“All I wanted to do now was get back to Africa. We had not left it yet, but when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.” – Ernest Hemingway.
Kenya is one of the most interesting African countries. It is known for its rich wildlife and diverse landscapes. Here you will see flocks of pink flamingos settled on lakes Nakuru and Naivasha. The red earths of Tsavo National Park and snow-capped Mount Kenya. The golden expanse of Masai Mara and tropical forest of green palms along the Indian Ocean coast. Such natural diversity never gets boring, no matter how many times you come here.
Kenya’s national parks are home to all members of the Big Five. There is the largest population of black rhinos, rare and endangered animals such as Grevy’s zebra and Rothschild’s giraffe. In Kenya you can see an exclusive wildlife event – the Great Wildebeest Migration in Masai Mara.
Africa is the cradle of humanity. Many of the oldest human remains have been found in Kenya. As you travel through the country, you can get to know some of the tribes. There are about 43 of them in Kenya. You will notice how they are all different from each other. There is only one trait in all of them – incredible beauty, as if carved by the hands of God.
You will see a proud Masai warrior in a typical guard pose, guarding his tribe from possible danger. A woman in a long colored skirt, carrying water or branches for the fire on her sturdy shoulders. In general, watching Africans, you understand that they are all different. But they have one thing in common, both rich and poor – the desire to be beautiful. After watching the episodes of African life, your idea of beauty will greatly change.
Kenya, despite the fact that it tries to preserve its identity, is a very developed country. It has everything for a comfortable holiday. The most discerning tourist will be satisfied with the level of service, cuisine, and his room in the hotel. And the view from the room will be above all expectations, whether it is the savannah or the ocean.
The amazing experience of traveling to Kenya is made up of little things. It’s rushing through the morning savannah and feeling the cold wind through the open hatch of a jeep. Watching an innocent zebra with a hungry lion’s eye on her. It’s watching a sunset of incredible beauty in the savannah. At the same time feeling happy about what you see and sad about the fleetingness of the moment. It is to sit in the evening in the lodge by the fireplace and scroll in your head with a glass of wine or whiskey. It’s the amazing constellations in the southern sky. It’s the dazzling white sands of the Kenyan coast. It is fresh lobster and the most delicious Dawa cocktail in a beach bar by the Indian Ocean.
And one more thing. There is something about Kenya that is elusive, unexplainable. Something that you feel when you take your first breath when you set foot on Kenyan land. This “something” is so strong in your mind, makes you think of this country again and again. Finally it becomes the reason for your return to Kenya.
