Karibu (welcome) to Kenya! Feel the thrill of a wildlife safari in one of the most spectacular parts of the African continent. Here you will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy view animals and nature in some of Kenya’s most amazing locations. After spending a bit of time in the vibrant capital of Nairobi, head to the endless savanna plains of the Masai Mara. The Mara is the jewel of Kenya, where one can witness what is dubbed as the “Greatest Show on Earth”–the annual wildebeest migration. Spend time hiking at Hell’s Gate National Park, known for its spectacular scenery including towering cliffs, water-gouged gorges, stark rock towers, scrub clad volcanoes, and belching plumes of geothermal steam. Finally, under the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, see one of Africa’s largest elephant herds.
