“Jambo!” – A warm African hello
Kenya, breathtaking landscapes, cultures and wildlife.
Located in East Africa with a coastline flanking the Indian Ocean, Kenya encompasses many landscapes – savannahs, lakelands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley and mountain highlands too. It is home to rich and thriving animal populations, including lions, elephants and rhinos. From the capital, Nairobi, safari goers make their way to the Masai Mara Reserve (known for its annual wildebeest migrations) and Amboseli National Park (which offers breathtaking views of Tanzania’s 5,895 m Mt. Kilimanjaro). The fact that it straddles the equator with negligible seasonal temperature variance, makes Kenya the perfect year-round destination for a combination safari-and-beach holiday.
Seen as the sacred land of safari, Kenya has a special appeal from July to October. It is at this time that the scene is set for one of the world’s most epic natural wonders when almost two million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle leave the southern Serengeti, to arrive in the Masai Mara from late June. The Masai Mara, together with Amboseli and Tsavo National Parks and the Chyulu Hills, offers fantastic year-round game viewing including the legendary ‘Big Five’.

The power supply is UK / European standard voltage of 220/240 and power sockets are UK style (square pin type). It is important to note that if you want to use US appliances, you will need a voltage converter as well as a plug converter. Power cuts and voltage fluctuation are not uncommon. Most of the safari lodges have generators or alternative source of power and may have specific times when they run.
