With astonishing landscapes from snow-topped mountains, through lush forests and on to the sunniest of beaches, Kenya has something for everyone. You can’t talk about Kenya without mentioning the wildlife and its conservation, and not taking the time for a safari here means you are truly missing out. Explore Nairobi National Park, right on the city outer limits, or try something a little more gentle with the Nairobi Safari Walk. If turtles and fish are more your thing then visit Malindi Marine National Park, or try one or more of the many reserves and sanctuaries, for donkeys, giraffes, the Endangered Species Enclosure, the Chimpanzee sanctuary, and more. Kenya has a must-see National Museum; Fort Jesus is a Unesco World Heritage Site with metre thick walls, early graffiti and frescoes to die for. Visit Lamu Museum for an insight into Swahili culture, the Go-Down Arts Centre or the German Post Office Museum for something a little different, or the archaeological fascination of the Olorgasailie Prehistoric Site. When you’re done, you still have those fabulous beaches on which to take a well-deserved rest.
