Kenya is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The country has it all, from white sandy beaches, wildlife, desert to a lush greenly vegetation. No matter your taste, you will find your desired destination within the borders of this lovely nation. To get you started, here are the 70 best destinations in all of Kenya:

  1. Mt. Kenya

It’s more sensible that we start with the best factor in the country. Mt. Kenya is 5,199m of sheer beauty. if you need to look an array of vegetation and fauna, merged with freezing weather, and snow capped peaks, then this is the area to move. Scaling it’s far a chunk of a chore, but it’s miles absolutely really worth it!

  1. Nairobi

After the best point, we go to the capital town, Nairobi. once dubbed because the ‘city inside the sun’, Nairobi is one of the most beautiful towns inside the continent. It has superb skyscrapers, a steaming nightlife and a by no means-finishing sea of friendly humans. As a urbanized town, you can discover a little little bit of the whole thing the world has to provide right here.

  1. Nairobi National Park

Situated just 20 minutes from the city, Nairobi National Park is one of the most eclectic parks Kenya has to offer. The park has such a widely varied wildlife population that simply visiting it will give you a small taste of what the rest of the country has to offer.

  1. Nairobi West

This is a busy suburb 10 minutes from the CBD. Nairobi West is Kenya’s version of New York, the city that never sleeps. Nairobi West has a very high concentration of bars, restaurants, lodging facilities and most of the city’s night owls. If you like to stay up all night, visit Nairobi West and party with your own kind.

  1. Westlands

This is a ‘richer’ version of Nairobi West! Westlands almost never shuts down. This little suburb, less than 10 minutes from the CBD, is not only very affluent, but it is also the one place to go if you want to see Kenya’s fashionistas. Here you will find all sorts of high end bars, hotels, and restaurants. It is also steaming with the bourgeoisie.

This is your chance to stand eyeball to eyeball with a Giraffe. At the Giraffe center in Nairobi, you get to feed, play with and even get a kiss from these towering creatures.

  1. Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages

If you know anything about the history of Kenya, you have probably heard the name ‘Karen Blixen’ before. She was a white settler who struggled for the rights of the local community against tyrannical colonial forces. In her honor, the country named an entire suburb after her. Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages is just one of the attractions found within that suburb.

  1. Karen Blixen Museum

This is particularly interesting to those who are fascinated by Karen Blixen’s story. The author of ‘Out of Africa’, lived in this house that has now been turned into a museum. Here, you will get a chance to sit, touch and see what Karen saw when she lived in Kenya.
