Gwadar- A city with Infinite possibilities


Before we start off with Gwadar, lets get to know a little more about Baluchistan the province in which the City of Gwadar is situated. Baluchistan is one of the 4 provinces(states) of Pakistan, by area it is the largest province and by population it is the smallest, a strange fact that can only be attribute to Baluchistan who is wildly large and deserted yet significantly beautiful and rich with earthly elements.

Geographically Baluchistan has always held its importance as it serves as a gateway between the southern and eastern Asian countries and the oil-rich middle east or MENA. The region is heavily politicized for various reasons like its significant geography and emplacement. But Baluchistan is not restricted to its Geography only frankly if you ask anyone who is ever been to the Province then they will tell you that Baluchistan is all about Culture, heritage and beauty. It is not the biggest province of Pakistan but it also if the Beautiful then one of the beautiful provinces of Pakistan.

But what makes it so different or vital for any traveler to visit, and it all leads to Gwadar.


Gwadar can’t be described without mentioning Baluchistan and Baluchistan is nothing or incomplete without its culture. It is often said that Pakistan is the Land of Culture and Balochi Culture is its Trophy. The most prominent factor is Baluchi culture is their attire and clothing, Baluchi turban and Shalwar Kamiz is often regarded as the pride of a Baluch man. However, it is not only restricted to these two attires only, the clothing and attire listing goes well beyond than just these two.

Then comes their dance and food. It may seem very odd seeing food being regarded as a cultural element but it is true for Baluchistan. What we often witness all around the globe that food is often attributed to the origin but Baluchi food is all about its people and those who cooks it and hence it has become an integral part of their culture. If you ought to visit the land then it will be an oddly coincidence if you don’t see any of the above-mentioned Cultural traits.

The City Itself:

The city of Gwadar is the combination of whole Baluchistan, if described in words it is the Jewel of the entire province. It has the Beauty of Baluchistan, the significant Geography, deep warm water near to its shores and a strong economy. The city is linked with Karachi (the biggest and the most populous city of Pakistan) through a coastal highway along the Arabian Sea that adds more to its beauty, It may not be one of the famous cities but it surely is the city to visit if you’re a travel enthusiasm.  

The Beaches:

Gwadar and Baluchistan is surrounded by the Arabian Sea from one end which just makes it one the longest beach space in South Asia and because of the low population and wide area the beaches are quite, clean and vacant. With Clean water, blue sky, mountainous surroundings and moderately sunny weather it all adds up to a perfect beach environment.

First, Africa is not a country, it is a continent. Of the countries in this beautiful continent is great Kenya. From preserved ancient local cultures across the various sets of diverse tribes to the very “abundantly rare” wildlife and the fascinating landscapes, Kenya has overtime been poised as the Tourism hub of the world. The presence of iconic landmarks such as tall mountains, the savannah, forests, waterfalls, tropics and beautiful lakes are a sight to behold.

A lot of its fame is gotten from being the leading wildlife and conservation parks on planet earth. This accounts for a huge chunk of Kenya’s foreign exchange revenue, right next to agriculture.

Due to the presence of ancient relics and artefacts, Kenya has also earned itself the nickname “Cradle of Mankind”, the people of Kenya are one of the earliest people to exist on planet earth and a lot has been learnt about ancient human history from them.

So let me be your guide through the earliest cradles of civilization, here are reasons why you should cancel every other vacation plan and visit Kenya



Not only is visiting Kenya pocket-friendly, but you also get as much satisfaction as travelling to any of the previous tourism countries, if not more. The cost of travelling is also economically decent, the food is less expensive, the hotels are very comfortable, affordable and properly maintained. 


The large expanse of land, wildlife, lakes, hills, waterfall and colourful vegetation is a very pleasing sight to behold, the way nature blends in its natural, undisturbed form have a sort of therapeutic feeling on the nerves. So, when travelling, make it a note to be awake when you are closer to the country. Trust me, it is not a sight you want to be missing out on.


There are various tours that give you direct access to Kenya’s diverse groups of tribes and their cultural practices.

You also get to watch closely the art of bead making, hairdressing, textiles and their food preparation. As a plus, these tribes are mostly living in beautifully designed nature-friendly locations. The views from the accommodations are also very stunning. Mechanical transportation is also very cheap


From the Great Rift Valley to the rustic beaches, the great lakes, mild weather, beautiful mountains and observing the great migration of gazelles around the June/ July period, nature dazes you with its striking brilliance. The great rift valley has birthed a lot of unearthed fossils notable of high archaeological value and history, it also inhabits various rare animals like the

white rhino, leopard, flamingos and giraffes.  The warmth that accompanies the beautiful scenery can be quite compensating.

There’s also the allure of hiking, zip-lining, trekking, marathons and various other activities to get the adrenaline flowing. Kenya has an astounding amount of mountains e.g. Mount Kenya, Mount Longonot and Mount Elgon to mention but a few but most importantly the Kilimanjaro, though in Tanzania, it can be viewed from various highpoints in Kenya.

The most important part of tourism in Kenya is its wildlife. 

Kenya’s games and reserves are habitats to the largest groups of diverse animals in the world, from Elephants at the Amboseli National Park to herbivores such as zebras, antelopes, buffaloes, hippopotamus, rhinoceros and warthogs to the very animals at the top of the food chain; the lions, leopards, cheetahs and various others. If you have ever wanted to explore Nat Geo Wild in its rawest forms, there you have it. The parks and games employ safety precautions and barriers plus adequate transportation for the maximum comfort of the tourist. There’s also the fact that it is pretty cool you are helping with the funding for the preservation of wildlife and anti-poaching. 

Deep diving and exploration of underwater animals for animals such as zebrafish, snapper, scorpionfish and various others are other avenues to explore.


Everything about Kenya is not about wildlife. Nairobi, the capital of Kenya also known as “green city in the sun” is a cosmopolitan city having the best of accommodations, gardens, parks, cinemas and leisure centres plus a variety of deliciously cooked meals in various restaurants. With the ease of transportation and navigation, Nairobi is really one place to mark in the bucket list and here are quite a few places you can visit in Nairobi:
