Just thought that this topic could be interesting for new visitors or all the others of us repeaters, who cannot wait to go back there soon again!
Here are our personal thoughts about what we love about Kenya:
Kenya is the land of endless African skies, stunning wildlife in the national parks, snow-covered peaks and Masai Mara`s amazing dry savannah plains teeming with wildebeests and lions. The dusty Ethiopian Highway leading to Samburu`s beautiful bushveld with its elusive leopards and other rare species and the fantastic panorama of mountains, rivers and acacia trees and little red desert roses, flowering after the rain in spring. The wild vastness of Tsavo with its red earth, large elephant herds and baobabs. Sparkling Great Rift Valley lakes with rich birdlife, rhinos and pink flamingos dotting the lakeshore in their thousands. Lonely deserts in the north to tropical lush rainforest in the south and then there is the coastline with its powder-white palm-fringed sandy beaches beside the turquoise Indian Ocean.
Colourful tribes, helpful and friendly people in traditional authentic villages, children standing at the roadside waving happily when you pass, seeing the joy in their eyes. There is everything from the bustling modern city life of Nairobi and Mombasa to the quiet countryside, the highlands around Mount Kenya with tea and fruit plantations covering the evergreen hills. All this is Kenya - land of contrasts - and we are so longing to go there soon again!
