Kenya is a great sporting nation. The name Kenya has become a byword for athletic prowess. At many recent Olympic games and other international athletic competitions, the sight of Kenyans holding the gold, silver and bronze medals for a single athletic event has become commonplace.

The Kenyan love of sport means that there is plenty for the visiting sport enthusiast to see and do. This is the ideal destination for a sporting traveller.

Away from the big game of our Parks and Reserves, there are plenty of other Big Games to see. From Rugby Sevens to the world’s most gruelling off road Rally, there is a wide range of spectator sports throughout the year.

There are also new and unusual sporting spectacles born of our exotic cultural heritage. Why not take a front row seat at the annual Donkey races in Lamu or the traditional Bullfights in Kakamega?

If you don’t want to just sit back and spectate, Kenya can certainly keep you busy. We take sport seriously and have world class sporting facilities to prove it. Golfers will be delighted to discover some of the finest golf courses in Africa.

Tee off in our pure highland air with views of both Mt Kenya and Mt Kilimanjaro in the Distance, and discover what a real Game safari is all about.
