Kenya - Overview

A Kenya vacation is the perfect opportunity to experience a truly unique country. Authentic safaris, mountaineering, downtime on the beach and The Great Migration are just a few of the things you can expect to enjoy in this equatorial nation. 

The climate along the coast is tropical while further inland it varies, but one thing remains constant – warm temperatures. This allows families, couples or groups to make the most of Kenya vacation packages by spending as much time as possible exploring the great African outdoors. 

On any trip to the ‘Land of Safari’ be sure to consider some of the following renowned attractions:

Masai Mara and The Great Migration – Each year from August to October this amazing animal migration enters the Masai Mara from Tanzania’s Serengeti ; a truly spectacular natural phenomenon like no other. Approximately 750 000 zebra and over a million wildebeest make their way across the Mara River and into the Masai Mara. This is the biggest event of its kind in the world, spanning 500 miles and pitting plains game against the harsh elements, hunger and predation.

Amboseli National Park – Amboseli offers unrivaled views of Kilimanjaro and is a place of wonder. It is considered to be the best location on the continent to get close to wild elephants. 

Mount Kenya – Climbing enthusiasts can attempt to conquer the highest mountain in the country with the highest peak, Batian, reaching 17 057 ft into the air. It is a popular climbing destination for mountaineers, thanks to the unique conditions presented by the mountain, primarily due to its proximity to the equator. 

Samburu National Reserve – Located on the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro river, this reserve is home to over 350 species of birds. The three big cats - lion, cheetah and leopard - are also to be found here along with elephants, buffalo and hippos. There are also many plains animals to be viewed. 

Nairobi – As one of the few cities in the world to have a national park within its borders, the capital offers respite after exploring the wilderness. Nairobi contains a number of museums, as well as the biggest ice rink in Africa. Kenyan cuisine can also be enjoyed in this bustling center, such as Irio (mashed peas and potato mix), Kenyan Pilau (spiced rice), Wali wa nazi (coconut rice) and Nyama Choma (roasted meat).

Mombasa and the coast – The second largest city in the country is located on the shores of the warm azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Water skiing, scuba diving and deep-sea fishing are just a few of the activities that can be enjoyed here. Use this as a relaxing stop-over on your vacation in Kenya before moving on to your next destination.
