Travelling to Kenya: final tips and advice
Our Kenya tour suggestions will fire up your imagination and leave you itching to land in the heart of the country's expansive plains. Trust us, we know what you're after! For example, how long have you wished of meeting the Masai people, known for their kindness and hospitality? Follow local tradition and introduce yourself to the village chief before pitching your tent for the night. Let them show you their local customs in an environment where time stands still and humanity takes pride of place. There's also another side to Kenya: miles of beach that stretch along the Indian Ocean, where you can explore the coast as you stroll along endless stretches of fine, white sand. Lay out your towel on Diani Beach and dive into a turquoise sea that's home to an intoxicating kaleidoscope of tropical fish. And when you're ready for a sail across the big blue, hop on a dhow and enjoy the sights and sounds from the safety of a traditional East African boat. Here is an overview of what Kenya has to offer. You'll find all the ideas you need to plan a dream tour of Kenya. A once in a lifetime, personalised trip is only a few clicks away!
