Take in some of the cultural and natural highlights of Kenya, with a tour of the Great Rift Valley and Kenyan Highlands. Start just north of Nairobi in Naivasha, where you can experience something a little different and sample the delicious and fast-growing Leleshwa wines with a tour at the Rift Valley Winery. Continue north from here to Lake Nakuru for a fascinating safari where you might be lucky enough to see its famous flocks of pink flamingoes. Then, head west to Kakamega, close to Lake Victoria, and go hiking in Kenya’s only tropical rainforest.

Naivasha

Wine tasting in Naivasha

Kakamega Forest

Go hiking in Kakamega

Just north of the equator, close to Lake Victoria in eastern Kenya, is Kakamega Forest — Kenya’s only tropical rainforest. Wander the forest’s network of trails and take in the huge variety of flora and fauna it supports, including hundreds of bird species, some of which are not found anywhere else.

Lake Nakuru safari
Lake Nakuru

Lake Nakuru safari

Go on a Rift Valley safari at one of Kenya’s smallest but best-kept reserves. The park is home to a diverse range of wildlife including the rare Rothschild giraffe, endangered rhinos and, when conditions are right, the amazing spectacle of hundreds of thousands of pink flamingoes feeding at Lake Nakuru, the park’s focal point.

Feed a baby elephant at a Nairobi sanctuary

Many trips to Kenya start and finish in its largest city and capital, Nairobi. For a shot of cuteness, visit one of its wildlife sanctuaries to see baby elephants — many of which are orphaned due to poachers — feeding and playing happily in the mud.
