Located in East Africa, the country of Kenya derives its name from the second tallest peak in Africa, Mount Kenya. This lush country gained its independence in 1963. Kenya is famous for its African wildlife, which roams through rolling savannahs, lakeland, mountain highlands, and the famous Great Rift Valley. Kenya’s coast is renowned for its white sandy beaches and clear waters. With 33 national parks and reserves, Kenya enchants thousands of tourists every year.
Kenya’s thriving coral reefs are its best-kept secret. Famous the world over for its wildlife reserves and African safaris, Kenya has more to offer its visitors than lions, giraffes, and elephants. Thanks to the crystal clear, warm waters of the Indian Ocean, and warm air temperatures year-round, scuba diving in Kenya offers the ultimate diving safari experience. The best time to dive in Kenya is October to March when seas are calm, and visibility can reach 30m. Dive into the mysterious underwater world of Kenya and be stunned by the colorful, healthy coral reefs set amongst five marine reserves, fascinating wrecks, and spectacular caves of Vuma Caverns.
