Kenya travel guide

The place to go for a safari, Kenya is known for the “big five”– elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, and buffalo. Big game hunting has largely given way to the more eco-friendly wildlife safaris that have helped Kenya become one of Africa’s most popular tourist destinations. The national parks offer visitors the opportunity to undertake a number of leisure activities from hiking or scuba diving to beaching or spa hopping. Read more

Mount Kenya and the Maasai Mara are two of Kenya’s most famous landscapes and the ones most sought after by travelers. The former is an impressive range of snow-capped peaks which forms the highest mountain chain in the country while the latter comprises a vast savannah, home to the Maasai warrior people and the annual wildebeest migration, one of the world’s great natural spectacles.

Kenya is not just about animals and its long human history dates back to prehistoric times. The World Heritage listed Jesus Fort and the Old Town of Lamu Island are two of the most popular attractions that offer insight into the country’s European colonial and Arab trader periods.

Accommodations can vary wildly - from very cheap and basic to five-star resorts with full facilities and high prices. Eco-lodges are an emerging Kenyan specialty, often taking the form of luxury tents or huts made from local materials using traditional techniques while maintaining a focus on safety and comfort. Advance booking is recommended simply for ease of travel, while the best way to find delicious dining is to ask the hotel or look for where the locals go. African food is largely wholesome and simple, with barbecued meat being a delicious staple.

Most travelers get to Kenya through Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) at Nairobi, then after a day or two in the capital head to one of the game reserves. Getting around can be a bit challenging as the roads are often in poor condition. Seeing the country by tour bus or hired jeep can be a rewarding and enriching experience.

Top places to visit in Kenya

The main gateway to Kenya is Nairobi, East Africa’s largest city and the main hub for air and road safaris to Kenya’s diverse national parks and reserves. To the east of the capital, lie the vast and arid Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks, as well as the smaller Amboseli National Park, famed for its elephants and views of Kilimanjaro.

West of Nairobi, the Great Rift Valley is home to Lake Nakuru National Park and the peerless Maasai Mara National Reserve.

North of Nairobi lies Mount Kenya, the untrammelled Meru National Park, the arid Samburu-Buffalo Springs National Reserve, and the private conservancies of the Laikipia Plateau.

Further north lies the spectacularly remote Lake Turkana, while the far southwest comprises the densely populated basin that holds Lake Victoria. Finally, along the coast lie the ancient Swahili ports of Mombasa, Malindi and Lamu and some beautiful beaches.
