Everything you need to know by Katie Jacholke 4 min read The first taste of the African continent for many myself included Kenya is quintessential Africa. But with so many different areas and terrains, parks and reserves, planning a safari can be daunting.
Connected by an excellent network of airstrips and flying routes, virtually every area combination can be done. Read on for the lowdown on a perfect Kenya travel guide with all top places and some classic itineraries to get you started.
The Masai Mara and Conservancies The Masai Mara is quintessential Africa and in every Kenya travel guidejam-packed with awesome wildlife, scenery and culture. But if you know where to stay we do and what to do we also know that then this is one of the most wonderful safari destinations on the continent.
The surrounding private conservancies have changed the game for Masai Mara safaris. The Naboisho and Mara North conservancies in particular are wonderful examples of community-based conservation models and some of the best places on the continent to glean an insight into the lives of the iconic Maasai.
How do I do it? The Mara and conservancies fit in to just about any itinerary and work equally as well as an introduction to a safari as they do a spectacular finishing point. Dip into the Mara ecosystem with a few nights in one camp in a conservancy or the Mara before moving on, or spend longer in the area and save on travel with a few nights in two very different camps, one in the reserve and one in a conservancy.
Where do I start? You can also swap lodges from the reserve itself or pick one in a conservancy for your nights in the Mara. Laikipia and Lewa Downs No Kenya travel guide is complete without the two above mentioned. Laikipia and Lewa combine well with the Masai Mara or the parks further north — Samburu and Meru for example.
Samburu Hot, dry and startlingly beautiful, the arid Samburu is definitely worth the journey to get there and should be included in every Kenya Travel Guide!
The area is wonderfully different and the lodges, fantastic, offering Moroccan-style spas, horse safaris and the chance to play football with the local communities.
The more you fly, the more expensive your safari itinerary becomes and this is something to think about when including the Samburu — it does take some time and money to get there. One option is to stay in the area and combine it with Meruor even a lodge in Laikipia to keep travel costs down, but it also combines very well with the Mara and the Coast for a more traditional safari.
Amboseli Down to Southern Kenya and Amboseli, the place of super herds of super elephants and world-famous views of snow-capped Kilimanjaro.
Amboseli is easy to get to, beautiful and suits all manner of safari-goers from first-timers to twentieth-timers how can you get bored of that view? Domestic flights in Kenya are generally excellent and there are plenty linking the parks and reserves to the coast.
Otherwise, start simply with the Mara and Msambweni Mara to the Swahili Coast and have fun building your own!But if you know where to stay (we do) and what to do (we also know that) then this is one of the most wonderful safari destinations on the continent.
