She's beautiful, voluminous, rich and takes pride in herself. Her grandeur surprises many when they lay their eyes upon her splendour. People have even been named after her, and most carry an admiration for her that is unmatched. Many ask what's her name and how she became so well known. What is her name, you ask? Kenya!
"Its vast white sandy beaches are mainly what will draw you to Kenya, and for a good reason"
The truth is no picture can fully capture her beauty, even though many photographers and painters have tried. Its vast white sandy beaches are mainly what will draw you to Kenya, and for a good reason. Once you see it, you'll hear them calling you to sit down and take in its warmth.
When visiting this beautiful land's coastal region, you cannot miss the beautiful beach sunrises that wake you up with a kiss and the dolphin spotting excursion. Which will allow you to witness their social nature, as well as their majestic dives up-close when snorkelling in the marine park.
Kenya plays host to the rolling tea plantations that paint the scenery canvas in all shades of green while keeping the landscape under its warm embrace. Driving through these tea plantations on a lazy Sunday afternoon and then settling down by the roadside for a picnic is a sure way to connect with the beautiful outdoors.
"...watching the Elephants and Zebra walk close by. The majestic lions could treat you to a front-row seat during their hunt"
You want to see Maasai Mara
Finally, you cannot deny yourself the experience of going to the Maasai Mara. The "8th wonder of the world" is famous for its beauty, with the open savannah as a welcomed distraction from the hustle and bustle of city life.
The 5-hour drive to get there includes spectacular views of the Great Rift Valley's from the bottom and an even more splendid one while standing in the heart of it all. It spreads its magnificence in 7 countries, and we are glad to witness its rarity up close.
If you want to catch the wildebeest migration, then be sure to visit in July or August. You may have the privilege of having an open-car ride in the heart of Maasai Mara, watching the Elephants and Zebra walk close by. The majestic lions could treat you to a front-row seat during their hunt, as well.
Take a trip to the hippo sanctuary and wait for the wildebeest dance across the savannah. After being enchanted by this view, you can watch the sunset on the African savannah that paints the sky with a golden yellow halo.
I hope your path leads you to my beautiful country, and you can experience these beauties for yourself.
