Where to Go in Kenya
The Masai Mara is where to go in Kenya for the dramatic wildebeest migration but there’s a great deal more to this East African country.

And after the drama of a Kenya safari, what could be better than a few lazy days on a white-sand beach? Kenya’s tropical coast offers everything from buzzing resorts to exclusive island hideaways making the country ideal for safari and beach vacations.

Masai men and women will congregate for the customary singing and dancing performances around sundown.
