Game Watching at Crescent Island

Crescent Island has the highest density of a variety of game animals than any other place in Kenya. It is one of the few places where one can take a walk amid wild animals as they are all harmless. The island can be accessed courtesy of a 15-minute boat ride or a game drive by a reliable 4 by 4 vehicle.

The birdlife on the island is also out of this world and being just by the shore, you can also enjoy unmatchable aqua life.

Swimming at the Olkaria Spa

The Olkaria unique swimming pool is known for its geothermal spa, which features Blue Lagoons with naturally heated water and water temperatures ranging from 30°C to 40°C. It is Africa’s first of its sort. This is the best getaway for campers who want to get away from the city’s hustle and bustle. Several hotels in Nairobi tend to include the Olkaria spa in their packages because of its popularity.
