Kenya is generally associated with safari. With its vasts protected areas, the country hosts an abundance of wildlife, and the variety of ecosystems enables a diversity of animal species only few countries can rival.
Even though it is truly a wildlife paradise, Kenya has much more to offer to a traveler adept at going further beyond.
Traversed from North to South by the East-African Rift Valley, Kenya is adorned with spectacular landscapes : endless plains from within which abrupt mountains and granite inselbergs arise, high plateaus hanging over deep escarpments, immense tectonic faults with scattered salty lakes, and everywhere volcanoes studding the horizon.
Amidst all this scenery, peoples both beautiful and proud live in the rhythm of their olden traditions. A number of pastoral communities share a large portion of land while preserving the ecosystems that their livestock depend on. Comprising of nomads and transhumance herders, forced to be mobile by their herder status, it is on their bodies that they have expressed their artistic sense : jewellery, hair-do, finery, scarifications and other ornaments define each of these people.
All this is Kenya : a diverse and abundant fauna, landscapes that leave speechless, and superb peoples easily accessible to those who know how. Let’s add to this some preserved areas of white sands of the Indian Ocean…
Rare are countries that can offer as much marvels. And if we are able to lead you where the rest don’t go, which is the forte of African Rift Odyssey, you are sure to experience a trip that will imprint a mark in your memory that will never be erased.
