Kogelo, where US President- Barack Obama’s father was born, was just an ordinary sleepy village in Western Kenya. Kogelo’s status changed overnight after Obama made history by becoming the first African-American to win the US presidency and his late father’s village has since then been basking in the international glory. Barack Obama has only made three visits to the village in his lifetime to trace his roots. 

Kenya. It’s a country where you can come face to face with lions and watch a cheetah take its midday nap. It’s a land where elephants have right of way. And it’s a place where the sunset chorus from the waterhole will beat Adele’s latest album hands down.

              You can also enjoy fantastic beach in Kenya. Kenya’s beaches are serious competition for the Caribbean. Blockbusters like Bamburi and Diani are the places to pull on your wetsuit and explore the nearby coral reefs. The clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean lap gently at the sand, providing a romantic and peaceful setting for many.
