    Most stories I’ve read about Kenya center around the Masai Mara. Thank you for sharing the other gems as well!

    Thanks for sharing lot about Kenya. It is definitely a place worth visiting. Lake Bagoria and tea gardens are really eye-catching. Full of wildlife. Loved it.

      Hi Supriya, you’re totally right, its definitely a must have on any travelers list. Kenya unlike any other destination and very near my heart. While it’s famous for wildlife, it has many incredible places – Kericho, Lake Bagoria, Brodrick falls, lake Victoria, weeping rock, Mount Kenya to name a few.

    While I’d love to check out the wildlife especially the big 5, I’m looking forward to seeing the flamingoes. They look so pretty and elegant! The Kericho Tea Gardens also came as a surprise. Such a great contrast to the national parks you’ve initially mentioned with its rolling hills of tea plantations. So good for the eyes!

    Great recommendations!

      Hi Marvi, I’m so happy to hear that you liked the not-so-well-known gems of Kenya. These and many more sights were popular with us locals for quick trips. Indeed Kenya has so much to offer in addition to the famous national parks.

    Wow, Kenya looks beautiful. I love animals, so would like to see them in their natural habitat. The Nakuru national park looks awesome! Hope I go there one day.

      I totally agree 🙂
      Kenya is absolutely stunning, a gift of nature. Nakuru is a great but also very convenient and relatively inexpensive because we can visit in a day trip from Nairobi. Do let me know if you have any questions when you schedule it.

    I think, in the mainstream, Africa is looked at with a bit of scepticism when it comes to Travel/Tourist destinations. I’m delighted to read this piece and would love to know more! I’ll be in touch!

      Hi Luis, I’ll be happy to share more about Kenya. I’ll certainly have a lot to write about our upcoming trip to Namibia and South Africa.
      Africa is undoubtedly one of the miracles of nature. Let’s clear any myths about visiting Kenya and many African countries we’ve visited.

    I find it interesting how lions set up the hunt. Also, I love the photos especially the one of the leopard. You provided nice tips too.

      Thanks Dorothy. One of the best parts about observing wildlife in their habitat learning how smart and strategic they are. Lion and lioness hunting is one of the most fascinating things to every witness! Another one of my favorite is how moms and her women friends care for the new born. Surprisingly dads have no part in it. In fact will kill the babies to prevent future competition!

    I do love Kenya and you opened my eyes to some more spots to go. SweetWater Camp looks like an awesome safari, I did Hell’s Gate National Park. Kericho tea gardens would be a top place for my next trip too!

      Hi Venessa, I couldn’t agree more!
      SweetWater Camp is unique in that you’re not rushed to go anywhere, just stay in one place and watch life unfold. There is so much happening right there!
      I don’t remember Hell’s Gate National Park. My parents talk about it, so I must have gone there as a kid.
