From wildlife safaris to mountain biking, the list of to do things in Kenya is long and exciting. Read on to learn about some of the country’s most tempting adventures waiting for travellers.




Spot the Big Five

The word ‘safari’ means ‘journey’ in Swahili (Kenya’s first language) so you know where it all started! There is no better place to spot the Big Five (elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard) than Kenya. Masai Mara, Amboseli National Park and Lake Nakuru National Park are the top places in Kenya where you can enjoy exciting wildlife Safaris. Beisa onyx, Somali ostrich, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe and long-necked gerenuk are other commonly found animals in Kenya.


Go Hot-Air Ballooning

Kenya’s wilderness is best enjoyed from the air. Take a hot-balloon ride over Masai Mara and you will definitely see a lot of action on the ground. This ride over the flat-topped acacia trees and rolling savannah forests, many a times, presents one with views of sun-bathing crocodiles, lions stalking preys, rhinos strolling in the grasslands and leopards relaxing on tree-tops. A hot-balloon ride in Kenya will leave you with infinite perspectives of the untamed jungle lands and wild animals that roam in herds and alone.


Take Cultural Trips

A quintessential Kenyan experience requires a peek into the life of some, if not all, local ancient tribes living here. You can visit the Masai tribe in the Mara region, the Turkana tribe in the Loyangalani region or the Swahili tribe in the Lamu region. Marsabit-Lake Turkana Festival is the best time to meet with locals from many Kenyan tribes at one place. This festival takes place early in the May.


Witness the Great Migration

Every year, during the period from July to October, more than a million wildebeest, and over 200,000 zebras cross the crocodiles’ dominated Mara River in search of food and water. The whole scene becomes like a party for the flesh eating animals and a nightmare for the crossing ones. It is estimated that more than 225,000 wildebeests and 30,000 zebra are killed on this journey.


Sail in a Dhow

A ‘dhow’ is a lateen-rigged wooden ship usually powered by air hitting its masts. Dhows have been in use along Kenya’s beautiful Indian Ocean coast for a long time. A ride in these wooden sailing vessels will take you back in time when journeys by boats used to be the only means of travel between two continents. Dhow journeys start from Lamu and pass through secluded coral islands, reefs and beaches. You can also spot varieties of fishes and other marine life during a dhow journey.
