About Kenya

Kenya has something for any traveller. There are many different landscapes and cultures, all quite different and beautiful. There is the desert of the north, and The Rift Valley where evidence of protohumans was first found. There are many brilliant Lakes , including Lake Victoria in western Kenya, Lake Naivasha and many more. Kenya has the second highest peak in Africa, the great Mt. Kenya . It has twenty National Parks and Reserves packed full of the exlusive “Big Five” (Elephant, Leopard, Lion, Cape Buffalo, and Rhinoceros).

Of course, there is also The Coast , very picturesque, with white sands, emerald water, and the Swahili culture, a unique mix of Arabic and Bantu influences.

The northwestern region of this country, the Turkana District, is a vast, desolate, hot, arid landscape where goatherders and bandits coexist. Lodwar, comparable to the "Dodge City" of the early American West, has the basic necessities of life, including Internet kiosks and semi-reliable electricity. Lokichoggio, the outpost in the northeasternmost sector of this county, is home to UN refugee camps with 30,000+ people. Roads are extremely rough, the terrain unforgiving, and people always inquisitive about what brings you to their country.

The best places to start your travels in Kenya are probably Nairobi N.P. the capital and South of Mombasa the second largest city, located on the coast. Both are served by international flights and have a very good tourist infrastructure.

Maasai Mara National Game Reserve is connected with Serengeti N.P. in Tanzania. The park is very accomodating to tourists, and offers many opportunities to see true African wildlife. The Maasai Mara Sopa Lodge is a true romantic complex overlooking the savannah and offering world class accomodations for the weary traveler.
