Kenya is popularly known as the land of Safaris. For over a hundred years Kenya has attracted adventurers and romantics from all over the globe. This has been the setting of some of history’s greatest adventure tales. This is a place where setting out on an adventure into the wilderness became an age old tradition, with the spirit of the Safari besieging all other interests today. The romance of evenings around a campfire and nights under canvas with the distant roar of a lion in the African night can still be found in Kenya. The lure of Kenya has always been the same, the sheer variety of landscape, wildlife, human cultures and experience. No other African country can boast such diversity within its borders. Here you will find snow capped peaks and rolling savannah, pristine beaches and tropical rain forest, nomadic tribesmen and dhow sailors, and much more.
