Kenya is truly a land of contrasts. From the snow-covered peaks of Mount Kenya astride the equator and the second highest mountain in Africa, to the warm sun-kissed beaches, the scenery embraces mountains, forests, deserts and lakes, plus a staggering diversity of wildlife most visitors are attracted to the country's coast, followed by its wonderful wildlife areas.
Kenya's wildlife heritage remains its prime attraction. From the Serengeti in Tanzania, to Kenya's Masai Mara and back is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to witness. The great wildebeest migration across the plains of East Africa, from the Serengeti occurs between June and September with millions of animals taking part in this awesome display of nature.
The best known areas are Masai Mara National Reserve, famous for its abundance of game and its many predators and Amboseli National Park has the best view of the snow-covered Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
