Nairobi, Kenya, 2017-Jun-13 — /EPR Network/ — The migration of wildebeests and zebras have now entered the Mara. This has been confirmed today (7th June, 2017) after a fact finding mission round the entry points along the Mara and Serengeti border. Though this is still in its’ initial stages, every indication shows that the stage is set for the world’s most fascinating wildlife spectacle. A few herds of mainly zebras and wildebeest have crossed the border near sand river gate. They could be seen this morning taking their traditional route towards Roan hill, and some have already crossed the main road to the Mara river from Sekenani gate. Their movement however is slower because of the amount of grass in their way. Since April this year we have continued having intermittent rains which has made the plains covered in long green grass. we are still experiencing sporadic rain showers.

To coincide with the launch of Emirates Tours’ travel packages for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the tour operating arm of Emirates Airline has launched a new section on its website to highlight the new luxury holiday options.
A range of luxury holidays in South Africa enable football fans to enjoy the FIFA World Cup with the minimum of fuss. Booking an Emirates Tours package means flights, hotels, match tickets and ground transport are all taken care of. Customers can book luxury holidays now – before the draw is made for the FIFA World Cup – and be based in either Johannesburg, Cape Town or Durban. Emirates Tours expects the highest demand to be for England tickets although other teams’ tickets are also available.
The new web section gives details of the way these luxury holiday deals can be customised, and has an extensive frequently asked questions guide as well as a brochure for the 2010 FIFA World Cup with prices and a list of terms and conditions.
The FIFA World Cup packages are available to customers through the Emirates Tours website or by phoning the tour operator directly.
Fabio Prestijacopo, General Manager for Emirates Tours UK, said: “We’re very excited about the new section detailing the packages that are sold exclusively via Emirates Tours in the UK. Customers can find all the information they need about the packages by downloading our brochure.”
Release Travel, a leading travel agent that specialises in stag and hen weekends says that its sales for 2009 so far have been unprecedented.
Downturn or not, weddings are still going ahead and Release Travel has found that this particular area of group travel is still strong and bucking the present trends within the travel market.
Daniel Landen, Managing Director said “We have seen an increase in the numbers of people going on each weekend from 13.24 (people per group) to an average group size of 13.67 (people per group), this is going against the industry standard and proving that a weekend away with a group of friends is the perfect way to forget about the tough world we are all in today.”
He went on to add “We have also seen a strong number of stag weekends travelling further a field with over 28% of our bookings travelling outside of the UK. There has even been a sharp increase of stag and hen parties looking to travel as far a field as Las Vegas and Dubai.”
A poll carried out by Penguin has revealed that Jeremy Clarkson’s book, For Crying Out Loud, has topped a poll of Britons’ favourite beach reads of all time.
The outspoken ‘Top Gear’ presenter’s book has been voted as the number one beach read of all time, beating off competition from blockbusters including Dan Brown’s ‘Da Vinci Code’ and classics such as Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
More than 7000 Britons voted for their favourite beach read in an online poll compiled by Teletext Holidays and Penguin.
Chick-lit queen Marian Keyes came in at number two with her bestselling paperback This Charming Man, followed by modern classic The Beach by Alex Garland, which was turned into a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
Iceland ProTravel, the fully licensed tour operator, has reported a massive increase in UK travellers to Iceland, spurred by the favourable exchange rate between the Great British pound and the Icelandic krona.
Coupled with the fact that the average price of petrol is currently lower in Iceland than in the UK, Iceland ProTravel has been recommending a self drive holiday for travellers who are yet to make up their mind about where to go.
Having recently taken top spot in the annual ‘Best Value Holiday Destinations’ report carried out by the Post Office, Iceland is expected to see even greater interest as a holiday destination. In response, Iceland’s main airline is increasing its number of flights from the UK to Iceland in September 2009.
As the pound continues to lose value against the euro, there are only three countries in Europe where UK tourists can expect a favourable exchange rate: Iceland, Hungary and Poland.
Eli Masson, general manager of Iceland ProTravel, said: “We recommend to our clients that they go to Iceland this summer and autumn because of the favourable exchange rate.
“On our self drive tours we find that all our clients this summer have over budgeted their spending money. One pound will get you 209 krona now, but 18 months ago you would only get 130.
“We feel that the interest in Iceland has increased a lot and we have seen that numbers of people travelling there has doubled from last year.”
While most visitors to Iceland travel to the capital – and many more expected to be in Reykjavik for the city’s marathon in August – Iceland ProTravel is recommending more people make Iceland breaks and look into car rental in order to explore the savings and the full length and breadth of Iceland.
Flights from Iceland take three hours from London. Flights to Reykjavik are also available from Manchester, with Glasgow flights planned for later in the year.
