    While doing some research on the wine routes in South Africa, I came across two interesting places in Kenya and wanted to ask if anyone has visited either the mysterious Gede Ruins or the Kipepeo Butterfly project located next to the ruins. The butterfly project breeds the beauties that inhabit the Arabuko-Sokoke forest.

    Interesting to hear about these ruins now because I've never heard of them before. Looking at pictures of the ruins they look amazing. If I was to travel to Kenya I sure know now what to add to my itinerary. I wish they would market ruins like these because Kenya is much more than safaris and the Maasai Mara.

    getting to Gede Ruins

    This place is easy to get to via public transport from Malindi/Watamu. Gede ruins are quite a hidden Kenyan treasure and not much is known about them which is why when you get there you want to get a guide at the entrance for better understanding of the site. Take food with you like bananas and stuff like that for the cheeky monkeys.

    South Africa is so diverse with extraordinary beaches, mountain ranges, historic locations, wildlife, Kruger National Park, scenic garden routes and extensive winelands . The country is a blend of modern casinos and businesses with ancient cultures. I'd never heard of the Gede ruins or the Kipeoeo Butterfly Project before researching the country and both would be on my list of places to experience.

    I would love to go on one of the coastal jaunts through South Africa. I would visit some beaches (with those amazing mountains in the background), stop at some wineries, and check out the wildlife at the national parks. Plus, there's plenty to do in Cape Town along Table Bay. The city is getting quite popular with foodies.

    You're exactly right, Vicolette. There's so much to do in South Africa!

    I think a trip to South Africa would encompass just about everything someone could want on a vacation. I consider Kenya to be an all-inclusive vacation.

    Wanderer, this would be the way I'd like to travel. Take a look at the luxurious Blue Train. that travels across the country. That would be the way to go!
