Mu`tasim and her friends always travel to Europe and the US. This time, they decided to make a visit to Africa, specifically Kenya.
She says: “Finally, we found an advertisement about a journey to Kenya posted by a lady called Sahar Abu El-Ela.”
“The number of the journey participants reached 24, after that, we reached there and hired safari cars for a week,” the Egyptian woman added.
The best time to visit Kenya is in July and August because this coincides with animal migration.
“We can see many different species of animals like the strangest white baboon, Cheetah hyena elephants, monkeys, lions and approximately all kinds of animals,” Mu`tasim said.
Kenya is a land of excitement and suspense; it has forests, trees, and predators.
The country is full of natural sites; there are no luxury streets, tall buildings, shops or markets which is full of expensive goods.
Kenya, country in East Africa famed for its scenic landscapes and vast wildlife preserves. Its Indian Ocean coast provided historically important ports by which goods from Arabian and Asian traders have entered the continent for many centuries.
Along that coast, which holds some of the finest beaches in Africa, are predominantly Muslim Swahili cities such as Mombasa, a historic centre that has contributed much to the musical and culinary heritage of the country.
Inland are populous highlands famed for both their tea plantations, an economic staple during the British colonial era, and their variety of animal species, including lions, elephants, cheetahs, rhinoceroses, and hippopotamuses.
Kenya’s western provinces, marked by lakes and rivers, are forested, while a small portion of the north is desert and semidesert. The country’s diverse wildlife and panoramic geography draw large numbers of European and North American visitors, and tourism is an important contributor to Kenya’s economy.
