Attractions from Kenya

Beaches (Kenya)
Lamu Island has fantastic beaches. Next to Shela is a lovely, long sand beach with big waves. One can also go on a dhow-tour and combine the beach walk with a tasty barbecue.
Karen Blixens farm (Kenya)
It was on this farm near Nairobi that Karen Blixen found the inspiration for the book Out of Africa, that later became a hit film starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. Today, the farm is a museum that preserves the memory of the baroness's time in Africa.
Lake Victoria (Kenya)
Lake Victoria is situated in western Kenya. The 70.000-km2 lake is 100 metres deep and is a wonderful natural phenomenon. It is only possible to sail from Kisumu to the southern towns in Kenya. Even though Lake Victoria borders on Uganda and Tanzania, it is not possible to sail to these countries.
Mount Kenya (Kenya)
There are many wild animals like leopards, buffalo and elephants in the area. Furthermore there are13 different indigenous plants types to be found on Mount Kenya.
Samburu (Kenya)
A characteristic sight at Samburu is the beautiful Oryx Antelope. Oryx Antelopes have distinctive black and white markings.
The East Coast beaches (Kenya)
Along Kenya's East Coast one finds the most stunning beaches, where shade-giving palms sway in the breeze. A coral reef runs along the coast, it is not only beautiful but it also performs the fortunate function of keeping the sharks away! This insures that it is safe to swim in these waters.
Lamu Museum (Lamu Island)
Spending a few hours at the Lamu Museum is a brilliant introduction to Swahili culture. The museum has a reconstruction of an original Swahili house; one can also see an example of a beautifully carved elephant's horn that is a wind instrument.
Matodoni town (Lamu Island)
The Great Trek (Masai Mara National Reserve)
During July and August over 2.000.000 zebras, antelopes and gazelles trek over to the eastern part of Masai Mara. They come from the Serengetti plains in Tanzania and are driven to the more fertile plains in Kenya. Around October the animals come together again and begin the journey back west.
The Masai Folk (Masai Mara National Reserve)
The beautiful Masai people live on Kenya's plains. The proud Masai folk are under threat of western influence, despite this they strive to bring their age-old traditions into the twenty-first century. It is important that these people are treated with respect, for example: remember to ask before taking photographs.
