Kenyan Visa Requirements To Climb Mt. Kenya for Charity

August 17th, 2010
The famous mountaineer George Mallory was once asked why he wanted to climb Mt. Everest. He reportedly responded "Because it's there," and those three words have become something of a mantra among mountaineers. However, modern-day mountaineers have another reason to climb: charity. Charity climbs help aid groups raise money and bring attention to the causes they support. For example, The International Childcare Trust is currently organizing a climb of Mt. Kenya, Africa's second-highest mountain, to publicize its work fighting for the rights of children to enjoy childhood without hunger, poverty or preventable sickness (h/t Gadling). Here's how their website describes the journey: A unique challenge of a lifetime up Africa’s 2nd highest peak – Mount Kenya, an extinct volcano wi


With a Kenya Visa, You Can Stand Face-to-Face With Wildlife On Crescent Island

July 21st, 2010
Most African wildlife parks require visitors to give wildlife a wide berth, preferably viewing them from the relative comfort and safety of an automobile or from behind  a fence. With predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas around, it's easy to see why. However, at Crescent Island on Kenya's Lake Naivasha, the barriers between you and some of the largest and most beautiful animals in Africa vanish. On Crescent Island, you can get as close as you like to many of the animals, so you're almost guaranteed to come back with great stories and spectacular photos. In a recent article, New York Times travel writer Alexis Okeowo explains what makes the place so special: Crescent Island rivals any zoo for diversity: zebras, impalas, giraffes, wildebeests, gazelles, waterbucks, an


Kenyan Visa Requirements for Tourists

February 27th, 2010
Tourism is one of Kenya's most important industries, second only to agriculture.  According to Wikipedia, in the year 2000,  1,036,628 tourists visited Kenya. Tourism receipts for that year were approximately $257 million. Tourism in Kenya is mainly conservation-oriented, with the major draws being wildlife parks, beaches, the Great Rift Valley and coffee plantations.  Kenya has 19 national parks, housing animals like rhinoceros, lions, baboons, flamingos, cheetahs and more. Although tourism revenues declined significantly in 2008 due to the crisis that occurred after the 2007 presidential election,   in April 2008 Kenya was still named Best Leisure Destination award at the World Travel Fair in Shanghai, China. The US Department of State currently has a travel warning issued


Getting a Kenyan Visa: Lions and Leopards and Cheetahs, Oh My!

November 20th, 2009
For pretty much all  of human history, the big cats have been above us in the food chain, and were both feared and revered.  Now, even though humans have climbed to the top of the food chain, big cats continue to be a source of fascination. If you want to see them up close, outside of a zoo, one of the best places in the world to do so is Kora National Park in Kenya. The park is home to an amazing variety of wild cats, including lions, cheetahs, leopards, caracals, servals and African wildcats. The park also has other African wildlife, including hyenas, antelopes, elephants and hippos. Kora National Park is also the final resting place of George Adamson, the conservationist who raised the lion cub in "Born Free." To visit Kenya,  American citizens need both a passport and Ke
