Tourism board recommends snorkelling as part of Kenyan adventure holidays
There are many opportunities in Kenya for those planning adventure holidays, with one of the more popular being diving trips just off the coast, according to the country's tourism body.
Angie Sloan, director of the Kenya Tourist Board in the United Kingdom, noted that the east African country is home to many ideal diving spots.
"The Kisite-Mpunguti marine reserve covers 39 square kilometres of ocean and is established around [the] beautiful Wasini Island, an ideal day trip for divers and snorkelers," she said.
"The reserve has some of the best dive sites on the coast including the Nyali Reef, a coral reef dive with tidal currents, and Kisite Point, a 12 metre dive ideal for an encounter with bottlenose dolphins and hawksbill turtles."
Figures recently released by the Kenya Tourist Board show that arrivals in Kenya from across the United Kingdom increased by more than ten per cent in the first quarter of this year.
