On safari in Kenya
Much of Kenya's tourism centers on its national parks and game reserves. While on safari, visitors are sure to spot at least one of the "Big Five" game species: lion, elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros and leopard. The Kenya Wildlife Service is charged with the conservation and protection of native flora and fauna. Pictured here, a herd of wildebeest in the Ol Kinyei Conservancy in the Maasai Mara.
