mother and baby lions in Kenya

It could be argued that "safari" was born in Kenya, with the primal drama of lion, leopard, and cheetah hungrily following a sea of wildebeest so immense, at times it seems the earth itself is moving. The annual Great Migration, Africa's single most famous safari draw, occurs every September and October as animals travel between Tanzania's Serengeti and Kenya's Masai Mara Park reserve. The park takes its name from famous nomadic Masai people, who wander as freely across the Kenya–Tanzania border as their cattle. There is more to Kenya than safaris, though: from coral reefs and white-sand beaches to tea plantations (plus a tourism infrastructure that can get you to all of them) you're not likely to get bored.
