Agro Tourism in Africa
Africa is a continent of agricultural activities, in view of this, tourism has developed dynamically and today many visitors go to Africa for agricultural tourism and safaris. Africa north of Kalahari Desert and south of Sahara desert in between agricultural activities take place in massive production of food stuff which feed Africa and the world over. Agricultural activities in Africa are all year round because they centre in between the equator line.
It is in Africa where you will find proper Organic farming in practice. Agricultural tourism in Africa is not a new concept in tourism but it is a new adventure which Niche Africa Holidays is advocating with the help of our partners in other African countries except East Africa which includes the east Africa Community.
We are able to take visitors from all over the world to various African countries.
Agro Tourism in East Africa
East Africa includes Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania and Burundi which includes Pemba and Zanzibar islands. These form the new East Africa community which is rich in agricultural activities since agriculture is the back bone of food supply in this part of the continent of Africa. East Africa has several agricultural activities which include fish farming (aqua culture), Horticulture, Floriculture, sericulture, Beef and Dairy, coffee, tea, bee keeping, poultry, pig rearing and fruit farming. All these activities are carried by multi-national companies’ up to peasant farmers staying in East Africa.
Niche Africa holidays encourages agricultural tourism among the above mentioned calibers both in the multi- national farms which includes floriculture farms, rice and horticulture farms stationed around Lake Victoria at Dominion farms and along Lake Naivasha. Going to Uganda, we have large plantations of bananas and fruits, while at the coast of East Africa we have the cloves. Coconut farming and aquaculture which includes the lobsters and the sea fish production.
Agricultural Safaris and Tourism In Kenya
Kenya, being a country which is crossed by the equator is favorable all year round for planting of various agricultural produce due to its daily sun-shine which lasts 12 hours a day. Kenya is an agricultural country for many years with agriculture being the leading government revenue earner. This has been surpassed in recent years by tourism. Nevertheless, Kenya is one of the leading world producers of tea, coffee and cut flowers. In view of this, Niche Africa Holidays is concentrating in performing agricultural tours and safaris around Lake Victoria peasant farmers and the multi-national dominion farms at the delta of river yala which pours into the massive Lake Victoria. The other centre of agricultural-tourism include the tea plantations in kericho and limuru areas, coffee within limuru and central province, aquaculture around central and nyanza provinces which includes sagana area and lake Victoria development basin where you find the aquaculture activities based mainly at the dominion farms, which of late has become a tourist attraction due to it’s massive production of horticulture, rice, bee keeping and aqua culture mainly in cut fish and tilapia production. Dominion farms exports its produce world over mainly to the USA, Uganda and Tanzania.
