. And those who sign up for dinner at multiple-cuisine Restaurant in Mombasa at the time of his “Honey Moon” enjoy the mood of the moment and the endless starry sky over the picturesque bay. Many people are then struck by the feelings that once animated Hemingway to dream of returning home to “Kenya.”

Holidays In The Wildest Africa: Botswana

At Welgrow, we are very fans of the African continent, because it is a destination where we can observe wild animals living in their natural habitat, live in an impressive nature (jungle and coastal) and for the human quality of its people.

Among all the impressive places that make up the continent today, we want to make special mention of the Botswana region, a country yet to be discovered where you can escape a few days of everyday life and live in nature surrounded by lakes, large rivers, waterfalls and a spectacular savanna where to make safaris. But without having to give up the luxury and the sophistication of its precious lodges where travelers can stay.

Home to some of the continent’s most famous safari destinations, Botswana is, in a word, wild; but this quality is part of its charm. This is one of the few countries where you can experience the luxury destinations in Kenya in its pure state thanks to the vast sections of land that have been destined for conservation and that, if not for the recondite camps and lodges that are in these, they would be practically inaccessible – here you will not find roads or great infrastructure.

Few experiences compare to a safari in the Okavango Delta, whose permanent lagoons and deep channels offer all kinds of water activities throughout the year. Explore this watery labyrinth aboard a cruise or a traditional mokoro and marvel at its spectacular landscapes and the abundant wildlife that inhabits its waters, skies, and banks.

From the lush, lush swamps of Savuti and Linyati, to the extensive alluvial plains that lie along the Chobe River, Chobe National Park is another of the crown jewels of Botswana thanks to its immense Continue reading

Tips To Enjoy A Safari In Kenya

Kenya attracts mainly for its wildlife and its Rift-shaped landscapes, which combine in a single term: safari (meaning “travel” in Swahili). National parks and reserves (about forty in all) are an extraordinary invitation to discover the nature and the life that is given in spectacle.

The Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo) are all there and much more.

As a bonus, Kenya offers a variety of landscapes, which satisfy almost all dreams of escape: white sand beaches and coconut palms, islands of character, or paradise, south of Diani Beach, marine parks encouraging diving underwater, forests and deserts, hiking and even, for amateurs, mountaineering (Mount Kenya).

The red of the earth, the green of the foliage. The white of the sand, the blue of the water.

If you are about to live in Kenya holiday destinations to get first encounter with African wildlife, your kid dreams will not be disappointed!

What we loved in Kenya with family

See a lot of wild animals, including the famous “Big Five”! In the tradition of great African safaris, these are the five most powerful animals, hunters dreamed of having the trophy: the lion, the leopard, the elephant, the buffalo, and the rhinoceros. They are unfortunately only four because the rhinos have almost disappeared. It’s nice to have already “seen” at the zoo, it has nothing to do to discover them in the wilderness, in their natural habitat. It’s so impressive; it’s still breathless!

The savannah landscapes at dawn. And yes, departure for the safari around 6:30! The awakening is hard, and it drags a bit of feet, but the sublime spectacle nails the beak to all the moaners: the softness of the light, the Kilimanjaro which is cut out on the horizon, one or two balloons in the sky, the wild animals. Beautiful!

Sleep in lodges, inside the reserve. This little bungalow drowned in nature. From her bed, Lola saw lots of little monkeys running everywhere, incredible birds. Some lodges are even equipped with water points where wild animals come to drink at sunset: guaranteed show at the end of the day!

When is the best time to go?

In a country as extensive as Kenya, with such a variety of ecosystems and counting on the unpredictable nature of time, it becomes tough to make general estimates about the weather. The essential fact to know about the weather is that there are two rainy seasons, from April to June, which is the primary rainy season, and the “short rains” of October.

The climate in the high zones is a combination of mild temperatures during the day and a decrease of it during the night. The equatorial situation in Kenya means that sunrise and sunset are every day at approximately the same time, with few changes in temperature throughout the year.

Most people travel to luxury safari destinations Kenya to do a Safari between June to September and November to March. Traveling at these times of the year increases the chances of seeing animals since the grass is shorter and it is easier for animals to go out at nightfall to go to the water troughs. This means that the prices will be more affordable for those travelers who decide to travel in the low season, also, having fewer people can enjoy a much more trip.
