    The map of Kenya is the location of the Savanna Grassland.
    • An interesting biome that would be neat to visit would be the Savanna Grassland in Kenya. The scenery looks very vast and interesting along with the climate and surrounding things that would be nice to see in real life. A bus trip or helicopter ride would give a good view of the Preserve in Kenya.

    • The Kenya contains some porous soil, along with a rapid drainage of water. The ground their has a thin layer of humus that helps provide organic portions of the soil that is created by the decomposition of plants, or animal matter. Which provides nutrients to plants and animals as well.
    Here is a picture of the porous soil in the Western part of the Kenya.
    Earth Day in Kenya was taking place when the picture was taken.
