choosing kenya Nairobifor your safaris is the right thing, as recommended by Milcah Kipruto (director at skyjet tours and travel ltd), Kenya's incredible diversity can't barely be captured in few sentences ,visitors flock here to witness wonderful wildlife,sunbathe on sparkling beaches,climp the snow-capped mountains,swim&dive in the idyllic clear waters of Indian ocean....."kenya !! sweetland of africa" tourists all over the world choose kenya as their prefered destination., in most cases kenya is being referred as MAGICAL KENYA because of the following reasons;

Hey Shaun! You'll have a great time no matter what. Kenya is so fascinating, and the wildlife is incredible!
I only have two recommendations:
First: check out the Elephant orphanage in Nairobi It is expensive by Kenya standards, but it might have been the happiest hour of my whole life!! You can't watch those guys and not smile.
Second: I lucked out and went on a tour that involved 3 days of walking and 4 days of driving. The walking safari portion was AWESOME and taught me a lot about the land and the rhythm of life that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. We didn't see many animals up close during the walking portion, but plenty once we were driving inside the Maasai Mara National Reserve. So if you can find a safari that includes a walking portion - take it!
