Kenya sits halfway down the East Coast of Africa, astride the equator. It is the most accessible country in the region. Kenya is the home of safari and one of the world’s top holiday destinations. Kenya’s appealing world of attractions ranges from stunning landscapes, cultural diversity, adventure sports, beautiful beaches to unique wildlife. It is fascinating from the sheer diversity of its many game parks. One of the greatest sights is the annual migration of two million wildebeests – together with half a million zebras and thousands of gazelles across the endless savannah. Kenya boasts as the only country in the world with a national park in the capital.
Home of the well-known Masai Mara, which together with its sister reserve in Tanzania (the Serengeti) is the location for the annual wildebeest and zebra migration. The Mara is also the location for the popular BBC Series, Big Cat Diary. The Mara is fringed with conservancies’ areas in which wildlife and domestic life and animals seek to cohabitate.
Of course there are reserves and National Parks other than the Mara, such as Amboseli at the foot of Kilimanjaro. There are also other places to visit such as Lake Nakuru.
Even Nairobi has its attractions such as the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Karen Blixen Museum and Giraffe Manor.
