Yesterday we asked if you knew what part of the world the pictures below are from? If you said East Africa then you are correct! Synonymous with safaris and adventures, this part of the world offers so many wonderful and very unique golf travel opportunities.
The three East African nations of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda offer a wonderful selection of luxury tours that combine golf on championship golf courses with an array of other excellent travel options such as a safari, exclusive resorts or climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, the world's tallest free standing mountain.
Golf tours to this region can focus on individual countries or a multiweek transnational type extravaganza. Below are some of our recommended options and tour highlights.
Many international flights to this region fly into Nairobi the capital of Kenya and the golf circuit here is blessed with a number of high quality golf courses.
