Hidden coastal coves and exotic colonial hideaways are just a few things this fascinating country has to offer. There's more to Kenya than just the greatest wildlife show on earth. Whether you're looking to bask on the beach or make friends with an elephant, Kenya is waiting to be discovered.
Kenya's coastline offers 500 kilometres of tranquil Indian Ocean waters and glorious powder white sands. From the pretty 14th Century town of Kilifi on the north coast, which boasts some of the best beaches in the country, to the bustling resorts on the southern coast which offer unparalleled scuba diving, kite surfing and deep sea fishing Kenya is a beach paradise and is the perfect honeymoon destination.
Many visitors start their journey in the heartland of Kenya, the capital city of Nairobi, before heading out to take their chances on some big game viewing in any of the 59 National Parks. Kenya is all about the Safari; in fact the Kenyan's pretty much invented it. 'Safari' means 'Journey' in Kiswahili and you would find it tricky not to stumble upon one of the National Parks or conservancies during a trip to Kenya.
