Kenya has a warm and humid tropical climate on its Indian Ocean coastline. The climate is cooler in the Savannah grasslands around the capital city, Nairobi, and especially closer to Mount Kenya, which has snow permanently on its peaks. Further inland, in the west, there is a hot and dry climate which becomes humid around Lake Victoria, the largest tropical fresh-water lake in the world. The northern parts are also hot and dry, and has a semi desert-like terrain which get very green when it rains.
Kenya is traditionally famous for its safaris, diverse climate and geography, and expansive wildlife reserves and national parks such as the East and West Tsavo National Park, the Maasai Mara (where the wildebeest migration takes place), Lake Nakuru National Park, and Aberdare's National Park. Kenya has several world heritage sites such as Lamu and numerous world-famous beaches, including in Diani, Bamburi and Kilifi where international yachting competitions are held every year. The diverse communities engenders a diverse culture, with one common feature across all the Kenyan cultures: Hospitality. Kenyans warmly welcome their peaceful visitors and give them preference regardless of the odds.
