Kenya is known for its outstanding safaris, but take it from Chrissie: This beautiful country has even more to offer. Her five travel tips will satisfy your wanderlust and have you feeling like a local in no time.


To Stay: Sleep in contemporary comfort at the Tribe Hotel, and shop for locally made goods at the nearby open-air Masai Market.

To Eat: Work up an appetite biking through the Tigoni tea plantations before a farm-to-table lunch at Brown’s Cheese estate, which includes plenty of wine (and cheese, natch).

To Drink: Throw back some sundowners with the cowboys at the legendary Talisman, then head crosstown for some decidedly urban revelry (and a fresh breeze) at Alchemist Bar.

To Explore: Spend an afternoon at the Kitengela Glass Factory, where locals upcycle glass into whimsical décor that feels straight out of your favorite Tim Burton film.

To Adventure: Escape the crowds in Masai Mara and head north to Lewa Conservancy. Savvy safari-goers love this Savannah, home of the Samburu tribe, where elephants and rhinos can roam freely.
