Elephants with long white tusks roam to the backdrop of a snow-capped mountain. Vibrant pink flamingos dance around a crowd of slow and steady hippopotami. And tribal women wear elaborate and colorful beaded jewels that sparkle in the glow of an oversized setting sun. These are the pictures of Kenya that entice travelers to East Africa from across the globe. Taking a journey here is more than just a journey here is a holiday for the soul, a trip that will leave you wide-eyed and endlessly inspired. Begin in the underrated capital of Nairobi, allowing enough time to discover the city’s vibrant nightlife and progressive and multicultural streets. From here you can make day trips to a foliage covered manor for a breakfast with a difference, sharing toast and juice with numerous long-lashed giraffes. Further away, the Amboseli National Park, named one of the greatest wildlife viewing experiences in the world. Loved-up travelers can sign up for a wedding ceremony with a difference, experiencing the nuptials of the Maasai people complete with sipping animal blood, festive chanting and body paint. Fuelled by ‘chips mayai,’ an omelette with fries, and nyama choma roasted meats, travelers can visit the Karen Blixen Museum, chase reptiles on a snake safari, and admire traditional homes at the Bomas of Kenya. If your trip to Kenya has flexibility time it with one of the country’s endlessly vibrant festivals, not least of all the multicultural street party of Mombasa Carnival and the Lamu Cultural Festival, which gives just another reason to venture to the country’s dazzling archipelago.
