When you think of Africa, most likely you're thinking of Kenya. This is where the safari was born with the grand expeditions of Roosevelt, Hemingway, and Karen Blixen. Kenya is the quintessential safari destination where you'll experience all the classic images of Africa.
Kenya is the land of vast plains brimming with wildlife. Enormous herds of wildebeest, prides of lions, and elephants roam the Masai Mara. Rare species such as the gerenuk and Rothchild's giraffe can be found in Samburu at the base of Mt. Kenya, a snow-capped peak towering over 17,000 feet. In Amboseli, families of elephants graze the marshes with Kilimanjaro looming in the background. Millions of pink flamingos can be seen breeding in the alkaline Lake Nakuru along with rhinos and buffalo. That's just the interior. The Swahili culture and beaches of the blue Indian Ocean make for a fantastic end to a classic Kenya safari.
Besides abundant wildlife and stunning landscapes, Kenya is home to colorful and diverse cultures. The Maasai, Samburu, Kikuyu and Swahili people add a new dimension to any Kenya safari. Chances are a visit with the traditional and modern Kenyan people will be the highlight of your safari.
