Resorts are to the north and south of the city. All-inclusive resorts and hotels can be found in Malindi, Diani, Watamu and Lamu. Kenya is also famous for its safaris and game parks such as Tsavo East and Tsavo West, which offer visitors the chance to see the 'big five game': lions, African elephants, Cape buffalos, leopards and rhinoceros.

popular attraction is Karen Blixen's house in the suburbs of Nairobi. The author of the famous book Out of Africa established a coffee plantation here in 1914.
