About Kenya

Safari by Land Rover in Kenya

Safari by Land Rover in KenyaWelcome to the ultimate safari destination in East Africa. Kenya is a country that lies astride the equator on the east coast of Africa and is bordered by Tanzania to the south, Uganda to the west, South Sudan to the northwest, Ethiopia to the north, and Somalia to the east. With breathtaking landscapes, abundant wildlife, and diverse cultures, Kenya offers a luxuriously rewarding travel experience that is hard to forget.

Kenya’s Tourism

At the heart of Kenya’s tourism industry is its world-renowned wildlife, which includes the famous “Big Five” – lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros, and buffalo. These animals can be found in Kenya’s numerous national parks, game reserves, and wildlife conservancies. Among Kenya’s most famous wildlife sanctuaries is the Masai Mara Game Reserve, home to the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle – the annual wildebeest migration. This natural event occurs between June and September each year, as over a million wildebeest and zebras migrate from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara in Kenya in search of greener pastures.

What about besides game viewing?

Apart from game viewing, Kenya offers a plethora of other exciting activities for tourists. For instance, hot air balloon safaris provide a unique perspective of the country’s breathtaking landscapes as you float over the vast savannah plains and forested slopes. Mountaineering is another popular activity, with Mount Kenya being the country’s highest mountain and second highest in Africa. The ascent to the top of Mount Kenya is a challenging but rewarding experience for the adventurous.

Scuba diving and snorkeling are also popular activities in Kenya’s coastal towns, such as Malindi and Watamu, where tourists can explore the colorful coral reefs and marine life of the Indian Ocean. Deep-sea fishing is another popular activity along the coast, with anglers targeting game fish such as marlin, sailfish, and tuna.
