Best things to do and see in Kenya

What popular events take place in Kenya?

Kenya offers a number of fascinating annual festivals, so when you’re considering visiting look for flights to Kenya that land in time for the ones you’re most interested in. The Lamu Cultural Festival is a traditional celebration of the rich history and architecture of the coastal Swahili town of Lamu, which is a World Heritage Site. It happens in November every year, and will give you the chance to try your hand at some traditional Kenya pastimes like donkey racing. Foodies should definitely visit in time for Nairobi Restaurant Week, when its best restaurants showcase their culinary creations at discount prices. It takes place from the end of January through the beginning of February. For art, modern culture and fashion lovers there’s the Africa Nouveau Festival featuring theatre stage performances, fashion shows, art installations, film screenings and more. It’s held annually in March in the capital of Nairobi. If you want something a bit unusual, look for Kenya flight deals in August, to attend the three-day International Camel Derby and Festival. To experience the Turkana, Samburu, Borana and other cultures of Northern Kenya, get to the Lake Turkana Festival in June, created to preserve these cultures, and their food and lifestyles.

Is Kenya known for specific food/cuisine?

The staple and most common food you’ll find in Kenya is cornmeal boiled to a thick, dense paste. Known as ugali, it’s eaten with your hands along with cooked vegetables or meat. Another staple among the Kikuya people is irio, a simple dish of mashed green peas and potatoes, to which whole kernels of corn are added. It’s usually eaten with the roasted beef or goat meat that’s a hallmark of Kenyan cuisine, known as nyama choma, or with any kind of stew. Githeri is a dish of beans and corn, sometimes with a few other vegetables added. It’s typically flavoured with pepper, chillies, and salt. Rice is another of the staple foods in Kenya, particularly along the coastal region. It’s supplemented with grated coconut and slow cooked to create wal wa nazi, or coconut rice. It’s often served with chicken or fish curry. Another popular rice dish is Kenyan pilau, made by adding some of the most fragrant spices to rice, including cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and cumin. It’s then used as the accompaniment to a beef stew, along with slices of fresh tomato and onions.

What can you see and do in Kenya?

When it comes to tourist attractions, Kenya is - above all - a land of game reserves. They are all well worth visiting, but some deserve highlighting. The Maasai Mara National Reserve is one of the most outstanding in all of Africa, so put that on your list immediately. It borders Tanzania and it’s where you can experience the famous Great Migration of gazelle, wildebeest, and zebra on their way to the Serengeti, which happens every July to October. Amboseli National Reserve is another gem, which has Tanzania’s famous Mount Kilimanjaro as its backdrop. It’s where you find very large herds of elephants, as well as lions, cheetahs, giraffes and a wide range of antelope. The last one to highlight is Lake Nakuru National Park, where you’ll see the world-famous flocks of pink flamingos. For a change of pace, Nairobi has its own enticing landmarks, including the Karen Blixen Museum, as this is the city where she wrote her famous book, “Out of Africa”. The Nairobi National Museum is the place to gain insights into the country’s culture and history.

What passport or visa requirements are there when visiting Kenya?

As a British citizen you’ll need to arrange a visa to visit Kenya. It’s a simple matter of completing an online form and processing usually only takes from one to three days. Once approved you’ll receive an evisa by email, which you can either print out or display on your mobile device. The visa is valid for 90 days. Also make sure that your passport will be valid for at least six months from your entry date and that it has one blank page for stamping on arrival.
