Favorite thing: <BR><font color=green><font size=+1>THE PARKS</font></font><BR>
There are 31 National Parks in Kenya, but after the 5th one you'll be completely fed up of animals, so here are my first five, try to see at leat 2 or 3 of them:<BR>
<font color=red>Aberdares</font>: Here is the famous 'Treetops' lodge, built on trees. The Park is quite close to Nairobi, part of it belongs to the Kikuyu.<BR>
<font color=red>Mt. Kenya</font>: As Aberdares, this park is part of the <i>Highlands</i> close to Nairobi. Mt. Kenya (5.199m) is the 2nd highest mountain in Africa. Mt. Kenya Safari Club is one of the most exclusive lodges in Kenya.<BR>
<font color=red>Amboseli</font>: near the Tanzania border, its main charm is its wonderful backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Not a very big Park, its main atraction is the Black Rhino.<BR>
<font color=red>Tsavo</font>: the largest and wildest Park in Kenya. A bit far from Nairobi, you can see part of it if you take the train to Mombassa.<BR>
<font color=red>Masai Mara</font>: if you are going to see just one park, this is the one. It continues over the border to Tanzania in Serengeti Nat. Park. Its endless plains are one of the best treasures of Africa. If you can afford it, go <a href='http://www.madahotels.com/balloonsafaris.html' target=_blank>Ballooning</a>!!
