On the east coast of Africa, Kenya straddles the equator and its shores are touched by the warm Indian Ocean. Kenya is one of the world’s foremost wildlife destinations and is known for the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra which are followed by the large predators. Its landscapes are varied and spectacular with Savannah’s, snow-capped mountains, forests, emerald green valleys, and in the beautiful Great Rift Valley lakes fringed by brightly colored flamingos.

Along the coast, Kenya’s lovely tropical beaches are served by an assortment of hotels and resorts. Here you can dive or snorkel in colorful coral gardens filled with tropical fish, take a camel ride along the palm-lined beaches, try your hand at fishing or sail along the coast in a canoe hand carved from a tree stump.


Kenya’s coastline boasts Portuguese forts and ancient Arab buildings. The cities still carry reminders of the colonial rule of the British in the architecture, golf courses and the language, English, which is spoken by most Kenyans.
