Africa is full of hidden gems, let us tell you that for sure! One minute you could be walking down one of the main streets in Kenya, the next you could be immersed into a new terrain, bringing some of the most wonderful views of the planes of Africa.
Kenya is one of the best parts of the country to visit if you want to experience wildlife. It has plenty of nature reserves and national parks, with guided tours being held nearly every day.
There are also some truly stunning places to stop, such as the masai mara luxury accommodation. You’ll wake up to some of the most amazing views, and feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, with only yourselves and nature to enjoy.
If you want a little hidden gem, one that’s a little bit different to the wildlife you’re going to see, take a trip to the Gedi ruins, you won’t be disappointed!
Experience The Wildlife
If you’re going to Africa, one of the main things you should be going for is the wildlife. It’s full of it, no matter what part you go to.
We’ve already said that Kenya has some good wildlife national parks, such as the Amboseli national park. But there are so many more dotted around Africa for you to have a look at.
The Serengeti national park has to be one of the most famous. The wildlife living here has ruled the planes for as long as they have lived, and the rangers here work day and night to make sure they’re all safe, especially from the likes of hunters.
Take one of the Safari tours, and experience what Africa is best known for. Never try and venture out alone, as good as Africa is, it’s a dangerous place for both violence, and the animals that you may come across.
Experience The Culture
Africa is full of rich culture. The many tribes that still exist, and also rule their own villages are incredible. Besides the dangers that we have just mentioned, Africa is one of the friendliest nations if you go to the right location.
The tribes will welcome you, as you should welcome them with gifts. You’ll experience so amazing food, amazing dances and rituals, and see a culture that you will possibly never get to experience again.
So, do you feel as though Africa is going to steal your heart now? We believe it will so get booking whilst you still can!
