Kenya Tours and Safaris
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. Africa's single most famous safari draw, the annual Great Migration 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 Maasai people, who wander as freely across the Kenya-Tanzania border as their cattle. There is more to Kenya than safari, 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.
