Kenya travel guide: Kenya is home to the safari tradition and the country’s rich wildlife and spectacular landscapes bewitch even the most seasoned visitors.

The country has a constructive climate (sunny year-round and only moderately wet), friendly people, and colorful tribal culture.


The best way to travel to Kenya is by air. You can easily find flights to Kenya and cheap domestic flights. As always, it’s best to book your flights early to get the best prices.


Most hotels in Kenya are found in Nairobi (the capital) and Mombasa and range from luxury to budget. Those on a shoestring can find hostels, bed & breakfasts and campsites with good facilities.

Safari bound tourists have a good choice of Kenya safari lodges, which are found in major safari destinations such as Maasai Mara, Amboseli and Tsavo.

Kenya vacation rentals e.g., apartments, resorts, cottages and villas are ideal for self-catering accommodation.

Car Rental

You can readily hire a car for a self-drive safari or town use. A 4WD vehicle is recommended for safaris, as most roads in the wildlife parks are not paved.

For airport transfers and to travel in urban centers you can hire a taxicab.
