Samburu Game Reserve – Unique semi-arid landscapes as well as animal species only found here.
Lamu, Kenyan Coast – An idyllic beach town seemingly unaffected by time – just completely relaxing.
Mount Kenya – Snow capped mountain – a more challenging climb than Kilimanjaro.
Laikipia – A region rich in wildlife, protected under a system of conservancies – the future of wildlife conservation.
Aberdare National Park – A highland park, and one of the few where trekking is allowed.
South Coast, Mombasa – the best beaches in Kenya – fine white sand, clear blue water and sunny skies.

Kenya & East Africa are naturally photogenic locations not surprising considering the stunning landscapes,
often stretching for as far as the eyes can see, as well as the great lighting conditions thanks to a generally blue-sky climate
and ofcourse there’s the magnificent wildlife too.
