Kenya is a beautiful and majestic country, positioned on the coast of East Africa facing the Indian Ocean. With a huge amount of national parks and nature reserves, majestic animals like lions, leopards and elephants are part of the natural habitat Kenya offers.
The backbone of Kenyan tourism lies between Lake Victoria and the Indian Ocean, where great transport allows you to see astonishing landscapes and the many different species of animals that roam. Accommodation is in plenty and fantastically located with plenty of options to suit the needs of any traveller. From luxury tent camps to lush hotel apartments and swimming pools, Kenya is a welcoming country brimming with excitement.
Many people start in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital which is a prominent social centre with lots of culture to absorb. Nairobi also has it’s own nature reserve within, home to Giraffes and zebras within the city, but the Kenyan coast is also a main attraction. With holiday resorts positioned around the Great Rift Valley, beautiful beach resorts can be found, which offer the perfect alternative to the adventures found inland. Wherever you are in Kenya you’ll find yourself in close proximity to a nature reserve so it really is a great place to find the balance between adventure and relaxation.
