Kenya has so much to offer

I just got back from a 10-day safari in Kenya. The country has so much to offer travelers.  I was really impressed with the diversity of the landscape: mountains, forest, lakes, beach, savannahs, and desert (unfortunately I didn’t make it to the beach).

Kenya is the most modernized of the East African countries, but it still has vast open areas and incredible wildlife. I saw all of the Big Five game (lion, elephant, leopard, Cape buffalo, and rhinoceros), as well as a cheetah, zebras, impalas, baboons, vervet monkeys, flamingos, hyenas, giraffes, hippos, wildebeest and more:

I especially enjoyed our visit to the David Sheldrick Animal Orphanage in Nairobi, which fosters orphaned elephants and rhinos until they’re old enough to be released back into the wild:

And the Giraffe Center, which is working to restore the population of the endangered Rothschild giraffe, a subspecies found only in protected areas of Kenya and Uganda:

We saw a lot of beautiful hotels and lodges and were impressed by the modern facilities, delicious food, and attentive service:
