  7. Ten memorable things to...

Kenya is a complex country with many rural and urban adventures. It is one of East Africa’s most popular tourist destinations. While wildlife is still the main attraction, Kenya has amazing Indian Ocean beaches, world-class mountain hiking, surprisingly good nightlife, and a varied cultural legacy.

Check out our list of 10 the Memorable things to do in Kenya:

Watch the Great Migration in Masai Mara

During the Great Migration, many wildebeest, antelope, and zebra converge on Masai Mara National Reserve from the Serengeti Plains, accompanied by predators. Game drives, plane or hot-air balloon flights, and walking or horseback safaris are all possible ways to see the show.

Time Trip in Mombasa’s Old Town

Kenya’s major port, founded by Swahili sultans in the 14th century, later became a Portuguese and British colonial stronghold. The Old Town, a maze of tiny alleyways lined by mosques, coffee shops, and homes with large wooden doors, has maintained ancient ways, means, and architecture. — The overall imposing presence of the 16th-century Fort Jesus.

Hit the Beach at Diani

One of Kenya’s main draws is its coastline, which is likely to be one of your favorite places the enjoy being near the water. Diani Beach is an Indian Ocean haven, having a white sand environment with azure tides and palms that make up the scene wonderfully.

This is a place you come to relax and unwind in Kenya and enjoy and indulge in little more than the breathtaking vistas, hammock swinging, and ocean swims.

Enjoy a Sunset Cruise on Lake Naivasha

The picturesque lake of Naivasha is located in the Rift Valley province close to Hells Gate National Park. A sunset cruise is a perfect way to photograph some fantastic birds and see local fishers sail by hippos searching for their food.

The photographs of the otherworldly-looking trees that emerge out of this massive freshwater oasis curiously are perhaps the greatest.

Visit Nakuru National Park

The pink flamingos of Lake Nakuru National Park are world-famous. Birds abound in Lake Nakuru, one of the Rift Valley’s soda lakes that span nearly a third of the park’s surface area. The views range from expansive grasslands along the lake’s edge to cliffs and woodland, making this a lovely site.

The largest euphorbia candelabrum forest in Africa is also protected within the park. These peculiar to the region towering, branching succulents add a dramatic texture to the arid environment.

Take a walk in  Nairobi.

If you are looking for something to do in Kenya that isn’t a safari, the country’s capital and largest metropolis will provide lots of options. Nairobi’s colorful colonial history is legendary.

In Nairobi, there are several exciting attractions to see. The Nairobi National Museum is an excellent one-stop-shop for displays on Kenyan history, natural history, culture, and modern art. Botanic gardens on the premises are also a hit with green thumbs.

Hike Mount Kenya

It’s Africa’s second-highest peak, and most hikers aim for the summit of Mount Kenya’s highest peak, and there are a variety of organized treks that take you there. The height and difficulty of this trek should be taken seriously, but the scenery and experience will be unforgettable if you accept the challenge.

Cycle in Hells Gate National Park

A bike safari at Hells Gate National Park is one of the beautiful things to indulge in Kenya if you want to get away from the crowd and experience a completely different safari. Getting up at sunrise to cycle by giraffes, warthogs, and zebras less than a meter distant is a great way to start the day in Kenya.

Admire the Desolate Beauty of Lake Turkana

Lake Turkana’s largest permanent desert lake is a fantastic off-the-beaten-path vacation for those who appreciate stark natural beauty.

The saline waters and barren coasts also happen to be home to the world’s most significant population of Nile crocodiles, which spawn in Central Island National Park among a colorful landscape that includes three active volcanoes.

Dance in the clubs of Nairobi

The stodgy colonial club culture in the capital city has given way to a bustling modern nightlife scene that rivals any other city on the continent. A heady mix of locals, ex-pats, and visitors quaff (and dance) the night away in the Westlands district and adjoining Waiyaki Way in the city’s northwest.
