"All of Africa in One"

It is the land that inspired Karen Blixen to write "Out of Africa." Since the end of the 19th century the country has been the firm favorite for British travellers to Africa. Today the country is just as popular with tourist from all over the world. But while game viewing remains high on the list of tourists ’ priorities, it is far from being Kenya ’s only asset.

 

The Kenyan people are amongst the friendliest in the world. Smiles greet the tourist everywhere, while the traditional greeting, "Jambo na Karibu," means "hello and welcome." The country is blessed with 400 miles of tropical beaches and coral reefs, providing the perfect sun, sand and safari combination.

 

There are plenty of activities to be enjoyed from a balloon trip over the Maasai Mara plains to scuba diving, as well as a variety of scenery, from semi-desert and savannah to the snow-capped Mount Kenya. The country is well served by its network of roads and air services and boasts an impressive range of high standard accommodations from international hotels, game lodges, luxurious tented camps, five star beach hotels to self-catering chalets.

 

On the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya ’s capital, is Karen Blixen ’s house, which has been restored to its original style and is now a museum. After experiencing the many different aspects of Kenya, visitors may well discover just why Karen Blixen fell in love with the place.
