Accommodation is available in exclusive lodges that boast every amenity you might require during your holidays to Kenya.
Kenya has more than 300 miles of coastline, most of which is unspoilt. During your holidays to Kenya, you can expect to find mile after mile of white sand beaches and turquoise waters, some of which are teeming with coral reefs and examples of colourful marine life. Lamu island is the ultimate relaxation spot in Kenya, with its UNESCO-designated old town, its remote beaches, excellent luxury accommodation options, and delightful cuisine.
Going on an adrenaline-laden holiday
Sports like white water rafting, kite surfing or scuba diving can offer a different perspective on your holidays to Kenya, while allowing you to discover the best of Kenya's natural scenery. For those who prefer a less adventurous holiday to Kenya, there is also the possibility of snorkeling, sailing, or going on a hot air balloon flight over the magnificent lake Turkana.
Over the past few years, a number of golf courses of international standards have sprung up in Kenya. There are more than 40 golf courses in the country, most of which are set in spectacularly beautiful surroundings and offer access to facilities like casinos, swimming pools, and shopping arcades.
Traditional dhow boats have been in use in Kenya's coastline for centuries. Today, picturesque dhow boats offer luxury cruises that can be one of the highlights of your holidays to Kenya. There are sunset, dinner, and night cruises available.
