Kenya is the quintessential African experience with majestic jungle animals, blissful tropical climate and a vibrant local culture.

Kenya’s sights are some of the greatest Africa has to offer. The Aberdare National Park is just one of countless reserves offering stunning safaris. Spot black-maned lions, elephants and giraffes as you drive through their homeland. Lake Nakuru, another natural hotspot, gets so filled with flamingos that it becomes a pink sea, and the peak of the Menengai Crater reveals an astounding panorama. At the end of the day, Kenya’s curious locals welcome you with their beautiful dress and distinctive dance.
