After a trip to Kenya and Tanzania in 2009, 2015 I visited the eastern part of the country. After a week of diving experiences on the coast near Mombasa I travelled a few days through the national parks of Amboseli, Tsavo East and Tsavo West. Despite, or maybe because of the small rainy season, there were especially many birds and, fortunately, numerous elephants, despite the increasing poaching activities in the region. In addition to the animal species mentioned above, large cats such as lion and cheetah could be observed, as well as many antelopes, giraffes and reptiles. The country is suffering greatly from the crisis in tourism due to the closeness to Somalia and the known problems in the Arab world. The prices are still relatively high, compared with other countries in East Africa with similar nature, which means that the tourists mostly avoid the country.
