Kenya is the Africa you dreamed of, a land of peoples with proud traditions rooted in the soil - the Maasai, Samburu, Turkana, Swahili, Kikuyu. Add to that the vast savannah, immense herds of wildlife, and the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro: there’s nowhere better to answer the call of the wild.  

Nairobi, the capital of Kenya and largest city of Kenya takes its name from the Maasai phrase Enkare Nairobi, which translates to "cool water" with a total land area of 268.7 sq miles (696 km²).  The city was founded in 1899.  Average weather 82°F (28°C), Wind SE at 6 mph (10 km/h), 37% Humidity, population in excess of 3 million.
