1. Change Currency

When traveling to Kenya it is good to always have your cash changed to the local currency which is Kenya Shillings. This makes it easy for you to pay at the curio shops, supermarkets, restaurants and any other place you go for shopping. However, for the Park Fees non-residents are required to pay in USD either cash or card

2. Flights

We have international flights departing from Jommo Kenyatta International Airport.We also have local flights to Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, Ukunda, Malindi, Lamu, Lodwar e.t.c.However while on Safari to Mara, Amboseli, Samburu or any other National Park/Reserve it is good to use Safari Vans or Land Cruisers so that you can get a good view of the country.

3. Don’t be scared of the Masai Mara

Kenya’s blue chip reserve, the Maasai Mara gets lots of attention in the travel media since it is where the great wildebeest migration takes place between the months of July-October each year. You can also try traveling during the low season starting from April to June to enjoy good rates and still be able to see variety of wildlife and birds.

4. Make the most of Nairobi

Chances are you’ll have to overnight in Nairobi at some point on your Kenya safari so why not make the most of it? A few swishy hotels have appeared on the city centre scene recently but if you’re not a city slicker, choose one of the camps in Nairobi National Park-The Emakoko and Ololo Lodge are both fantastic. A mere 20 kilometres from the city, staying in the park is an easy way to maximise your wildlife experiences for minimal cost. And it’s a pretty good experience too with leopard, lion and rhino roaming the plains against an unusual backdrop of towering skyscrapers. Pretty cool.

5. Other Interesting Places in Kenya

Kenya ha a lot to offer in terms of leisure. We have one of the most beautiful beaches in East Africa that lie along the Coast line. These are; Diani, Bamburi and Watamu.They offer a relaxing atmosphere for rejuvenation.
