The Best Tourist Attractions In Kenya

Located in Mombasa, in the coastal region of Kenya, the Fort Jesus was built by the Portuguese between 1593 and 1596, to guard the old port of Mombasa, and served as a place of safety and security for the Portuguese living on the East Coast; it had hostile interested parties who used to live in Mombasa, such as the Omani Arabs, who attacked the fort 1696 1698. Fort Jesus is one of the most outstanding and well preserved examples of 16th century Portuguese military fortification and a landmark in the history of this type of construction. Read More
Named for the intense geothermal activity within its boundaries, the Hell’s Gate National Park is a remarkable quarter of the Great Rift Valley. Spectacular scenery including the towering cliffs, water-gouged gorges, stark rock towers, scrub clad volcanoes and belching plumes of geothermal steam make it one of the most atmospheric Parks in Africa. Hell’s Gate is an ideal venue for a day trip from Nairobi where, in addition to the bio-diversity that includes raptors, visitors can enjoy mountain biking, rock climbing and a natural spa. Read More
Founded in the 14th century, Lamu is the best-preserved Swahili settlement in East Africa. Over the centuries, the island has been inhabited by Asians, Persians, Indians, Europeans and Kenyans, and as a result it has a unique charm of blended cultures. Crumbling old forts lie next to elegant rooftop cafés; narrow, cobbled streets wind past intricately carved front doors; Muslim school children laugh and play in the street between lessons.
But huge infrastructure projects, such as the Lamu Port, a multibillion-pound development of Lamu’s harbour area, threaten to change the isle forever. It may be a case of seeing Lamu in all its age-old splendour, before it’s too late. Read More
It is said that birds are probably the best representatives from the characteristic world. Kenya’s lake framework in the Rift Valley is a giant slub of unfinished beauty, with emotional transitory feathered creatures’ shows and record number of species. A day at one of the Lakes Bogoria, Nakuru or Elementaita will without a doubt leave you more associated with nature! Lake Nakuru National Park Kenya was established in 1961, in Nakuru County of Kenya. It started off small only surrounding the famous lake Nakuru and the surrounding mountainous vicinity, but has since been extended up to 188 km2 to include a large part of the savannahs. Lake Nakuru in Kenya is crowded with lots of algae which attracts masses of flamingoes and other birds that famously line the shores looking for algae as their food. Indeed “The Birders` Paradise”, lake Nakuru National Park Kenya inhabits about 400 bird species along the lake shores and the surrounding area including millions of the famous millions of fuchsia pink flamingos, the African fish eagle, Goliath heron, hamerkop, pied kingfisher and verreaux`s eagle among others.

A surface area of 68,000 km2, just 85 metres deep and also bordered by Kenya and Tanzania, Lake Victoria is a large, shallow lake that to all intents and purposes feels more like a sea. Indeed, while the renowned Muslim cartographer, Muhammad al-Idris, had already by the 10th century mapped its shores reasonably accurately, correctly attributing it as the source of the Nile, Lake Victoria’s size, position and function would go onto confuse many a European traveller, even after John Hanning Speke’s (re)discovery, naming and verification of al-Hadris’s claim.
