Kenya Safaris Tours

Kenya is some country rich in wildlife, culture, history, beauty and friendly, welcoming people. Kenya is geographically diverse, from snow-capped mountain peaks to extensive forests to wide-open plains. Key geographical attractions include the Great Rift Valley, which features extinct volcanoes and hot springs, and Kenya's coastline, complete with reefs and magnificent beaches. Combine all this with a well-developed tourist infrastructure of hotels, lodges, campsites and a variety of activities, and it’s no wonder Kenya is a popular tourist destination attracting millions of visitors each year.

Kenya controls more than 20 national parks and national game reserves, where visitors can view some of the country's most spectacular wildlife, including the "Big Five" animals. In fact, the "Big Five" are the central focus of the majority of safari tours and wildlife expeditions offered within the parks.

Kenya's most popular game park is the Masaai Mara, which borders the Serengeti plains in Tanzania. Between July and September, visitors can witness the remarkable annual wildebeest migration which takes place at the Mara. Kenya's many beaches along the Indian Ocean are the country's second biggest tourist attraction.

Visitors can enjoy clean beaches lined with palm trees and studded with luxury resorts, with coral reefs located just offshore. The City of Mombasa is the entry point to the coast, with beaches extending south to Malindi and north to Lamu Archipelago, a world heritage site. Kenya is one of the top agricultural producers in Africa thanks to the rich soil of the Kenyan highlands.

Coffee, tea, tobacco, cotton, pyrethrum, flowers, cashew nuts and sisal are Kenya's cash crops, with fruit, vegetables, beans, and cassava emerging as key crops for subsistence. Cattle, goats and sheep are also important agricultural products. Major export markets include Kenya's neighboring countries, as well as several European and Asian countries, and the United States.

Kenya has diverse attractions to offer to their visitors.  It is only a few countries around the world where one can relax on pristine sandy beaches and be able to see wildlife in all forms within a short distance.  Kenya has 60 National Parks and Reserves all with abundant wildlife.  The spectacular wildebeest migration that occurs every year in Kenya’s most visited Maasai Mara National Reserve is referred to as the 7th new wonder of the world.

The scenery of Kenya is unique, the Great Rift Valley and the snow-capped Mount Kenya, lying astride the equator, are breath-taking.  There are myriads of activities which visitors can enjoy including rock climbing, white water rafting, bird watching and adventure.  Kenya is also a land endowed with cultural diversity, pleasant weather all the year round and more importantly, hospitable people.

The diversity of Kenya’s tourism products further includes, ecotourism, sports and water based tourism, conference tourism and home stay tourism.  In the northern part of the country, we have the cradle of mankind from where we all originated, making Kenya a leader in heritage tourism.  Kenya is therefore the ultimate destination offering unparalleled variety of travel and holiday experiences.  As our visitors tell us, it is indeed a magical destination.

Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, is located along the border between Kenya and Tanzania. Breathtaking views of Kilimanjaro can be seen from Amboseli National Park. The second highest mountain - Mount Kenya - can be found at the country's center.

Kenya is blessed with a wide range of topographical features - from the low plains found along the coast, bisected by the Great Rift Valley, to the fertile plateau in the west. The Great Rift Valley is home to a number of lakes, arid and rugged landscapes, and volcanic landforms with areas of active hot springs and geothermal activity.
