Do you always think that wildlife, exquisite hotels and camping are the only tourist destinations? This is not the case. A visit to Kenya’s highlands where tea and coffee farming is done on a large scale is breathtaking. Well-lined lawns of tea estates in the Rift Valley, Gusii and parts of Central Kenya and neat coffee rows in Central Kenya gives you a different view of Kenyan and it’s farming culture.

Gedi Ruins

It is the heart of wildlife in Laikipia. Ol Pejeta has been home to the Northern White Rhino and other wildlife such as elephants, zebras, antelopes, gazelles and giraffes.

Today, Ol Pejeta is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, and home to two of the world’s last remaining northern white rhino. It is the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees, in a Sanctuary established to rehabilitate animals rescued from the black market. It has some of the highest predator densities in Kenya and still manages a very successful livestock programme.

Old Town in Lamu

This is the place to experience the Swahili culture. A walk through Old Town in Lamu is simply exciting given that the structures in this historical town are made of coral and mangrove wood.

Lamu’s narrow streets remain unchanged, and in the markets and squares around the fort, life moves at the same pace as it always has. There are no vehicles on this island, and the donkey and the dhow remain the dominant form of transport.

For the tourist, Lamu is a hypnotically exotic experience, made even more enjoyable by the relaxed and welcoming attitudes of the locals. Life slows down, and long days are spent strolling along the waterfront, exploring the town or relaxing on the beaches.

Giraffe Centre
