Kenya is the quintessential African safari destination, home to the great wildebeest migration, the Masai Mara National Reserve and the pristine Loita Hills—widely considered to be Africa's finest wildlife reserve. Its prehistoric finds are breathtaking and include the oldest human remains on the planet, dating back a staggering 7 million years! In mobile tented camps you'll get a true, wilderness Out of Africa feel in a land that hasn't changed much since Karen Blixen wrote her memoir. And Kenya doesn't disappoint when it comes to viewing wildlife, especially big cats, and you'll have more opportunities to get close to cheetah, lion, and even leopard here than in any other country. Beyond the amazing Big Five viewing, however, Kenya is also culturally enigmatic and naturally beautiful country that's home epic tribes like the Maasai and Samburu people and amazing landscapes, including a storied and stunning coastline where traditional dhows still trawl turquoise seas.
