It is a no-brainer that Kenya is a renowned country globally for its heritage in the Tourism Industry. It is filled with beautiful coastal beaches and enchanting wilds that are home to the famous big five animals. Thus, there are plenty of places where one can dine and wine. This year, the World Travel Awards has continued to recognize the beauty and natural inheritance that keeps soaring within Kenyan geography. Mentioned below are some of the tourism hotspots in Kenya worth visiting, there are highly standardized and on top of their game if we can say that.
Lamu: Manda Bay
On Manda Island’s northern tip in the Lamu archipelago off Kenya’s coast, a small, privately owned boutique resort awaits. Manda Bay has its private airstrip where private charters can land and it is less than a 5-minute drive to the lodge, so one can get there by plane. Also, if you are a lover of long rides, you can hire a car from My Hire & Rentals and go all the way through Malindi, an estimated 240km drive.
Facts: The Lamu Archipelago holds the three largest islands named Manda, Pate, and Lamu. Lamu Island is the most populated among the 3 and dates back to the 12th century and has been the best-preserved remaining settlement of the Swahili tradition in East Africa.
Diani: Leopard Beach Resort and Spa
This 5-star Resort is located in Diani Beach on Kenya’s South Coast undoubtedly Kenya’s finest beach destination. Cited just 45km from the Moi International Airport and 36 Km from the SGR train station, it is famed for providing world-class facilities and a service of excellence. By plane, one can get to Ukunda Airstrip which is only a 5km car drive to this hotel, or even pass through the Likoni Ferry which I believe could be fun for any newbie in Mombasa.
Facts: Originally launched in 1937, Likoni ferry is now one of the world’s most famous ferries. Ferry tolls are charged to vehicles, tuk-tuks, motorcycles, and trucks, but not passengers and bicycle riders.
Nairobi: The Social House
This Social House is profiled to have “a touch off-beat: unusual cuisines; unexpected events; untypical meetings; unorthodox interiors; unconventional bedrooms and uncommon people.” Located at Lavington and 30 minutes car ride from JKIA this space is designed for business travels since it has an array of event and meeting spaces with fancy names such as the garage and the workshop. You can hire a self-drive car to this 4-star venue which also has plenty of parking space for free.
Facts: Located half an hour from the House, Nairobi National Park is home to over 400 bird species, including endangered lions, leopards, hyenas, buffaloes, cheetahs, black rhinos, and giraffes.
Laikipia: Ol-Pejeta Conservancy
Located in Laikipia, this 4-to-8-hour drive from Nairobi by car would be ideal for camping lovers and those who treasure the effect of being in nature. This Nanyuki nature treasure has “accommodation, camping, membership, conservation experiences” to offer anyone who so wishes. My Hire & Car rentals, therefore, offer adventure SUV cars such as at as low as $132 per day for such a journey.
Facts: Ol-Pejeta Conservancy is the largest Rhino sanctuary in East Africa and is home to the almost extinct northern white rhinos.
With such awareness, the holiday season is coming soon and it would be brilliant to book ahead. This is because most holiday destinations give offers to early birds. On the other hand, MyHire & Rentals seeks to be your trusted car rental partner, anytime, anywhere.
