Located in eastern Africa on the equator, the country is known for being home to the second highest mountain on the continent, sweeping grasslands, Lake Victoria and some of the fiercest animals in the jungle. From humid tropical weather on its coastline along the Indian Ocean to the arid savannah, Kenya boasts a diverse ecosystem featuring expansive areas of land devoted to wildlife habitats, as well as one of the world’s most captivating spectacles: the great migration of more than 1 million wildebeest.
But it’s just not all lions and tigers. Kenya boasts the largest and most advanced economy in central and eastern Africa, relying heavily on the tourism, agriculture, higher education and telecommunications industries. Tourists visit by the thousands annually to enjoy safaris through game reserves and national parks as well as more urban experiences such as malls and hypermarkets.
In less than two weeks, TQ will be taking off to visit this incredible country. Our tour will take animal-lovers and astronomy buffs to explore everything between the savannah and skies. Safari-goers will get up close and personal with zebras, rhinos and cheetahs in their natural habitats on one of the most famous game reserves, Amboseli National Park, beautifully situated in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro. For the much-anticipated moment of totality on November 3, tour groups will head to one of two viewing sites: the remote shores of Lake Turkana or nearby at Uganda’s Muchison Falls National Park. Both are sure to provide an unforgettable display; after all, in this breathtaking landscape, how could they not?
