Kenya

Kenya

Kenya is the country many people automatically associate with African safaris - the alluring landscapes, teeming wildlife and its people have been immortalized and romanticized in movies and books ever since the first Europeans set foot there. Kenya prides itself on a rich conservation history and wildlife reserves which often work directly to benefit the surrounding communities.

The fertile slopes of the central Highlands were recognised by European settlers as being great farming country for tea, coffee, wheat and flowers. Many came and took the land with the colonial government's blessing. There was little regard for tribal land or local customs and this created great resentment, which erupted into the bloody Mau Mau Rebellion of the 1950's.

The image of elephants wandering across grass plains with the snowy peak of Mt Kilimanjaro in the background is one known even to armchair travellers. This epitomises Amboseli National Park and highlights the stark contrasts Africa has to offer.

Kenya has a stunning coastline with strategically positioned ports for ocean trading. It is because of this reason that it became more Arabic than African.

The eastern escarpment of the Rift Valley known as the Laikipia Plateau, is divided into a patchwork of enormous ranches. Over the years with cooperation from their owners, these farms were transformed into game reserves and now contain some of the most exclusive lodges in the remotest parts of Kenya.

A trip to Lake Victoria is often added onto a Masai Mara safari, and an excursion into Ruma National Park is an option.
