Kenya Tours, Travel & Backpacker Adventure
The word “safari” comes from a local Kenyan dialect which means “journey” and it is just that. Kenya offers an incredible variety of safari experiences and some of the best game-viewing on the planet. With 54 National Parks and reserves covering thousands of square km, Kenya has a diverse landscape. From semi-arid desert to fresh water lakes, adventure travelers will have the opportunity to experience a wide range of flora and fauna, including the “Big 5” - Lion, rhino, leopard, buffalo and elephant.
Mt. Kenya is a great location for adventure travelers to trek and with a height of 5,199 m, the mountain provides excellent views of the vast region. Elephants are abundant in Kenya with Amboseli National Park being perhaps the best place to view them. Discover the interesting “underground elephants” in the caves of Mount Elgon. Explore the caves here called Kitum, Makingeni, Chepnyalil and Ngwarisha.
Windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking, sailing, jet skiing, banana boat rides and parasailing are popular adventure travel activities available along the beaches near Malindi. The reefs off Kenya's beaches offer excellent snorkeling and diving. At Chale Island, you can wade out to the reef at low tide and see a large range of coral and colorful marine fish. Do yourself a favor and make Kenya your next adventure travel destination!
