Whilst Kenya is only three hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time 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.
Kenya is, not surprisingly, a wildlife enthusiast’s dream and still holds the world record for the most number of bird species recorded in a single country in a single day!
