NAIROBI, Kenya, 2022-Aug-31 — /EPR Network/ — Kenya’s tourism industry is booming in business and 2021- 2026 is looking even better after recovery for a long time. Cruzeiro Safaris Kenya’s strength in packaging tours and committed service delivery is expected to increase in the future.

Undoubtedly, Kenya is the best African country for safari experience with lots and lots of wildlife viewing.

For a long time Cruzeiro Safaris Kenya, has taken travelers to various destinations within Nairobi and tourist destinations within KenyaTanzania and Zanzibar.

The Tour Operator has for years utilized the distributions of International brands to marketer and distribute their tours on commission basis. The distributors had a competitive advantage in that the clients could read and book tours online to the last stage. They will still continue distributing through their online partners.

Cruzeiro Safaris Kenya saw this as an opportunity to exploit and dive into the big ocean of international brands. This challenge has been overcome and now this Online Tour Agency (OTA) and operator have launched their online tours booking platform in collaboration with payment getaway PESAPAL which is verified by VeriSign International. PESAPAL accept credit cards VISA and MASTERCARD and mobile money as well.

‘Delving into the online market is worth the risk, because Nairobi is become the hub for multi-national corporations, we believe we shall make significant strides in terms of sales revenue. Our service delivery remains top-notch and continuous priority as you can read from the trip advisor page and other pages. Just Google Cruzeiro Safaris Kenya’ says Susan the Tourism Manager.

New Children’s Picture Book with Stunning Artwork Explores the World of a Hopi Indian Girl

Newly released picture book about a Hopi Indian girl takes readers through many metaphorical doors to explore the different aspects that make each our lives: family, friendship, culture, education, creativity, and nature.

Washington, DC (USA), November 19th, 2015 — Newly released picture book about a Hopi (pronounced: hope-ee) Indian girl takes readers through many metaphorical doors to explore the different aspects that make each our lives: family, friendship, culture, education, creativity, and nature.

TALASI… A Story of Tenderness and Love exposes children to new experiences as Talasi explores her native world and later the modern culture of the white man while holding to Native American beliefs and traditions. This charming and lovingly illustrated picture book teaches young readers how love and friendships get us over the rough spots in life and to never stop exploring the world around them.

Many American children are growing up in a multicultural world and are curious to understand all the cultures surrounding them. “Traveling through Arizona, I was terrible curious myself about what life on an Indian reservation was like when I visited a Hopi tribe,” said author Ellen S. Cromwell. “I wanted to understand the culture of these amazing people and visited with a kikmongwi, primarily a religious leader for the tribe. This experience truly touched me.”

TALASI… A Story of Tenderness and Love is about a young Hopi Indian girl named Talasi. Her name comes from corn tassel flowers that surround her pueblo home in Arizona. Tassels are tall, slender flowers clustered at the very top of corn. Corn, in its many forms, provides basic nourishment for Hopi People.

Wonderfully written, this children’s book clearly reflects the author’s fascination with the Hopi people and their history. Hopi means “peaceful person” or “civilized person” in the Hopi language and Ellen S. Cromwell evokes a compelling portrait of the Hopi Indians and how they truly are a peaceful people. “The richness of Talasi’s Indian culture will expand the horizons of any child who reads this book,” said illustrator Desiree Sterbini. “I researched to make sure every illustration was authentic to the Hopi culture. I wanted the themes of love, family, and friendship to be something each child could relate to. The images are personal as they are from actual pictures of my mother-in-law and daughter.”

With the author and illustrator using personal, real life experiences and pictures to draw from, the book exemplifies what it means to value all cultures that make up the world we live in and that no matter what children can solve problems with love and courage. “A lot of the imagery is from personal experiences. I grew up as an immigrant in the Bronx and remember the neighborhood coming together to build this treehouse for all the kids to play in. It was amazing and we felt like we were on top of the world as kids up there,” said author Ellen S. Cromwell. “Those childhood experiences and what I learned from the Hopi tribe and its culture helped me create Talasi and her world.”

Not only does this picture book have multicultural overtones, but parents and educators will find the author used sight words and repetition to make this the perfect book for classrooms and bookshelves.

“Reading a book together as a family or in the classroom is one simple yet very special tradition,” said Halo Publisher Lisa M. Umina. “Readers of all ages will find this picture book is heartwarming and helps keep you and your children connected through the upcoming holiday season.”

You can purchase “TALASI… A Story of Tenderness and Love” through Halo Publishing’s website (http://halopublishing.com), Amazon, and B&N.

Delightful Children’s Picture about a Tiny Tree Frog Wins Multiple Book Awards

Children’s book author Anita Turnage understands the importance of sharing nature with children. Animals and nature are the perfect medium through which to gently teach important lessons and about the world we live in.

Houston, TX (USA), May 23rd, 2015 — Children’s book author Anita Turnage understands the importance of sharing nature with children. Animals and nature are the perfect medium through which to gently teach important lessons and about the world we live in. In this endearing tale filled with vivid and colorful illustrations by Kim Sponaugle, a little boy named Haden, who loves to catch bugs, shares exciting adventures with Nana T in her garden. One day, while on hands and knees, they come face to face with a tiny little tree frog. Hops begins to visit daily and Haden’s fascination grows as he learns about frogs, what they eat and where they live in the winter time.

“Hops” is based on the escapades of a very real tree frog in author Anita Turnage’s backyard. “I’m an avid gardener and I fell head over heels in love with this little tree frog,” said Turnage. “After several weeks of him following me around the yard and house, and my grandson becoming really excited about our little visitor, I decided to write down the different adventures my grandson and I were having together with our tree frog friend.”

