Kenya

Whilst Kenya is only three hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and only eight hours flying time, it is a million miles away from the UK in most other respects. Few other countries are able to offer the sheer diversity of habitats which range from the baking hot desert terrains found around Lake Turkana in the north, to the permanent snow-capped peak of Mount Kenya and its alpine meadows on the lower slopes, the savannah grassland, equatorial forests, coral reef, tropical beaches, extinct volcanoes – the list is endless. It is, not surprisingly, a wildlife enthusiast’s dream. However, Kenya is not just about National Parks – it is also a country with a wealth of culture. There are 42 different cultures including the Masai and the Samburu as well countless languages and dialects and one of the most richly diverse social tapestries on earth.
