The best places to visit in Kenya
One of East Africa’s safari heavyweights, Kenya offers exceptional wildlife spotting opportunities in awe-inspiring surroundings. The vast Masai Mara teems with elephants, the surface of Lake Nakuru shimmers vivid pink with flamingos, while topping must-see list is the Great Wildebeest Migration, a phenomenon you’ll find nowhere else on the planet.

Sharing a border with Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, the vast grasslands that make up the Masa Mara are best known for the million-strong herds of wildebeest and zebra that thunder across the plains in search of food and water each year as part of the Great Migration. Come at any time to spot the Big Five (elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, buffalo) and look out for over 470 species of birds.
The sprawling metropolis of Nairobi, Kenya’s brazen capital, can be intimidating at first. But scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find a dynamic city, contrasting the traditional and the modern, with some excellent shops and fine restaurants, plus a thriving café culture and some diverting museums – try Karen Blixen’s House for an insight into the author’s life, or head to Nairobi National Park for a city centre safari.
