The Kenya Wildlife Service and Kenya Association of Tour Operators, in conjunction, invite you to sample this Online Travel Guide to Kenya. We hope the information will help you to plan your trip to this fascinating country, often described as the "land of contrasts" and as "all of Africa in one country".

This website is complete with maps, information on parks and resorts, hotels and tour operators - everything you would ever want or need to know about Kenya as a tourist destination - offers you an opportunity to explore the country within whose borders lies a world in microcosm, containing almost every known landform, from glacial ice to arid desert, mountain masiffs to rich savannahs, lakes and dense forests.

Covering some 583,000 sq. km, bisected by the equator, inhabited by 48 different ethnic groups, and populated by some of the most numerous and varried wildlife species in the world, this "land of spectacular contrast" is also the "Craddle of Mankind". From the pre-historic splendour of the Rift Valley to the beautiful beaches of the Indian Ocean, from the cultural hub of Nairobi to the game parks of Tsavo and the Masai Mara, this vast country is a traveller's haven. In Hemingway's words, "Unknowable, unimaginable, unbelievable. And completely unforgettable."

In western Kenya, Lakes Naivasha and Nakuru, are a perfect one-day trip from Nairobi. The hundreds of thousands of flamingos are worth viewing. Lake Bogoria features hot springs, the sight of fishermen in papyrus boats and the rare Greater Kudu. Nakuru boasts the rare Rothschild Giraffe and an extraordinary rhino sanctuary. While Naivasha is best seen by boat, further west is Lake Victoria, the source of the Nile, and the Afro-Alpine flora of Mt. Elgon National Reserve, both reached through the immense pre-historic landscape of the Rift Valley. Kenya Safaris and travel as well as Kenya safaris guide will give you detailed Kenyan information

The world famous Maasai Mara, offers the classic safari. From July to September, the Mara provides one of nature's most dramatic spectacles, the annual migration of more than a million wildebeest and zebras, from the south across the Mara River into the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The reserve is home to cheetahs, lions, antelopes, hippos and crocodiles, among others.

The snow-capped Mt. Kenya, Africa's second highest mountain, is a stunning and challenging destination for climbers and trekkers. Below the mountain's alpine meadows roam elephants, black rhinos, cape buffalos and antelopes. The Aberdares boast high alpine moorland and primeval aloe forest. The leopard is common in this region.

In the Amboseli, ever present is the remarkable view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The park hosts a variety of wildlife. Hemmingway wrote of it as the essence of Africa. Elephants rummage in the lower forests, leopards prowl the salt flats, and antelopes graze in the open, all against Mt. Kilimanjaro's majestic peak - a glimpse of the classic image of Africa.

The semi-arid northern Kenya is framed by volcanic mountain ranges and dotted with unique lakes. Throughout the region, rare animals abound; the Reticulated Giraffe, Beisa Oryx, Grevy's Zebra, and the long-necked Gerenuk.

Tsavo East and Tsavo West national parks, situated halfway between Nairobi and Mombasa - making it ideal for those wanting to include both safari and beach tourism on their intinerary - are model parks in geographic, plant, and animal diversity. In the evening "Tsavo Sunsets" span the sky filling the horizon with incredible colour.

The colourful palm-fringed coral coast is a playground of holiday fun seekers. A variety of activities make it unique. Numerous water sports are available along the entire Coast. A spectacular coral reef, running almost uninterrupted for 480 km, teems with wonders of marine life, lagoons, creeks and overwhelming birdlife in mangroove forests or on overhanging cliffs. A holiday at the coast is not complete without a visit to the national monuments and museums which house relics of swahili civilisation. These attractions make the Coast more than just sun, sand and surf.

Kenya is an all year destination. The International Travel Agents voted Kenya the best destination in Africa, because it has a lot to offer, making it every holiday-goer's dream destination.
 
East Africa travel destinations that we include in our catalogue include Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda. East Africa is home to the safari, since this is where the African savannah is at its best and the plains are filled with wildlife. Hikers also come to East Africa to enjoy the mountains, including Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), Mount Kenya, Mount Longonot and Mount Meru. The East African coastline has some of the best beaches in the world, including the famous spice island of Zanzibar.
 
Kenya Safari:
Kenya is the original safari country where the 'safari' (Swahili for travel) begun. In Kenya, you can mix the idyllic experience of a tropical beach vacation on the warm Indian Ocean with an East African wild animal safari expedition. Combining the two makes for a unique holiday. Part of your vacation is filled with excitement as you observe African wildlife at close quarters, while part is spent relaxing and soaking up the sun on a sandy beach.

A beach and safari break in Kenya is an exotic getaway from the daily routines of city life. It also makes for the ideal honeymoon for newly weds, with time to relax as well as a touch of adventure.

East Africa, including Kenya, does not yet have a high profile as a holiday destination in America, but is growing in reputation as a unique vacation experience. Europeans, and the British in particular, have less distance to travel to Africa, and have been been the mainstay of Kenyan tourism, attracted by the unique mix of the tropical beach and African safari vacation. Luxury vacations have become more affordable as European currencies have strengthened, prompting investment in Kenyan tourist facilities.
 
Tanzania Safari:
Safari in Tanzania is a worth undertaking. We are the original safari company offering quality Tanzania safaris to Ngorongoro Crater, animal migration tours in Serengeti, Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzania  honeymoon vacations in Zanzibar Island, family holidays in spice island and luxury beach resorts of pemba island. A variety of accommodation in Tanzania is offered from lodge, hotels and safari tented camps...Read more.
 
