Kenya

KENYA

Kenya is the gate way into East Africa. With a huge selection of African overland trips and Kenya Budget Safaris starting and ending in Nairobi. Regular and cheap flights make flying into Nairobi to start your African adventure a great choice. The country is a traditional destination that will win over the hearts of anyone looking for an authentic African adventure. On the coastal side of the country, you will experience warm tropical climate, in the grasslands and closer to Mount Kenya you will experience cooler weather and even snow, and the inland areas encompass a humid and dry climate.

Masai Mara National Reserve

Kenya’s most famous reserve, sitting along its Southern Border, is actually a continuation of the Serengeti National Reserve in Tanzania. It is one of the activities you have to do if you’re visiting Kenya. A wild variety of wild life is viewable at any time of the year, although between July and November, you will experience the famous wildebeest migration. This happens every year when over 200 million wildebeest migrate from the Serengeti National Park into the Masai Mara National park to look for greener pastures. It is truly a magical experience for all who have the opportunity of witnessing it.

Mount Kenya

While Mount Kilimanjaro might be Africa’s highest peak, that doesn’t stop Mount Kenya from being equally as breath taking. The hikes are normally a bit shorter than those of Kilimanjaro and you will get a great photo opportunity with a sign marking the equator which runs right through the Mount Kenya National Park.

Mombasa

For those who prefer to be in the water, Mombasa is a great place for scuba diving and other aquatic activities. Enjoy the beaches from the shoreline or venture into the water and experience the world of scuba diving and snorkeling at the Mombasa Marine National Park. Don’t want to get wet but still want to experience the sea life? Try taking one of the glass bottomed boats and view the ocean from above.

From Ocean Life, to snow-capped mountains, to the big 5 and the wildebeest migration – Kenya offers an unforgettable experience to those who love overland and adventure travel. You can find an overland adventure or budget safari through Kenya in our tour lists below.
