Kenya:  Land of Adventure

Kenya Adventure Safari: Kenya has long been known as an adventurer’s paradise. This is a land of endless opportunity for the active traveller, a country rich with possibilities for adventure and discovery.

In the arena of adventure Safari, Kenya stands tall. High-octane sporting activities range from skydiving to rhino tracking; and from camel racing to mountain climbing. And that’s before you trawl through the opportunities for big game fishing, deep sea diving, high altitude running, high-speed rallying or lava cave exploration.

For those aiming high, Mount Kenya provides the ultimate challenge. At 5,199 metres, this extinct volcano is Africa’s second highest mountain. Straddling the equator, topped in snow and ice, gouged by glaciers, and cloaked in elephant patrolled forests, this iconic mountain promises one of the most challenging technical climbs in Africa; but its lower peaks can be conquered by anyone in reasonable health thanks to the wealth of qualified guides available.

For the trekker, there are guided walks across the shimmering reaches of the savannah, or hikes through the waterfalls and forests of the Aberdares range. On the Uganda border, there’s the challenge of enigmatic Mount Elgon, world-famous for its salt-mining elephants.

And for the truly intrepid there are the cloud forests and lakes of magical Mount Marsabit, a remote montane paradise located in the burning reaches of Kenya’s rugged northern region.

For those preferring a gentler walk, there are the nature trails of Saiwa Swamp, home of the elusive sitatunga, or the winding canyons of Hell’s Gate National Park. And in the centre of Nairobi, there’s Nairobi National Park with its magnificent safari walk, a gentle boardwalk that skims high above the park showcasing wildlife and ecological habitats alike.

Down on the Indian Ocean coastline, meanwhile, lies the enchanted realm of the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest, sanctuary of the golden-rumped elephant shrew, and an ornithologist’s wonderland.

World-famous for the magnificence of her runners, Kenya is also the venue of choice for those who’d like to train alongside the greats. Travel to the little town of Iten in Northern Kenya, and you’ll find yourself running alongside some of the best-known names in longdistance running. Alternatively, you can run alongside some very famous faces through the wildlife and the wilderness of Lewa during the annual Safaricom marathon.

Alternatively, you can relax on the beach, take on the personal challenge of the golf course, fly around the peaks of Mount Kenya in a helicopter, or explore the coral gardens of the Indian Ocean equipped only with a mask and snorkel. Because, rising from silver beaches to Alpine peaks, Kenya has an unrivalled ecological diversity.

And as the longest established safari venue in the world, she brings literally decades of experience to the creation of sporting challenges and magical moments alike.

Come to Kenya… and encounter the magic.
