Kenya is probably the most versatile country on the planet with sweeping savannah views, stunning tropical beaches, dense equatorial forests, and snow-capped mountains – a beautiful nation of dramatic extreme and classic contrasts. No matter your taste, this country has a little of everything to meet any adventurer’s desire.

Mount Kenya

It’s only befitting that we start with the highest spot in the country, Mt. Kenya which represents 5, 199 m of sheer beauty. It’s not just a mountain but also a hub of history and memories as volunteers normally hike to and hoist the Kenyan flag on the highest point of Mt Kenya – the Batian as a way to celebrate the independence and the end of the colonial rule over 5 decades ago. If you want to enjoy an array of flora and fauna merged with extreme freezing weather, snow-capped peaks plus a slice of history, then this place will warm your heart. Scaling Mt. Kenya is no easy feat especially if you’re not an avid hiker, but the view is totally worth the hassle.

Nairobi National Park

Set on the southern outskirts of the capital city, only 10 minutes drive from the city center, Nairobi National Park is the most accessible yet incongruous safari experience. It’s the only national park on the planet bordering a country’s capital and the backdrop of the city’s skyscraper makes it one of the most unique park in the world. The proximity to an urban center doesn’t seem to perturb the wildlife, however.

Hell’s Gate

Located in Naivasha, about 3 hours drive from the capital city, Hell’s Gate is home to diverse wildlife and over 100 species of birds. The astounding scenery complete with rock towers, gorges, towering cliffs, volcanoes, and belching plumes of geothermal steam makes this park the most atmospheric in Africa. It is parked with beautiful hiking and biking trails that are best experienced at dawn when the crowds are less, the surrounding quiet and the sun rising and casting shadows.

Masai Mara

Masai Mara is by far the most popular park in Kenya, offering a unique safari experience unlike any other in the world. Every year, thousands of wildebeests migrate from the beautiful Serengeti Park in Tanzania into Masai Mara in search of greener pasture and water.
The migration involves struggle and survival of the fittest as the wildebeests attempt to get across River Mara where many are killed by crocodiles and other predators. This migration happens annually around June and it’s such a fascinating sight to witness.

Coast Beaches

The Kenyan coastline is dotted with thousands of dazzling tropical beaches each boasting its own character and charm. Depending on how active you want to be, some offer a range of delightful activities while others have unspoiled beach resorts perfect for lazing around. Nyali’s proximity to the city makes it more urbanized yet with a calm and relaxing ambiance. Diani, on the other hand, is the most popular, providing a tranquil haven and renowned for its coral reefs, widespread palm vegetation, and underwater sandbars.
