Top 8 Sights: Best Places To Visit In Kenya


“Travel is more than seeing sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” (Miriam Beard)

Kenya is a beautiful country. It is scenic with a coastline along the Indian Ocean, layered with a savannah topography, Lakelands, a theatrical Great Rift Valley, Mountains, Highlands and a countryside pulled right from a romantic novel.

The best sights in the world are those that knock the wind out of your lungs. Such top sights include:

  • A variety of wildlife
  • Beautiful Landscapes
  • Lakesides
  • Challenging snowy mountains to climb
  • Starry nights

Beauty is in the small things like butterflies perching on exotic flowers and wanderlust is like starvation. It starts with a growl of interest, and if left unattended, it turns into an all-consuming force that will drive you wild until you satisfy it.

Kenya is a destination for all who lust for adventure, wild experiences and being immersed in unique cultures. If you have a curious palate, Kenyan cuisine will drive your palate wild.

  1. A National Game Park close to the CBD.

The Nairobi National Park is a slice of jungle in the city. It is home to all the Big Five. I have never forgotten the majesty of the rhinos and buffaloes in the park. The game drives are epic and you can go further into the game reserves for a more private experience.

  1. Lakesides

By the Lakes, there are classy hotels, luxury and amazing hospitality. To find the inspiration you must camp by a Kenyan lake, especially these three.

In Kisumu, you can extend your tour to the rest of Western Kenya. Have you seen bellowing bulls snorting in anger, with their nostrils smoking? Have you tasted roasted termites yet? Have you gotten lost in the forest with an experience that will put Tarzan to shame? Come watch birds and butterflies in their hundreds of species, monkeys of all kinds and fauna.


  1. Mombasa Kenya

the coast

This should have been the second-best destination. The Kenyan Coast is vast. You can always go for the serene old-school Lamu, the classy Malindi or the vibrant Mombasa city. I am talking beaches, Islands, marine adventure, snorkelling, boat riding and horse-riding on the beach.  The Kenyan Coast is not to be written about. You must rent a Swahili house and stay here for a while.


  1. Samburu

maasai mara

I love Samburu for the drives. Going to Samburu is equivalent to driving on an endless road, with magical landscapes. The Samburu people are so hospitable and still soaked in their culture. Come hike on the sacred hills of Samburu and go home a transformed person.


  1. Mount Kenya

If Everest is too high and extremely cold for you, try Mount. Kenya. The Glacier Lakes on Mount Kenya are so beautiful, you won’t be able to blink. Camping on Mt. Kenya is another level of experience.
