Kenya and Tanzania

Home to the very notion of conservation itself, Kenya is as much about conservancies as it is about the safaris. After a near holocaust thanks to poaching in 1980s, Kenya is now a pioneer in the safety of numerous endangered species. At un[travel], we promote safaris at conservancies that places communities at the center of wildlife conservation. By improving conservation incentives and involving the local community, conservancies in Kenya are protecting livelihoods while conserving the wildlife. From community conservancies in Maasai Mara to the private conservancies in Laikipia Nature Conservancy, Ol Pejeta Wildlife Conservancy and Rukinga, impact tourism finds meaning in Kenya.

Team un[travel] designed an absolutely unforgettable trip to Kenya for us newly weds. Each and every detail was considered when they made the schedule. Kenya was definitely an offbeat destination. You guys managed it beautifully! Having seen Masai Mara on tv, we felt as if we were in one of Nat Geo's videos! A special thanks to Mayank from the team un[travel] and Douglas who was our guide there for all the support provided.

Had 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.

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.

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.
