  7. 7 Adventurous Vacation Places...

Kenya’s tourism industry has relied heavily on wildlife safaris for decades, and the country continues to benefit from their popularity. However, apart from the wildlife safaris, there are other magnificent things to look forward to, like as cultural richness, breathtaking scenery, excellent trekking, and beaches of world-class quality.

Here are 7 Adventurous Vacation Places in Kenya

Maasai Mara National Reserve

Maasai Mara is a world-famous tourist site that draws visitors from all over the world every year to see the annual wildebeest migration. The game reserve, which is located in southwest Kenya, is one of the most famous reserves in Africa. There is a large variety of places to stay near the Maasai Mara and within the conservancies of the reserve. Aside from game drives, expect hot air balloon rides, nature hikes, photographic safaris, and cultural encounters.

The Diani Beach

Diani Beach, a popular beach resort on Kenya’s Indian Ocean coast, is located about an hour south of Mombasa. Diani’s dazzling white sands and rich nature encourage you to unwind with a cool drink under a beach umbrella. For recreation, you can go on a camel ride or take an inland bike tour to see life in surrounding towns.

Giraffe Manor

The Safari Collection owns Giraffe Manor, an elite boutique hotel. Frequently referred to as one of the world’s most Instagrammed properties. This unique location is in Nairobi’s Langata area. Giraffe Manor will provide you with interaction with giraffes, horseback riding, a visit to the giraffe center, and, most importantly, the opportunity to share breakfast with giraffes.

National Park of Nairobi

Nairobi National Park, approximately 7 kilometers from the heart of the capital, is the world’s first game reserve and the first protected area to be located so near to a national capital. The park’s main attraction is its noble black rhinos.

National Park of Aberdare

The scenery at Aberdare National Park includes steep, wooded ravines and open moorland. This gorgeous national park is located in Kenya’s central region and attracts people looking for more than just a safari.


Elephants, black rhinos, leopards, spotted hyenas, olive baboons, black and white colobus monkeys, buffalos, warthogs, and bushbucks are among the animals that call the park home. The Giant Forest Hog, bongo, golden cat, serval cat, African wild cat, African civet cat, and blue duiker are rare.


Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park is a tourist hotspot in Kenya, and with good reason: Africa’s tallest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, towers over the park’s landscape. Amboseli is the best place in Africa to get up close and personal with large herds of elephants. Nature lovers can go through five distinct ecosystems, from the arid bed of Lake Amboseli through wetlands with sulfur springs, the savannah, and the woods.


Watamu serves as a convenient base from which to explore the northern shore, and the Italian culture has had such an impact on the area that many of the people are fluent in Italian. Many eateries serve pasta, pizza, and gelato, and some street signs are in Italian.

Visit the marine parks for diving or snorkeling, the Saturday night celebrations at Papa Remo Beach Restaurant, and the dramatic canyons at Marafa Hell’s Kitchen.

Sign up for drunken sunset cruises along Mida Creek, kite surf at Che Shale, or see humpback whales weighing up to 30 tons hurl themselves into the air before landing a few feet away from your boat in October.

Watamu Has a airstrip which make it easy for tourist to fly directly from JKIA. You can check out our article on Flying in East Africa: all you need to know
