Could you ever imagine riding a tortoise? But this is possible in Kenya. You could enjoy the ride on big turtles at the North Coast of Mombasa along the Mombasa Malindi road. What’s amazing is you could hold a baby crocodile and tortoise here. In Nairobi Mamba Village, you could see the ostrich farm and take a boat ride in the lake. 

If you are planning to visit Kenya anytime soon, then don’t forget to ride on the Giant tortoise. Understandably people believe that these creatures have super strength. But they are evolved to carry their weight and not the extra weight that is sometimes out on them. 

A heavyweight could injure their legs. They are strong but should never be ridden. However, small kids riding a tortoise is fine. But it is strongly not recommended if you are an adult.

4. Dolphin - Florida
