Kenya is undoubtedly one of Africa’s finest Big Five safari destinations with more than 20 national parks and national game reserves. Best known is the incomparable Masai Mara, hosting the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle, when hundreds of thousands wildebeest stream across the Mara River from neighbouring Tanzania.

One of Africa’s most developed countries it ranks also among the most visibly traditional of African nations – pastoralists such as the Masai, Samburu and Turkana tribes are still living their culture. Kenya enjoys a tropical climate. The coastal area is warm and humid, the central highlands are temperate, and it is both hot and dry in Kenya’s north and northeast regions. Rainfall in Kenya is seasonal with most rain falling between the months of April and June and shorter rainfalls occurring between October and December.
