For a country of its size, Kenya packs a lot in both geographically and culturally: snow-capped mountains, vast deserts, colourful tribal culture, white sandy beaches and coral reefs, and a huge array of national parks and reserves which offer some of the most plentiful, diverse and exciting wildlife experiences in the world. This is one of the best places in Africa to see lions, elephants, leopards and the famous wildebeest migration as well as being one of the top 5 bird watching destinations in the world.
Other activities for outdoor enthusiasts include hot air ballooning over the Masai Mara, snorkelling on the Indian Ocean coast, quad biking, camel trekking, scuba diving, scenic helicopter flights, fishing and much more.
Kenya is a rich melting pot of cultures and languages, made up of 40 ethnic groups all speaking a variety of mother tongues. Although the official languages are Swahili and English, there are a total of 62 languages and a plethora of cultures, traditions and lifestyles.
