Essentials in Kenya
Safaris: Kenya is home to the world's best game reserves where you can spot the best that Africa has to offer like lions, giraffes, elephants and more. The wildebeest migration from the Maasai Mara to the Serengeti in August/September is not to be missed.
Golf: Go figure right? Kenya is quickly becoming a very popular golf holiday destination. There are spectacular courses right outside major urban centres like Nairobi. Pick up a Kenya car hire and enjoy green fees as low as U$15 per round.
Ethnic tribes: Part of Kenya's draw is its diverse and varied ethnic tribes. In the north you can visit tribes that still live very traditionally, particularly near the Ethiopian border. In the west, try places like Wamba, Maralal, Baragoi and Korr for Kenyan culture.
