Destination Guide to Kenya

Destination Guide to Kenya

Kenya will always hold a special place in my heart as it was one of my first international destinations at the start of my travel career. I mean, who hasn’t heard of the famous Masai Mara, one of the most well-protected havens for lions and cheetahs? And even beyond the Masai Mara, Kenya is filled with national reserves that are home to some of the most endangered wildlife on the planet.

Yet, beyond the wildlife lies a tribal culture that traces its roots back to the cradle of human civilization itself. And if you’re looking for city life, Nairobi is one of Africa’s most up and coming, bustling cities. And my personal favorite is the beach town of Mombasa where I experienced the most azure waters in an Indian Ocean that was bath-water warm, with sands so blinding white that I imagined I saw a camel being led by a boy along the beach one hot afternoon. It turns out it really was a camel!

With so many exciting things to explore, here are a just few of the top sites and experiences in the beautiful country of Kenya:

Always wanted to wake up to the mighty roar of a lion? Get transported into The Lion King? Kenya is the most popular safari destination in all of Africa. This beautiful country in the East of Africa is filled with 61 Kenya National Parks and National Reserves, covering 8% of the land. The difference between a park and a reserve is that parks only allow tourism and research while reserves allow for human activities such as firewood collection or fishing under specific regulated conditions.

Nestled in East Africa, in the Southwestern portion of Kenya that borders Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, the Masai Mara National Reserve (also known as the Maasai Mara) is Kenya’s most famous wildlife destination. The reserve is one of Africa’s highest density regions for predators, and its wide open grasslands and rising wildlife populations make it one of the best (and easiest) places in the world to spot game.
