Kenya is a true melting pot of culture, heritage, traditions, and some of the largest treasure of natural wonders in the world. The tourism industry has taken great advantage of this, making it a multi-million dollar economic sector. With that being said, Nairobi and other cities in Kenya offer a vast array of things to do and places to see outside of the natural wonders found in the country. Fortunately, AllTheRooms has put together a cool list of reasons to visit Kenya beyond its marvelous wildlife.
The daunting tasks of gathering documents, bank statements, getting an appointment date, being asked a series of questions at the embassy, the uncertainty as you wait for a visa are seemingly reasons enough to steer clear off the globe-trotting route.

The blue book allows you access to 39 countries visa-free and for 29 countries, you can easily get a visa on arrival. Now you can satisfactorily fill up your Kenyan passport with stamps.
