Not a Zoo like South Africa, not a bush discoteque like some lodges in Tanzania (with South African owners) - only the real thing, spiced with smiling locals.

Kenya's great for an organised safari. If you are self-driving Southern Africa is much cheaper and easier, as are Uganda and Rwanda.

Kenya deserves to be explored and appreciated by the more adventurous traveler for its scenic beauty alone. While the wildlife is by-and-large confined to reserves, they are spectacular in their relative naturalness and abundance of flora and fauna.

Kenya is fine for a packaged safari tour.
Overall rating
4/5

Kenya has been the classic safari destination for decades. The tourism infrastructure is well developed, so options abound. One can witness the highlights of Kenya on a budget group safari, indulge in the luxury of a private tour, or embark on a rugged exploration of remote Northern Kenya. The people are friendly, the food is tasty, and the scenery is fabulous. However, industrial tourism has taken its toll on the experience. Entrance fees (ask for an itemized list of your package tour costs) to the parks are outrageously expensive. Mini vans crowd around predator sightings, and the neglected remote parks have fallen victim to poaching.

wild honeymoon
Overall rating
5/5

Always present sun and wild animals (including birds of all colours from the rainbow) created unforgettable atmosphere and wetted appetite to see even more. On safari we travelled in a car with big windows enabling to admire the landscape. Stopping 2 meters away from a lioness basking in the sun was breathtaking. Kenyan guide was very polite, helpful and tried to answer all possible questions, which seemed to be endless like the scenery around us. It was definitely our best decision to go for our honeymoon.

The road to Marsh is an adventure in itself. If thats what your looking for...go there. If you want to experience an all inclusiv holliday... don't go there.
From Archers post to Moyale the scenery is like a dessert and the road wil eat your car but for how long? The chinees are building a road so nice you won't believe what you see. People are friendly but in this area also robberies occur so you need protection from a soldier or police officer.
The food we have been eating, we brought our own. The campsite of KWS was fine, they have showers, and sanitation was fine.
The weather was very warm. The wildlife is basic out the of the park but in the parks there's a lot of game to be seen.
If you want to drive to Ethiopia and further you need to heve your paper work ready before you go there. For us it was not possible to cross the border.

There have been a number of new parks in Africa the last years, but Kenya still has an advantage in terms of tourist facilities, good roads and connections.

Kenya is one the the best place to plan a good safari, unfortunately in the last few years mass tourism has ruined the real Safari mood.
