Kenya Travel | Top 10 Reasons to Trip of a Life Time top ten reasons why you should visit
Kenya when you think of amazing vacation
destinations Africa is probably not on that list in Kenya that’s a place you go
to volunteer not the casein well that is wrong because I’ve traveled to Kenya
four different times rented the car and drove all across the country and
discovered that Kenya is a beautiful amazing place that you need to visit and
here are 10 reasons why number 10 national parks as far as I’m
aware Kenya is the only place where you can within an hour of arriving to the
country be at a national park in a safari see the capital Nairobi has a
national park in it and so that’s what I did I rented the car and had got to a
national park and saw elephants lions and tons of wildlife in less than an
hour of arriving to the country in case you’ve never gone on a safari most are
not anywhere near an airport it can take days to get to and yeah in Kenya you can
do it within an hour and if you want other safaris Kenya has a ton of safaris
in national parks and if you time it right you can go to the south and see
the great migration one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen number nine kids are happy see as I
traveled the world and went to many really rich countries I often saw kids
playing on cell phones and basically staying inside all day but in Kenya
they’re outside playing they’re teasing each other chasing each other laughing
having a wonderful time so made me realize you don’t need money for kids to
be happy number eight Kenyans are friendly maybe
a little bit too friendly let me give you some examples any time I got a flat
tire which I got four Kenyans were out helping me most times I wasn’t allowed
to change the tire myself because they refuse to let a foreigner do it they
wanted to help me out and never wanted any money for it also one time when I
was in there will be at nighttime I accidentally went the wrong way on the
street on the one way and cars started coming towards me instead of being mad
or rude or anything every single car stopped and told me as I was on the side
of the road waiting for them they actually were backing up traffic and
they eventually stopped and let me turn around and there were a bunch of cars
and nobody conked everyone was super polite and so again I just couldn’t
believe how nice and friendly people were in Kenya number seven it will
change the way you travel because that’s what it did for me one of my trips
around Kenya I was with my mother and my sister and my mom is a teacher so she
wanted to see a school so I decided to just stop at a random school and my mom
actually went out and said hi to the school and the teachers and the kids and
had a wonderful time I ended up taking me and showing me all the students and
it was so fun getting to see these students and knowing that this was true
we weren’t an influence or politician we were seeing authentic Africa with no
influence and so it taught me when I traveled in the future to do these
things go out and meet people and experience the culture don’t just go to
the sites but experience the people because that’s what makes traveling
amazing number six conservatories Kenya has a
lot of them and it’s amazing to see Kenyans all helping out the local
wildlife like elephants giraffes and more number five were the first humans
arose East Africa is where the first humans first became humans and over the
thousands of years the landscape probably hasn’t changed that much
and so it’s incredible to be walking in the same footsteps in same places that
the first humans were walking number four beaches you probably don’t realize
that Kenya has some of the prettiest beaches in the entire world number three culture Kenya has so many
different ethnic groups and as I rented the car and drove around the entire
country I met as able to interact with so many one of the cool things was when
I drove to the Northeast and saw Somalis ethnicity there were actually Kenyan
citizens because they were living in Kenya and one of the things that the
media often shows is Kenyans and Somalis not getting along but here were Somalis
living in Kenya and so it was beautiful to see that Kenya is actually many
different ethnicities all together to blend to be one country Kenya number two
one problem isn’t all of Africa what I mean by this is before I went with my
sister mom to Kenya there had been a terrible attack and so my sister’s
school had canceled all their trips to Kenya but upon arriving I realized that
this was one isolated event that happened in the country of over 50
million people and so I realized we don’t treat Africa fair if one event
happens in Africa it’s get blasted on all the news and we no longer even want
to go there yet in America the same thing happens every single day and
people don’t stop coming to America number one visiting Kenya will open your
eyes see when I was a kid I was taught to feel sorry for Africa that everybody
in Africa was miserable but when I visited Kenya I saw a completely
different world Kenya had restaurants had bars had shops had hotels had
markets had people laughing people were enjoying life in
yeah one of the Kenyans I met stayed in a really fancy apartment way better than
the apartment I had in Singapore and I also wanted to see the other side and so
I made a friend who let me see the slums that’s literally what he called it and
when I saw where he lived I was actually really surprised he had a bed
he had a couch he had a radio a nice table and some furniture now it wasn’t
amazing but it wasn’t miserable and again it made me realize that not every
Kenyan is struggling there are many Kenyans that are very
happy and loving life so that’s why you need to visit Kenya not only will open
your eyes you’ll also see amazing sights and be able to go on amazing safaris and
best of all get to meet such amazing people so that’s why you need to book
your next trip to Kenya
