One of the most popular reasons for travel in East Africa is the prolific game, the abundance of bird life, the scenic landscape that makes the three countries of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania excellent filming locations and some of the best beaches in the world. Trips are undertaken by Claudious Tours and Safaris to the famous game sanctuaries of Maasai Mara, Tsavo, Amboseli, Samburu, Lake Nakuru in Kenya; The above picture was taken at the lake turkana on the northern side of the country.
Northern Kenya is lightly populated, untamed and often barren.
