Lying on the earth's equator, Kenya is bordered by Ethiopia to the North, South Sudan to the northwest, Somalia to the north-east, Uganda to the west, and Tanzania to the south, with its coastline flanked by the Indian Ocean. With Nairobi, the countries’ capital city there is a diverse ecological mix from the Great Rift Valley to the Savannah grasslands exhibiting a prolific range of wild animals.
The Maasai Mara, one of the world's most magnificent game reserves, is famous for the great migration when wildebeest, Thomson's gazelle, and zebra travel to and fro from the Serengeti National Park, during the months from July to October and lion, cheetah, and leopard in the months from December to February. Samburu also houses some rare animals that you must not miss.
If the grasslands interest you, then visit Amboseli when you can peek up at the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro - the highest mountain of Africa. UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, Lamu Old Town is Kenya's oldest continually inhabited settlement dating back to the 12th century. Do not miss Lake Nakuru - renowned for its thousands of pink flamingoes and Mount Kenya - the second largest mountain in Africa or enjoy the beautiful silver sand beaches lined with palm trees, enticing many travellers.
