Kenya is home to the biggest lake (Victoria) and shares a border with the highest Mountain (Kilimanjaro). Literary and movie fans will recall Hemingway’s “Snows of Kilimanjaro and Issak Denison’s “Out of Africa” Not to mention hundreds if not thousands of documentaries, and animated cartoons about the abundant and amazing Wildlife.
Having visited many counties, Kenya remains my favorite. It holds a rich history and has always been the premier location for an authentic but luxurious safari. Queen Elizabeth went from princes to queen while vacationing in Kenya in 1952. Its also no surprise Prince William proposed to Kate while on Safari in Kenya. He thinks of it as a ‘second home’
When it comes to wildlife Kenya has a diverse population. It has 1055 species of birds, more then any other country in Africa. In 1975 it held the first world record for the most birds spotted in a 24hr period (288 species). This was recaptured again in 1986 with 342 species were recorded.
