Kenya

Kenya is a country on the continent of Africa, approximately half a world away from Los Angeles, California. It takes about 22-24 hours to fly there with one short stopover. Other flights can take up to 38 hours! The country has about 48 million people living there and is considered the jewel of Africa. The country has a wide range of environments, including mountain resorts, modern cities (Nairobi, the largest and the capital), lots of safari options with all the animals one would expect and the beautiful Mombasa coast, next to the Indian Ocean. It's a world away, for sure, but it's beauty and adventure is worth the trip. Just do lots of research and planning for the best results!
