Kenya’s landscapes are rich in diversity, from snow-clad mountain and glaciers to arid deserts, from dry savannah to lush lakes and dense forest. 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 with its snow-capped peaks rises above endless grassland plains. Tanzania is a stunning country containing a kaleidoscope of landscape, wildlife and people that is infinite in variety. Situated just south of the Equator, Tanzania is the largest East African nation bordered by shimmering lakes and the Indian Ocean; off its white sandy beaches lie the sleepy islands of Pemba, Mafia and exotic Zanzibar. Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. In this impossibly lush country one can observe lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rain forest undergrowth the same afternoon, then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippo and crocodiles before setting off into the misty mountains to stare deep into the eyes of a mountain gorilla. Uganda, the “Pearl of Africa”, is no ordinary safari destination. Rwanda is bordered by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the African Great Lakes region. Located a few degrees south of the Equator and highly elevated, with geography dominated by mountains in the west and to the east, with numerous lakes throughout the country, this landlocked East African country is known as the “Land of a Thousand Hills”.
