Shared Safaris are most popular in Kenya with the present trend of the world travelers.
(TRAVPR.COM) KENYA - September 28th, 2012 - Budget travelers are increasingly looking for holiday destinations on the internet opting to join other people for any safari package in Kenya. Most Tourists use price as a major factor in deciding which safari company to use thus the idea to share the costs.
Over the past 8 months it has been reported that there has been an increase of requests by single and budget travelers on shared Safaris. Group bookings arranged to make travel and accommodation cheaper for tourists in Kenya have dominated this safari option, the groups are encouraged to charter planes at reduced airfares from Europe to Kenya to come and join Safari Ndovu 6 days safari package.
Featuring of the Safari Ndovu 6 day safari package by Cruzeiro-Safaris.com is a pocket friendly safari incorporating 2 national parks, 1 game reserve and 1 popular eatery attraction. It is important for tourists to know the different wildlife terminologies used in Kenya such as National parks, game reserves and sanctuaries found in Kenya.
National Parks are set up and controlled by the central government. They are established by an Act of Parliament or through legal notice by the Minister concerned, in the government gazette. Its boundaries or existence can only be altered by similar legislative action. National Parks are managed and controlled by government agencies. The agencies collect entry fees to the parks, take care of the animals and assist in resolving the people – animal conflict. The Safari Ndovu 6 day Safari package visits 2 (two) of these National Parks namely Amboseli and Lake Nakuru National Parks.
National Game reserves or National Reserves are set up and managed by the local authority where it is located. The local communities interact freely with the wildlife before such an area is declared a game reserve. Unlike National Parks, the local communities are allowed to live and graze their animals in game reserves. For example, the Maasai people live and graze their animals in Maasai Mara without being restricted by the management of the park. Game reserves may also be set up and owned and managed by private individuals with special permission from the Central Government. In Laikipia district, there are several game reserves that are privately owned and fenced off from the public.
The Government has little control over what takes place in the privately-owned game ranches. Whereas the government has banned game hunting, animals in privately owned ranches are slaughtered to provide game meat to major hotels in Nairobi and Mombasa under licence from the Central Government. The Safari Ndovu 6 days Safari package visit 1 (one) reserve namely the Maasai Mara National Reserve.
Wildlife Sanctuaries are areas that have been set aside for the protection of specific animals or birds if they are considered endangered for one reason or other. In an environment where elephants are threatened by poachers for example, a protected area is established and fenced off to host only elephants, where they are cared for and secured. Such an area is called an elephant sanctuary such as the Mwaluganje National reserve in Kwale Disctrict. The Safari Ndovu - 6 days package does not visit any sanctuary, however at Cruzeiro-safaris, one may request for a tailored safari to the Sweet Waters Sanctuary caring for Chimpanzees or any other Sanctuary.
The one eatery attraction in the Safari Ndovu - 6 days safari package itinerary is called the Carnivore Restaurant in Nairobi. Guests on the Amboseli National Reserve 3 days package safari or Lake Nakuru & Maasai Mara 4 days package safari may join in or drop off on pre-organised group tours after a sumptuous meal at the Carnivore, featuring various kinds of game meat. Carnivore is also known as the meat eaters’ paradise.

One of our guests from Russia who travelled to 1 park and 1 reserve had this to say on our trip advisor page
“Lake Nakuru & Massai Mara” “My wife and me spent 4 days at Lake Nakuru and Maasai Mara Sopa lodges with Cruseiro. The pick up/drop off from NBO airport.
I like the concept when Cruseiro gives you the mini-bus with a driver who is also a very good guide and who always stays with you during your Safari. The driver/guide is absolutely flexible for you to get maximum pleasure from your trip. The mini-bus hasn't been very comfortable but nearly all Kenyan safari operators use this type of Toyota vans as it's realistically very reasonable for Kenyan roads.
Lake Nakuru lodge has a very picturesque location. We could watch rhinos fighting in 20 meters from our lodge window. Maasai Sopa although had much better kitchen. The only negative impression was extremely noisy neighborhood - Chinese in lake Nakuru and north American in Maasai Sopa.
Special thanks to our very experienced guide and driver Simon. We enjoyed his gentleman manners and good sence of humor. Simon did his best to please us up to the end of the trip. Besides, Simon has a very good feeling of where to go to see the best of the wild life. Many thanks to Andrew and Claudia as well. It was a great experience for us !”
