Kenya is a beautiful country synonymous with Safari. See fascinating and beautiful places that will make you want to visit Kenya.
1. Masai Mara National Reserve
Wanna get close to the wild? Massai Mara is the place to be!! If you want to see wildlife up-close and personal, Masaai Mara is a great safari destination for that. The National Reserve is teeming with the ‘big 5’ and other amazing animal species. Nature, wonderful wildlife and picturesque landscape can all be found here. Its natural beauty keeps guests returning every year.
2. Great Rift Valley
The Great Rift Valley is a beauty to behold and the top tourist attraction in Kenya. Here, you will find some of the largest, deepest and oldest lakes in the world. The valley also hosts some volcanic mountains. The valley offers stunning views and you will surely see many photo-worthy panoramas.
3. Amboseli National Park
Amboseli is where you will come face to face with the largest land animal, the African Elephant, as they leisurely graze on the plains with Mount Kilimanjaro as a unique backdrop! Weighing in at anything up to six tonnes and standing 4 metres high, the opportunity to observe a full herd is a rare and overwhelming experience. The park is the permanent residence of over 900 of these graceful creatures – and has become internationally acclaimed as the perfect place to observe the intricacies of their behaviour. The rest of the Big Five are also equally at home at Amboseli – you will get to see lions, buffalo, leopards and even the critically endangered black rhino.
4. Mount Kenya
Mount Kenya is the highest mountain in Kenya and the second-highest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro. The highest peaks of the mountain are Batian (5,199 metres (17,057 ft)), Nelion (5,188 metres (17,021 ft)) and Point Lenana (4,985 metres (16,355 ft)). Mount Kenya is located in central Kenya, the heart of Kenya, about 16.5 kilometres (10.3 mi) south of the equator, around 150 kilometres (93 mi) north-northeast of the capital Nairobi. Mount Kenya is the source of the name of the Republic of Kenya.
5. Ngong Hills
For those of us who love nature, there is nothing better than a scenic nature trail, surrounded by lush green environs. For Kenyans, the Ngong hills are a well known picnic destination. For any visitor, you can come here and enjoy the tranquility that only a country content with itself can offer.
6. Nairobi Mamba Village
Just like Giraffe Center, the Nairobi Mamba Village is where you go see crocodiles. Unlike at the Giraffe Center, you do not want to get a kiss from one of these creatures. You can watch them get fed, and you can have your choice of game meat. The Village also has some great accommodation facilities.
7. Lake Nakuru National Park
The park also protects the largest euphorbia candelabrum forest in Africa. These tall branching succulents are endemic to the region and provide an interesting textural element to the arid landscapes.
