The land that introduced the safari to the world. Where adventurous travelers from around the globe still come to catch a glimpse of Africa’s Big 5 — the lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and Cape buffalo. Where culture and tradition stand tall with the proud people of Kenya’s Maasai Mara. Their open plains and mountains stand in stark contrast to Nairobi, one of Africa’s largest and most important capitals — and one of the few where you can find preserves and a national park inside an urban metropolis. the country sits on the Indian Ocean, where the beaches of Mombasa and Lamu Island offer their temptations.
