Kenya has many famous nature reserves, and the most famous is the Maasai Mara. It’s where the Maasai people live, who are well known because they reside near these famous animal reserves. And the Maasai Mara National Reserve (together with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania) is famous for the migration of millions of zebras and wildebeests.

When you tour Kenya people often visit the Lake Nakuru National Park, famous for its large population of flamingos. They offer great photo opportunities. You can find plenty of other birds here such as the pelicans and great cormorants. And safari wildlife is well represented here too by the hippo, rhino, giraffe, baboon, lion and leopard.

A nice place to visit is Watamu, a village south of the large seaside town of Malindi. Watamu is famous for the Watamu Marine National Park with quite a pristine coral reef. After your safari inland you can head here for some relaxing time enjoying the sun and the sea.

You can also do this in Lamu, the oldest city of Kenya, located on an island. It’s a fishing city where the population is mainly Muslim. There are no cars on the island, so there are no roads only narrow paths. The most used form of transport is by dhow (an ancient kind of sailboat), or by donkey.
