Kenya is an iconic travel destination and the people of the country add to an experience that is seldom achieved elsewhere. Most Kenyan's have grown up in a safari culture and are thus very familiar with the needs of visitors.

Kenyan culture adds the flavour to an already full experience. The Maasai, arguably the most photographed people in the world, happily share their culture with interested visitors. Kenya is one of the few African countries that can provide stand-alone wildlife, history, beach and cultural safaris. To have them all in one country is phenomenal.
