Reasons Why You Should Visit Kenya at Least Once

Visit wildlife conservancies

There are more than 100 operational wildlife conservancies in Kenya, split between public and private land across the country. Each one aims to preserve and promote healthy wildlife ecosystems, complementing Kenya’s national park system. From Ol Pejeta near Mount Kenya to Ol Kinyei near the border with Tanzania, conservancies provide visitors with unforgettable experiences of incredible animals.

Visit pristine beaches and sail the Kenyan coast

A visit to Kenya is incomplete without a visit to the beautiful beaches in Mombasa, Malindi, Diani and Lamu. Lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, the coast offers snorkelling and kitesurfing adventures as well as complete relaxation. Stay in a Swahili beach house and take long strolls along soft sand in the evenings; make sure to try some fresh seafood and delicious Swahili cuisine.

Watch the wildebeest migration in the Mara and see the Big Five

The yearly Great Migration, usually in July and August, is a spectacle to behold in Maasai Mara National Reserve – two million wildebeest arrive in Kenya from Tanzania in search of water and greener pastures. The Mara is a great place for a safari, as are other national parks in the country. Look out for the Big Five (lion, buffalo, elephant, leopard and rhino) in their natural habitats.

Delight your taste buds with Kenyan food
