Kenya's prolific and well-conserved wildlife is unparalleled anywhere in the world. This is a land where the world's remaining populations of big cats, big mammals, and bird life and plains game still roam freely in their natural habitats. With the gifts of nature bestowed in such profusion, Kenya remains the first choice country to visit. While in Kenya visit the source of the River Nile, the second largest fresh Water Lake in the world, the Lake Victoria, in Western Kenya.
