Kenya is a hugely diverse country. From mountain lakes and world-class national parks to stunning coastline, it is the perfect country if you want to feel like you’ve seen a lot of East Africa in just a couple of weeks.
It’s also one of the best budget friendly countries, if you’ve got small pockets and want to still get amazing sights and wild animals adventure. Kenyan people are some of the friendliest in the world.
As a tourist, you can start your Kenya itinerary in the nation’s capital – after all, it’s the city you’re most likely to be flying into, given its excellent global connections. Nairobi is a bustling metropolis, you might be surprised to find how developed it is and rest assured there’s more than enough to occupy you for at least a day.
Choose from day trips to Bomas of Kenya, Nairobi National Park, the Giraffe Centre or the David Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary if you want to get stuck straight into some wildlife.
Otherwise the budget-friendly Maasai market, National Museum, Kenya Railways Museum or free Uhuru Park Gardens and City Markets are great options for those looking to save their pennies.
