Kenya lies astride the equator on the eastern coast of Africa. It is a medium-sized country by continental standards, covering an area of about 586,600 km2. Inland water bodies cover some 10,700 km2, the bulk of this in Lakes Victoria and Turkana. Kenya has tremendous topographical diversity, including glaciated mountains with snow-capped peaks, the Rift Valley with its scarps and volcanoes, ancient granitic hills, flat desert landscapes and beautiful beaches, coral islets and reefs.

The principal Towns are Eldoret, Kitale and Nakuru. All the other towns are considerably smaller in size and have far fewer facilities. Nakuru is strictly outside the North Rift (in what we might call Central Rift) but is a gateway to the eastern side of North Rift ---- particularly the Baringo sub-region. Eldoret, in particular offers some good accommodation and together with Iten (a little to the north) is known as the home of athletics. Iten also offers paragliding off the edge of the Rift. Eldoret International Airport handles charter-flight arrivals; but most visitors fly in by a local airline connection from Nairobi. More Info
Because of their remoteness, some of these Parks and Reserves are rarely visited. Amongst the more well-known and most frequented are Mt. Elgon, Saiwa Swamp, Lake Bogoria and the Kakamega Forest. The Turkana National Park has been gaining attention recently and is special for those visitors of a more scientific mind who would like to visit "the Cradle of Mankind". The Kenya Wildlife Service is responsible for protecting most of the Parks and Reserves. Read More
