Kenya as a safari Destination
Kenya is the ultimate safari destination, providing travelers with a window into the heart of Africa.
Located near the equator, our magic lies in the fact that our country encompasses astounding variety of landscapes and climates, flora and fauna, as well as communities and cultures.
In the 800 Kilometres between our fabled Indian Ocean coastline and Africa’s largest fresh water lake is a magic carpet ride of rapid transitions between baobab-speckled coastal lowlands, acacia-dotted grassy savannah and semi-arid plains, lush and picturesque highlands culminating in a snow-capped volcanic peak boasting rare Afro-alpine vegetation, the Great Rift Valley, and the Lake Victoria basin.
Going to the northern part of the county takes you to the Cradle of Mankind, Jade Sea and some pure desert escape, while proceeding south takes you through the Masai plains which comprise some of the world’s most diverse wildlife parks.
For your game drive, the annual wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara Game Reserve is a must see; every year beginning from July to August, the spectacular dubbed the 8th new wonder of the world is all for your to experience.
The Big Five, rare birds and animals, apes, insects and unique flora find a natural home within this space.
For birds’ lovers; a visit to Lake Nakuru National Park will open doors to several species of birds; the Lake is however famous for its greatest spectacle of earth-flamingoes whose vast number is often more than a million.
How about teeing off in one of the over 40 golf courses throughout the country say in the shadow of the second highest mountain in Africa-Mt. Kenya?
Imagine having a round of golf in the morning, and in the same afternoon, basking on one of our pristine and white sandy beaches in the coast?
You can also choose to have a round of golf in the morning then take a ride in a glass bottom boat, to marvel at nature in one of the richest marine parks you will ever see.
Swim with the dolphins and later in Search for sun and sand, Kenya offers you a tropical sunshine, blue skies and endless silver-white beaches backed by waving palms and tranquil lagoons.
Kenya is indeed magical and you will be spoilt for choice as you set to sample the magical experience.
