Kenya has some of the best hunting reserves in the world where you can go on safari and see some of Africa’s finest species of flora and fauna. The parks are famous for lions, giraffes, elephants and huge herds of zebra, wildebeest and buffalo. It is advisable to seek out tour operators before choosing one to see what is currently on offer, who you are friendly with and get a competitive price.
The annual wildebeest migration (from the Maasai Mara to the Serengeti) is a breathtaking spectacle and is best experienced on a balloon safari. Reservations to attend the migration should be made months in advance at best due to the high demand and limited accommodation in the Mara. Migration takes place in August and September.
Kenya is also a prime destination for beach holidays, with several along the coastal regions and the city of Mombasa. Other coastal towns worth visiting are Lamu and Malindi.
Kenya is also becoming a holiday destination for golfers, with an abundance of beautiful courses around major urban areas. Entrance fees range from $15 to $40 per round, plus $5 to $7 for the caddy.
Northern Kenya is home to spectacular tribes who lead a very traditional way of life. You can meet these remarkable societies near and around the main road leading to northern Ethiopia (the A2 which passes through Marsabit and leads to Moyale on the Ethiopian border), as well as to the west of it in places like Wamba, Maralal, Baragoi, Korr, Kargi, South Horr, and so on.
