Straddling the equator and covering an area of some 583,000 sq km, including around 13,600 sq km of Lake Victoria, Kenya is undeniably beautiful. Oh yes is she beautiful! The country, which is bordered to the north by Ethiopia and Sudan, to the east by the Indian Ocean and the deserts of Somalia, to the west by Uganda and Lake Victoria, and to the south by Tanzania, contains almost every possible landscape. There are golden deserts of epic expanse, jungles of creepy-crawlies, snowman-friendly ice-caps, sultry beaches lapped by warm waters full of fish far too pretty to eat, farmers’ fantasy agricultural land, lush lakes and, of course, the undulating savannas of safari legend. Whatever you want this beauty’s got it.
