This is the safari centre of the world, but beware. Kenya has strict wildlife protection laws, and prohibits the collection of corals and the export of products made from elephants, rhinos and sea turtles. Trade in products made from certain reptiles is also prohibited. Trade is allowed for some species, although you should always check to see what permits are required, especially for the export of any plants, insects and shells. Kenya is famous for wood carvings but some species are poorly managed, therefore you should strive to buy carvings made from exotic species such as mango and neem.
