Kenya is definitely on my bucket list. There is just so much in the way of natural beauty to experience there. Most of the places described in this post, I was familiar with except for the beaches. I didn’t know that Kenya also has lovely beaches and so I guess this is just another reason for me to start thinking about when best to plan an overdue trip!
