5 places to visit in Kenya

Masai Mara National Reserve
It’s a hard reality after visiting the Mara that no other wildlife parks you visit will ever live up to the Masai Mara. Going on Safari is a little like buying lottery – there’s no telling what might happen when you enter, but when you do hit the jackpot, it can be quite magical. There’s no place in world that compares to the ferocious circle of life that unfolds in front of your very own eyes. This can be seen when the great wildebeest migration makes its way through the Masai Mara. Lions wait patiently waiting in the long thick grass for the moment a million wildebeest migrate thorough there path, This when the predators pounce and indulge on the vast group of prey. The Mara is a vast tract of savannah, dotted with shady acacias trees acting like a natural umbrella and divided by winding rivers. The vast openness of the Mara makes it wildlife spotting heaven, But the trick is to not go out looking for the big five- Elephant, lion, Buffalo, rhino and leopards, Instead take in the diversity of nature on show. You might be lucky to come across a heard of Elephants or a endangered Wild Dog. Sadly with most of Africa the Masai Mara is struggling with the decline of many species that wonder the Mara.

Amboseli National park
The Masai Mara might be famous for the great Wildebeest migration but Amboseli holds the throne for being the best place to see elephants roaming in the wild. Another part of the appeal for tourist to visit Amboseli is the stunning backdrop of Africa’s highest mountain. mount Kilimanjaro’s towering presence overs a stunning backdrop for every photo you take. Amboseli which has managed to avoid most of kenya’s elephant poaching crises over the years to a growing number of the big tuckers which has put Aboseli on the map of places to come a see elephants in the wild.

Mt Kenya
Sometimes its better to be second. Africa’s second highest peak behind Mt Kilimanjaro. Kili hogs the crowds due to its ‘tallest’ status but this take anything away from Mt Kenya. Due to glaciation over the millennia has left Mt Kenya with a thrilling variety of valleys and jagged peaks. once you’ve navigated your way to the top then you’re rewarded with a stunning view of Kenya below. Standing at 17,057 ft Mt Kenya is definitely a thing of beauty and a African wonder.

The Coast
The coast of Kenya is a beautiful place. Filled with colour which explodes in infant of your very eyes. With so much diversity on offer, from the hustle and bustle and the Arabic spice of Mombasa to the quite and relaxed town of Diani. Visit Mombasa and explore the old port city with a strong Arabic history or indulge in the many different delicacy on offer throughout the city and many different restaurants and bars to visit. You cant go to Mombasa and not visit the amazing beaches.The crystal clear blue waters are ideal for a day sitting on the white sands drinking Tusker and enjoying the warm weather Mombasa has to offer. After a long day on the beach we me and a few friends usually headed to the many bars Mombasa has to offer. Further up the coast you have Kilifi and Watamu. Both relaxed and chilled and life seems to drift by slowly in these towns. With white beaches and crystal clear waters you can see why life is so chilled in these parts. Further down south from Mombasa you have the town of Diani. Diani is different to the other beach towns in Kenya. It is more developed, with serval more tourist coming to Diani than compared to the north coast. There plenty to do in Diani such as snorkelling, scuba diving and kite surfing. Diani is more of the party town compared to the other ocean towns. Visit the Forty thieves bar which is located is right on the beach and is the perfect spot to have a few drinks and watch the sun set. The bar is very chilled and they play all types of music. If you’ve got the energy to party all night you will part until you are greeted with the most amazing sun rise over the Indian ocean. I

Lake Victoria
Lake Victoria, the largest of the Great African Lakes and the second largest freshwater lake in the world. Located on the western frontier of Kenya, the lake is only a one-hour flight from Nairobi to Kisumu and a 40-minute flight from Maasai Mara, making it a convenient option for your safari plans with AfricanMecca.If you are ready to catch your own world class lake game fish and take home some serious bragging rights, Lake Victoria is the place for you. The challenge of hooking a colossal and eventually reeling in a 300-pound, six-foot Nile perch. These fish, along with tilapia, make Lake Victoria a discerning angler’s paradise. Top things to do around Lake Victoria include guided boat rides and a visit to Mfangano Island, which hosts diverse bird species.
