One of the things that makes Kenya such an interesting destination is its wide range of scenery and wildlife habitats. Dominated as it is by The Great Rift Valley, Kenya offers the discerning traveller the choice between rivers, lakes, mountains, forests, savannah, bush and beach. Most of these destinations contain an extraordinarily wide range of game.
