Kenya is a place to experience a safari vacation, the place where safari travel is originated from. The best tours and safaris in Kenya include Big 5 game viewing, natural beauty, cultural encounters (masai mara), and the tropical beaches of the Kenyan coast.

Encounter interesting cultures in authentic Maasai villages and taste the flavors of Africa, India and Europe in the melting pot that is Swahili culture.
The annual Great migration of mega-herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle-also following the summer rains and sweet grasses is Kenya's biggest attraction.
