Yes Please Safaris are packed with awe-inspiring experiences, including up-close encounters with the celebrated "Big Five" -- lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes.‘CRADLE OF MANKIND’ History has it that Man’s earliest ancestors may well have originated here in Africa, Turkana, Northern Kenya as long as five million years ago.Kenya is the original home of African safari (safari means travel in Swahili). For the ultimate holiday experience, you can often combine your safari with a city or beach extension.The beaches of Kenya look everything like the tropical paradise archetype: powdery white sand beaches lined by palm trees, ever shining sun and beach resorts where you’re being pampered in all conceivable waysBwindi is one of the few in Africa to have flourished throughout the last Ice Age and it is home to roughly half of the world's mountain gorillas.what wildlife experience can rival the chance to sit face to face with giant primates, with whom we share 97 percent of our biology?The source of the NileFlanked today by the calm town of Jinja, the waterfall described by Speke now lies submerged beneath the Owen Falls Dam, Uganda’s main source of hydro-electric power. Still, a visit to the source of the Nile remains a moving and wondrous experience, no less so to those who have seen the same river as it flows past the ancient Egyptian temples of Luxor some 6,000 km downstream.The source of the Nile, alluded to hazily in the ancient writings of Ptolemy, stood as one of the great geographical mysteries of the Victorian Age.Closer to home, the Nile downriver from Jinja offers some superb white water rafting and game fishing.Its crowning glory, however, is Murchison Falls, where the world’s longest river funnels through a narrow fissure in the Rift Escarpment to erupt out of the other side in a crashing 43 metres plume of white water. The river below the falls is no less spectacular in its own way, with its profuse birdlife, thousands of hippos, and outsized, gape-mouthed crocodiles
