KENYA – Land of diverse cultures and the big five
No other country on earth can offer the visitor as much to see and do. Within the borders of a single country, you will find savannahs rich with big game, timeless cultures unchanged by the modern world, pristine beaches and coral reef, equatorial forests and mighty snow-capped mountains, searing deserts and cool highland retreats and endless opportunities for adventure, discovery, relaxation; more than you would ever expect Kenya was immortalized as the home of the safari by legendary personalities such as Ernest Hemingway and Karen Blixen.
The classic movie, Out of Africa, was filmed in Kenya and it perfectly portrayed the romance, thrill and excitement of the country.
