Get the ultimate adventure trip on Kenya holidays

Kenya has been touted as the place to go for an adventure holiday, with the national tourist board calling it the "activity capital of Africa".

While people planning Kenya holidays for the chance to see the Big Five game – lion, African elephant, cape buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros – they can also get active.

Angie Sloan, regional director of the Kenya Tourist Board, said: "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."

For example, she said that tourists can have a go at white water rafting along the Tana River, which is located 95 kilometres outside Nairobi. The Tana is one of the main white water rafting rivers in Kenya.

It also offers the chance to see the country from a unique perspective, while less active travellers can opt for a boat. A Dhow Trip in Lamu is one great way to see the islands.
