Kenya is a cultural microcosm of Africa, a land of contrasts, where you will find savannahs rich with big game, timeless cultures unchanged by the modern world, pristine beaches and coral reefs, equatorial forests and mighty snow-capped mountains, searing deserts and cool highland retreats offering endless opportunities for adventure, discovery and relaxation.
Kenya lies astride the equator on the eastern coast of Africa. It is a medium-sized country by continental standards, covering an area of 586,600km2.
Warm and welcoming, Kenya is the place the phrase ‘Hakuna matata’ (no worries) embodies the national attitude; and a smile is the most valuable currency. Getting here has never been easier. Many international airlines fly direct to Nairobi or Mombasa on a frequent basis, while others route via Ethiopia, European, Middle Eastern or Asian destinations. Internally, there is an extensive air, road and rail network, meaning transfers are efficient and affordable.
