The whole of the UK has had more than its fair share of rain recently. Certainly here in the South East every conversation starts with a check on the weather and the level of the local river.

To say that I am sick of drying the dog is an understatement and she is one that does not jump in ponds and puddles!

So where would I go to get a change of scene, temperature and hours of sun? It is no secret that Sub Saharan Africa is firmly in my heart and January and February is a wonderful time to be in East Africa. The temperatures are great, the coast sparkling and the Indian Ocean beautifully warm. Getting there is straight forward with a number of airlines offering keen prices at this time of the year.

So as the dampness in your bones dissipates in the hot African sun, your thoughts may turn to what you could do to add to your holiday. You are in one of the best wildlife locations in the world and adding a short safari would obviously make this a holiday to remember. In Kenya there are a number of National Parks within easy driving distances of the coast – Tsavo East and West with its red coloured elephants and the Shimba Hills with sable antelope as a key attraction. If you are willing to take a short internal flight, then the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru and all the other wonderful National Parks of Kenya are there to tempt you.

If you are on the beach in Tanzania or Zanzibar, Then an hour’s flight will have you in the Selous National Park and staying in a lodge overlooking the mighty Rufiji River, which is full of hippo and crocs and a favourite drinking place for all the wildlife of this unchanged part of Africa.

So if you want to dry out under a hot African sun, give Peter a call on 01323 446550 or email him on peter@experienceholidays.co.uk.

Look forward to hearing from you.
