Tourism board say country is perfect for activity trips
Kenya is the best place in Africa for travellers planning activity trips or hiking holidays, according to the country's tourism board.
Angie Sloan, the regional director in the United Kingdom for the Kenya Tourist Board, said that the white-water rafting and climbing opportunities that the country offers are just some of the reasons to visit.
In an interview, she went on to call the eastern African country 'the activity capital' of the whole continent.
"From glacial mountains with snow-capped peaks and dramatic river valleys to spectacular wide-open grasslands and coral reefs along the Indian Ocean; Kenya is a paradise for adventure junkies searching for their next fix," she said.
"Just some of the adventures on offer in Kenya include white water rafting - the Tana River is located 95 kilometres outside of the capital city of Nairobi and is one of the main white water rafting rivers in the country."
The country is named after Mount Kenya, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the second-highest peak in Africa, behind Kilimanjaro.
