    Thank you so much I didn’t know.

    This is such a helpful list, thank you. The only downside is all require long flights, can be expensive. But if someone has never travelled out of Kenya this is a good place to start because at least you will not be refused a visa.
    I also suggest Europe if one is able to get a Schengen visa. You can create an itinerary of several countries at a time. Research on how to connect from one place to the next by bus or train.
