Kenya Vacation

To say Kenya appeals to the adventure traveler would be a huge understatement. Kenya tours offer tons of wild activities and experiences, and, much like the exciting neighboring countries of Tanzania and Uganda, exceed expectations at every turn.   Set along the beautiful Indian ocean and boasting a stunning variation of inland scenery, Kenya packs a punch for all visitors. Whether you are traveling alone, with friends or fancy the perfect family safari, Kenya tours cater for all visitors.   Safaris are the main attraction for tours to Kenya and despite the fact the are up there offering some of the best safaris in Africa don’t think that is the only draw.

Kenya Vacation

Kenya Travel Information

Safari in Kenya

Reach new peaks and challenge yourself with an unforgettable climb of Mt. Kenya and observe the Unesco World Heritage site (and Unesco Biosphere reserve) from the soaring height of 4985m. The peak is higher but only attainable by mountaineer experts.

African safaris often entice tourists to Kenya due the renowned Masai Mara game reserve for a view of some of the most attractive wild animals in the world. The 'Great Migration' of wildebeests from the nearby Serengeti reserve of Tanzania is also a magnificent spectacle.

Apart from the abundance of game in the reserve, the Masai Mara, shared with Tanzania, is also one of the top bird-watching destinations on the planet. You can either observe those birds from the ground or gain an authentic African experience by searching the plains from the vantage point of your hot air balloon.

Learn about the Masai tribe's culture at the Masai museum in Hell's Gate National Park, before setting off on the unique cycling or walking safari where any one of the big five may be lurking around the corner. Along with a large amount of African wildlife, Hell's Gate tours are equally as prestigious for the scintillating scenery on offer, with breath-taking gorges and basalt columns.

In addition to these Kenyan safaris, the Tsavo East National Park and Longonot National Park also provide great opportunities to experience the ultimate African experience and a great chance to see the great animals in Kenya.

Kenya tours are not complete without a trip to the mesmerizing beauty of the Indian ocean. Find rare underwater life as you snorkel the mind-blowing corals of the Kenyan coast.

Culture of Kenya

Culture in Kenya is really determined by the community/tribe that you come across, many offering different ritual ceremonies and traditional dishes.

 

The staple Kenyan meals often consist of Ugali (cornmeal), Sukuma Wiki (greens) and many different rice  and bean dishes.

The traditional Kenyan attire is often brightly colored and will differentiate the community that you are in.

 

What time of the year is it best to visit Kenya?

 

The best time to visit Kenya is during the dry seasons - January-March and July-October.

For wildlife in particular, the greatest time to go is anywhere between July and October.

The worst months to visit Kenya are generally considered to be around April-May.

Kenya Reviews Of Our Travellers

Andrea H., January 2020

Heike was fabulous in tailoring a trip to meet our needs. She answered every query promptly and was very reassuring. As a destination expert the trip that Heike developed for us met and needs and wishes perfectly. Our 6 day trip from Nairobi to Lake Naivasha, Masai Mara returning to Nairobi was amazing. Our guide, Kargo was wonderful and Heike planned our trip to perfection. The accommodation was spectacular. After 22 days camping we were regretting our choice of budget accommodation with Heike, but the 'budget accommodation' was amazing. The staff, rooms and food at Hotel Rudi and Mwanzo Lodge Naivasha was fabulous and luxurious. Maji Moto Eco Camp and Fisi Camp were both stunningly located and fantastic staff. We recommended Heike to other travellers before our trip began due to being so impressed with the service and our tailored itinerary and will continue to do so. The Mara was spectacular and a must destination for a Kenyan safari.

Kenya/Tanzania Oct 2019 (from Canada)
We travelled to Kenya/Tanzania in Oct 2019. Planning through Soul of Tanzania was a breeze! Lidia was our contact person and extremely helpful. Her responses were prompt and professional. Very flexible with changes to the itinerary or accommodations. And she kept me informed at every step along the way which was very appreciated. Lidia even called to check on us a couple times along our route to ensure things were going well.
Kenya
The Kenya portion of our trip was provided by Spirit of Kenya.
The vehicle was a van (vs a safari jeep) with a pop up roof. The van was a bit older, but still got the job done.
Raphael was our guide. There were a lot of times we were unable to hear everything he was telling us – mostly because of the noise in the van.
Our accommodations were as expected, permanent tented sites. Clean and comfortable. Meals provided on the site were good. The lunches provided were not as expected. We anticipated a warm lunch as was described through Soul of Tanzania. However what was received were box lunches with a sandwich, piece of chicken and piece of fruit. Good, but a little disappointing.
Tanzania
Our safari vehicle in Tanzania was clean and comfortable. It was a safari jeep with a pop up roof.
Elinasi was our guide. He was great! So much information was given to us about the animals and birds that we saw. Lots of interesting facts. Elinasi was very clear with any decisions we needed to make along the way and strived to make our tour exactly what we were looking for…. Including trying to beat our record of 20 lions in a day and finding a couple leopards in a tree for me! (that happened twice!)
The lunches provided were good. It was nice to have the table set with a cloth and dishes and to have a warm meal while others around were having boxed sandwich meals.
Accommodations were what was anticipated (some were better). Permanent tented sites, good meals and some wildlife during the night. Perfect!
Overall, I would recommend Soul of Tanzania to anyone looking for ease of planning and a wonderful safari experience. Be sure to ask for Lidia in the office and Elinasi as your guide.
