The country of Kenya is located on the eastern side of the African contintenet, bordering on the Indian Ocean. This country is geographically diverse, containing savannahs, beaches, lakes, and mountain highlands. Animal lovers travel to Kenya to experience wildlife in their natural habitat, such as lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, and buffalo. 

Kenya boasts some beautiful mountainous landscapes, including Mount Kenya, and if you take a safari into the Amboseli National Park, you can see Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro, which reaches 5,896 meters into the sky. You can also check out the Great Rift Valley, which is a valley that extends 5,950 kilometers across the eastern part of Africa, through the Red Sea, and into Western Asia. The Great Rift Valley offers biodiversity and geological intrigue and is one of the few natural wonders seen from space. 

Kenya is also home to a colorful culture that prides itself on family, identity, and a sense of belonging. The idea of a nuclear family in Kenya expands to include aunts, uncles, and cousins. Like any other country, food is an important part of Kenyan culture. While traveling in Kenya, you can experience foods rich in bread, fried potatoes, eggs, rice, meat, fish, and vegetables. 

Because the country is so culturally diverse, there is no one signature dish that represents the country. Instead, you can expect to see chicken stews, chapati, and roasted beef. 

Top Sites to See in Kenya

Because of Kenya’s location in the African continent, it offers many opportunities for outdoor adventures and safaris. With such diverse geographical landscapes, you can spend a lot of time sightseeing in nature.

Nairobi National Park is considered “the World’s only Wildlife Capital.” It is located a short distance from Nairobi’s central business district, and it features wide open grass plains with a cityscape backdrop. 

Here, you can expect to see a wide variety of wildlife, including the endangered black rhino, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffaloes, giraffes, and very diverse birdlife. The park has several picnic sites, three campsites, and walking trails for hikers. 

Diani Beach

Diani Beach is a great water sports destination in Kenya. You can indulge in several different water sports, including kayaking, jet-skiing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, paddleboarding, and scuba diving. 

This pristine white beach is perfect for soaking up the sun and relaxing. Diani Beach is considered one of the best beaches in the world, so you don’t want to miss it. 

Hells Gate National Park

Hells Gate National Park was named for its intense geothermal activity. It’s an area within the Great Rift Valley and includes amazing scenery, including cliffs, water-gouged gorges, rock towers, scrub-clad volcanos, and plumes of geothermal steam.
