Kenya is one of Africa's most popular safari destinations. This is the land where the safari was born. The word itself is from the local Swahili, originally meaning simply "a journey". It was here that the first caravans snaked into the wilderness from the coast, bringing explorers, big game hunters and romantics from all over the world.
Their legacy was the legend of the Safari, which became known as the world's greatest adventure. Today this great spirit of adventure lives on in Kenya. This is a country of remarkable diversity. 48 National Parks and Reserves are spread over an incredible variety of landscapes, ranging from alpine slopes to baking desert, lush rainforest to sprawling savannah, fantastic coral reefs and idyllic beaches to beautiful freshwater lakes.
This diversity of habitat supports an incredible range of animal species. This is Africa's real garden of Eden, offering the visitor a glimpse of the natural world at its most unchanged and unchanging.
You'll find massive migratory herds of game, a dazzling array of bird life, and Africa's famed "big five" (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant).