Recently “Hops” won the Conversations Award for the Best Regional Book of the Year (2015), the Loewenherz-Creative Award for Best Children’s Picture Book and the Reader Views Kids Award for Best Children’s Picture Book of the Year (2015).

“I’m very excited and still in shock Hops won so many awards,” said Turnage. “My head has been spinning since receiving the news.”

The criteria for each award is chosen from the first place winners in both fiction and nonfiction, and “Hops” placed first in each award category, honoring the this cute children’s picture book with many gold seals.

“I’m really humbled that so many readers found value in my story,” said Turnage. “However, I really feel I need to share these awards with all those who helped make this book possible, those who supported me through this process, and of course, with my fans as it was a team effort.”

Author Anita Turnage feels writing and reading is something that brings everyone together. She loves sharing ideas and the different events she experiences with her grandchildren while out in nature. She does give a lot of credit to her grandson who was such an enjoyable creative mind to work with as she penned the different events with their little tree frog, Hops.

Halo International Publisher, Lisa Umina said, “Anita is an amazing author and her stories are always full of fun and adventure. Hops is a delightful story that inspires children to explore their natural world, something many caregivers feel is important as children are easily drawn indoors by technology. Hops helps get children and adults alike sharing adventures with Nana T and Haden in their garden during reading time.”

Readers can find “Hops” in the Halo Publishing bookstore ( http://www.halopublishing.com ) or at any online bookstore such as Amazon and B&N. Available both in Hardback and eBook.

Biography:
Anita Turnage, “Nana T,” lives in the Carolinas with her husband, Ralph, “Pop”, and English Setter, Izzie. She retired from corporate life after 27 years and is now a full time wife, mother, grandmother and gardener. The days she savors the most are those spent with her grandchildren. As a gift to her grandchildren, “Nana T” takes pen in hand to recount delightful adventures she shared with them.

The tour is designed for travellers to discover the very best of the New Seven Wonders of Vietnam’s Halong Bay and North Vietnam in relation to adventure, culture, sightseeing, style and comfort.

Hanoi, Vietnam, July 15, 2012 – Luxury Travel Ltd, which is the Asian luxury specialist in privately guided and fully bespoke holidays, offers luxury tours in Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar, has revealed a new offering. It will now be providing 7-day tours of northern Vietnam, which will include Sapa, Hanoi and a new 7 wonders of the world tour, Halong Bay. The tour will offer holidaymakers a complete experience of the area’s nature, authenticity, heritage and culture. The company specializes in designing tailor-made tours and giving holidaymakers unique travel experiences. http://www.luxurytravelvietnam.com/EN/Vietnam_tours/Vietnam_Stopover_Tours/Best_Of_Northern_Vietnam_7days.htm

The tour will start off with a day in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam and its second biggest city. Then holidaymakers will get to travel to Lao Cai, a city on the nation’s border with China, on a night train. From there, they will make a short trip to Sapa and then return to Hanoi after some exploring. Upon their return to the capital, they will visit Halong Bay, which is a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site and newly voted as the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

Ha Long Bay is a world heritage site and one of Vietnam’s popular tourist destinations. It is located about three hours east of Hanoi in the Gulf of Tonkin near the northern Chinese border. The emerald water is dotted with 1,700 dramatic limestone formations that form tiny islands.

Some 500 boats are licensed to take tourists on cruises. Many opt for day tours, while others prefer to sleep in overnight cabins on wooden junks, ranging from budget to luxury accommodation.

The luxury tour isn’t lacking in the ‘luxury’ department by any means. It comes complete with private concierge services – transportation, a private cabin on a boat cruise, door-to-door pick up and drop off services, deluxe train services, an everyday tour guide that speaks either French or English, and meals. This is all priced at just US$1190 per person for first class and US$1,615 per person for a private party of two people for deluxe travel.

Luxury Travel (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) sales and marketing manager David Nguyen says that northern Vietnam is always an appealing destination for travellers visiting the nation – Hanoi, Sapa and Halong Bay are their favourites. Holidaymakers will enjoy ending their tour ‘with a relaxing traditional junk trip’ and participating in several types of activities – sitting on the sundeck with a glass of wine, cave climbing or kayaking in this new seven wonders of the World.

Luxury Travel Ltd chief executive Pham Ha says that Vietnam is an Asian charm. The northern area has always appealed to travellers, he also noted. The rich history, amazing diversity of people and landscapes, and unique cultures welcome holidaymakers seeking a truly authentic experience. Vietnam is quickly becoming an exciting hotspot for the high-end tourist, with new luxury hotels, world class golf courses, luxury train journeys, upscale private tours and exclusive cruises.

Ha went on to explain that travellers will discover the best of Hanoi, Halong Bay and Sapa on this seven-day tour, which also includes a visit to the Thang Long Citadel World Heritage site in Hanoi. During the visit in Sapa, they will trek to hill tribal villages and be treated to a luxury night on a junk boat. The tour is designed for travellers to discover the very best of North Vietnam in relation to adventure, culture, sightseeing, style and comfort. It’s so unique and special for a lifetime experience, he added.

Locally based specialists in privately guided and fully tailor-made holidays, The first luxury tour operator/DMC (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) based in Hanoi with offices throughout Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand, Luxury Travel is exceptional in designing tailor-made tours and providing unique travel experiences.
