Few places provide the extraordinary opportunity to view wildlife in its natural habitat. East Africa’s reputation as the quintessential safari destination is well deserved. This is a region of dramatic contrasts and extraordinary wildlife on display in uncrowded landscapes of great beauty and variety. Kenya offers a wide range of travel choices; from scenic tours, cultural safaris, beach and adventure travel.
The very word safari was invented in Kenya where in Kiswahili it means “journey.” The boundless wilderness and big game of this region has long attracted adventure seekers from all over the globe. Few countries even come close to range of landscapes, unique geographical features and species you’ll find in Kenya.
Kenya offers you a chance to experience a natural world unchanged by the passage of time. The Kenyan wilderness is home to an endless array of ecosystems, the staging ground for natural cycles of life, death and regeneration as old as the planet itself.
This great range of natural habitats means that there is plenty to explore, and plenty of species to encounter. Kenya is a land of endless potential for the wildlife enthusiast. From great migratory herds of the open savannah to an incredible abundance of birdlife, from the depths of a tropical rainforest to the depths of the Indian Ocean teeming with fish, this a world of natural wonders. A safari into the wilds of Kenya is a journey into nature at its purest. Everywhere you look there is a profusion of life.
Kenya has 59 national parks and game reserves including the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle, the annual wildebeest migration to the Maasai Mara.
In Kenya you’ll find more than 42 unique cultures, many in villages unchanged by the modern world.
Kenya provides ecotourism opportunities to learn about endangered wildlife such as the black rhino, sea turtle, Grevy’s zebra, sitatunga, wild dog and Colombus monkey.
Did you know that Kenya has a 300-mile Indian Ocean coastline of pristine beaches, warm, turquoise waters and protective coral reefs?
All this can be taken in by trekking or on a camelback or horseback, perhaps a hot air balloon, a boat or biking up a mountain.
