Against a seamless expanse of earth and sky, you will watch the primal dance of life with death, predator with prey. This eternal dual plays out across Kenya’s southern landscapes of vast plains, hills, thickets and waterways. The shimmering heights of Mt Kenya fall away into valley troughs as tectonic plates shift.

Onto green sweeps of swamp, alive with the lumbering shapes of hippo, buffalo and elephant. Notice how these verdant patches melt into golden stretches of grassland. Where these savannahs meet the clouds on the distant horizon, you may be graced with the sight of Mt Kilimanjaro.

On a clear day, the peaks of Mt Kenya make a spectacular appearance.
