Have you ever been to Kenya? It’s one of the most developed countries in Africa, and also one of the places on earth
with the most diverse nature and culture. There are so many beautiful Destination to visit, and lovely people to meet.
If you haven’t yet been here are reasons why you should visit Kenya at least once in your life!
- You might spot the Big Five
Kenya is largely rich in wildlife watching destinations. It’s the home of the Big Five (African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard
and white/black rhinos). Responsible safari operators Like Incredible Kenya Adventures, will help you to have a life time Moment.
- Rustic Beaches
The coastal city of Mombasa is just one of the enchanting places where you can enjoy the untouched beaches of Kenya. Soak up the sun and
explore cultural sites such as old colonial ports that rest against the seaside. Read more about the best beaches in Kenya as well as
the cultures that influenced them.
3. Witness the greatest migration on Earth (world wonder)
From mid-August to October, more than a million wildebeest migrate from the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania to Kenya’s Maasai Mara,
accompanied by hundreds of thousands of Thomson’s gazelle, zebra and eland. Despite the plethora of videos and photography of the
migration available online, nothing comes close to seeing in person the mass movement of animals, lumbering, strutting and swaying in
one of the great wonders of the natural world.
4. It’s ideal for safari first-timers
Kenya is highly recommended as one of the best countries in Africa for those on their first wildlife watching expedition. “If you catch an
overnight flight from Heathrow you can transfer to a light aircraft next morning and be in the bush in time for lunch,” he said. “Such things
are possible in Nairobi because Kenya’s safari industry is backed up by an efficient tourist infrastructure with a dazzling choice of camps and
lodges to suit all budgets. This is, after all, where modern safaris were invented back in the Twenties.”
5. Wills proposed to Kate in Kenya so do you.
Kate Middleton and Prince William stayed at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in the foothills of Mount Kenya in October 2010, and came home
engaged after the heir to the throne proposed at the luxury lodge. Unesco-listed Lewa, which has 55,000 acres of savannah, is home to
the Grevy’s zebra, and more than 70 black rhinos, as well as elephants, lions and cheetah.
6. You can eat breakfast accompanied by giraffes
The famous Giraffe Manor is set in 12 acres of private land in a Nairobi suburb and allows guests to participate in sunset feeding sessions.
Expect other impromptu feeding sessions: the herd of Rothschild giraffes will often poke their heads through the windows of the
manor house for extra treats.
Kenya enjoys a wonderful tropical climate. It is generally warm all year round, with plenty of sunshine and cooler nights and mornings. Visitors
are able to enjoy most activities on the beaches and in the national parks all year round. Since Kenya lies on the equator, the seasonal
temperature changes are not extreme. However, due to the differing topography, you will experience different weather patterns
when traveling across Kenya. The hottest months of the year are February and March with temperatures as high as 93°F (34°C) while
the coolest season falls between July and August with temperatures dropping to around 60°F (16°C). Kenya provides very perfect
weather for those who live in colder countries to escape to.
- 8. Underwater National Parks
And the wildlife discovery isn’t just for the landlubbers, snorkelling and diving is a rewarding experience amongst the bathtub-warm waters
off the Kenyan coast. Take a jaunt to the Malindi Marine National Park and spot crabs, tropical coral, colourful fish, sea
cucumbers, dolphins, turtles and more. The established sister marine park, Watamu, is a UN recognised World Biosphere Reserve
that’s home to the endangered Olive Ridley turtles.
You could climb a mountain, lie on a pristinely white beach, enjoy the lively activity of the cities and towns, spot game amongst the plains
& savannah, and learn about countless tribes and their way of life. Kenya really is like Africa all in one, with endless possibilities within
her borders. With fabulously friendly people, when you step off that plane, you’ll always be greeted with “Jambo!” and a broad grin.
This is the continents finest.
- Mount Kenya
Not all the allures of Kenya are within its plains areas. Africa’s second tallest peak, Mount Kenya, has three different summits that
present climbs with certain degrees of difficulty. This mountain is an epitome of the diverse set of choices of adventures that are
readily available in Kenya. People can go for a route up Mount Kenya that includes scrambling and hiking, while veteran
climbers can opt for a journey that requires mountaineering skills.
