Mount Kenya National Park Vacations
The national capital Nairobi is located 85 miles (137 kilometers) southwest of Mount Kenya National Park.
Savvy travelers will enjoy getting even further off the beaten track by discovering the other cities, towns and villages in this fascinating region. Nanyuki and Meru are two more places worth seeing while you're in Kenya.
If you are looking for indoor activities, it's hard to go past Kenya's excellent craft workshops. These are ideal places to learn about the region's rich cultural tapestry and perhaps find a special souvenir or two.
Joining one of the wildlife spotting tours and wildlife safaris is an excellent way to learn about Kenya.
Sampling the food eaten by locals is often about more than just satisfying appetites. It offers a glimpse into the regional character. Some of the many elements often used in this part of the world are potato and maize. Ugali (cornmeal) and irio (mashed peas and potato mix) are two meals to taste. Those who who are not quite satisfied, can order chilled banana cream, the perfect way to complete your Kenya culinary experience. To complete your experience, try a Picana (mango juice). It is a common non-alcoholic beverage in this region.
When the time comes to say farewell to Mount Kenya National Park, head to the nearest major airport situated in Nairobi, 85 miles (137 kilometers) to the south.