The best time to go for an African safari is when the animals are easy to find and in dense numbers. Deciding when to go on safari depends on what country you would like to visit and when you are able to plan your trip. Seasons differ in East Africa so you can really plan a great safari for almost every month of the year, if you are flexible about where you want to go to.....:
 
Kenya:
The best time to go on safari in Kenya and experience a huge density and diversity of wildlife is when the annual migration of millions of wildebeest, zebra and gnu's descend on the Mara plains with predators close behind. The best time to see this wildlife spectacle is from July to October. Other parks in Kenya are also excellent and the best time to visit these would be during the dry seasons - January through March and July through October.

With the scarcity of water during the dry seasons, the animals tend to gather in more concentrated numbers around permanent water holes, rivers and lakes, so they are easier to find. The vegetation is also less lush which simply means that viewing animals from a distance is easier.

Tanzania:
If you want to see the Great Migration unfold, head to Tanzania's northern parks; the Serengeti and Ngorongoro. The best time to witness the annual migration is probably February - March when the wildebeest and zebra have their young. Not only can you enjoy seeing baby animals, but the predators are at the highest number too. Because the herds also concentrate in the south of the Serengeti, it's easy to plan your wildlife viewing in that area and find a safari company that offers lodging there.

June to November is Tanzania's dry season and is the best time to visit all the parks (and you can always hop over to Kenya's Masai Mara to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration during this time). Tanzania's Southern Parks are perfect to visit during this time since the animals tend to congregate around permanent water and it isn't so hot and humid.

All of Tanzania's parks suffer from the rains which generally fall from March to May in the North, and from November to May in the South and West. Roads get washed out and given the sheer size of Tanzania's parks, the animals tend to spread out, and this makes wildlife viewing less satisfying (if you're looking for sheer numbers of animals).

December through March can get quite hot and humid, especially in Western and Southern Tanzania which makes it a little uncomfortable to spend a lot of time in the bush.

If you want to add a hike up Mount Kilimanjaro to your safari, the best time to hike is January - March and September - October.

Masai Mara - Serengeti wildebeest migration:
Wildebeest migration to and back from Serengeti into the Maasai Mara is the single most popular wildlife spectacle in Kenya. The wildebeest migration is such a phenomenon it involves movement of over 1 million animals crossing plains and rivers in the Mara migration. River crossings are the most spectacular where the wildebeest of Mara jump into rivers full of crocodiles and surging currents. The wildebeest is feted as the clown of the Savannah. Also known as a gnu, the animal has a structure resembling a young horse with a heavily built frontal shoulders and chest and a slender posterior. Its legs are so slender it’s intriguing how it supports the proportionately larger body frame. The ‘clown’ title results from its unusual behavior considered to other bovids, for example a gnu herd will usually scatter in different directions when attacked by a lion.
 
 
Lamu Town began life as a 14th century Swahili settlement. But the island has seen many visitors and influences, including Portuguese explorers, Turkish traders and the Omani Arabs. Despite all these influences, Lamu developed its own particular culture which has ultimately endured. The island is a beautiful place of rolling dunes and endless beaches, where tiny villages nestle among coconut and mango plantations and lateen sailed dhows ply the waters. Dense mangrove forests fringe the mainland and the inland sides of the island. The beach on Lamu Island is 12km of empty sands backing on to an ocean protected by a reef...Read more..
 
 
Mount Kenya: Mount Kenya National Park
Mount Kenya plays a crucial role in the life of the country being Kenya's single most important permanent watershed and her largest forest reserve. The fertile soils of its lower slopes also sustain the growth of the nation's richest farmlands whilst much of its vegetation is globally unique. In recent years, however, the Mountain has suffered greatly from the adverse effects of deforestation, resulting in large tracts of its lower slopes being entirely denuded of trees and occupied by squatters. And, although much of the vast forest cover remains intact, the growing demand for timber (Kenya's staple construction and fuel source) threatens to lead to even more serious deforestation and subsequent soil erosion.....Read more...Kenya safaris tour operator Masai Mara trip Kenya Tanzania wildlife tours Kenya offers, Kenya safaris tours information tour operators hotels park Mount Kilimanjaro Masai Mara Mount Kenya wildebeest migration Masai Mara Serengeti safaris Kenya Tanzania safari combined tours Kilimanjaro trip Kilimanjaro combined with Tanzania safari tour operators in Keya Tanzania safari operators travel agents Kenya and Tanzania trips.

Shaba National Reserve
It is impossible to talk about the Shaba National Reserve without mentioning Samburu National Reserve, and Buffalo Springs National Reserve, because they are all intertwined, and they form a trio of unusual and attractive game sanctuaries, and all neighbours.

Shaba is a relatively small National Park being a little over 239 sq. kms, and it is only 70 kms north of Mount Kenya, at an altitude varying between 700-1500metres.

Visitors go to Parks to see wildlife, and the Shaba Game is outstanding. You have a very good chance of seeing Giraffe, Cheetah, leopard, and lion. You can add to this gazelle, oryx, zebra, and Gerenuk, but of course it is the predators that are most sought after....Read more..Kenya safaris tour operator Masai Mara trip Kenya Tanzania wildlife tours Kenya offers, Kenya safaris tours information tour operators hotels park Mount Kilimanjaro Masai Mara Mount Kenya wildebeest migration Masai Mara Serengeti safaris Kenya Tanzania safari combined tours Kilimanjaro trip Kilimanjaro combined with Tanzania safari tour operators in Keya Tanzania safari operators travel agents Kenya and Tanzania trips.
