IN THIS ISSUE 2018-01-09T06:21:25+00:00



Welcome to the first issue of Why I Love Kenya 2018, the official magazine of the Kenya Tourism Board and Kenya Tourism Federation, and the only world-class digital and print magazine to sell DESTINATION KENYA to the world.

In this, our 5th issue, we discover the magic of the coastal resort of Watamu, we meet a wizard and an archer, learn why flamingos are pink, track rhinos, taste coffee and whisper to birds. And all in the name of discovering what’s to love about Kenya in 2018.

Meanwhile, we’d like to wish a very happy and prosperous New Year to all our readers, our advertisers and our contributors. We look forward to spending another year in your company.
