6 Days / 5 Nights Best of western circuit
Get to see the only equatorial tropical rainforest in Kenya, left over from past millennia when dense rain forest stretched from West Africa, across Central Africa and into the highland areas on the west and eastern walls of the Great Rift Valley. The forest includes some of Africa’s greatest hard and soft woods: splendid orchids sit amongst the branches of the larger trees. The trees create a complete environment for the birds, insects, butterflies and wildlife, so plentiful in the area. Also get to know about the first organized administration in Africa that puzzled the missionaries and explorers “The Wanga Kingdom”. Historians believe that the Kingdom was established in the 16c and collapsed during Kenya’s colonial and independent times however it was revamped by the current King Peter Mumia.
Lake Victoria (Dholuo: Nam Lolwe; Luganda: ‘Nnalubaale; Kinyarwanda: Nyanza; also Ukerewe) is one of
the African Great Lakes. Though having multiple local language names, the lake was renamed after Queen
Victoria by the explorer John Hanning Speke, the first Briton to document it in 1858, while on an expedition
with Richard Francis Burton. With a surface area of approximately 59,947 km2 (23,146 sq mi), Lake Victoria
is Africa’s largest lake by area, the world’s largest tropical lake,and the world’s second-largest fresh water lake
by surface area after Lake Superior in North America. The lake has a maximum depth of between 80 & 84 m
(262 and 276 ft) and an average depth of 40 m (130 ft). The lake’s area is divided among three countries:
Kenya occupies 6% (4,100 km2 (1,600 sq mi)), Uganda 45% (31,000 km2 (12,000 sq mi)), and Tanzania 49% (33,700 km2 (13,000 sq mi)).
