Other attractions include the mosques at Mombasa; the renowned scenery of the Great Rift Valley; the coffee plantations at Thika; a view of Mt. Kilimanjaro, across the border into Tanzania; and its beaches along the Indian Ocean.

forest and descend on floodlit water hole and salt lick, scuffling and jostling for a good vantage position. At night if
