Kenya Tourism

It is not for no reason that Kenya is one of the top destinations in Africa — it is jam-packed with beautiful and diverse landscapes, from a tropical coastline dotted with miles of white sand beaches and coral reefs, to spectacular national parks with endless opportunities for safaris.

Kenya also contains one of the most colourful arrays of tribal cultures anywhere in Africa. Kenya’s Rift Valley contains prehistoric fossils and other evidence that have continued to delight archaeologists all over the world, ever since Louis Leakey carried out his famous ‘digs’ in the area. Kenya is also one of the most tourist-friendly countries in Africa, despite the political tensions prevailing there.

Kenya is totally geared for the tourist with extensive tourist infrastructure that make it is wonders accessible, and friendly villagers in the countryside who will make your trip an enjoyable one.

The most powerful man in the world, US President Mr Barack Obama is of Kenyan descent. Though Barack Obama has never lived in Kenya his father was very much Kenyan. The Kenyans are justifiably very proud of this fact.

Sailing by ‘dhow’ is an experience not to be missed when in Kenya. Don’t do it if you intend to get anywhere in a hurry. On the other hand, if you are looking for that lazy, drifting boat ride experience, with nothing above you except a blue sky or the stars at night, the message is loud and clear—“GO BY DHOW”! If you are lucky, you may even be treated to an impromptu meal of grilled fish on the dhow, but generally it is a good idea to take drinking water and some food with you. Dhows can be boarded from Mombasa, Malindi and Lamu.
