The heart of Africa: where tradition meets modernity
When you think about Africa, you probably think of Kenya and the savannah or the white sand beaches around Malindi and Lamu. Kenya is even more than this with its snow-capped mountain almost on the equator and within sight of harsh deserts. It is the lush, palm-fringed coastline of the Indian Ocean.
Kenya’s people are some of Africa oldest and authentic residents: The Maasai, the Samburu, the Turkana, the Swahili, the Kikuyu. These are the peoples whose histories and daily struggles tell the story of Kenya and of Africa, struggling daily to keep their traditions in a fast-paced developing country.
Kenya is the land of the Masai Mara, of wildebeest and zebras, of endangered species like black rhinos, but also home to the red elephants of Tsavo, to Amboseli elephant families in the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro and to the of pink flamingos. Kenya is the best place to breathe the wilderness and to experience nature at its best.
