East Africa is one of the most endowed regions on the planet earth. From savanna national parks featuring great wildlife spectacles to thick tropical rain forests that habour native African apes, there is a lot of biodiversity in East Africa. At East Africa Journeys we invite you for an amazing exploration throughout the East African region. On this website find exclusive information and advice about the best places to visit, things to see and do, travel and stay in the various countries within the East African region. You will also find a good selection of safaris and tours featuring the best highlights of East Africa.
Where to Stay
East Africa has a wide selection of hotels and restaurants in tourist areas and major towns, plus some of Africa’s most elite safari lodges and luxury tented camps. If you’re on a midrange or top-end budget, travel here is Africa made easy, with just enough adventure to keep things satisfying.
If you’re travelling on a shoestring, things get more rugged. Expect to stay in basic guesthouses, and to put in time bumping over rough roads on crowded buses. The rewards: getting into the pulse of East Africa, and seeing how most locals live.
Things to Do
Whatever your style, there’s plenty to keep you busy – mountain trekking, wildlife safaris, up-close encounters with our primate relatives, moss-covered ruins, palm-fringed beaches and much more.
Traveling East Africa
Major destinations are connected by reasonably good air connections and reliable (albeit often gruelling) bus routes, but you’ll need plenty of time to cover the often long distances. Costs range from high, for people staying in upscale safari lodges (especially in Tanzania, which is generally the most expensive destination in the region), to modest, for those living local style. If you don’t have time pressures it’s quite easy to set your itinerary as you go, but, especially for safaris and treks, you’ll get better quality and prices by doing some advance planning. When charting your route, remember that East Africa is large; it’s much better to concentrate on one or two areas, than to try and cover too much distance in one visit.
