There are at least three things to consider when traveling in Kenya. One, where you are going. Two, who you are going with. And three, where you can get the perfect Instagram pic. So get your cameras ready and take a look at the best Kenyan spots to get that wow factor for the ‘gram.


African Heritage House


The African Heritage House is a cultural hot spot for residents of Nairobi and visitors alike. It is located on top of a hill looking over the Nairobi National Park and it was built by Alan Donovan between 1989 and 1994. What sets this house apart is the collection of artifacts from all around Africa, so diverse and valuable that it has turned the house into a national monument.There are different rooms that can be found here that are each decorated in a wide array of styles that represent different African cultures.

How to get there: If using public means from Nairobi, take matatu number 111 from the Railway Station terminus. You can then walk or hire a boda boda (motorbike) to Ngong Police Station, the starting point for a hike.

Lamu Island


The historic Swahili town has a lot to offer for any traveler. You’ll probably never run out of awesome pictures while in Lamu. There’s lots to capture from the beach to the perfect sunsets, for example. In addition, the amazing architecture everywhere will have you constantly snapping your camera.

How to get there:

By road: Get on Mombasa Road (A109) and follow it till you get to Mombasa. Take the ferry to Lamu Island and then head straight to your destination.
