East Africa is one of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes in the world, and its magnificent wilderness full of fascinating wildlife is one of the few remaining unspoiled regions on earth.

Lake Naivasha is the ideal habitat for both the rare fish eagle and African eagle, thus it is a perfect location from which to observe these fascinating birds. Due to its rich variety of wildlife and the spectacular beauty of its landscape, Kenya is one of Africa's most popular safari destinations.

The Massai Mara National Park is located around six hours from Nairobi and is one of the country's most extraordinary game reserves. Its name indicates the presence of one of Africa's most colorful tribes, the Massai.

The Amboseli National Park also contains many of East Africa's most important landscapes and represents the magnificence of the African flora and fauna that grows in this relatively small, protected area.

The local wildlife stays at a safe distance from the geysers of Lake Bogoria, as the steaming hot springs can prove fatal for the flamingos and other water birds that live there. Nevertheless, quite often, the bones of dead animals can be seen close to the geysers as some venture too close and are killed by the hot steam.

At an altitude of nearly 6,000 metres, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the African continent. For most of the time, its summit is covered by a dense ring of cloud that gives the mountain an air of mystique.

There are few other places on earth that offer the huge variety of nature as does the legendary east of the African continent, a magical destination and a wild natural paradise that is second to none!
