Kenya – Massages and Endless Savannas
Short for KE by abbreviationfinder, Kenya is a land of contrasts. It stretches from the sandy deserts in the north to the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean in the east, from the shores of Lake Victoria in the west to the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya. Here predators such as lions, leopards, cheetahs and huge herds of elephants hunt slowly across the savannah. But Kenya has much more than safaris to offer. Meet dignified Masai and join fabulous markets and paradise baths with dolphins. Trackers give you the opportunity to combine your journey as you wish. You travel when you want and stay away as long as you want.
Amboseli is located northwest of Kilimanjaro on the border with Tanzania. The park is mainly known for the large animals, especially the large elephant herds, but also for its beautiful landscape. The national park itself is relatively small but is part of a very large ecosystem. There is a rich wildlife here during the dry season. The national park has mainly five vegetation types that cover a dehydrated lake area. Amboseli is located in the rain shadow of Kilimanjaro, which means that the climate is mainly hot and dry, which means that Amboseli is excellent for safaris all year round.
Ol Pejeta Conservancy & Sweetwaters
The 35,000-hectare Ol Pejeta Conservancy is located between the Aberdare Mountains and the magnificent, snow-capped Mount Kenya. Ol Pejeta Conservancy boasts an astonishing variety of game including the “Big Five”. It is also a haven for rescued chimpanzees and also includes the Sweetwaters Game Reserve. The combination of amazing nature and fantastic views over the open plains of Ol Pejeta guarantees an unforgettable safari.
The Masai Mara National Reserve, often referred to simply as the Mara, is Kenya’s safari pride. Mara is located in southwestern Kenya, on the border with Tanzania. This huge area continues into Tanzania and becomes the Serengeti. During this year’s short rainy season in late autumn, the herds begin to leave the park to return to the Serengeti, where the wildebeest calve in February. These migrations, known as “migration”, can involve more than one million animals. You choose if you want to stay in a lodge or in “Hemingway style” in luxurious tents on private campsites with your own chef.
The long white sandy beaches outside Mombasa attract guests from all over the world. There is a large selection of hotels in all categories. Most are located directly on the white sandy beach of the Indian Ocean a few miles south of the city center. Feel free to make a detour from the beach into the center of Mombasa and experience the bustle of the markets or buy travel souvenirs at good prices. After a safari in the Masai Mara or Tsavo, for example, ending with a few days of sunbathing and swimming along the coast outside Mombasa is a perfect way to round off an adventurous trip.

When do you want to go?
According to countryaah, Kenya is located at the equator in eastern Africa and is one third larger in area than Sweden. The landscape is varied. From the coast, the country gradually rises to a plateau in central and western Kenya. Through the plateau and the whole country in a north-south direction runs Africa’s great valley, the Great Rift Valley.
Although Kenya is located at the equator, large parts of the country have a temperate climate, thanks to the high altitude. Along the coast, the climate is tropical: hot and humid.
