Facts about Kenya

This African destination features many varied scenes of natural environments, colorful culture, and majestic wildlife. Tourists in Kenya are greeted with mountains, deserts, and beaches with beautiful coral reefs. Adventure vacationers can explore Kamega’s rain forests, India beaches in Mt. Kenya National Park, and grasslands in Masai Mara. Wildlife safaris entertain and delight tourists, who are often afforded a view of lions, leopards, and elephants. Tourists interested in giving back to the communities in this beautiful country find plenty of opportunities to make a difference. Many non-profit groups and service projects in Kenya accept charitable donations.

Environmental enthusiasts who want to help can donate to the Big Cat Conservatory project; this group is working to create a community wildlife conservancy and needs equipment to accomplish this. Other charitable groups in Kenya are working to provide medical care and AIDS awareness in the country; these groups accept donated medical supplies and DVDs on health education. Still other groups are working to improve the education of the African communities. Travelers interested in responsible tourism can donate school supplies, art supplies, and some sports equipment to help these groups.
