Reasons why Kenya should not miss on your bucket list : When you go to Kenya on a safari, there is so much to see and do. As one of the most popular places to visit in Africa, it has a lot of the best things the continent has to offer. This place has everything from world-class cities and fascinating culture to different kinds of wildlife, plants, and flora that will surprise and charm every tourist.
Kenya will make you fall in love.
Kenya makes people feel small when they go there. If you call a safari to this African country just a vacation, you’re underestimating how it will change you. When you visit “the cradle of civilization,” as it is sometimes called, you will feel a spiritual connection that will last. Some people fall in love at the first look. Kenya is a dream spot for travelers from all over the world. It has everything from the Rift Valley and Lake Naivasha to the busy city of Nairobi and beaches with white sand that flow into the clear Indian Ocean.
Kenya has one of the best conservation programs in the world. The Masai Mara, one of the most famous wildlife areas, is part of one of the countries many national parks and game reserves. At certain times of the year, a luxury tent camp set up here will hear the feet of millions of animals as they start the Great Annual Migration. If you haven’t seen this animal show, you should put the Masai Mara at the top of your list of places to visit on a Kenya safari.
Contrast beautiful beaches with wild safaris
After going on game drives to see lions, antelope, and elephants, visiting Maasai villages, and flying in a hot air balloon across the grassland, spend some time looking at the Indian Ocean’s vast beauty and sharp, blue waters. Kenya has a lot more to offer than just seeing wildlife. It has beautiful beaches, clear waters that are great for water sports, and laid-back beach resorts, like the Voyager Beach Resort on Nyali Beach, which is one of Kenya’s most famous beach spots.
National parks of Kenya.
Kenya offers some of the finest landscape in East Africa, including Samburu National Park, the stunning setting for the film Born Free; Amboseli National Park, 160 miles from Nairobi, offering distinctive safaris and cultural encounters with local Masai tribespeople, in a region teeming with elephants, zebra, giraffe, plus pelicans, flamingoes and ostrich; you could spend days exploring the birdlife heaven of Meru National Park, or the mountain peaks and extinct volcanoes of Tsavo National Park. Then there is Malindi Marine National Park & Reserve, its lagoons, reefs, and coral gardens inviting you to aquatic adventures to see turtles and dolphins.
The beach city on Kenya’s coast is a great place to watch people because it has a lot of Arabic, Swahili, Asian, and European culture. Culture fans will love the Swahili street food and the smell of nyama choma (grilled meats) coming from the grill as traditional Taarab music plays in the background. Check out the buildings in Old Town before heading back to the beach to enjoy the soft sand, snorkel or just rest with a sundowner or two.
All tourists agree on one thing: the people of Kenya are one of the country’s best features. There are more than 40 different tribes living here. Some of them are the Kikuyu, Kamba, Somali, Meru, Mijikenda, and Masai. In Kenya, many people speak English, but the word you’ll hear most often is “hakuna matata,” which means “no worries.” Swahili, which is a mix of Arabic and Bantu from Africa, means “coast.” Kenya is surrounded by Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, and Sudan. Its culture is rarely talked about, but it is a memorable part of any trip there.
When you go on a safari in Kenya, you can see all kinds of amazing wildlife. On a fly-in safari, you could go looking for rhinos in Samburu National Reserve, then sip Champagne in a hot air balloon over the Masai Mara, and then watch in awe as a group of elephants walks past your luxury camp. It’s pretty amazing how many life-changing events a person can have on a single safari.
Luxury safari lodges.
After a dirty, hot game drive, you should never underestimate how magical a luxury safari camp can be. Like a scene from a Hollywood movie, you’ll have all the creature comforts you need. You’ll eat dinner under the wide night sky, with the campfire burning, and listen to the sounds of the wildlife around you. Governors Camp is right on the banks of the Mara River. It is a great place to stay if you want to see wildlife and the beautiful wildebeest migrate Mount Kenya.
Mount Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa. At 17,057 feet, it is a beautiful sight. Even though it was made by eruptions, geologists will be sad to hear that the last one happened two million years ago. The mountain is right on top of the equator, and the sun rises and sets every day at 5:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Here, people from four different groups live, and each tribe thinks that the mountain is God’s throne on Earth.
Best time to visit Kenya.
In July, the Great Annual Migration comes to the Masai Mara lands. From about the middle of June to the end of October, it is dry. During this time, animals crowd around watering holes, making them easier to spot. Kenya, on the other hand, is a place you can visit any time of the year.
