I live in Kenya. It is more than a sum of its parts. It is beaches and animals and rich and poor. Try it for yourself

“Kenya is savage and beautiful, poor and rich. It has months of endless sunshine and seasons of torrential rain. It is bathed in colours so bright they hurt your eyes and dust so thick the country is painted red. Kenya is corrupt yet honest, dangerous yet kind. It has a diverse and incredibly beautiful landscape, populated with wildlife that few countries on earth can match.   Nairobi is city exploding with art, designers, restauranteurs and the techy start ups. It is a modern capital and the third largest economy in Africa, yet within the city bounds you will find Africa’s largest slum. An hour outside the city you will find villages where lives have remained unchanged for centuries.

Kenya first found its place on my Africa bucket list when I heard about Giraffe Manor. A beautiful hotel where you can feed giraffes during your morning tea? Or swing in the courtyard whilst these long-necked giants walk around you? A dream! Kenya is also a terrific safari destination, full of diverse landscapes and cultures. I'd watch flamingos in Great Rift Valley, witness the great migration in Maasai Mara, and explore Kenya's capital city, Nairobi. It's definitely a place for the adventurous!

I have to go on a real safari before I die!
