Kenya: land of the iconic lone acacia tree silhouetted against the horizon and home to the world’s big game wildlife. Its parks are famous for bringing us pink swathes of flamingos and heart-warming families of elephants, and all against a backdrop of a huge sky and blazing sun. The land itself is just as stunning as the creatures on it. Kenya, and Africa on the whole, might conjure images of dry savannahs, but a tour here will show you glittering lakelands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley, mountain highlands and snow-capped Kilimanjaro.
Kenya’s parks are famous for supporting an enormous number of different birds and mammals. For the greatest variety, visitors should safari through Masai Mara, while Tsavo is the perfect spot to sight elephants. And although you might not think it, this part of Africa holds water worlds that support an incredible amount of life. Venture to Lake Nakuru for its flamingos; explore Lake Naivasha to reveal a great variety of birds and animals; and Kenya’s coastline, lapped by the Indian Ocean, is a beautiful, warm, palm-fringed and sandy wonderland.
