Kenya Travel Guide
Kenya is one of the most popular African travel destination, an outstanding choice if you’re looking for an adventurous African safari of a lifetime with an abundance of wildlife, including the Big Five. Kenya lies on the Equator and is located in East Africa. It takes its name from Mount Kenya which means God’s resting place. Kenya is officially known as The Republic of Kenya and is renowned for its magical wildlife safaris, savannah plains, lakes, and culture.
Kenya is home to maybe the most beautiful and magical wildlife reserve in all of Africa: the stunning Masai Mara National Reserve! It's famous for its vast savannah plains with iconic acacia trees and incredible African sunsets, perfect to experience a magical safari sundowner. The Mara is also home to the Great Migration.
Kenya has 24 National Parks, among which Tsavo National Parks, Amboseli National Park with the iconic backdrop of the snow-capped Kilimanjaro, and Lake Nakuru. Lake Nakuru is also one of the 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kenya. Together with Lake Bogoria and Lake Elementaita, it is part of the Kenya Lake System surrounded by the Great Rift Valley, renowned for its diverse populations of (partly threatened) birds, like pelicans and flamingos. The lands around the lakes include large populations of black rhinos, wild dogs, lions, cheetah, and Rothschild's giraffe.
Apart from these popular safari destinations, Kenya offers rich cultures like the Maasai culture and beautiful scenery.
