Probably due to its long colonial heritage, Kenya is almost unique among African safari destinations (South Africa is the other) in offering a wide range of sporting activities to complement the basic game viewing experience.
Thus there is golf available in certain destinations (OK - not anywhere near South Africa's standard in this respect), together with quite a range of horse riding opportunities - not to mention camel riding as well.
Quite a few places offer the opportunity to rent a mountain bike for a few hours' leisurely exploration of the local area (where, hopefully, you won't need to discover whether a mountain bike is faster than a lion).
If you're feeling really energetic then there is the annual, and legendary, Safaricom Marathon, set in the fabulous Lewa wildlife conservancy area (yes, but can you run faster than a lion?).
Then there's white water rafting, sky diving and so on, if you're really determined to exert yourself out in Kenya.
Probably Kenya’s second most visited game reserve, Amboseli contains an unusually wide variety of habitats and wildlife – in particular the majestic elephant.
Combining a languorous beach holiday with the excitement of a game viewing safari must be the ultimate African holiday experience.
Originally set up by the late David Craig as a Black Rhino sanctuary, Lewa has become one of Africa's most exciting centres of biodiversity, home to Grevy's Zebra, and Oryx.
