Kenya - where Wilderness Exceeds every Expectation
If I had to name a place that promises breathtaking holidays in Africa, it would be Kenya, for, it is a land of diversity and beauty! No other place on Earth can beat the sound of millions of wildebeest, the spectacular view of zebra hooves thundering across open savannah plains or the tranquil white sand beaches of Diani, Galu, Malindi and Watamu that delights you with a sight of palm trees swaying in gentle ocean breezes like Kenya! Unimaginable is the Kenya safari experience which depicts an optimum balance between human-use and wildlife preservation.
Contrasting this setting is the relaxed and rejuvenating scenery of the pristine stretches of beaches edged by the azure blue waters of the warm Indian Ocean along the Kenyan coastline! You can spend leisurely time wandering here or venture out into the water for scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, deep sea fishing and much more. Besides knowing the traditions, artwork and beliefs of the seaside towns, this county also intrigues you in historical sites such as Gede Ruins or Fort Jesus (demonstrating the longstanding history of both indigenous and international visitors that have contributed to the land of Kenya). You also stumble across the paleoanthropological site, Koobi Fora near Lake Turkana, popularly known as the ‘Cradle of Mankind’ while exploring Kenya!
