KENYA is revered as the “cradle of humanity”. Kenya has some 300 miles of coastline made up of amazing landscapes, beaches, mangrove swamps and creeks, and memorable mountainscapes such as the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Kenya.
There are also many brilliant lakes, including lake Victoria and Lake Naivasha. Much of the emerald coast is protected by coral reefs, which provide excellent diving, while the beaches are reputed to be the best in Africa. According to diving experts, the SCUBA diving facilities on the beaches of Kenya are among the world’s best. The water is warm all year, so you can dive without a wet suit. The protective reefs, located several miles from the coast, have created calm and safe waters. The reefs are beautiful and in very good condition.
The most popular base for visiting yachts is Kilifi, north of Mombasa. With 40 national parks and reserves there is a unique opportunity to explore the most magnificent wildlife in Africa with thousands of animal species including lions, leopards, buffalo, rhinoceros, zebras, giraffes and elephants. One such reserve is the Masai Mara, where Blue Wildebeest can be seen on their large scale annual migration. There is wide range of activities such as safaris, bird watching, mountaineering, climbing and many more.
