Kenya – Things to do

Kenya Attractions

No words can do it justice. You’ve got to see Kenya – Africa’s safari capital – for yourself to appreciate its wild and natural beauty. Seeing the Big Five in the world-famous Masai Mara – established as a wildlife sanctuary in 1948 – is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Let’s not overlook Kenya’s tropical coastline either, with some of the most stunning beaches on Earth.

The Great Annual Migration

Watch the Masai Mara Migration

At the top of a lot of people’s bucket lists is the annual migration of the Masai Mara’s wildebeest, zebra and antelope, which is known as the “Greatest Show on Earth”. Over 1.5 million wildebeest, thousands of gazelle and zebra migrate over the Serengeti plains to reach the grasslands in Kenya.

Be dazzled by safaris

Head out on a jeep and enjoy the jaw dropping scenery and diverse wildlife across one of Kenya’s 40 safari parks. Hear the call of exotic birds, watch huge prides of lions basking in the sunshine with their cubs or watch larger than life hippos yawning in the Great Rift Valley.

Maasai Tribe, Kenya

Learn the tribal culture

The Masai Mara National Reserve is home to the semi-nomadic Masai people and to really experience their culture, why not include a trip out to one of their tribal villages? The tribes are open, kind and welcoming to outsiders, making it the perfect way to get to understand a new way of life.

Relax on beautiful beaches

If safaris aren’t your game, we recommend spending your Keyna holidays retreating to the south coast where pristine and soft white sandy beaches await. Visit Diani Beach, a cove filled with natural beauty and gorgeous coral reefs, perfect for snorkelling or diving. Or soak up the beach life of Mombasa and enjoy that warm sunshine and sparkling sea.

Discover the History of Lamu Old Town

Located on Lamu Island, this historic and quaint town is perfect for long weekends and quiet getaways. Surrounded by pristine beaches and offering a vibrant culture, the closed courtyards and intricately carved doorways offer a lovely labyrinth to get lost in while you soak up the history of the area.

Explore the Gede ruins

If you want to double down on historical sites, the Gede Ruins are worth a visit. Built 1,000 years ago during the Ottoman rule, these ancient buildings lie on the Kenyan shore and offer an amazing insight into ancient Africa. Nestled amongst the baobab trees, it’s an idyllic retreat into the forest filled with trails and friendly locals. These ruins are also home to a local population of monkeys that are always a hit with any visitors.

Come face to face with giraffes and baby elephants

No visit to Kenya would be complete without a stopover at the Elephant Orphanage. Home to adorable baby elephants, visitors can watch them bathe and play with each other as they would in the wild. From there you can wander along the treetop walkway and watch the endangered Rothchild’s Giraffe in an intimate setting.

Dine at the famous Carnivore Grill

Serving up Nyama Choma, Kenya’s most famous barbecued meat, Carnivore has been an iconic location for visitors for over 25 years. With huge barbecue pits roasting an assortment of local delicacies and game meat, you won’t be going home hungry after a night here. Pair this with their excellent selection of wines for the ultimate indulgence.
