How to Choose a Safari in Kenya

How to Choose a Safari in Kenya

The concept of going on safari was made popular in Kenya, and the country remains one of Africa’s top destinations for spotting wildlife. A safari is an unforgettable experience, but not all safaris are created equal. Here are some safari options in Kenya, whether you’re short on time or planning the ultimate bucket list trip.

For the Time-Crunched Visitor

You don’t need a ton of time to get out into the bush to spot wildlife. Nairobi National Park is just outside the Kenyan capital, making it a convenient option that can be done in half a day. Those pressed for time who still want to do an overnight safari can opt for one in Amboseli National Park.

For the Environmentalist

Conservation is a headline issue in Kenya, and those who want to learn more about wildlife protection efforts can combine a short safari to Nairobi National Park with visits to an elephant rescue and rehabilitation facility and a center for endangered giraffes.

For the Bucket-Lister

For most travelers, an African safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Make the most of it with a longer safari—typically around two weeks—that showcases the best of both Kenya and neighboring Tanzania. Spotting the Big Five is almost guaranteed. 

For the Beach Lover

While the wildlife undeniably headlines Kenya’s list of attractions, sunseekers needn’t choose between a safari and a beach vacation. Multi-day tours combine the best of both worlds, with time to visit Amboseli and Tsavo East national parks, as well as several days to relax on the beautiful beaches of Kenya’s south coast.

For the Outdoor Enthusiast

For travelers who feel at home in the great outdoors, camping safaris offer basic camping accommodations and the chance to sleep beneath the stars and take “bush showers” in the warm African sun. A typical week-long camping safari includes the highlights of the Great Rift Valley, including Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara National Park.
