One of the best ways to view this life is to go scuba diving and snorkeling. There are a host of professional establishments that will help you do that both safely and satisfactorily.
DAY 4-MARAFA HELL’S KITCHEN
There are hardly any daytime tours through Marafa Hell’s Kitchen because of the sweltering temperatures that can drive one mad. However, if you are okay with roughing it a little, a visit to this ever-expanding canyon made out of sandstone will transport you to an alien world that was once the site of many Giriama rituals. The canyon is not only picturesque and something straight out of a James Cameron film but it is also one of the most grandiose natural landforms apart for the Rift Valley.
DAY 5-GEDI RUINS
Who wouldn’t want to explore a lost city? There are very few places in Kenya that inspire awe and conjure up mysterious conspiracy theories like the Gedi Ruins in Malindi. No one really knows the real story about these ruins except that it was once the center of a highly skilful community (at least as far as their construction skills are concerned). Within the ruins today, you will find a palace, several coral-brick houses and one of the most impressive mosques this side of the Sahara.
Thought to date back to the 13th century, the Gedi Ruins amazes even the most astute of archaeologists. What baffles many people is how such an ancient community had such an advanced city. Not only do the ruins speak to a highly organized city planning system but there is evidence that they had running water, well-maintained streets and even flushing toilets.
Among the many mysterious and “out of place” findings by archaeologists include:
Ming Chinese vases.
