What are the major landmarks in Kenya?

What’s the most remarkable thing you see when sightseeing in Kenya? This phrase ‘most remarkable’ occurs time and time again during the entire transit across this jumble of lakes, mountains and safari scapes. The landmarks in Kenya are not made of concrete; instead, they are full of life, warm and awe-inspiring.

  • Masai Mara National Reserve is by far the best Kenya has to offer but is also a bit far from the capital Nairobi. However distance is futile for safari lovers. The Maasai Mara is famous for the Serengeti Migration that remains in the park’s territory in July till October. Safari goers can witness the great circle of life with hippopotami, hyenas, cheetahs, antelope and the wildebeests completing a great ecology.
  • Lake Nakuru is also located in the southwestern corner of Kenya and is surrounded by Nakuru National Park. The Lake is about 150 km from Nairobi and therefore can be visited when the traveller intends to explore the Maasai Mara Triangle, which is not far from the lake. Rhinos, ducks, baboons and giraffes are abundant in the area.
  • Mount Longonot is famous for its trails and attracts British expeditions to hike on the mountain.

What are the transportation options available to tourists within Kenya?

Kenya’s main urban cities are connected by highways, which sometimes can become very potholed and dusty, never the less the buses do manage to take you from destination to destination. Travelling within the city is usually done by the matatu – extremely colourful zigzagging vans. The matatu can be a bit overcrowded and in rush hours can be stuffed with two dozen people, but they are now never overbooked, thanks to the government’s recent actions. Alternatively, there are car rental services all over Kenya that offer a fully functional vehicle for a price. Hired cars can be a bit more expensive but provide a more comfortable travelling experience.
