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

In this issue we take a whirlwind tour of Kenya’s national parks, reserves and conservancies, stopping off along the route to experience their many and gloriously varied highlights. Next, we head up to northern Kenya for some bedtime stories in the company of a troop of sleepy baboons.

In our cameo spot, we find out from American actress Kristin Davis – famous for her roles in the long-running American ‘soaps’ Melrose Place and Sex and the City – why she loves Kenya. It all began when she came across a baby elephant lost in the wild…
