Situated on the equator, the East African country of Kenya extends from the shores of Lake Victoria in the west, to the beautiful Indian Ocean coastline on the east.
Kenya is part of Africa’s Great Lakes region, and encompasses a diverse terrain of mountains such as Mount Kenya (Africa’s second highest mountain), forested hills, arid and semi-arid areas, expansive grassland and sandy beaches.
The country’s seven national parks include fantastic game viewing destinations such as the iconic Maasai Mara (which shares the wildebeest migration with the Serengeti) and the Amboseli National Park around Lake Amboseli (famed for its superb elephant viewing and views of Mount Kilimanjaro across the border in Tanzania). Kenya also gives one the opportunity to meet the fascinating people of the Maasai tribe.
The lesser-known Laikipia region is recognised as one of the country’s best safari areas, hosting around half of Kenya’s 600-strong black rhino population, several packs of African wild dogs, thousands of elephants and the beautiful Grevy’s zebra.
