Welcome to our eighth issue of Why I Love Kenya, the official magazine of the Kenya Tourism Board and Kenya Tourism Federation.

In this issue, we offer you a uniquely far-reaching safari that can be enjoyed either on screen or from the comfort of your armchair. We’ll be taking you ruby mining in Tsavo West National Park and offering you a ringside seat at the Maasai Olympics in Amboseli. We’ll also introduce you to our very own Olympian, ‘King’ David Rudisha, who’ll be telling you why he loves Kenya.

Heading north to the heat-shimmering Samburu lands, we’ll invite you to take a plunge into the crystal-clear natural swimming pool of Buffalo Springs. And returning to Nairobi, we’ll take you shopping for some utterly unique gifts and introduce you to the wonders of Nairobi National Park – the only city park in the world.

Finally, in this special conference feature, we’ll give you an insight into all that Kenya has in store for those planning a conference, meeting or commercial event.
