Kenya

Discover Kenya with Ujuzi African Travel

Kenya encompasses every sort of terrain, from the dramatic depths of the Great Rift Valley to the peaks of Mount Kenya. This makes it an ideal home for a diverse array of wildlife, including lions, elephants, rare Rothschild giraffes, blue-necked Somali ostriches, and critically endangered black rhinos. Kenya is also known for the annual crossing of the Great Wildebeest Migration across the Mara River, where these peaceful grazers risk life and limb to navigate crocodile-infested waters—all in pursuit of the lush green grasses of the fertile Masai Mara.
