On Africa's east Coast, Kenya straddles the equator and shares a
border with Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda and Tanzania. Its coast
is lapped by the Indian Ocean and it shares the vast waters of Lake
Victoria with its western neighbours.
The Rift Valley and central highlands area form the backbone of
the country, and this is where Kenya's scenery is at its most spectacular.
The humid coastal belt includes the Tana River estuary and a string
of good beaches. Western Kenya takes in the fertile fringes of Lake
Victoria and some prime game parks.
The vast, arid north-eastern region is where Kenya is at its wildest
and most untouched by the modern world.
Varies from the tropical south, west, and central regions to arid
and semi-arid wasteland in the north and the northeast.
