The following are pictures of some of the most popular tourist destinations in East Africa. This definition of East Africa encompasses Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.

Wildlife

Some parts of East Africa have been renowned for their concentrations of wild animals, such as the "big five" of elephant, water buffalo, lion, leopard and rhinoceros, though populations have been declining under increased stress in recent times, particularly the rhino and elephant.
