Kenya lies across the equator with vast savannah grasslands which are home to big game. Kenya also boasts of snow capped mountains and pristine beaches along the Indian ocean. A definitive feature is the great western rift valley which cuts across the country.
Kenya is dotted with conservation areas including Amboseli, Nakuru, Tsavo and the Masai Mara which plays host to the phenomenal spectacle of the great migration remains the top attraction. The great migration sees over 1.5 million wildebeest and thousands of zebra,gazelles traverse a continuous circular 500 mile route from Masai Mara to Serengeti as the great herd follows the rains.
November to February is a calving season so the plains are littered with newborn calves making it a feasting season for the big cats.
July to September remains the best time to see the herd moving in the Mara. The herds leave the plains of the Serengeti and cross into the Masai Mara in vast numbers. This is the time for river crossings where the drama of the big crocodiles eating to their brim full as they take full advantage of the plentiful herds crossing their river territory.
The diversity of the people of Kenya makes Kenya a melting pot of African cultures. The Arab influenced Swahili culture of the Indian ocean coast meets Bantu and nilotic culture creating unique infusions and foods.
