9-Nights The Heart of Kenya & Tanzania
The Heart of Kenya & Tanzania
Plenteous and Pithy East Africa
The names alone are magic: The Serengeti. Ngorongoro Crater. The Maasai Mara. We're reminded that when we travel, we visit names as well as places-names with romantic heft, names that resound, names that may have captivated us for many years. Names like Ngorongoro. (Then again, if we'd never heard that sonorous name, and we made the exhilarating drive up the flank of the old volcano and reached its rim and suddenly beheld the green and animal-thronged crater far below, Ngorongoro would be just as utterly amazing.)
In less than two weeks, The Heart of Kenya and Tanzania introduces us-or re-introduces us-to places with famous names, but most of all, it brings us to fantastic places, fantastic in the sense that their like is to be found exactly nowhere else on earth.
