Kenya is the 'Land of the Lion King' and sits at the center of the African safari experience with an outstanding variety of wild animals and "Big Five" viewing opportunities. Although safaris are its greatest attraction, it is a country of great diversity with much more to offer than splendid wildlife.
Essentially, it is a place for outdoor living. The coast offers beaches and water-based activities, the mountains present a challenge to hikers and climbers, and the rolling savannah is a paradise for game-viewers. The country sits astride the equator and offers fabulous scenery and a variety of tribal cultures. From its central location, the sacred peaks of Mount Kenya reign over a landscape primarily covered by grasslands and thorn trees, much of it enclosed within its many parks and reserves.
To the west, the spectacular Great Rift Valley is sprinkled with lakes teeming with a variety of bird life, whose shores and surrounds are traversed by agricultural farmlands. To the east lies the promise of an idyllic beach holiday with the requisite white palm-fringed beaches and pristine coral reefs. Inhabiting the highlands and Rift Valley are two of the most well-known numerous tribal cultures, the Kikuyu farmers and the tall, red-clad Masai cattle herders. The coast is home to ancient Swahili civilizations and old port towns that are rich in a history of exotic spice trading and fighting.
Kenya has a sophisticated tourism infrastructure with two major cities controlling the majority of the tourism trade. Nairobi, the capital, is the safari and hiking hub, situated in the cool Central Highlands, while on the east coast the hot and humid trading port of Mombasa functions as the gateway to the resorts and pristine beaches of the area. Kenyan People are friendly and visitors can choose to do as little or as much as they like, and the combination of wildlife, together with its beaches and mountains, make Kenya a fantastic holiday destination.
Maasai Mara National Reserve is Kenya's most celebrated game park. It offers the possibility of seeing the "Big Five" and many other species of game. This is where the great wildebeest migration is a spectacle to behold for any visitor in Kenya, mainly in July and August of each year.
There is an optional balloon safari of 450 USD.
The major airports in Kenya are Moi International Airport (MBA) situated 6 miles (10 kilometers) northwest of Mombasa and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) situated 10 miles (16 kilometers) southeast of Nairobi.
