Kenya lies in East Africa along the equator and its capital city, Nairobi, is the 2nd largest in Africa after Cairo. Magical Kenya as it is commonly referred to in the tourism industry is a land of intrigue, color and diversity.
Famous for its wildlife, athletes and hospitality, Kenya is one of the foremost tourism destinations in the world boasting 59 national parks and game reserves, each one unique with different wildlife and topography. Home to the original Safari, Kenya guarantees encounters with most, if not all, of the big five – lions, elephants, leopard, buffalo and rhino, and plays host to the world's 7th New Wonder of the World; the annual wildebeest migration that takes place in the Maasai Mara National Game Reserve between July and October.
Not only renowned for its grounded wildlife, Kenya is a bird watcher's paradise, with 30% of the world’s pink flamingoes calling Kenya home, and over 100 species of birds to be spotted in any one day. Supporting this tremendous abundance of life is Kenya's diverse landscape, ranging from semi-deserted plains to lush plantations, dense forests and tropical lowlands, to palm-fringed beaches, grassy savannahs and icy peaks. Similarly, Kenya is culturally rich and diverse with 42 different indigenous tribes, each offering their own unique experiences, and all offering the uniquely warm hospitality that Kenyan's are famous for.
Kenya's coastal regions not only offer pristine beaches and world-class diving and fishing pursuits, but are also steeped in history, with the coastal city of Lamu declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 2001.
Kenya provides excellent value for money experiences with accommodation choices to suit every budget and interest; from lying under the open skies and stars, to luxury cameo tent retreats, city hotels and beach resorts. Home to some of the best tea, coffee and cut flowers in the world, Kenya livens the senses!
