FROM THE GREAT RIFT VALLEY TO THE SPICE ISLANDS
Among the soft prairie grass and acacia trees, expansive herds of wildebeest, lion, elephant and zebra roam free. Blending in with this abundant wildlife and spectacular beauty are over 100 tribal groups and others of Indian, English, Asian and Arab ancestry. The result is a vibrant and complex culture like no other on earth. Kenya’s warm, welcoming and loving people make it an ideal setting in which to discover the simple joys of African life. If this is where your dream of Africa leads you, Kenya is the perfect place to begin your exploration of an incredible continent. And Zanzibar, one of the Spice Islands off the coast of Tanzania, is a stunning place to bring the program to a close.
