Kenya is one of the most distinct and stunning countries on the continent of Africa, offering the perfect mix of city life, relaxing beaches, dense forests and wildlife to explore to your heart’s content. Although Kenya may not be your typical choice for a holiday destination, there are several awesome reasons to consider visiting this beautiful African country at least once in your life. Boasting sustainable tourism, freely roaming wildlife, iconic landmarks, gorgeous weather and a never-ending list of possibilities when it comes to things to do, here are some of the top reasons to put visiting Kenya on your bucket list.

Reason #1. City Life:

Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, makes for the perfect base for your trip, offering a huge range of things to see and do from shopping to dining or even going on safari. Nairobi is a unique city in so many different ways; there’s a national park located right in the city and just half an hour from the city centre, you can have breakfast with giraffes! Foodies will wonder at the sheer amount of choice when it comes to dining; whether you’re looking for traditional Kenyan cuisine or want to sample extravagant cocktails, the capital city has it all. You can also book day tours in Nairobi with African Sermon Safaris who are one of the most widely used tour providers, with options for further exploring the city or travelling further into Kenya.

Reason #2. Stunning Wildlife:

If you are an animal lover, then a trip to Kenya will be an unforgettable experience for you. Both the city of Nairobi and many areas across Kenya are home to national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and conservation centres, thanks to their globally recognised wildlife conservation system, which means that you could even spot some rare endangered species alongside big cats, giraffes, zebras, elephants, and more. If you enjoy bird watching then Kenya is the place to be; the lakes and wetlands of the Great Rift Valley are home to some of the most beautiful and diverse species of birds in the world.

Reason #3. Awesome Cultures:

For those who enjoy not just learning about, but also experiencing different and diverse cultures around the world, Kenya is a must-visit. Visitors to Kenya can choose from a range of interesting cultural tours, which will offer you a personal experience with the Samburu, Maasai, Turkana, Swahili and many other tribal people and groups in the country. Visitors can enjoy authentic village visits, where you can even get involved with some cultural traditions and ceremonies of the native tribes whilst getting to know the people and discovering what their day to day lives are like.

Reason #4. Relax and Unwind:

Away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi, Kenya’s islands and coastline make up some of the most beautiful areas of the country. With the stunning turquoise blue Indian Ocean lapping onto gleaming white sandy shores, small islands off the coast of Kenya offer the perfect destination for relaxing and winding down amongst quiet, peaceful nature.
