“The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti…”
These are the lyrics from one of the most famous songs we have grown up listening to- Toto’s Africa. The stories and tales about the continent of Africa have been captivating the imagination of every child through ages. The dark continent with its dark mysteries has one gem- Kenya.
The land of the wild and its glory Kenya, stands right on the coasts of the Indian Ocean, through the Great Rift Valley and mountain highlands. As the great expanse of the savannas stretches across the foot of the mountain, it provides shelter to the most fascinating wildlife ecosystem in the world. The land of the African safari, Kenya is a destination you should not miss in your lifetime.
The Kenyan story starts right from the capital city of Nairobi. It is the home to one of the strongest economies of the continent. However, your quest for a journey of wildlife will start right from its heart. The Nairobi National Park is a breeding safehouse for endangered species like the African black rhinos, lions, giraffes, zebras and more. An orphanage for elephants and a hand feeding Giraffe sanctuary will be a perfect start to your safari experience in the country.
It is probably one of the only places in the world where the capital city of a country itself has a range of tourism offerings that one is fascinated what the rest of the country might be having in store.
You might have heard of the adventures of Masai Mara or the Amboseli National Park or even the Mombasa beaches famous for honeymoons. You are also probably aware that all the “Big Five” animals of Africa namely the lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros, and elephant are found in Kenya. But little would you know that the real charm of the African joyride is lying elsewhere. The “Magical Kenya” handle of the Twitterati’s will give you a taste what exactly it can be about. Travellers are mesmerized about their experiences. Magical nights under the star-lit skies listening to distant wild cries. Or the tribal rhythms that take them back in time. The view of the snow-clad Mt Kilimanjaro standing alone in the horizon with herds of elephants and giraffes graze lazily under the setting sun. Or a sudden appearance of a lion family not paying any attention to you at all is what the real magic is about.
Kenya is a slice of the whole of Africa-its culture, its landscape, and the wildlife. Waking up in a camp in the grasslands, one can still see the same landscape unchanged through time as it was witnessed by our first human ancestors. It has been proven that the ancestors of the first humans, the Homo Erectus had evolved on these very lands before they went on to conquer the rest of the planet. Even today one can witness the primitive lifestyle of the Bantu people to experience a life so close to nature. Arabic culture too is prevalent here like in the rest of East Africa. A sense of pride in its strong tribal culture and history is seen as local Kenyans perform for you their traditional art forms, making you groove to a rhythm that has remained unchanged through ages.
