KenyaKenya is arguably one of the best places for safari. The country is evocative of a romantic and pioneering age. Kenya holds a special place in the hearts of Africa-lovers. In the Maasai Mara, part of the greater Serengeti ecosystem, huge herds of wildebeest graze on the sweeping plains on their annual migration. Throughout the country there are high concentrations of "big five" game, in which Kenya has some of the highest numbers in Africa. North and east of the Mara, the Great Rift Valley cuts a swathe through the middle of the country and this is one of the best places to witness the sheer scale of this natural wonder. From Lake Victoria to the Central Highlands via numerous beautiful reserves, Kenya is home to many diverse ecosystems and, after the thrill of safari, you can head for the Indian Ocean coastline to relax on miles of white sand beaches or explore the historic island of Lamu.
