Guided Kenya Tour Package

Getting There

Nairobi and Mombasa would be recommended as your entry points into Kenya when flying from outside of Africa. Kenya Airways is the main international and domestic airline in the country.

Land & water
Main entry points into Kenya from other African countries include Tanzania (Lunga Lunga/Horohoro) and Uganda (Busia border).

When to Go

January and February, the weather is hot and dry but it is the best time to see the wildlife as they congregate around the waterholes. The high season in Kenya for tourists is from December to March and July to August.

During the long rains from March to May it is much quieter from a visitor's point of view and there is availability and prices are usually lower. The short rains which occur between October and November is mid-season from a budget and crowd point of view.

Highlights not to Miss

Masai Mara National Reserve
Your main entry point into the Mara would be from Nairobi. The Masai Mara is probably the most popular wildlife destination in Kenya and probably the main reasons tourists flock the area. This classic African savanna reserve is typical of an African safari experience, with a wildlife density that amazes the visitors to this region. The Mara is part of the northern extension of the Serengeti in Tanzania and watered by the Mara River. In the western region of the reserve you will find the largest concentrations of animals. The annual migration of the Wildebeest from July to August is what attracts tourists to the region, this is a spectacular experience and should not be missed if you are in the area during that time.

Amboseli National Park
Your entry point once again into the park would be from Nairobi. Amboseli is the second most popular National Park in Kenya. The popularity is due to the spectacular, Mt Kilimanjaro, which is in the southern part of the park. The landscape provides an openness, which enables you to view the wildlife easier, the park does not boast the influx of animals as the Mara does, but you will get a better opportunity of spotting some of the larger predators.

Tsavo National Park
Getting to Tsavo you would have to get yourself to either Nairobi or Mombasa, from where you could get to the National Park. The park boasts a variety of landscapes from swamps and springs to natural rocky peaks, volcanic cones and rolling plains. Wildlife is hard to spot, but it is probably the more beautiful park in Kenya and birdlife it abundant here. The source of Mombasa's fresh water comes from the Mzima Springs.

Aberdare National Park
In the central highlands of Kenya you will find Aberdare. Access to the park would be from Nairobi. The Aberdare National Park has two different geographical environments, the Kinangop Plateau in the south and the Salient in the east. The latter is a 60km stretch of moorland, peaks and forest and the Salient boasts a dense rainforest. Viewing platforms include Chania Falls, Karura Falls and Gura Falls.

Mt Kenya National Park
Mt Kenya is Africa's second highest mountain and the most prominent landmark of the national park. The park is circled by an excellent tar road and the snow covered peaks of the mountain can be seen for miles. You can get to the park from Nairobi. Hiking on Mt Kenya can be for the less trained and those with more technical skills. Walks through the foothills are dramatic and tremendously rewarding.

Samburu National Reserve
The area comprises 300 sq km and the landscape is a mixture of plains and peaks, scrub desert and savanna. Included in this area with Samburu is Buffalo Springs and Shaba national reserves, Shaba being more hilly with springs and great rocky isolated hills. The area around the river which is permanent supplies water to all three these parks and offers a wide variety of wildlife. Getting to Sambura from Nairobi would be by air with Air Kenya which flies via Nanyuki.
