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.
For the Trekker, Kenya is a world of highs and lows- From the snow capped peak of Mt Kenya to the desert plains of the north. There are a range of treks from sedate hill walks through game rich ranges to high altitude routes on alpine slopes.
For those aiming higher, Kenya offers plenty of challenges. Climbers may be aware of the mighty peak of Mt Kenya, but there are many other climbing areas to be explored. There is a broad scope of destinations, from granite cliffs and volcanic rock towers to the ultimate challenge- a technical assault on Africa’s second highest summit.
Kenya has some excellent potential areas for off road mountain biking. As the popularity of the sport increases, more and more mountain bikes are now for hire, and there is plenty of undiscovered country for bush biking.
Kenya is home to a very active equestrian community, and horses are a great way to explore wilderness areas. Riding through herds of game is an ideal way to experience the wild up close and personal.
Looking for a more unusual mode of transport? The North of Kenya has a thriving camel culture, and the camel is used by many nomadic tribes. These deserts and wide arid plain lands have long been crossed by camel trains, following ancient routes through deep valleys and along winding dry river beds. Large herds of dromedary (single humped) camels are found throughout the North. A safari by camel is a unique way to see this country. The trackless deserts and high ranges of the Northern frontier are beautiful and remote places, completely isolated from the modern world. Walking through this wilderness with a camel train, camping in the wild and sleeping under the stars, you can travel through an Africa unchanged since the passage of the first explorers…
Far from the northern deserts, the waters of the Indian Ocean are an adventurers playground. The coast of Kenya has a well deserved reputation for big game fishing and has attracted fishing devotees such as Ernest Hemingway, drawn by the promise of world-class fishing. Local tag and release programs ensure eco-friendly fishing.
These waters have a long been a traditional passage for sailors and today dhows still ply the calm waters of the coastline. The coast is an ideal place to explore by boat, and the beaches are ideal for all kinds of watersports.
Inland, the beautiful, bird rich freshwater lakes of the Rift Valley are also ideal for boating, waterskiing and windsurfing.
The inland Lakes and rivers of Kenya also present plenty of opportunity for world class fishing, from Trout to the mighty Nile Perch
White water rafting and kayaking are relatively new sports in Kenya. However, with extensive and spectacular river systems, good grade white water and wide freshwater lakes, the possibilities are boundless.
