Ten Reasons To Visit Kenya

Here are top ten reasons to visit the jewel in East Africa’s crown.

Kenya Game Drives

Kenya boasts the Masai Mara, Amboseli National Park, Tsavo East & West and Lake Nakuru National Park and the best way to explore them is via purpose-built four-wheel drive vehicles so travellers can get up to Africa’s Big Five game real close.
