Camping in Kenya: 11 of the wildest places to go

“Camping in Kenya offers adventurous travellers the chance to escape the crowds and see some of the country‚Äôs most beautiful sites from the rugged comfort of their own tent.”

In March I spent a couple of weeks working for Getaway Magazine in Cape Town, South Africa’s leading travel magazine. The team there were very keen to get some useful content on Kenya up on their website so I started working on a big piece about camping in Kenya.

From tree canopies to mountain tops and giant expansive plains, camping in Kenya is about as wild as it gets. In the 14 months that I’ve been here I’ve been north, south, east and west exploring the best spots to pitch a tent in this country, so was delighted to finally be able to share them in a useful format for Getaway readers. Here’s my piece on how to escape the crowds at 11 of the wildest campsites in Kenya, and stay tuned because I’m going to continue adding to this as I keep exploring this fascinating and varied country.
