What can we do while on tour in Kenya?
In Kenya you can enjoy some of the best safaris in the world, meet the Big 5 and witness one of the most important activities of their wild fauna: the great migration of antelopes and buffalo. You can also interact with one of its most famous tribes, the Maasai Mara, and visit its beaches.
Kenya is one of the most developed and wealthiest countries in Central and Southern Africa. Here you will meet the most famous tribe in Africa, the Maasai, a name that was also given to one of its most important national parks. Furthermore, there are more than 40 ethnic groups in Kenya. The official languages of Kenya are English and Swahili, but there are dozens of languages. Its culture is very diverse, due to its different ethnic groups and the influence of British colonization.
The main sources of income for this country are tourism, thanks to its great biodiversity and incredible landscapes; and its excellent coffee, although its inhabitants do not consume it and prefer to sell it outside the country.
Safaris in Kenya
Maasai Mara National Park is the most representative safari in Africa. Approximately 3,600 lions live here. In fact, the cartoonists of the blockbuster movie “The Lion King” from 1994 were inspired by this place. Here you can see the Great Migration, a time when zebras, wildebeests and antelopes desperately cross the Mara River. In this area you can also interact with the Maasai tribe.
The Tsawo National Park, located between Nairobi and Mombasa, is home to a large population of elephants and lions, making it the ideal place to go on a safari in search of these two large mammals. In addition, you can visit other national parks such as: the Samburu National Reserve, the Aberdares National Park, the Amboseli National Park and more.
Islands of Kenya
Lamu is an archipelago off the north-east coast of Kenya and has very calm beaches lapped by the Indian Ocean. Its inhabitants have Portuguese and Muslim influence. Lamu is the main island. The island has dunes and white sand beaches, where small towns of white houses, coconut, and mango plantations are found. One of the most popular animals are donkeys, which they use to transport goods.
Here you can also go on safaris, visiting the surrounding archipelagos, to see ancient ruins and luxurious resorts on the islands of Manda, Siyu, Pate, and Kiwayu. If you are looking for an exotic and relaxed experience, Lamu is the ideal place, because you will feel that time slows down, while you enjoy the beaches or the city.
