Travel Is Back! 3 Countries You Can Now Travel To From Kenya

Travel Is Back! 3 Countries You Can Now Travel To From Kenya

 

BY HARPREET ACHARYA

The world is opening!
Travel is not just a dream anymore and this is welcome
news for all that thrive on exploring and experiencing our
beautiful planet.
As countries were closed during the pandemic, and rules
on PCR Tests and entry requirements were constantly
changing, many have been uncertain about booking
international travel.
The silver lining is that despite the continuing threat of the
virus, most countries are opting to open their borders and
allowing a “new normal” to slowly occur.
What is it like to travel now in 2022?
As expected, travel has changed post-pandemic. Despite
open borders there are still entry rules in place, which can
change at any given time, but if you do your research,
travel is possible.
Where can I go from Kenya?
If you are ready to take the plunge and explore again, here
are three countries that you can travel to:
1. The United Kingdom

Currently the easiest to access with direct flights from
Nairobi and no Covid-19 related paperwork required,
whether you are fully-vaccinated or not.
London is a melting pot of cultures where there is always a
new experience to be had.
Some quintessential experiences in London:
– Hop on to a red bus and play tourist: see all the iconic
London landmarks like the London Eye, Big Ben,
Houses of Parliament;
– Visit Borough Market to buy and try artisan products;
– Visit the theatre district and watch a musical;
– Have afternoon tea at one of the many London hotels.
From the whimsical to the truly decadent, there is
something to suit all tastes; and
– Wander around some of the famous department
stores like Selfridges and Harrods. Even if you don’t
buy anything, make sure you check out their food
halls which are some of the best in the world!
2. Turkey
This beautiful country straddling Asia and Europe that is
also open to all international tourists. Currently, fully
vaccinated tourists do not need to have a negative PCR
Test to enter and only need to fill in a passenger entry
form.
When in Turkey:
– Visit Istanbul

Explore the breathtaking Blue Mosque and the Hagia
Sofia, before making your way to wander in the colourful
chambers of the Topkapi Palace. Take a cruise along the
Bosphorus which separates two continents and finish off
your day at the Grand Bazaar meandering around in the
world’s biggest and oldest covered markets.
– Explore Cappadocia
A short flight away from Istanbul lies the magical world of
fairy chimneys rising from the sand-coloured earth.
Experience cave dwelling, take a hot air balloon ride at
sunrise or simply sit on the terrace of your cave hotel and
be enchanted by the sight of thousands of balloons filling a
cotton candy sky. Satisfy your inner adrenaline junkie by
riding an ATV amidst the fairy chimneys in Love Valley
and the Red and Rose Valleys.
– Indulge your inner History buff in Ephesus
These ancient ruins are well preserved and are home to
the Celsus Library, the third largest library of the ancient
world.
3. South Africa
For those that want to explore the African continent, Cape
Town is a good option.
Currently, you need a vaccination certificate confirming
you have received at least one dose of an approved
vaccine.
What to do in Cape Town:

Explore the V&A Waterfront, take a cable car up to Table
Mountain, visit the Cape of Good Hope, see where the
Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic at Cape Agulhas. Go
whale watching in Hermanus Bay and see penguins on
Boulders Beach. Drive along one of the most scenic
routes in the world along Chapmans Peak Drive and
indulge your inner oenophile by exploring the winelands of
Franschhoek.
