Places to go in Kenya
Read about the highlights of this incredible country in our short summary guides to the main places to go.
The Masai Mara is one of the world’s most famous safari destinations. The diverse wildlife provides excellent game viewing, and some say it’s the jewel in Kenya’s crown.
Naivasha, Nakuru & the Rift Valley
The freshwater and soda lakes of Kenya’s Rift Valley offer dramatic scenery, a chance for relaxation, and some usual features such as steaming hot springs and, of course, wildlife.
Kenya Coast & Lamu
The Kenyan coast is a fabulous place to chill out on gorgeous beaches, swim in the Indian Ocean, and enjoy Swahili food, hospitality and culture.
In northern Kenya, the Laikipia Plateau, west of Mount Kenya, is now recognised as a stellar safari destination with a diverse choice of wildlife conservancies such as the famous Ol Pejeta and Lewa.
Samburu & Northern Kenya
Wildlife in Kenya’s arid northern parks is not as prolific as in the south, but it’s still special, particularly with the dramatic scenery as a backdrop.
Amboseli National Park
With a backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli is home to large herds of elephants, wildebeest, zebra, impala and over 400 species of birds.
Tsavo & Chyulu Hills
Tsavo is one of Africa’s largest reserves, a haven for elephants. Nearby Chyulu Hills is great for horse riding and walking safaris, all the while enjoying iconic views across to Kilimanjaro.
There are some great places to visit in Nairobi – such as the national park or Sheldrick’s Wildlife Orphanage - so a night or two can be interesting even though most people just pass through.
Meru National Park
Meru National Park is Kenya at its most wild and beautiful, and it’s still off the mainstream tourist trail. This is where Elsa, the orphaned lioness hand-reared by the Adamsons, was released into the wild.
