Kenya was one of the first overseas countries that I visited (go big or go home!) and it opened my eyes to the whole travel world! I was based in Mombasa for 2 weeks (back when I visited, this was on a direct flight from London) and naturally I spent a lot of time on the beach, enjoying the Indian Ocean! My hotel was surrounded by monkeys so I was in my element watching them chilling out by the pool. But of course we explored some of the country too, so here are some of my favourite places to go in Mombasa including our side trip safari in Tsavo National Park!
I visited Kenya back in 2007 and it’s a country I’ve surprisingly never written about. I’m not sure if it’s been from the pressures of ‘responsible’ travel or what, but after thinking long and hard about my visit to a school in Africa I’ve decided to write about my experience. As someone that’s been working in the education industry for 5 years, in 2 different countries, it’s interesting to now look back on my time in Kenya.
