Location + Itinerary
Kenya is the Africa you always dreamed of. This is a land of vast savannahs, immense herds of wildlife and peoples with proud traditions on the soil where the human race was born. The Modern day Kenya is a complex place, one about which it seems easy to eulogize one minute and despair the next.
Kenya lies across the equator in east-central Africa, on the coast of the Indian Ocean. It borders Somalia to the east, Ethiopia to the north, Tanzania to the south, Uganda to the west, and Sudan to the northwest. In the north, the land is arid; the southwest corner is in the fertile Lake Victoria Basin, and a length of the eastern depression of the Great Rift Valley separates western highlands from those that rise from the lowland coastal strip.
Amazing geographical features of Kenya include Volcanic Crater Kerio, Great Rift Valley, and natural lakes such as Lake Victoria, Lake Magadi, and rivers such as Tsavo, Athi, mountains like Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Kiringa, and Mt. Kenya. Kenya’s warmth and hospitality are expressed by the national motto; Harambee, meaning “let’s all pull together”. Kenya is dubbed the 8th Wonder of the World and is undoubtedly the most amazing, bizarre and memorable place to be
