While the allure of Kenya's savannas usually lies in the majestic big cats and endless plains of grassland, the Kenyan Coast offers a myriad of activities that showcase a whole new aspect of this amazing country.
Kenya's coastal area is dotted with meandering mangrove-lined creeks and shaded by elegant palms, where the vibrant colours of the tropics seamlessly merge with the sparkling turquoise of the Indian Ocean. Walk through some of the coastal towns like Momabasa and Lamu and prepare to be transported back in time as you discover the mixture of African, Persian, Arab, Portuguese and British influences. Explore the vibrant local markets, savour the flavours of Swahili cuisine, and enjoy the beautiful beaches and all of the activities on offer: from kitesurfing to boat rides in traditional dhows.
Below water, the coral reef that parallels the coast for most of its length lies open to exploration. Snorkelling and diving allow you to see a whole new world bursting with colour and exotic marine life. Fun fact actually - inland from the beach, the vast countryside rests upon ancient coral rock, from a submerged coral reef. This coral rock terrain resembles a honeycomb, renowned for its abundance of caves and holes, and further distinguishes Kenya’s beaches.
