Revered by many anthropologists as the 'cradle of humanity', Kenya is wild and a little dangerous. If you're adventurous - and sensible - it promises the globe's most magnificent wildlife parks, unsullied beaches, thriving coral reefs, memorable mountainscapes and ancient Swahili cities. The Swahili word safari (literally, journey) wouldn't mean much to most people if it wasn't for this East African adventure land. No matter how many Tarzan movies you've seen, nothing will prepare you for the annual mass migration of wildebeests in the Masai Mara.

Tue, 31 Dec 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [217]

The last day of 2013 brings with it another perfect blue sky and a cooling breeze that blows off the sea and over the warm soft sands. Coconut palm fronds sway, rustling over our heads. The tide is out and sitting at Rosada in Malindi we watch people ... Read more >
