6 Amazing Kenya Experiences

6 Amazing Kenya Experiences: Large herds roaming the Maasai mara plains; dusk under the lone acacia tree. After your afternoon wildlife drive, you think you’ve seen everything Kenya has to offer as you sip sundowners on the porch of your luxury tented camp.

Although a Kenya safari might be the most memorable experience you have in Kenya, the nation also provides a diverse selection of other activities. Here are a few examples.

  1. Breakfast with giraffes

Focus East Africa Tours’ “Magical Kenya Signature Experience” includes breakfast with the giraffes at Giraffe Manor in Nairobi.

The 140 acres of proteced territory at the outskirts of Nairobi National Park are home to 10 Rothschild giraffe in the ivy-covered Giraffe Manor, which was built in 1932 and is next to the Giraffe Centre. In response to Kenya’s diminishing Rothschild giraffe population—there are now more than 300 in the entire nation—the Giraffe Centre was founded as a breeding effort. A stay at the mansion, which is now a boutique hotel, includes breakfast, which occasionally includes a visit from a giraffe who peers his neck through the lofty windows in search of a treat.

  1. Run a Marathon

It is no secret that Kenya has given birth to some of the best long-distance runners in the world, and it is simple to understand why. Kenya offers possibilities for visiting runners as well because the country’s broad areas, expansive beaches, and rugged outcrops are ideal training grounds for marathons. There are a few marathons for runners to select from. From the Amazing Maasai Marathon to the Lewa Safari Marathon, a number of these races promote deserving causes like the protection of wildlife and the education of females.

  1. Visit an Elephant Orphanage

As the first organization in the world to successfully hand-raise orphaned, milk-dependent elephants and reintroduce them to the wild, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. You may engage with the sweet newborn elephants and perhaps adopt one at the Nairobi National Park‘s Elephant Nursery while learning about the dangers that this amazing species faces. DSWT’s ongoing Orphan’s Project follows each orphan’s development and uses exceptional, potent storytelling to connect donors with their effect.

  1. View Contemporary Art

There are many possibilities to view young and established Kenyan and foreign artists in Nairobi’s galleries thanks to the city’s thriving art scene. Although there is some turnover, like in every city, there are currently a few well-established contemporary spaces that make visiting the One Off Contemporary Art Gallery, the GoDown Arts Centre, and the Artz Gallery a profitable day of gallery hopping. Notably, the celebrated Nairobi Gallery in the center of the capital serves as the official residence of the superb private collection amassed by the late vice-president of Kenya, Joseph Murumbi, known as the Murumbi African Heritage Collection.

  1.  6 Amazing Kenya Experiences : Take a Cheese Tour

You are not, in fact, in Switzerland. Although Kenya is not known for its cheese, Brown’s Cheese Farm has been producing award-winning cheese in beautiful Tigoni for more than 30 years, just 30 minutes west of Nairobi. Visit the farm for a tour to see how the cheese is made, partake in a cheese tasting to sample a variety of cheeses, and have a three-course meal made exclusively from the organic garden on the property. For dedicated cheese fans, Brown’s also provides cheese-making classes.

  1.  6 Amazing Kenya Experiences : Dine in a Cave

Diani Beach is more well-known for its sandy beaches than for its caverns beneath the surface, although you may eat dinner here 33 feet below the surface. You descend into an old coral cave with a mouth overhead, providing breathtaking views of the night sky, to enter Ali Barbour’s Cave Restaurant (a pun on the well-known folktale “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves”). The current state of the cave, which is said to be between 120,000 and 180,000 years old, is filled with tables covered in linen and lighted by soothing candlelight. Among the specialties of the restaurant’s international menu are grilled barracuda and garlic prawns.
