In the past centuries, the main visitors to Kenya were Arab traders who plied their dhows along the Eastern coast of Africa. These days, it is tourists and adventurers who come to Kenya in large numbers: currently around one million visit Kenya annually and little wonder, as it offers an amazing variety of attractions. For many people, Kenya translates into wildlife and Kenya truly is the heart of the safari in Africa: from millions of wildebeest, zebra and other animals that cross to Masai Mara from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania during their annual migration to the equally breathtaking sight of hundreds of pink flamingoes massing on the shores of the Rift Valley Soda Lakes.
For sheer majesty it is hard to beat the sight of a herd of elephants crossing the flat plains of Amboseli with Africa's most famous mountain, the evocative snow-capped Kilimanjaro , rising in the background.
Kenya has also acquired a reputation of having a variety of flora and fauna, temperate and tropical climate, a beautiful landscape, fresh meat products, fruits and vegetables and above all, friendly and hospitable people. Dubbed as the cradle of the mankind, the indigenous people have a legacy of rich traditions and cultures. The tourists’ products that Kenya has established have won several accolades as the best in the sub-Saharan Africa.
