Kenya Travel Information

Where Safari Starts

Kenya is a captivating destination for safari enthusiasts, renowned for its breathtaking landscapes, diverse wildlife, and vibrant culture. A safari in Kenya promises an unforgettable adventure that allows you to witness the incredible biodiversity of this East African nation.

When to Go

Kenya offers a year-round safari experience, but the best time to visit depends on your priorities. The Great Migration in the Maasai Mara typically occurs between July and October, attracting crowds of wildlife enthusiasts. If you prefer a quieter experience, consider visiting during the shoulder seasons, such as November to March, when the weather is milder and the landscapes are lush.


National Parks and Reserves

Kenya boasts a variety of national parks and reserves, each with its unique charm and wildlife. Some of the most popular ones include:

  • Maasai Mara National Reserve: Famous for the annual wildebeest migration and the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino).
  • Amboseli National Park: Known for its stunning views of Mount Kilimanjaro and large elephant herds.
  • Samburu National Reserve: Home to unique wildlife species like the Grevy’s zebra and reticulated giraffe.
  • Tsavo National Park: The largest national park in Kenya, divided into Tsavo East and Tsavo West, with diverse landscapes and wildlife.

Kenya offers a wide range of accommodation options for safari-goers, from luxurious lodges and tented camps to more budget-friendly choices. Many lodges and camps are strategically located within or near national parks, ensuring an immersive experience.


Safari Activities

Safaris in Kenya offer various activities beyond game drives. You can go on guided nature walks, visit local Maasai villages to learn about their culture, or even embark on hot air balloon rides for a unique perspective of the wildlife below.


Health and Safety

It’s important to check the latest health and safety guidelines, including vaccinations and travel advisories before your trip. Malaria is prevalent in many safari areas, so taking antimalarial medication and using insect repellent is essential. Drink bottled water and follow food safety precautions


Visa and Documentation

Check the visa requirements for your nationality before traveling to Kenya. Most tourists will need a visa to enter, which can often be obtained online or upon arrival at the airport.


Packing Essentials

When packing for your safari, consider clothing for both warm days and cooler nights. Lightweight, neutral-colored clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, sunscreen, and a good pair of binoculars are essential items. Don’t forget your camera to capture the incredible wildlife moments.

Respect the local culture and customs, and be mindful of wildlife and ecosystems. Follow your safari guide’s instructions and maintain a safe distance from animals
