Unravelling Kenya, the African Wonderland

Unravelling Kenya, the African Wonderland



“Nothing but breathing the air of Africa, and actually walking through it, can communicate the indescribable sensations.” – William Burchell (English explorer)

Now, the blessed land of distinctively diverse landscapes, immense savannahs replete with herds of magnificent wildlife, and people who imbibe within themselves an exceptional blend of tradition and modernity – Kenya seems to be one of god’s favorite places indeed.

With so much to do, see, and experience, Kenya can be a pleasantly overwhelming destination for road trippers who are looking to be wooed by the wonder continent that’s Africa. Let us enlist the key factors that make this country one of the must-visit places on your African sojourn.

Wondrous Wildlife

Kenya is one of the few places in the world that offers such astonishing opportunities to view exotic wildlife in its natural habitat. Kenya is absolutely inseparable from any mention of the word ‘safari’ in Africa.

From feeding giraffes by hand, to adopting orphaned elephants, to watching ferocious lions lounging casually, soaking up the sun – the range of experiences available here can be mind boggling.

The diversity of game present in Kenya is simply amazing, with the Big 5, the Great Wildebeest Migration of the Maasai Mara, the red elephants of Tsavo National Park, the massive assembly of vibrant flamingos at Lake Nakuru, and rare species like the black rhino serving as the highlights.

Luscious Landscapes

The sole acacia tree rooted on the never-ending prairie, against a gloriously vermilion sun setting into the horizon – Kenya is a stunning study in variety when it comes to topography. The seamless roads, the azure skies and the ever-changing landscape; all make for a beautifully compelling drive that force one to sit up and take notice.

Kenya comes surrounded by calderas and epic snow-capped equatorial mountains like Mount Kenya which lend stimulating company to arid deserts and a glittering coastline fringed by lush palm trees.

Along with all of these, the Great Rift Valley and obsidian caves and natural geysers come together to make this country an especially evocative place. The gorgeous culmination of all these forms of landscapes make one yearn to discover and explore this African gem.

Treasure Trove of Traditions

Reinforcing the uniqueness of their country’s landscape, while adding character to Kenya’s history, are its soulful people.

The main tribes of the region including the Maasai, the Samburu, the Turkana and the Swahili amidst others depict the struggle of a country that is working hard to maintain the balance between adhering to its age-old customs and traditions, while welcoming the modern world with its innovations and improvements.

Head to the buzzing capital city of Nairobi if you wish to make yourself aware of Kenya’s colonial history; and Mombasa if you are looking for a city that is a veritable melting pot of cultures and cuisines.

Spend some time with the members of the local tribes to really understand how these people exist in harmony with extreme forms of natural phenomenon and some of Mother Earth’s fiercest beings.
