Hallo Ms.Erin.Perhaps you should visit the western part of Kenya(Kakamega)and experience the beauty of our nature and marvels(a crying stone and trees that ve been standing for the last one million years!) as well as our strong culture(traditional bull fighting,initiation ceremonies).Its a lifetime experience you will cherish.I am more than willing to be your tour guide around so just holla me..:-)
Visit western kenya, Lake victoria and see USA president's Africa home. Proceed to Lake Nakuru, Lake Baringo, Samburu, Amboseli and lastly visit Tsavo and then to Mombasa and malindi for beach holidays.
Dear Erin,
I think you should try and visit Samburu National Reserve its diverse in Wildlife and has some very rare species that you are not likely to get in many other common National Parks in Kenya. You should also try and visit Lamu for a cultural Experience and also consider exploring teh Western Part of Kenya. That is L. Vicrotia, Rusinga Island and the like. You can always drop a message incase you need more assistant
Hello Erin,
Thanks fro you good question a bout your next trip to Kenya, It seems like you didnt visit Northen part of Kenya like Samburu Game reserve , then you go to Mt Kenya , Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha, Lake, Baringo and L. Bogoria for hot springs the either Tsavo both East and West and Go to Mombasa , Malindi and Lamu there is good beaches to relax..

Hi Erin, Next time try Samburu, Lakes Nakuru & Baringo, Kakamega forest, Rusinga Island and Lamu island at the coast.

Hey Erin,
Thanks for your nice question about your next trip.I think you should first visit lake Nakuru national reserve the only international bird sanctuary in africa.Then amboseli and Tsavo national park for diverse wildlife view,later proceed to mombasa for a beach holiday to relax after unforgettable safari..for more information visit our website or drop me a message at .
Thanks.
Greg.
Hi Erin

Thank you for the enquiry. You can visit the following places.
Mount Kenya area, samburu national reserve,Meru National park,Naivasha,Tsavo National Park, MOmbasa, Malindi and Lamu. All this destinations have something to offer a traveler.
Campi ya Kanzi and malindi or Lamu
Hi Erin,
As we say, Karibu Kenya - Welcome in Swahili. There is always something good in store for anyone visiting this country whether for the first time or repeatedly. Northern Circuit would be worth considering for your next visit. Begin with a safari to Samburu National Reserve. Why Samburu? You get to see the unique 5 found within this area namely the Reticulated Giraffe, Grevy's Zebra, Beisa Oryx, Somali Ostrich and the Gerenuk, what's more you get to interact with the Samburu people, the ancestral cousins of the Maasai.
The less frequented Meru National Park could be worth a try. The lesser crowds ensure that you have your own privacy while doing the game drives and not have to push for an animal sighting and make sure you spend your nights at the exclusive and elegant Elsa's Kopje.
The South Eastern circuit of Tsavo should be worth your consideration as well, get to experience the different ecosystems within one park over and above the "Big 5" and other wildlife.
Depending on the theme of your visit, you cannot miss something to enjoy. The suggestions above are based on wildlife safaris, but if interested in cultural/ historical tours, a beach holiday, bird watching...all tastes are catered for and even if you went back to Masai Mara, it would be a different experience!

Hi Erin Kiskis,

Av been around most places in Kenya but i'vew never found so much interesting place like Lamu Island in the Coast Province. Theres so much to see, learn an interact. Iove Lamu.

Lamu is an Island is located to the north of the Coast Provence and natures some of the greatest hotels in the Coast Region with 4star hotels to restaurants to choose from.

If you love the ocean, then its also the right place for you, being surrounded by the ocean the, the community is mostly enganged in swimming as a hobby and fishing as their source of income and tourism as the main source of income.

With the so many swahili culural ceremony, yu are doomed to enjoy every event. I bet that you'll be addicted to coming to Lamu as your place of interest.

Theres so much to share with you about lamu but you can contact me through, or +254 729 477750 for more details.
you can also google

Hi, Next time try climbing mount kenya, meru national park, tsavo west/tsavo east n/park, and also visiting chalbi desert in northern kenya, the aberdares n/park. Below find an amazing itinerary 8 days safari i have designed purposely for you. U like it feel free to contact me.
Regards

The expedition is in a purposely-built truck; this rugged 1,800 km safari to vanishing Africa tackles some of Africa’s worst roads, crosses dusty deserts and high mountains and takes you to the sparkling waters of the Jade Sea Lake Turkana.

You will see a great variety of tribes during the
tour and cross the Chalbi Desert if dry. During the rains it becomes an enormous shallow lake.
Day 1 - Samburu
Depart Nairobi in the morning heading north via the shoulder of Mt Kenya to
Samburu Game Reserve. Accommodation in our semi-permanent campsite
beautifully set under a canopy of trees or pitch tents on the edge of Uaso
Nyiro River.

Day 2 - Samburu
The day is spent game viewing in the park. Elephants abound; you may see
lion, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk, grevy's zebra and oryx.

Day 3 - Marsabit
We head north again along the Trans-African highway to Marsabit, which is
an extinct volcano heavily forested on its upper slopes. After setting up
camp, we will visit the lodge inside the National Park. You may see
elephant, buffalo and kudu as the lodge is situated on the edge of a
water-filled crater. As long as the park is dry we drive through thick
forest to the famous Lake Paradise. There are some very steep hills which
are impassable if wet.

Day 4 - Kalacha
We visit Marsabit town and another volcanic crater before making our way
back into the desert and lava flows. We camp at Kalacha, a small
settlement on the edge of the Chalbi Desert.

Day 5 - Lake Turkana
We depart early crossing the Chalbi Desert. The desert cannot be crossed
if wet but there are alternative roads around the North and South. We
arrive at our semi - permanent beach campsite just outside Loiyangalani
soon after lunch. Here we have our traditional Turkana Huts with a cool
breeze blowing from the lake for use if available otherwise we pitch tents
in an alternative campsite. Indeed a perfect place to relax protected from
the scorching sun and heat characteristic of the harsh climate of this
remote area.

Day 6 - Lake Turkana
We spend the day relaxing and bathing only interrupted by a short boat
excursion to visit the surrounding areas. In addition, we visit
Loiyangalani and the community settled there while in the evening we may
visit one of the Turkana Manyattas for traditional dances under a star
studded sky at an extra cost if clients wish. Unforgettable experience.

Day 7 - Maralal
We journey via South Horr and Baragoi to Maralal, another forested area.
The Samburu abound in their red-ochre.

Day 8 - Nairobi
Heading south again via Laikipia Plains and Thompsons Falls (Nyahururu) we
drive back into Nairobi by mid-afternoon.
