Kenya is the birthplace of the safari, which literally means ‘journey’ in Swahili. The land of sweeping savannah grasslands and the setting for the Danish writer Karen Blixen’s ‘Out of Africa’ – travel in Kenya evokes feelings of exploration and adventure; wildlife galore and sunsets to die for.
The ‘Big 5’; Lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo apart Giraffes, zebras, rhinos, cheetahs – in fact all the animals that we are so familiar with from nature documentaries are here. What’s more, there is the Great Rift Valley with its alkaline lakes and flamingos, spectacular Mount Kenya and a host of other wildlife packed game reserves.
