Kenya and Tanzania

Here's a real-life experience of what it feels like on 'Animal Planet' live! The genuine heart of Africa, Kenya embodies everything you've imagined this wonderful continent to be, and some more. Granted, with its dense forests and abundant wildlife, it seems a scene right out of 'Wild Kingdom', but like nature itself, Kenya hides its treasures well.
Spectacular sanctuaries aside, an hour's flight out of Nairobi would take you to empty white sandy beaches at Diani, Watamu or Lamu.
Home to the very notion of conservation itself, Kenya is all about wildlife sanctuaries and national parks. After a near holocaust thanks to poaching in 1980, Kenya is now a pioneer in the safety of numerous endangered species. Once you've visited our recovering friends at National Parks like Amboseli, Masai Mara and more, complete with your fair share of history at the Lamu Museum, rediscover Kenya's hidden attractions. Feed the endangered Rothschild giraffes through the windows of Giraffe Manor or try out exotic meats at the Carnivore Restaurant.

Things to do

Game Drive at Maasai Mara National Reserve - Drive to the lower scenic Mau escarpment road, into the Great Rift Valley to the spectacular 1,792-square-km Maasai Mara National Reserve and set off on a game drive through the savannah, rolling grasslands, and forests around the Mara River.

Lake Naivasha - Naivasha is a Maasai word for 'rough water', description enough for the rough storms that stir up these waters. With over 400 species of birds, and of course the hippos, memory space on your camera is going to be more precious than you thought.

Jungle Safari at Aberdare National Park - Steep forested ravines and open moorlands characterize the picturesque Aberdare National Park. Watch animals come streaming into floodlit waterholes and saltlicks.From large bull elephants and rhinos to warthogs and tiny squirrels, there's something in it for everyone.

rightimgHad a super trip, starting with Titu Roy making all the arrangements and answering the innumerable questions. We stayed at the Sopa Lodges in Amboseli, Naivasha and Mara. These were lovely. We enjoyed the comfort and the service at all the lodges and especially the fantastic locations. Naivasha Sopa was the most luxurious and the grounds were awesome. We were right near the lake and the experience of seeing 30 to 40 Hippos grazing on the lawns at night is unforgettable. Mucheri our driver and guide were great. He was very informative and good fun. Many many thank to un[travel] and Safari trails for making our trip so memorable.rightimg

Best time to visit June to October & January to February

Kenya is one of the few nations which have braved all odds to become what it is now and becomes Continent's emerging tourist destinations. Its rich and diverse landscapes, wildlife and cultures allure tourists from far-off places. January is an excellent time to spot wildlife. Temperatures are hot but there will be slight drizzles to cool things down. Summer, from December through March is the optimum and the best time for safari and wildlife viewing. The annual migration of wildlife beasts between Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and Maasai Mara National Park in Kenya takes place between July and October. Migration reaches the Masai Mara in July and remains until October when they recede to the Serengeti in Tanzania. The southern part of Kenya enjoys rainy seasons in the end of April to mid-July and from September to mid-October. In the north, it is from July to September. This season also can be good times to travel as there are fewer visitors and you can admire the striking emerald vegetation of Kenya. December can good view of migratory birds and new born animals. The rains are pretty much unpredictable here in kenya. If you are planning to hit the beaches, Untravel recommends you to avoid the coastline during the March to late May season, as temperatures and rainfall are at their peak.

December 13.5/26.90 C
January 12.9/29.10 C
February 13.9/30.10 C
March 14.8/30.40 C
April 15.7/27.80 C
May 14.5/26.20 C

How to reach

Air

  • There are five main airports in Kenya, and a number of airstrips. Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is the main international airport, and it is located in capital Nairobi. Comparatively the most fastest and comfortable manner of transportation in Kenya is by planes.

  • There are a few domestic airlines to choose from that link the most popular safari destinations and provide services to cities.

Road

  • Many of the roads in rural part are not in good condition, particularly in the wet seasons when these roads often become impassable.

  • Untravel recommends you to avoid driving in Kenyan roads. Take a taxi instead.

  • Travelling at night can be dangerous, as there are threats of carjacking and road accidents.

  • If you're on a budget, buses are the best and cheapest way to travel. Large buses and privately owned minibuses (matatus) cut across the country and link the major towns.

  • If you want to travel shorter distances, your best bet would be a Bicycle taxi or a tuk-tuk.
