Kenya offers every type of holiday imaginable. It is home to 48 national parks and 9 marine national parks and reserves that are home to a myriad of fish and breathtaking coral reefs. The exquisite coastline, stretching from Lamu to Mombasa, is a melody of stunning beaches along the turquoise Indian ocean, archaeological and historical treasures, and opulent holiday resorts.
The Great Rift Valley runs through the Equator and is home to eight stunning lakes and some of the most magnificent birdlife in Africa, including the picturesque pink flamingoes at Lake Nakuru. The Central Highlands spread like a lush mantle over three mountain ranges – Mount Kenya, the Aberdares and Mau.

“Going on Safari” in Kenya is one of the country’s most exciting and larger-than-life experiences. The Aberdare National Park is a fairytale place with dense forest, misty moors and alpine plants.
