Whether you want glorious white sand beaches with amazing snorkelling and diving opportunities, or world class safaris across incredible landscapes jampacked with unique wildlife, Kenya has it all.

This east African gem is one of the easiest destinations in the region to travel, with great access via its international airport, simple connections around the country, an English-speaking population and more epic travel experiences than you’ll know what to do with!

For those on a short time, starting in the capital Nairobi, before heading out to some of the nearby wildlife reserves, is the best way to go.

The famous Masai Mara is just a few hour’s drive from the capital and Lake Naivasha, Hells Gate National Park and Nakuru National Park are also all within easy reach.

For those with a bit longer to explore, the magnificent Amboseli National Park with its huge elephant population and Mount Kilimanjaro backdrop, is a must.
As is nearby Tsavo National Park – you just need to choose between the east or west parts!

And then of course, there’s Kenya’s Indian Ocean coastline.

A fascinating mix of cultures and cuisine, not to mention some of the most breath-taking beaches in the world, this area is a must-see in Kenya too.

Don’t miss white sand Diani Beach, riverside Kilifi or the alluring charm of Lamu in the north.

Wherever you choose to go, one thing is for sure, Kenya’s charm will immediately grab you.
