Kenya

Capturing the essence of the African continent, Kenya is that chameleonic, wild and beautiful land where man lives in communion with nature and time seems to stand still.

With herds of animals roaming free and people still living in fascinating traditional communities, Kenya is definitely a country that makes this world a more colourful place.
Landscapes vary from savannah grasslands to temperate and forested hilly areas, snow-capped equatorial mountains and even the world's largest tropical freshwater lake, which justifies the abundance of flora and fauna. Among the most spectacular things you will witness here you should count the "big five" game animals of Africa, the lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros, and elephant, as well as other wild animals, reptiles and birds. A fascinating world with mysteries beyond your imagination.

Incredibly diverse in terms of climate and relief, similar to those zoology albums we used to have when we were kids, with exciting animals on every page, this African destination is a natural paradise, with wonders at every step. Zebras, rhinos, elephants, lions, giraffes and countless other species cohabit the vast fields of Kenya, delighting tourists in their safari adventures. Among top destinations we should include the Maasai Mara, Kenya's most popular game park famous for the annual wildebeest migration, Mount Kenya, a great adventure for trekking lovers, Lake Nakuru National Park, a pink paradise filled with flamingos, Kakamega Forest, the only rainforest in Kenya and the list could go on forever.

There is no need to worry for that "awkward silence" moment when in Kenya, as nature never sleeps. If the giggle-like chirps of the Green Wood Hoopoe will bring a smile to your face and the crickets will annoy you, the loud roar of the lions or the jackals howling will surely bring chills down your spine. Other than wild animal sounds, Kenyan folk music has a special charm, with a dominant role given to the guitar rhythm.

Kenya smells like the wonderful aroma of maize roasted by the side of the road, dusty grass and woodsmoke, dry land washed by rain, various scented shrubs and bushes, fragrant roses, the refreshing aroma of coriander and the nutty smell of cardamom.

Many things can be said about the Kenyan cuisine, but the highlight of it is its flavoursome taste and high nutritional value. Using native spices and local ingredients, this East African cuisine is particularly healthy, reflecting the ethnic heritage of the inhabitants. They love their beans, such as maharagwe, their maize flour bread substitute that accompanies most meals, called ugali, matoke, made of delicious smashed bananas and sauce and similar other delicacies, common treats that any traveller should try.
