Overview

Kenya is the very essence of an African safari, with its archetypal savannah landscapes laden with wildlife. Its richly diverse geography and ecology straddle the equator, lapped by the warm Indian Ocean to the east, reaching the coast of Lake Victoria in the west. It also straddles time, with the Great Rift Valley running north to south, reaching back to the origins of man. The government of Kenya has gone into great trouble to protect its fine natural resources, and the country is home to a large number of national parks with an astonishing variety of wildlife
