Kenya's landscapes are rich in diversity. Almost every known landform exists within this world in miniature, from a glacier-streaked mountain to arid deserts, dry savannah, lush lakes, and dense forests.

The Great Rift Valley, its floor littered with lakes and extinct volcanoes, cuts through Kenya from north to south. On the Equator, majestic Mount Kenya (5199m/17058ft) with its snow-capped peaks rises above endless grassland plains. To the north is the rugged and remote Northern Frontier District including Lake Turkana, "The Jade Sea" and its blue-green waters are in stark contrast to the arid surroundings. To the west is Lake Victoria, the largest of Africa's lakes and the legendary source of the Nile.

The famous Maasai Mara Reserve to the South West is the Northern extension of the Serengeti. To the South, the Indian Ocean coast offers sandy white beaches, and turquoise seas protected by a fascinating coral reef. These and the historical cities of Gedi and Lamu, all combine to make this one of the world's great holiday destinations.
