Fact about Kenya relating Safari
Kenya is on the equator and covers some 583,000 square kilometres, which includes around 13,600 square kilometres of inland lakes. There are four zones: the coastal belt which features hot, humid weather all year; the Rift Valley and central highlands, the most scenic area, with its lakes and mountains and agreeable climate; western Kenya, with the northern tea plantations fading away to semi desert in the south and the Masai Mara National Reserve on the Tanzanian border; and the north and east of the country, which consists of vast semi-arid bush land where rainfall is sparse and cattle grazing abundant.
CLIMATE As Kenya is set on the equator, it does not experience the dramatic seasons that one has within the Northern or Southern hemispheres. With temperatures remaining constant throughout more of the year, Kenya’s climate is renowned for being very pleasant, with contrasts in temperatures and rainfall due to variations in terrain and altitude.
