Roaring lions, snorting wildebeest and trumpeting elephants puncture the silence between Kenya’s vast African sky and sun-baked plains. Fishermen haul in nets of crabs and lobsters off Mombasa’s shore and Maasai warriors point out rhino tracks to stupefied safari-goers. Wildlife and humans mingle peacefully in modern-day Kenya. Luxury safari camps and ecolodges comfortably cushion the outdoor adventure and Nairobi’s AFEW Giraffe Center and David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust advance the cause for wildlife protection. Hearty, fire-roasted meat fuels the climb up Mount Kenya and snorkeling in the Indian Ocean.
