Kenya is a country located in Eastern Africa which borders Ethiopia to the north, the Indian Ocean to the East, Tanzania to the south and Uganda to the west. It is famed for its iconic physical landscape which consists of savannah, nature reserves, lakelands, mountainous areas and the Great Rift Valley. Kenya is the world’s 48th largest country by area. The fact that it spans so much land means that the climate is varied across the country, but overall it can typically be classified as experiencing a tropical climate, with high temperatures of between 20°C – 28°C and a wet season between November and May.
One of Kenya’s most popular tourist attractions is the savannah, where visitors get the chance to admire the country’s beauty while also seeing the wildlife that inhabit it, including elephants, lions, zebras, rhinos and more. A number of reserves have been established to protect these animals, through which safaris can be taken which provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the animals up close in their natural habitat. Kenya is also home to 17 kilometers of white sand beach where visitors can enjoy a range of water-based activities, including kitesurfing and jetskiing, before heading to the beachfront bars and restaurants to cool off. Adventure lovers will be keen to take on the challenge of scaling Mount Kenya, Africa’s second highest peak. There is a surprisingly diverse selection of activities on offer waiting to be explored in the country, so there is sure to be something to pique everyone’s interest.
Kenya is the perfect holiday destination for animal lovers, as it’s one of the world’s most incredible locations for safaris and wildlife watching. A safari holiday to Kenya may be best suited to adults, as younger children may find the long days and high temperatures to be tiring.
Although there are no direct flights to Kenya from Ireland, a number of airlines offer connecting flights that will take you to the main airports in either Mombasa or Nairobi.
