The Blu Safari

When you talk about Africa, one of the things that came to mind at first are its colours.
For the daily episode of our virtual blog, we want to bring you some Blu…

The Blu Safari is an all-day-long excursion in a glass-bottomed boat and consists of a boat trip to admire the depths of the coral reef and spot dolphins in the open sea.
At 13 there will be a stop on the small island formed by a game of tides where you can have delicious grilled fish with barbecue in the water.

The Malindi and Watamu National Marine Reserve is the oldest marine reserve in Africa established in 1979 to protect 213 square kilometres of coast, coral reefs and open sea, from Mida Creek to Malindi.
The protected area also includes the small National Marine Park of Malindi and the National Marine Park of Watamu, which are among the areas of Kenya most suitable for snorkelling and diving, thanks to over 300 registered species of reef fish and a rich variety of reproduction of the embricata and green turtles, besides having been sighted also liutu tortoises and turtle bastard olive-trees.
The reserve of Malindi or Watamu is the point of departure to start the boat trip.

The stop for snorkelling is right before reaching the Sardegna 2 Atoll and the Island of Love visible only in case of low tide. The peculiarity is that you really see the formation of the island. Here, you can sunbathe lying on the very white coral sand, refreshing yourself with shallow and clear water.

Blu safari is for everyone: adults and children. Children will be enchanted by the infinite species among which there is the pufferfish. It’s funny behave will amaze you: it becomes puffier when going out of the water because when it is inside its natural environment it has a regular fish size.
You will never forget the colours of that day, of that sea, of that fishes.

For the day after Malaika Resort offers you many others excursions: experience Africa with us and don’t lose any of our suggestions!

We hope you enjoyed this step of our “virtual tour“!

Tsavo East National Park

Here we are for our third episode of our Virtual Tour! Today we want to amaze you with the tale of Tsavo East National Park, a magical place where nature is still the ruling force and human must be careful and respectful.

If there is a country in the world that boasts all God’s creations enclosed in its boundaries then Kenya is that country: diverse sceneries, ancient granitic hills, desert, coral reefs, wildlife, history and different cultures.

Each day offers you a new experience! Wildlife splendour ranges from the famous Big five of Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant and Buffalos to the aquatic attractions like dolphins, hippos, crocodiles…all awaiting you.

There you can encounter the wild animals in their majestic natural settings.

The excursions offered are many and one of the most amazing experience is doubtless the safari in the Tsavo East National Park.

The Park provides undeveloped wilderness homes to vast numbers of animals.

It is considered one of the world’s biodiversity strongholds, and its popularity is mostly due to the vast amounts of the diverse wildlife that can be seen, including lion, cape buffalo, maltitudes of elephants, cheetah, hippo, species of antelopes, leopard, hyena.

Moreover, 500 bird species have been recorded in the area, including ostriches, kestrels, buzzards, starlings, weaver birds, kingfishers, hornbills, secretary birds and herons.

Covering an area of about 13,747 square kilometres, Tsavo East National Park indeed is one of the oldest and largest parks in Kenya.

If you visit Kenya you cannot lose a Safari here.

It takes only 2 hours by car to reach the park from our resort. There is a paved road that is not something to be taken for granted in Kenya. Along the way you start enjoying the wonderful surrounding so that your safari starts before reaching the park.

You can choose between two options: you can spend one day leaving early in the morning and coming back in the evening, or you can stay one or even two night sleeping inside the savannah of the park.

For this latter option, the range of selection is from the cheapest to the most luxurious choice.

The cheapest one implies the adventure of sleeping in. Most people choose it not only for the price but even because it represents a unique experience.

If you like to sleep in a more comfortable situation, inside the park there are many lodges where you can sleep surrounded by the wildlife enjoying at the same time the amenities of a luxurious hotel.

The place where you will sleep does not matter very much: the most the recommended thing is to spend the night inside the park as you will live a once in a lifetime experience: the one to see the Savannah and its inhabitants at dawn.
