Taita Hills Vacations
Nairobi, the country's capital, is situated 180 miles (290 kilometers) northwest of Taita Hills.
To enjoy this region in all it's richness, set out to see the cities, attractions and landscapes around Taita Hills. Tsavo, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south, and Taveta, 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the east of Taita Hills are also waiting to be discovered.
To learn about local culture, head straight to Kenya's craft workshops.
Why not combine a little learning with leisure on your vacation by joining one of the region's popular wildlife safaris and wildlife spotting tours.
Discover the Kenya cuisine by exploring the regional restaurants. Potato and also maize are popular ingredients here. Ugali (cornmeal) and irio (mashed peas and potato mix) are much-loved options to sample. Taste chilled banana cream at the end of your repast. This is a common choice for locals. And of course, regardless of what time of day it is, Kenya is a good place to ask for Picana (mango juice).
Independence Day is celebrated on the 12th of December, so if your visit coincides, put aside your sightseeing and join in the local festivities with locals.
Sadly, vacations can't last forever, so when it's time go home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Kilimanjaro, 90 miles (145 kilometers) away.
