Kenya is a country in east africa with coastline on the indian ocean. It encompasses savannah, lakelands, the dramatic great rift valley and mountain highlands. It’s also home to wildlife like lions, cheetahs, elephants and rhinos. From nairobi, the capital, safaris visit the maasai mara reserve, known for its annual wildebeest migrations, and amboseli national park, offering views of tanzania’s 5,895m mt. Kilimanjaro. Its tribal culture has its roots in the great rift valley, the cradle of human civilization itself. And in nairobi, it has one of africa’s most bustling, up-and-coming cities. Those looking for a more laid-back trip will find azure waters and white sands near mombasa, where kenya meets the indian ocean.
