Kenya

Why Kenya?

Kenya offers abundant travel options from mountains and deserts, colorful tribal culture, beaches and coral reefs, and some of Africa’s best wildlife attractions. Stunning landscapes set the scene, from Kakamega’s rainforests to Indian Ocean beaches by way of Mt Kenya National Park; the rolling grasslands of the Maasai Mara to searing deserts on the shores of the Jade Sea; with The Great Rift Valley, home to Hell’s Gate National Park.

Wildlife safaris have been the mainstay of Kenya’s tourism for decades, and several Kenyan parks, like the Maasai Mara, are among the best places in Africa to see lions, elephants, leopards and the famous wildebeest migration. Kenya’s biggest city, Nairobi, has an interesting urban appeal with its lively cafes, museums and nightlife.
