Here are the Top 10 Activities You Must Not Miss in Kenya, from game drives to mountaineering gorges to riding across a savanna full of wildlife.

Spot Black And White Rhinos at Lake Nakuru

Since black rhinos prefer to be alone and away from other animals and people, they are more difficult to spot. Fortunately, Lake Nakuru isn’t that large, and you’ll eventually come upon one.

At Lake Nakuru, white rhinos abound, and you’ll find them munching on grasses and bushes along the main road. Unlike their near relatives, the black rhinos, they are accustomed to humans and are not afraid of them.

Lake Naivasha

The Great Rift Valley’s highest point, Lake Naivasha, is a birder’s paradise. Here you can observe jacanas, African fish eagles, white-fronted bee-eaters, and various species of kingfishers.
