The words Kenya and safari go hand in hand. You can’t speak of one without mentioning the other. It’s easy to see why, of course – the country is home to 19 national parks, which span landscapes like the Great Rift Valley and the Kilimanjaro mountain range.
Tsavo and Masai Mara
Kenya’s most famous game reserves are Tsavo East, Tsavo West and Masai Mara. Red elephants cavalcade through Tsavo East, black rhinos eyeball each other on Tsavo East, and Masai warriors pogo jump their way through ceremonial dances in Masai Mara.
Safaris aside, there’s another face to Kenya. The country’s coastline gives the Caribbean a run for its money. In Diani Beach, Bamburi and Kilifi, white-sand beaches are skewered with palm trees, and the hotels that cosy up to the sand come with infinity pools and luxury lodge-style accommodation.
