beyond the beaten path
Kenya is rightfully described as “All of Africa in One Country”, and it is exactly that. It is a fact that the country enjoys some of the world’s greatest environmental diversity, which makes it quite simply the best wildlife viewing destination in Africa. Nowhere better than in Kenya you can immerse yourself in the spectacle of the Big Game - that of predators and the preys ritually entwined in the cycle of life and death. Kenya straddles the Equator with geography ranging from snow capped Mt. Kenya, the second highest mountain in Africa, to lush tropical rainforest and golden sands at sea level. It is a land of contrasts and extremes: a country with an extraordinary variety of landscapes and locations, all of them striking in their own particular way. It also boasts 480 kilometres of Indian Ocean coastline and a coral fringe reef, home to a colourful plethora of marine life. Sailing, diving, snorkeling and swimming in these clear azure waters are experiences you will certainly never forget. Kenya has earned the epithet ‘the cradle of mankind’ for the discovery of archaeological evidence of the earliest origins of mankind. It is the tribal home to 40 different ethnic groups, many of which are still living exactly as their ancestors did thousands of years ago.
