5 Places to Visit in East Africa

Pemba Island, Zanzibar

There’s a myriad of exciting activities you can engulf yourself in on this tiny Zanzibari island - from exploring Vumawimbi beach and the Ngezi forest, to going snorkelling off Misali island. A must-visit if Zanzibar is on your vacation list.

Lake Naivasha, Kenya

Part of the Great Rift Valley, Lake Naivasha is a stunning and picturesque freshwater lake in Nakuru county, north west of Nairobi, that is home to a sizeable population of hippos, a variety of types of wildlife and over 400 different species of bird including the areas trademark pink flamingos. Natural wonders abound in this scenic 

Lalibela, Ethiopia

Eleven rock-hewn churches, each carved entirely out of a single block of granite with its roof at ground level, can be found in the sacred town of Lalibela in northern Ethiopia. With a predominantly Orthodox Christian population, Lalibela is one of Ethiopia’s holiest cities, second only to Aksum, and is a center of pilgrimage for much of the country.

Kasubi Tombs, Uganda

Located on Kasubi hill, in Uganda’s capital city of Kampala, the Kasubi Tombs site is an active religious place in the Buganda Kingdom that is of great cultural significance to the Baganda. To them, the Kabaka is the “unquestioned symbol of spiritual, political, and social state of the Buganda nation.” As the burial ground for the previous four Kabakas (kings of the Kingdom of Buganda), the Kasubi Tombs is a site where the Kabaka and others in the Buganda hierarchy often carry out important centuries-old Ganda cultural rituals.

Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre, Rwanda

A painful place to visit, the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre is an incredibly important historical site for not just Rwandans, but for all of us as it stands as a reminder of the brutality that we humans can inflict on each other. Opened on the 10th Anniversary of the Rwandan Genocide, in April 2004, and built on a site where over 250,000 genocide victims were buried in mass gravesthe centre commemorates the Rwandan genocide that occurred in 1994.
