    City Market

    City Market, Mama Ngina St, City Centre, Nairobi, Kenya
    7 reviews

    The markets of Kenya are one of the best attractions and are a must see for any visitor. Artists and business people from throughout Nairobi bring their goods to these markets and sell them for ridiculously cheap prices. For about a few US dollars, any tourist is able to purchase authentic African relics. I found some very unique item for ...

    A real concentration of Nairobi's artistic talent. Check the website for functions and exhibitions, and leave some time during your visit to chat with painters at work in shared studios around the back.

    Nairobi National Park

    Langata Road, Nairobi, Kenya
    11 reviews

    I did my first safari in that Park. It's easy to setup a tour there. I saw a bunch of interesting animals but no cats. The park is not that big and you tend to bump into other cars doing the safari making it less wild then say amboseli.

    Fort Jesus

    Nkrumah Road, Mombasa, Kenya
    5 reviews

    Built by the portugese some hundreds years ago. Its an amazing landmark over Mombasa. If i remember correctly the muslims took over the fort after some heavy fighting, which endured over many months. My fondest memory of the place is when me and my wife got into one of the towers to snuggle and kiss.

    The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

    Mbagathi Gate, Nairobi National Park, Magadi Road, Nairobi, Kenya
    3 reviews

    This is one of my favorite places to visit in the Nairobi area. They're only open to the public a couple of mornings a week but it's well worth it. You'll fall in love with elephants and have so much respect for their caregivers at this baby elephant orphanage!

    Maasai Market

    Ya Ya Center, Nairobi, Kenya
    6 reviews

    This market is open on Sundays and while it offers many of the same things you can find in any curio shop, you can oftentimes get a much better price at the Yaya market. Be sure to do a walk through first - many vendors will have the same pieces, but if you buy more than one thing from the ...

    The Karen Blixen Museum

    Langata, Karen, Kenya
    5 reviews

    The Karen Blixen house is beautiful and fans of Out of Africa won't be disappointed. There's a restaurant in the garden that has a delicious however expensive menu but part of what you pay for is the experience. I've gone back several times.

    Mount Longonot National Park

    Old Naivasha Road, Naivasha, Kenya
    3 reviews

    I love hiking and this was among my more memorable treks. The peak was clouded over by the time I got there but I did get a few great views on the way up. Even with the clouds, looking down into the steaming crater was awesome. It had it's challenging moments but overall, not too difficult. My mistake was not ...

    Nyeri Kenya

    Take four or five days to hike to the peak of Mt. Kenya, through some of the most beautiful, breathtaking and alien landscapes in the country. Watch the sun rise over the clouds beneath you from the snowy glacier-covered summit. On a clear day you can spot Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru in the distance.

    Hell's Gate National Park

    Moi South Lake Road, Naivasha Town
    3 reviews

    Now, I'm no animal expert, but it seemed like a walking safari was a bad idea. But, I guess if your national park doesn't have any lions, what the hell? There are actually many walking safaris in Africa; who knew? I walked just Hell's Gate so I can't really compare, but I do have to say: being on a foot ...

    Located between the foothills of the Aberdares and snow-capped Mount Kenya, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy is home to a remarkable diversity of wildlife, including all the Big Five.

    Mombasa Marine National Park

    Off Mombasa Beach, Mombasa, Kenya
    3 reviews

    The park is basically a no fishing zone right off the shore where there are about six snorkeling stations set-up inside the reef. You hire a boat to go around to some of them and jump off and check out the wildlife. Most of the coral is dead, but there are enough bomies to keep one busy for the day, ...

    Kilifi Creek Coastal Walk

    A stroll along the south shore of Kilifi Creek
    1 review

    This is just an idea for a beautiful self-guided little walk along the shoreline. You have to figure out when its low-tide, and start your walk maybe an hour or so before it, as the tide is still going out, otherwise there will not be enough exposed beach on which to walk. Start from the Mnarani Club beach, and walk ...

    Simply amazing. It is wonderful that some of the pre-human hominid remains for each East Africa is so famous for remain right here in Kenya, on display for the world to see. These pieces could easily be in any of the world's top museums - in New York, London or Paris. But no, they are here, where they belong - ...
