Kenya’s cultural mosaic is Africa in miniature, with almost every main African tongue spoken and over forty distinct ethnic groups. Kenya is one of the only places in Africa where you can watch a lion-kill in the morning, then drift over coral reefs in a glass-bottomed boat off tropical Mombasa in the afternoon.

Diving in Kenya

Along the entire Kenyan coast stretches a vast fringing coral reef protected from overfishing and development in many places by Marine Park laws. Parts of this reef have been visibly damaged by el Nino, however, rumours of slack policing within the Marine Parks is another possible contributing factor. But even in the affected areas, once you get past 10m depth there lies a wealth of colourful hard and soft corals together with a tremendously diverse marine fauna. The positive signs of regrowth are definately in place. Don’t arrive expecting boundless landscapes of luxurious coral carpeting draped over the seabed. A fringing reef tends to stretch along a coastline and is mainly patchy areas of coral with some stunningly active coral heads teeming with life.

If you’re looking for the big blue experience, dramatic walls, with a constant 30m visibility and large pelagics on every dive, you will be dissappointed. Whalesharks can be spotted in the season but not often. If you can accept that these encounters are rare, and you are interested enough to content yourself with ‘smaller’ reef life, Kenya has much to offer.

Perhaps it is your starting point already, but combining your diving adventure with a safari to one of the beautiful national parks such as the Masai Mara is an absolute must.

East Africa has a lot to offer if you like nature. The incredible topside and underwater adventures are sure to provide you with an exhilarating and enriching experience that will create a lifetime of memories

Location of Kenya

Larger than Germany, equatorial Kenya has five neighbours and three major water bodies, the azure Indian Ocean, Lake Victoria and Lake Turkana.

We are planning a one-day tree planting and bush fun expedition to a place called Ivovoani Bush Farm, Makueni (110km from Nairobi in April 2018 and possibly October 2018. We will have Kenyan and international green warriors on the trip.

Each participant will pay her own transport. The project must pay for itself.

Event will be in be rainy season. We need a tour bus that can handle off road in mud. Sand trucks make it so 4×4 is not necessary but is welcome if pricing is ok.
