Kenya Travel Tips


Kenya is a great vacation destination.  It has a rich history of migration over the centuries from the north and south that have led to Kenya becoming one of the most diverse African countries culturally and linguistically. Separating Kenya's interior or upcountry from Indian ocean, the arid Maungu plains form a barrier which accounts in large part for the separate history and culture of the coast of Kenya including the ruins of several ancient towns cut from coast.


The Kenya coastal/beach vacation and major Kenya game parks are the most obvious vacation targets. The beyond white sandy beaches of Kenya, shaded by coconuts palms or Casuarina trees, run along an almost continuous coral reef protecting a shallow, safe lagoon from the Indian ocean. Kenya is also famous as the original safari country. Within Kenya there are over 40 national parks and wildlife reserves which have been set aside for the conservation of wildlife and natural habitat.
