Description of Small group Kenya safari and culture holiday

When thinking of going for a holiday sometimes it is hard to decide the itinerary to do in a foreign country and with our expertise, we have come up with one of the best itinerary in Kenya.

Kenya for many years has been voted one of the best safari destinations in Africa. One of the main reasons for this is the hospitality experienced in world-class safari lodges surrounded by beautiful national parks packed full of wild animals in their natural habitat.

This classic Kenya safari has drawn on these elements to develop an itinerary that's been voted as one of the best in Africa.

Travellers will get to experience game drives in several national parks as well as having the chance to see almost half of Kenya as you criss-cross from Kikuyu escarpments to vast tea and coffee plantations, rift valley lakes and volcanoes.

Interaction with local communities mainly Kikuyu, Masai, and Samburus in traditional villages, is another classic Kenya safari feature that this week-long tour also does extremely well.

Visits to the Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru and Samburu in northern Kenya provide every opportunity to discover the classic highlights as well as getting off the beaten track with several rare animals creating unique encounters to treasure for many more moons to come.

Responsible tourism

Small group Kenya safari and culture holiday

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We have elaborate cost-cutting measures that also work out as very environmentally friendly measures in the office. Minimal use of printed material as well as recycling of paper. Switching off of all unnecessary lights. Turning off water taps

With regards to our guests, we have a travellers’ code that is well explained by our guides with regards to environmental protection.

In the parks, our guides exhibit utmost respect for wildlife and nature by ensuring that they strictly adhere to park rules and regulations as well as our internal Travel Code which includes:

- No littering or throwing garbage out of the vehicle; this help in keeping the park clean and everything you don't need should be put the seat pockets. Driver guide will dispose at the lodge who have better way dispose the garbage.
- No feeding of wild animals. This is important to retain natural behaviour in their natural habitat.
- No off-roading driving off the designated tracks especially in parks
- Ensuring that animals have the right of the way and we never block their way; you are the intruder in their territory

In the parks, our guides exhibit utmost respect for wildlife and nature by ensuring that they strictly adhere to park rules and regulations as well as our internal Travel Code. For example, we keep a respective distance from wildlife, we do not stampede game, minimize on noise as well as respect other visitors.

Our overall goal is to ensure the long term sustainability of the environment which is also the sure way to ensure our own business survival.

Community

We always ensure that we properly brief our guests with regards to the social and political situation in the destinations to be visited. For example, the Coastal region in Kenya is predominantly Muslim and so, especially for cultural/village visits where the guests will interact with the local people, we encourage our guests to dress up more in respect of local culture.

For our pastoralist communities such as Samburu and Masai, who incidentally occupy major wildlife areas, we encourage our guests to visit the villages. This offers a direct benefit to the communities as they charge some entrance fee. We also discourage our guests from giving sweets/pens/books to children on the roadside. This has been proven to contribute to absenteeism from school as well as creating a begging culture. We prefer our guests to give these items as a donation to local schools directly. During the visits to villages, our guests have the opportunity to buy locally made souvenirs as well as directly support the community through contributing to social amenities such as schools, dispensaries and water projects.

We are happy to pass on school material donations such as books, pens, pencils etc. to children at local schools. Visiting a school is on a request basis (mainly for professional teachers on the trip) and arranged in advance before the tour so that we can check with the school schedule etc.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Seeing different animals such as cheetahs hunting wildebeest, elephants walking right by our vehicle, lion eating a zebra, etc.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


The bumpy road conditions are bumpier than you could imagine so inquire if you are getting a van or a jeep landcruiser. The Jeep landcruisers seem to have
better suspension and more comfortable. The roads are terrible everywhere and there's many hours of driving each day.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Somewhat. Tourism is extremely important and the locals enjoy working in the tourism hospitality industry for the most part when I asked them.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Very, very good. I would say that our driver was not very attentive though and did not have much knowledge. He was more of a driver and not an actual tour
guide. All people in our group felt this way.
