Everything from cheap flights to the country, safari tours, beaches, car hire, the best place to stay when on your holiday, and some background information like the people, food, climate, history, music etc.
Safari and Beach
Kenya is renowned as the heart of the African safari. This is entirely true and when on your visit to the country you will find yourself enchanted by its scenic beauty and vast wildlife e.g., lions, elephants, rhinos, buffaloes, wildebeests, zebras, elands, hyenas, baboons, gazelles, giraffes, leopards, cheetahs, hippos, crocodiles and over 1,070 species of birds.
If you are a beach lover you will be able to enjoy pristine white-sandy beaches at the coast. The beaches stretch 536 kilometers and they are lined with whistling palm trees. The year-round sunshine and the cooling breeze from the Indian Ocean make them an ideal place to sunbathe, swim, windsurf, sail, snorkel etc.
Mombasa, the second largest city after Nairobi (the capital city), has a rich cultural heritage to explore. Swim with dolphins in Malindi and slow down the pace in Lamu, a tropical island where life is lived at its own relaxed rhythm.
When you mention Kenya you can’t fail to mention the great wildebeest migration, which is the seventh natural wonder of the world. The spectacle takes place every year between July and October as hundreds of thousands of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles trek from the Serengeti plains through the Masai Mara National Reserve and back again. Lions, hyenas and vultures closely follow the trek.
The national parks and reserves are unrivaled and this is where the safaris take place. You can take a wildlife drive, a balloon safari, or a camping safari for the real bush experience.
The county’s tourism industry is well established and you get the best accommodation and vacation packages to suit your particulars needs. Tour packages range from budget to luxury safaris, with the convenience of being able to customize your safari.
