A Few Words about Kenya

Kenya is a country of wildlife, national parks, soda lakes, and dormant volcanoes. This is a surprisingly well-balanced combination of the primordial past and civilized present.

It is the best place to get a feel for the unique culture and unwind. Kenyan national parks with wild animals, underwater springs, soda lakes in the Great Rift Valley, and snowy mountain peaks made the country famous.

Besides, beaches with white sand, sky-blue ocean, palm trees and other tropical plants have turned Kenya into a perfect vacation spot. Challenge the African wildlife together with our experts – challenge yourselves!

Advice from the Expert

William Davis

Credit Cards

Credit cards can only be used in the country’s large cities. If you are going to a nature reserve, ensure your comfort by bringing cash.

William Davis

Public Transport

The city transport is well-developed only in Nairobi and Mombasa. In smaller towns, people mostly use matatus. These are shared taxis usually painted bright. One such ride will enrich your impression of Kenya and its citizens.

William Davis

Malaria

This is serious; a malaria mosquito can bite anyone. Having arrived in Kenya, purchase insect repellents: our products have zero effect on Kenyan mosquitoes; you have to buy local ones. There are bracelets, patches, sprays – anything will do, use whatever you find.

William Davis

Tips

In Kenya, you can – and should – give tips. Any person who has delivered your luggage, brought food at a restaurant, driven you to your destination expects a reward.

This quiet place is home to over 350 bird species and 1,200 animal species." The 8-story tower fits into the untouched landscape so easily that it can be mistaken for a yellow acacia.

William Davis

Lake Nakuru

Lake Nakuru

Another Kenyan lake/national park. It is famous for accommodating a flock of 1 million pink flamingos (sometimes, their number reaches 2 million). The magnificent scene is best enjoyed from a bird's-eye view: the shores of Nakuru are covered with nothing but pink flamboyance. Among the flamingos, zebras and rhinos roam the shores of the lake. The bird population is thoroughly protected and preserved.

The Great Rift Valley

The Great Rift Valley

One of the country's major natural landmarks spanning Lake Naivasha, Lake Elmenteita, Lake Turkana and Lake Bogoria.

Lake Victoria

Lake Victoria

Lake Victoria, or Nyanza in Swahili, is the planet's second largest fresh water body and Africa's largest lake. Victoria gives life to the planet's lengthiest river: the Nile starts here and flows from the East African Plateau to the north, to the Mediterranean Sea. The shores of this large water body connect three countries: Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

Mount Elgon

Mount Elgon

The extinct volcano on the border of Uganda and Kenya; Africa's fourth highest mountain situated to the northeast of Lake Victoria. Mount Elgon is surrounded from all sides by hardly passable, 4,000m-high peaks. The volcano was named after the ancient tribe of Elgonyi that once populated the caves on the mountain's southern slopes. The Maasai call the volcano "Ol Doinyo Ilgoon" (or "Masawa") which means "a woman's breast". This is the best place to make splendid photos of Mount Kilimanjaro. In Amboseli National Park, one can drive very close to the grazing elephants. Here, one can see African elephants, rhinos, buffalos, impalas, lions, cheetahs, hyenas, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest and many other animals.

Ali Barbour's Cave Restaurant

Ali Barbour's Cave Restaurant

Ali Barbour's Cave Restaurant in Kenya is located inside a cave that does not feel like an enclosed space. The truth is that the establishment has an open roof which makes it look roomier and especially charming. Besides, when looking up one can enjoy the view of the starry sky. The restaurant is designed in the African style; there are numerous romantic lanterns.

River Cafe

River Cafe

The cafe offers an unparalleled view of Karura Forest. Watching the birds or monkeys swinging from branch to branch while you are enjoying your iced latte might make you forget that you are in a bustling city. The menu comprises a mouthwatering selection of omelets and steaks but you can also opt for a light lunch. Cobb salad is definitely worth trying. Numerous vegetarian dishes are also available.
