Kenya is a charming nation in the East of Africa. She is home to the Maasai Mara and its stunning yearly wildebeest migration, the second-highest mountain on the continent (Mt. Kenya), the bulk of the world athletics champions, and an incredibly beautiful coastal line that contains Mombasa and Lamu.
The Chalbi desert
East of Lake Turkana, in Marsabit County, is the Chalbi Desert. You will be walking across the bleached ground, rough sand, and boulders here. Animals use the desert as a natural salt lick since it is so salty. In this desert, there is an oasis named Kalacha, where travellers and animals can find water under palm and acacia trees.
Hidden Lake Baringo Island
On Lake Baringo in the Great Rift Valley is a privately owned island called Samatian. Behind it, the Laikipia escarpment provides a stunning sunset background. More than 500 different types of birds make up abundant birdlife. During your visit, go fishing, take a gorgeous boat ride, or go for a nature stroll.
There are about 1,000 islands in Lake Victoria, ranging from spits to livable islets, but only a small number are well known.
One such island is Takawiri, which contains a fishing village, a resort, and a beautiful white sand beach surrounded by palm trees. You can take a boat for an hour to Rusinga, one of the nearby islands, from here.
Maasai Ostrich Resort
This resort, located 45 kilometres (28 miles) from Nairobi, began as a ranch house with roomy quarters, surrounded by 200 acres of gently sloping grasslands. But today, the huge ostrich, a stunning, flightless creature that reaches around 2 meters (6.6 feet) tall, is one of the primary attractions. Ostrich riding appears on this list even though there are some ethical questions regarding it. Swimming and agricultural excursions are other options.
