Bucket list experiences in Kenya
Bucket List Experiences in Kenya
Ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Welcome to Kenya. From the gorgeous coast to the vast savanna, this East African country is an unforgettable escape. It’s one place in Africa you won’t want to miss; it is the ultimate safari destination and one of my new favorite corners of the world.
Stay at Giraffe Manor
I’ve been to a lot of amazing boutique hotels around the world, but nothing compares to this place. With endangered giraffes roaming around the luxury, vintage property, Giraffe Manor has an otherworldly beauty.
Stay at Cottars 1920s Safari Camp
The first tented safari in Africa, this 1920s-inspired camp is at the heart of the Maasai community and has a stunning view of the Kenyan savannah. It’s the perfect base for exploring the vast Olderikesi Wildlife Conservancy and seeing local wildlife in their natural habitat.
Incredibly preserved and sitting on top of 140 acres of land, this place is like stepping into a dream.
East Africa’s most cosmopolitan city, Kenya’s capital is an essential stop. The great museums, galleries, and markets of Nairobi will give you a fascinating glimpse into Kenyan culture.
It’s also where Kenya’s largest airport, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, is located, so it’s a good starting point.
See Flamingos at Lake Bogoria
Late autumn is far from the only time to visit Kenya. From August to early October, you’ll find an incredible gathering of flamingos at Lake Bogoria. If you’ve ever wanted to get started with drone photography, there is no better place to be.
Discover the Serengeti
Spanning from north Tanzania to southwestern Kenya, the Serengeti is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa and the Ten Natural Travel Wonders of the World. It is home to the largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world, and this place will blow you away.
Helpful Tip: I recommend visiting Kenya between September and December for the Great Migration. Two million wildebeests, zebras, and antelopes migrate from Serengeti National Park to Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve, and it’s one of the most breathtaking sights you’ll ever see.
