Kenya is renowned for its amazing landscapes, savannah rich with magnificent wildlife, diverse cultures unchanged by the modern world, pristine beaches and coral reef, equatorial forests and mighty snowcapped mountains, an exotic history and fascinating modern culture, and endless opportunities or adventure, discovery and relaxation. Scenic safaris through Kenya offer views and vistas beyond any expectations. Experience the boundless wilderness and big game of this country that have long attracted adventure seekers from around the globe. Unforgettable is the annual migration which takes place between August and September each year. This event has marked the Earth’s calendar for the past two million years when one and a half million animals journey between the dry plains of Tanzania to the lush grasslands of Kenya.
Named after Mount Kenya, the country’s highest mountain, the second highest in Africa after Kilimanjaro, the country is home to Mount Kenya National Park, a protected 276 square mile area around the center of the mountain and just one of Kenya’s a UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Alpine species unique to this region include giant lobelias, senecios and rock hyrax, and other native residents include the semi-nomadic tribe, the Maasai. Maintaining much of their ancestors’ lifestyle, their livelihood is centered around their cattle, although a welcoming visit to their villages will reveal their increasing move towards farming.
