Destination EcoTourist Kenya

Kenya is probably the most popular Safari destination in Africa. It’s also one of the most active countries on the planet in the industry of Ecotourism. It has actually been recognized by the international community as a country that’s setting standards for environmental conservation and regulation all throughout Africa. Kenya owes its’ status as an eco-tourist destination to its’ fauna, which includes a large group of mammals that are commonly referred to as the Big Five. They include: the lion, elephant, rhinoceros, leopard and buffalo.

The country’s dramatic contrasts and array of ecosystems which showcase a variety of extraordinary wildlife, makes it one of the leading destinations for the safari seekers. That said, you should know that Kenya has some of the best game reserves on the planet where you can get to see some of the best African flora and fauna. In addition to that, the country has absolutely stunning natural landscapes and you will find unparalleled views. If you’re looking for a real taste of the true African essence, then you need to travel to Kenya.

Kenya is perhaps best known for its’ wide grasslands of Maasai Mara where visitors can witness the great annual migration of wildebeest traversing the reserve (this usually happens from late June all through to the month of October). The wildebeest migrate from Maasai Mara to the Serengeti, and this awesome sight is best experienced in a hot air balloon safari. The Maasai Mara has been called “the Kingdom of Lions” and these jungle kings are a rather common sighting. The Mara is an incredibly awesome natural wonder where the Maasai warriors share the vast plains with the majestic lions and large herds of game.

Well, Kenya is not just about wildlife. It has a really gorgeous tropical coastline which has white sandy beaches and amazing beach resorts. The Kenyan coast not only offers great white sandy beaches, but there are also lots of coral reefs that teem with marine life; this makes the Kenyan coast ideal for snorkellers and scuba divers. The coast is actually one of the country’s biggest tourist attractions. Thanks to the white sandy beaches, the tropical islands and the romantic sunset cruises, there are many couples who opt to spend their vacation and honeymoon in this absolutely tranquil paradise.

Best Time of Year To Visit Kenya

Although Kenya has relatively good weather all year round, the best time of the year to visit this lovely country, is during the dry season which starts from the month of June to October. This is also the best time to watch the annual wildebeest migration.
