The Kenyan pristine beaches have more than enough to lure for a holiday in their own right and as a mix with safari offer the perfect complement. The Kenyan Coast boast miles of Indian Ocean with Mombasa city at are heart. To experience the best of the Kenyan coast its recommended to go further to the sleepy island of Lamu far north, or to the faster-paced Malindi and to the small village of Watamu. Further to the south away from Mombasa lie the less developed Diani and Tiwi beaches which are perfect for a fly flop holiday. Scuba divers and snorkelers will never get disappointed as Kenya’s famous wildlife continues in the water. Coral reefs are unspoiled in the prominent marine parks at Watamu to the north and Kisite to the south packed with Indian Ocean fish species, but snorkeling is good all along the coast in season. Kenya’s coastal culture is unique, centuries of contact with other nationalities, particularly the first traders from Middle East and European has made the region less tribal and more laid-back.

The stunning, snow capped peak of Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest point at 5199m. Although it is a very popular destination for climbers and trekkers, it is quite challenging. The highest peak is Batian (5199m), second is Nelion (5188m) the two peaks are technical climbs. The third peak known as Lenana (4985m) is more accessible and a good point for starters.
