Is Kenya Worth Visiting?

Situated in East Africa and distinguished by its scenic landscapes and diverse wildlife, Kenya is a dream destination for adventurers and nature lovers alike. Known for its iconic savannahs that roar to life with the great migration of Wildebeest, this captivating place is a natural habitat for the world's famous 'Big Five' game animals - Lion, Elephant, Cape buffalo, Leopard, and Rhinoceros. From the lovely shores of the Indian Ocean, the lush green highlands, to the sundrenched Masai Mara, Amboseli National Park, and the awe-inspiring Mount Kilimanjaro backdrop, Kenya is a true African gem. Not to mention its bustling capital city, Nairobi, home to sophisticated restaurants, hip cafes, shopping avenues, and rich historical museums that display the nation's vibrant culture and heritage.

Solo travel experience

Kenya was surprisingly good as I was expecting to feel less safe going there alone. People are awesome and so welcoming and kind. I cherished their honesty. It was refreshing. One of my best solo trips ever.

Solo travel experience

I spent 8 days alone in Kenya last September and had a fantastic time. I never felt unsafe. I spent 3 days on a safari in the Masai Mara Reserve, visited the Elephant Orphanage, the Giraffe Center, the Nairobi Museum, and did some shopping in downtown. Throughout the whole time, I had an amazing private guide.

Solo travel experience

I spent a wonderful time alone in Nairobi, Mara, and Mombasa. I never felt uncomfortable or uneasy. I simply followed the usual tips to be aware of my surroundings and tried not to stand out more than necessary. I had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful country and wonderful people of Kenya.

Solo travel experience

I went to Kenya for 2 weeks. The first week I joined a group safari tour to visit Maasai Mara, Nakuru, and Naivasha. Then, in the second week, I continued my journey alone to Mombasa, Diani Beach, and Kilifi. I felt safe there, however, I was advised not to wander alone at night. The hostel where I stayed at Diani Beach insisted that someone accompany me across the street to the restaurant for dinner.

Solo travel experience

Some cities are not exactly safe - I was walking joyfully around Mombasa, and the locals told me I should run away from there because it's dangerous. Also, it's better to take taxis in the capital at night to stay safe, rather than walking around. Besides, I took buses to different parts of the country, used matatus, and took part in a trip to areas where we went on safari.
