That’s right, Kenya has free magazines! Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, Pinterest and several other social media are great tools to discover what a country has to offer, and Kenya makes no exception. But, still, the good “old press” can give you a more deep and detailed view of specific locations or peculiar activities. And when these magazines are freely available online … well, not giving them a good read is really a pity. So have a look at a glance to a few of them, you can well end up subscribing to their paper version, because they really are very interesting and worth the money.
From their website: “Nomad magazine is an East Africa travel magazine aimed at a new breed of traveller seeking inspiration on places to go and things to do. Every month, the Nomad team will bring readers diverse and exciting content on destinations, road trips, interviews with well-known gures, weekend escapes and more from around the region.
Nomad Magazine is published by EatOut. EatOut’s publishing journey began with Yummy, a food and drinks magazine that spoke to Kenya’s urban elite. Over the past three years, Yummy has established a reputation as a consistently high-quality publication on which both advertisers and readers can rely and is now distributed in both Kenya and Uganda.”
