Take for example Kenya, in East Africa, where you’ll find nature wonders like the Savannah, lakelands and Great Rift Valley. From it’s capital Nairobi, safaris visit the Maasai Mara Reserve and Amboseli National Park, offering views of Mt. Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania. On the other side of the african continent, Morocco is a very popular tourist destination, welcoming travelers from all over the world.
