Kenya is THE destination for the indecisive traveller! You're stuck for choice; you just can't decide if you want a holiday basking in the sun or prefer to head off on a once in a lifetime safari. If one thing's for sure, it’s that Kenya is undoubtedly the destination with something for everyone! It has mind-blowing landscapes equalled by a wealth of activities on offer. It's a multi-coloured and multi-cultural world! If its ochre-coloured savage paradise doesn't hit the mark, you'll certainly be seduced by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean that borders Mombasa's beaches. Sporty types will love Mount Kenya's snowy peaks, whilst the lush landscape of Kenya's equatorial forests will seduce the hikers and trekkers amongst you. And if you enjoy spotting wildlife and learning about botany, you'll feel right at home! Just head to Lake Nakuru, with its mind-boggling population of pink flamingoes. Imagine yourself lazing by its shores and breathing in its sights and sounds... Or maybe it’s the Big 5 that interest you? Home to some of the best game parks in the world, including the Masai Mara National Reserve, this is a bucket list destination! See more

Best things to see and do for one week in Kenya

What to see in one week

Kenya is the ancestral home of safari, and a stop in at any of the country’s countless national reserves at some point during your 7 days in Kenya is a must for any first time visit to this breathtaking place. For close encounters with the country’s most renowned tribe, visit the Maasai Mara National Reserve, which borders Tanzania. The Maasai Mara is also celebrated for the annual ‘great migration’ where thousands of zebra, wildebeest and gazelle travel through the Serengeti from July through October. The Amboseli National Park which surrounds mount Kenya, the countries highest peak, is the best place to see large herds of elephants up close. Nature enthusiasts can observe wildlife in five different habitats here, form the dried up bed of Lake Amboseli to wetlands with sulphur springs, savannah and also woodlands. Further north in Central Kenya, Lake Nakuru National Park is teeming with huge flocks of pink flamingos, but more than 450 other species of birds have been recorded there. As well as Kenya’s world famous nature reserves, the country is brimming with coastal treasures to the east. Diani Beach and Nyali are a favourite of visitors to Mombasa, while Molindi Bay is home to coral reefs, white sand beaches and the Gede Ruins, the remains of an ancient swahili town. Finally, if your itinerary allows, the city boasts a large number of markets, galleries and museums to wander through as well as a thriving nightlife to enjoy.

What to do in one week

Although most people visit Kenya for the safaris, beautiful landscapes and wildlife, the urban life is thriving and shouldn’t be overlooked during your one week in Kenya, especially when travelling through Nairobi. For the kids, visit Splash water world, for the adults, sample locally brewed beer at Brew Bistro, or dine at La Palanka. Or for any age, discover 7D cinema at Thika road mall. Once out of the city, Mount Kenya beckons any keen adventurers, or if that’s not enough, just across the border into Tanzania lies africa’s highest peak, Kilimanjaro. Surfers can enjoy the Indian Ocean in the areas around Mombasa, such at Watamu bay. Divers will also be amazed at the diversity of marine life here at Watamu beach, or alternatively, they can head to the beautiful coral reefs near Mombasa, or to Kisita Mpuguti Marine Reserve for some of the largest Manta rays on the East African coast. Make sure you save some time to visit some tribal villages and maybe even bring home some of the amazing arts and crafts that are often made to sell to tourists, generating revenue for the local people and sustaining their ancient way of life.

Best time to travel to Kenya for a week

The beginning of January to late February is the warmest time to visit Kenya, with the highest number of animals congregating in the popular safari destinations, this is also a great time of year for divers to visit Kenya, as the Indian Ocean is at its clearest. Avoid the rainy season from March until May as access to some areas is limited and mosquitoes are much more prevalent during this time. June signals the start of the dry season in Kenya, and although prices to rise during this season, the unforgettable Great Migration is certainly worth the extra money. Just after the busy season, October through November is a great time to visit Kenya and enjoy the sights in more solitude.
