About Kenya

Kenya is high on many safari seekers’ list and its not hard to understand why. “Safari means “journey” in Swahili and it is in Kenya that the safari began and continues to flourish. This remarkable country has some of the most dramatic game viewing in Africa, including the famous legendary plains of the Masai Mara with wall-to-wall game and migration of a million wildebeest; there is the fabled African tribe, the tall, red-robed Masai; there is the iconic snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, and the great game reserve of Amboseli, and Tsavo, with the Laikipia Plateau in the north fast becoming one of Kenya’s hottest game destinations.

There are the Lakes Nakuru, Magadi and Naivasha – pink with flamingos and teeming with waterbirds of all kinds. Add the gorgeous tropical coastline with its long, white sandy beaches and coral gardens, beautiful resorts and guest houses, awesome fishing and amazing water activities, the friendly welcoming people – Jambo! (Welcome!) – Which is on everyone’s lips – then you’ll see why Kenya has been a top tourist destination for over 100 years.
