Top 5 / Africa

There is a different, wild experience to be had in Kenya any direction you turn. If you have an adventurous spirit, here are some top wild experiences to have in the African country.

 

Overnight on a Dhow

There’s a real sense of freedom on the Indian Ocean. Spending the night on a renovated Dhow boat gives you a luxurious and adventurous experience at the same time. You’ll be served gourmet meals, swim in ocean waters, sail into the sunset and sleep under the stars. Does anything sound better than that?

 

Visit a Native Tribe

There are numerous and diverse tribes in Kenya, most of which welcome visitors if you have a well-informed guide. Prepare to feel like you’ve stepped into National Geographic magazine. You may be taught to dance, help the little kids milk their goats and may even be served chai tea inside a cow dung hut.

 

Feeding a Giraffe at Giraffe Manor

It may be pictured on every influencer’s Instagram account, but Giraffe Manor does a great job keeping its authenticity by focusing on conservation efforts. The famed Giraffe Breakfast should not be missed, as you may be joined by some curious, long-necked friends who pop in to say hello through the windows!

 

Kenya Choppers into the Suguta Valley

If you’re going to splurge on one activity in Kenya, let it be this. Kenya Choppers will take you straight into the raw, unfiltered wilderness of the Great Rift Valley’s Suguta Valley. You may just find yourself catching a baby alligator, landing on the top of a volcano and leaping down sand dunes — all in the span of an hour.

 

The Great Migration

Seeing The Great Migration is a quintessential Kenyan experience. More than 2 million wildebeest and zebra cross the Serengeti Plains as they follow the new grass brought on by seasonal rains. Bonus points if you watch thousands of wildebeest cross a river from a helicopter.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

3 Gifts Travelers Want

Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often.
