Take a walk on the wild side with Kenya holidays

Travellers looking for wild adventures can more than satisfy their action appetite by taking Kenya holidays and fully immersing in the diverse itinerary of activities that await the active and intrepid traveller here. The safari concept itself has even been injected with adventure such as mountain biking, deep sea fishing, camel and horse riding safaris, and white water rafting to name a few! There is plenty to satisfy the adrenalin junkie and the curious explorer!

As a great sporting and outdoors nation, Kenya holidays are the perfect destination combining a sports passion with the varied activities on offer. Trekking enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice between the high altitude trails and the open desert plains of the north. Climbers will be in their element as they conquer the rugged Mount Kenya which is the second highest peak in Africa revealing breathtaking views of the African plains.

Known also as a leading holiday destination for safari holidays in Africa, there are a number of interesting and different ways to observe the beautiful wildlife that inhabit Kenyan plains. Off-road mountain biking particularly in Hells Gate, Meru and Lewa provides will get the adrenalin pumping as cyclists explore the bush at their own speed. For a birds-eye view, fly over the savannah in a hot air balloon in many safari parks and spot the spectacular Kenyan Big Five from the sky.

A safari by camel is a unique way to explore the country during your Kenya holidays, and camel’s are an important part of nomadic tribal life. Riding through the wilderness following in the footsteps of the first explorers provides an experience like no other, then camp and sleep under the stars miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Horses are also a great way to explore the wilderness where riders will pass through herds of game and meet Kenya’s wildlife up close and personal!

From rivers to coastline Kenya’s waters offer a world of environments to explore. Daily motorised canoeing tours give participants the chance to navigate the wild reaches of the river delta and unobtrusively observe the animals living in the region, from hippos and crocodiles to bird life. Visitors can also raft on the Tana River for the ultimate adrenalin rush! Kenya’s shores are idyllic and popular for a relaxing beach holiday but the ocean is also an adventurer’s playground. Renowned for its big game fishing Kenya has attracted fishing enthusiasts such as Ernest Hemingway. The coast is an ideal place to venture out by boat and the beaches are equipped for all kinds of water sports including scuba diving, snorkelling, windsurfing, catamaran sailing, jet-skiing, kayaking, deep-sea fishing, kite surfing and banana boat rides.
