Kenya is a Paradise for Vacationers

These offer unmatched opportunities for unforgettable escapades, adventure and relaxation. Here are just a few of Kenya’s attractions…

Kenya Animals

Kenya’s biggest tourist attraction is its wildlife. The country is home to some of the most majestic animals in the world; the elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, and rhinos. Giraffes, hyenas, zebras, wildebeests and monkeys are also common sights.

The country is also home to many national parks where you can experience these Kenyan animals in their wild habitats. Masai Mara National Reserve is Lion Country and hosts the breathtaking annual wildebeest migration. Tsavo National Parks are famous for their red elephants.

Amboseli National Park is elephant country par excellence and provides picturesque views of the majestic Kilimanjaro. This is Africa’s highest mountain and the highest freestanding mountain in the world. Lake Nakuru National Park is home to millions of flamingos and is one of the top rhino sanctuaries.

And, Nairobi National Park offers you the chance to see wild lions, rhinos, leopards, buffaloes and giraffes against the backdrop of the capital city’s skyscrapers.

Kenya Beaches

Despite its wildlife popularity, Kenya’s beaches also have a lot more to offer. The coastal city of Mombasa offers some of the finest beaches anywhere as well as traditional water sports such as swimming, surfing, sailing, snorkeling and deep sea fishing.

Malindi and Watamu offer stunning coral reefs and out-of-this-world diving opportunities. And, Lamu with its narrow alleys, dhows from a bygone era and uninhabited island is a great place to unwind. For this reason, Lamu is particularly popular with honeymooners.

Kenya is also home to fascinating lakes. Lake Victoria in Western Kenya is the world’s second largest lake and the source of the River Nile. Equally fascinating is that Kogelo, US President Barack Obama’s ancestral village is located on Lake Victoria.

Lake Nakuru is an alkaline lake that hosts millions of flamingoes. Lake Bogoria is famous for its geysers and hot springs. Lake Turkana is both the world’s largest permanent desert lake and the world’s largest alkaline lake. Its vicious inhabitants include crocodiles, vipers and scorpions.


For those craving true adventure, there’s nothing like climbing to the top of Mount Kenya, the highest mountain in Kenya. Climbing to the highest peaks of Batian and Nelion will fill you with a sense of fulfillment and give you an opportunity to see glaciers and some unique vegetation such water holding cabbages.

Mount Elgon in the west of the country also provides excellent mountain climbing opportunities and a chance to see a herd of salt-mining elephants at work. And although Mount Longonot is the shortest of the 3 mountains in Kenya, it still offers worthwhile hiking opportunities.


You’ll find a wide variety of possible accommodations in Kenya, particularly in the popular destinations cited above. And as is the case with every major city, you’ll find the full spectrum of accommodations.

From fully luxury hotels some of them in the heart of the African jungle to more hotels that provide the basics at an affordable cost. The most memorable of these accommodations are luxury tented lodges in the heart of the Kenyan wilderness, notably the Masai Mara.

Experiencing Kenya

As you can see, Kenya offers plenty of amazing adventures for any tourist to enjoy. From incredible encounters with wildlife to hikes up snow-capped mountains, soothing beach walks and fun water sports, Kenya has it all.

So, when planning a vacation, why go somewhere that millions of other people visit every year? Why visit caged animals at the zoo when you can see them in their natural habitat? Why go on a man made roller coaster for adventure when you can get an adrenaline rush just from looking at the beautiful scenery outside your window? Instead of booking a boring vacation to the beach or to a man made resort, consider exploring Kenya.
