    Kenya is a country that has won awards as the preferred destination in the whole of Africa. The wilderness of Kenya is unmatched and is so amazing, and is also preferred by the BBC for the shooting of the Cat Diaries. The migration of millions of wildebeests from Serengeti to Masai Mara in July is one of the wonders of the world. These are some of the reasons for you to travel to Kenya.

    I think that political unrest and violence have put a lot of people off of traveling to Kenya in recent years.

      Absolutely. Also its very likely you will get hassled there. I felt awkward leaving my things on the beach to go for a swim as i felt like they were going to get taken. Definitely have to watch your back when there.

    I loved going to Kenya, I went there for 2 months a few years ago and had the time of my life..
    I did not spend all my time in Mombasa or Nairobi, I got a car and drove out into the wilds with a "guide".. Walking into a remote village in the hills followed by around 100 children who had never seen a white man in their life was surreal as they all kept running up to me and touching me to see if I was real..
    I spent a week on the Masai Mara then went up to Nakuru, saw all of the main wildlife, even filmed a leopard running down a deer.. I wish I could get back my films and photographs from my ex-wife, it would make several great hubs!

    However in the main tourist areas hold on to your stuff and never let it out of your site, this is a very poor country and people will take any opportunity offered them!!
    People can be violent to get what they want, I had to run a "roadblock" at high speed late at night in the centre of Nairobi.
    There was also an incident in a local bar where the women in the family group I had associated with nearly beat a man to death as he would not take no for answer and kept pestering the younger sister.. We left straight after which was very lucky as the mans friends had returned with a rifle and were shooting at the bar and my car as we drove away!!
    Most main tourist areas are ok, but I just like to go where no one else goes....
