About KenyaAs one of East Africa's premier safari destinations, Kenya evokes powerful images of savannas filled with classic African animals from elephants and graceful gazelles to prides of lions, leopards, and even colorful tribal culture. It is a piece of the world that boasts geographic excellence, rich with beautiful African landmarks.
Wildlife safaris have been the mainstay of Kenya's tourism for decades. Several of its national parks, such as Tsavo National Park and Masai Mara, are among the best places in Africa to see lions, elephants, leopards and the famous wildebeest migration. Yet, what makes Kenya truly stand out aside from its wildlife attractions is its stunning landscapes: from Kakamega's rainforests to Indian Ocean beaches by way of Mt Kenya National Park; the rolling grasslands of the Masai Mara to searing deserts on the shores of the Jade Sea. Special appreciation must be given to The Rift Valley, home to Hell's Gate National Park, which cleaves a massive gash through it all.
Kenya offers other activities for outdoor enthusiasts including trekking the glacial ridges of Mt Kenya, ballooning over the Masai Mara, snorkeling at the Marine National Park in Malindi on the Indian Ocean coast, and much more. For travelers seeking an even more unique experience in Kenya, consider sharing breakfast with the giraffes at Giraffe Manor, visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi where orphaned baby elephants are housed, or dining inside a cave at Ali Barbour's Cave Restaurant in Diani.
There's certainly no shortage of entertaining experiences in Kenya. It's a special place that offers something for everyone!
