What Camps & Lodges do you use in Kenya?

We're careful with our choice of safari camps and lodges in Kenya but luckily there is plenty of quality choice.

Your Kenya safari accommodation options include boutique, luxury safari camps, eco-camps, permanent tented camps and mobile or adventure camps.

Safari Lodges in Kenya are generally something akin to a mid-range hotel room, with similar facilities. Many have swimming pools.

Kenya's boutique lodges and camps can be very stylish and smart in terms of design and decor, often with very spacious rooms. Some feature private plunge pools.

Safari Camps in Kenya normally consists of heavy canvas luxury tents with fixed roofs and en-suite facilities with shower and flush toilets.

Eco-camps and smaller tented camps also have insect-proof tents, with beds, bedding, en-suite bathrooms and safari showers.

The atmosphere is usually very convivial with communal dining and camp fires in the evening. The focus is on the wildlife viewing.

Camps often have 'safari showers' which are private cubicles in the tents. Water is heated by the staff who will then let you know your shower is ready and fill your bucket. You control the flow of water.

Adventure camps are much more basic, with smaller, mobile dome-tents with mattresses on the floor. There is no en-suite. It's akin to summer camping in the UK. You'll need your own sleeping bags and towels. There is some degree of 'roughing it' with the camping but otherwise the safari facilities are the same - so it's a great way to save if you're happy campers!

This particular itinerary is based on staying in luxury safari accommodation.

What about taking bags on Safari Flights?

Luggage should be kept to a minimum, especially if you will be travelling via light aircraft.

In East Africa the limit is typically 15 kg per person. This should be in soft bags as opposed to hard suit cases in order to fit in the baggage compartment on small aircraft.

On road safaris the weight and size allowance is not as important but you should still try to bring as little as possible.

What Clothing is Suitable on Safari?

For game viewing it's best to wear grey, brown, khaki or green coloured clothing so the wildlife is not alerted to your presence.

Camouflage clothing is not permitted in some countries so bear that in mind.

A complimentary laundry service is offered at many camps and lodges so bear that in mind when deciding what to take with you.

We have a more detailed 'packing suggestions' in our Travel Essentials section.

What are the Safari Vehicles like?

Various types of game drives vehicles are used for safaris in Kenya, depending on the kind of trip you have booked.

Game drives may be shared with other guests, typically up to a maximum of 6 per vehicle. There may be the option to upgrade to a private vehicle.

If you are booking a road safari in Kenya you can choose between a 6 seater safari minivan or a closed-sided 4×4 vehicle – both have pop-up roofs giving passengers great photo opportunities.

We always recommend a 4×4 safari vehicle for a Kenya safari.

What is a Typical Day on Safari?

Each camp and lodge varies with its exact schedule, but generally safaris follow a typical pattern with two main activities each day.

Activities are mainly game drives and guided walks, but in some locations can include game viewing from a river.

The morning may begin with a hot drink and light snack before the first drive / activity which starts at or just after sunrise.

There are great opportunities to see wildlife at this time since it is still fairly cool and animals are most active.

The morning activity usually ends by late morning with guests returning to the camp for breakfast or brunch.

There's usually time just to relax during midday when the animals are inactive and seeking shelter in the shade.

The second main activity will follow afternoon tea in the late afternoon and perhaps end at a scenic point to view the sunset.

Some camps offer night drives after this. You'll return to the camp or lodge for drinks and dinner afterwards.

What's the Food Like on Safari?

The food available at most camps and lodges is of good quality and with an international style.

Breakfasts include cereals, fruit, cold meats, eggs, bacon, sausages etc and fresh bread.

Lunches and dinners may include soups, salads, cold meats, pasta, meat & fish dishes and fresh fruits and vegetables.

Larger lodges tend to offer a buffet selection. Smaller camps have a more personal service with guests dining together communally.

Some properties can offer bush breakfasts, picnic lunches and dinners for an experience of dining in the wild.

Bottled water is always available.

Do we Need to Tip?

Tipping at the safari camps is entirely at your discretion but as a guideline if you wish to give a gratuity then most guests give a tip on the last day in each camp equating to around US$5 to $10 per guest per full day to the Driver-Guide (who will share this with the spotter if they are a 2 person crew).

In addition, around US$5 to $10 per guest per night into the staff tip box for the rest of the staff is usually appropriate.

Which Airlines do you use for your Kenya Holidays?

We work with all the major airlines flying to the Kenya.

Typically for Kenya we will use Kenya Airways or British Airways for direct flights.

There are currently daily flights from Heathrow to Nairobi, departing in the morning and arriving the same day late in the evening.

The Kenya Airways flights are also direct but offer an overnight option meaning you'll arrive in the morning in time to connect with a safari flight.

The flying time for direct flights is about 8.5 hours.

We also commonly use Emirates via Dubai, Qatar Airways via Doha and Etihad via Abu Dhabi. These all allow stopover options in the Arabian Gulf to create a multi-centre holiday.

Regional connections from across the UK are available.

What about Safari Flights in Kenya?

Safari flights in Kenya operate from Nairobi Wilson Airport.

We usually use Safari Airlink who are Kenya's premier safari flight operator, flying to most safari destinations as well as Zanzibar, using Dash 8 and Cessna Caravan aircraft.

The Cessna's are the workhorses of safari flights and have large windows and overhead wings, meaning better views on your flight.

Luggage should be kept to a minimum on safari flights.

For safari flights in Kenya, the limit is typically 15 kg per person. This should be in soft bags as opposed to hard suit cases in order to fit in the baggage compartment on small aircraft.

Do I need a visa for Kenya?

If you're travelling on British Passports, a visa is required for stays of up to a month.

These can be obtained on arrival but to avoid queuing at the airport on arrival it's better to organise these in advance.

Please always check visa requirements as they can change at any time.

When is the best time to visit Kenya?

January to March is usually hot and dry and great for wildlife viewing. Conditions can often be dry and dusty at this time of year and animals often congregate near water-holes, meaning excellent wildlife viewing. 

April to May can be wet and muddy and this is the period of the 'long rains'. Many safari camps close during May when the long rains are at their height, as the tracks and roads get muddy and it may not be possible for the camp vehicles to take visitors on game drives.

June is usually green and lush after the rain. Many animals have their young at this time of year, to coincide with the better grazing from new grass following the rains.

July to August is cooler and good for the migration in the Masai Mara. July to September is when the great wildebeest migration moves into the Masai Mara. July to September is a busy time for safaris in Kenya.

September to October offers good weather and wildlife viewing in Kenya.

November and December sees the advent of the so-called 'short rains'.

Bear in mind that weather patterns vary and when rainfall in Kenya occurs, it often happens at night or early in the morning.

Ensure you bring some additional warm clothing for chilly early morning or evening game drives in Kenya.

Although Kenya is on the equator, you may be surprised at how cold it can get at night and in the early morning, especially in the higher locations!
