Kenya is on of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the world. Within its borders are astounding and incredibly dramatic variations of altitude and terrain. And then there is the wildlife – millions of animals living in their natural habitats in and around over 40 national parks and reserves countrywide.
Certainly, few visitors return home without sighting and photographing the Big five – elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard. Gazing up at Kilimanjaro’s serene sun kissed snow-cap from a game lodge in Amboseli is memorable.
But then so is sighting that very first lion or elephant, or ballooning over the lush Maasai Mara Game Reserve – enjoying the breathtaking view of the Great Rift Valley, excitingly strewn with lakes and extinct volcanoes.
On the more practical side, whatever your idea of a holiday, be it an all action safari or just relaxing on golden beaches, you can be sure of friendly and first class service in Kenya. Kenya’s hotels and game lodges are recognized internationally as among the best in the world.
Ranking high on the list of favourites are the unique Tree Hotels on the foothills of magnificent Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Range. They provide floodlit water holes that attract a procession of wild game by day and night, whilst visitors bask in luxurious comfort above.
All the game lodges are luxurious and so are the hotels in both Nairobi and Mombasa, boasting 5 – star accommodation. Although many tours start from Mombasa, Nairobi is generally regarded as the place to begin and end a visit to Kenya. This cosmopolitan capital offers visitors all the shopping, sports and entertainment facilities they could possibly require.
Mombasa, Kenya’s very attractive main coastal town has glorious palm-fringed coastlines with beautiful beach resorts. The beaches are famous for their lagoons, coral reef & marine national parks. Safaris all over the country, into Tanzania and Uganda, and other parts of Africa are quickly and conveniently arranged from both Nairobi and Mombasa – as are return international flights or connections abroad.
