'Real freedom lies in wilderness, not in civilization' a quote best justified by Kenya. Located in the Eastern side of the African continent with a palm tree coast perpetually moistened by the Indian Ocean, Kenya is Earth's proudest display of biodiversity. With vast grasslands speckled with shrubs and herds of elephants, rhinos and zebras, Equatorial snow-capped mountains, the Great Rift Valley and the dense forests that homes the big cats of the jungle; Kenya presents travelers wildlife and wilderness that enthralls. Amidst the wild side of Kenya lies the simple and traditional lives of its people; whether it's the tribes or the city folks, Kenyans understand togetherness and compassion and how to rise above hardships. A bird's eye view of the Savannahs is almost as precious as the memories you will make in the culturally poised nation of Kenya.
