Kenya is a land of wide grassy plains peppered with umbrella-shaped tortillis trees and legendary game viewing. In Amboseli you can be assured of some of the best elephant viewing in the world, often against the dramatic backdrop of Kilimanjaro which rises nearly 6000 metres into the clouds and is the largest free-standing mountain on earth. The Masai Mara, which is part of the greater Serengeti, is one of the best game viewing areas in the world with large concentrations of lions, leopards and cheetah. More than 2 million wildebeest cross the Mara each year in their search for new grazing and this spectacle is one of the natural wonders of the world and a must-see experience for all nature lovers. Kenya's great lakes, fascinating people, and its stunning Swahili Coast with it's azure ocean, dhows and Moorish architecture, make this a fascinating country to visit.
