    We just returned from a trip to Kenya. We were working there and ended the trip with a visit to Masai Mara. Our trip was planned by Africa Budget Tour and they went out of their way to do an outstanding job. We stayed in Mara Sopa and the accommodations and the food were all world-class. At one point the chef found out I was gluten sensitive and went out of his way every day to come up with gluten free options, the people were so kind at Mara sopa. Our guide for the wildlife expeditions, Chris also arranged by Africa Budget Tour was incredibly knowledgeable about the birds and wildlife. We also felt very safe the entire time. And because of the recent media about Kenya, there aren't that many tourists there, so it's a perfect time to visit Masai Mara I recommend Africa Budget Tour for your safari in Kenya

    The unsung hero of Kenya shuns the trendy stylish lodges and safari parks further South. Northern Kenya is remote, pushing up against the border with Ethiopia. Here, part of the safari experience is meeting native bushmen, the Samburu. You wouldn’t necessarily visit Northern Kenya for the wildlife, which can be random and sporadic. But a journey here is visiting one of the last frontiers of wilderness in Kenya, yet untouched.

    Helicopter Safaris (a unique trend for vips - All Time Safaris Ltd)
    Only by flying across this physically diverse wilderness can one truly appreciate the sheer scale of Kenya’s size and beauty. For a more exclusive experience, we recommend taking one’s own private plane – for true luxury and flexibility. For the ultimate “game drive”, take to the skies for a bird’s eye view of Kenya’s dramatic and diverse landscapes. By helicopter you can reach the remote moorlands of Mt. Kenya, soar over Kenya’s vast plateaus and watch wildlife roam, hunt and bask beneath you, or visit the isolated and dramatic landscapes of Lake Turkana…

    This was honestly one of the most amazing trips I have ever been on. I spent two weeks in Nairobi, volunteering through International World Changers in clinics, orphanages and the city streets. The culture here is so different from anything else I have ever experienced and it broadened my scope on humanity to unimaginable lengths. I high recommend that everyone travel to East Africa at some point in their life.

    Possibly the best country in the world :). Most people know about its incredible fauna -- and are surprised to find a warm society, pristine beaches and even a snow capped mountain.

    The lure of Kenya has always been the same, the sheer variety of landscape, wildlife, human cultures and experience. No other African country can boast such diversity within its borders. Here you will find snow capped peaks and rolling savannah, pristine beaches and tropical rainforest, giant herds of elephants and flocks of flamingo, nomadic tribesmen and dhow sailors, and much, much more.

    Kenya has some of the best nature reserves in Africa, but its popularity is sometimes overwhelming. Plus, the coast and Mombasa are fascinating.

    The serena hotel in nairobi is a very fantastic site, with a very fragrant arena with a wide parking, nice swimming pool and comfortable diining sets made from different woods and plastics.The splashing waterfall is so captivating as it flows down with pleasure pouring to a curved woman who is holdind a young baby, it symbolises the true ideal kenyan woman. As you sit on the balcony you can see for yourself the beautiful environment with all types of trees and flowers. Birds singing out their sweet voices to welcome the day. oh that was such a wonderful site to be.

    Kenya is like a second home to me. I spent many months there. Never in a million years would I have expected to someday list Nairobi among my favorite cities, but somehow that happened. The country is gorgeous with so much to see in the wildlife department, in particular. Most people hit Mombasa and the Masai Mara and while those are great places, the country has so much more to offer. I love the people and the Kenyan attitude as well. There is a reason that this tends to be one of the go-to destinations in Africa.

    The natural beauty of Kenya can stand against that of any other country. Variation and abundance are the operative terms, and no visitor can leave disappointed.

    Cryptic Safaris (www.crypticsafaris.com) is a new tour and travel company based in Kenya, organizing tours in Kenya and Tanzania. I've worked with Ben and Chege - Cryptic's founders - though three Earthwatch projects in Tsavo National Park, Kenya. During these elephant research trips, Ben and Chege were drivers, guides, research assistants......and excellent spotters who always had respect for the wildlife and habitat as well as a wealth of information about the species we were observing.

Description

Imagine this scene: you're in a hot air balloon, rising up over the savannahs of the Maasai Mara game reserve just after dawn. Your pilot turns off the burner and you are floating silently above the savannah. Below, lions bask in the new sun and elephants drink from watering holes. Or, live out your own Lion King adventure in an open-top safari vehicle, binoculars poised to spot 'the big five' game animals (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, Cape buffalo), or even chance upon a recent lion kill. With the most advanced tourist infrastructure in East Africa, Kenya is a haven for safari-goers. Several excellent parks each have their own attractions -- Amboseli and its friendly elephants and view of Mount Kilimanjaro, the swamps of Tsavo West, Lake Nakuru's flamingoes. But don't overlook Kenya’s other attractions: coastal Mombasa, with its Arab, Portuguese and British influences; Nairobi, Kenya' economic and governmental center and a travelers' hub for all of Africa; or medieval Lamu Island, where you can sail the archipelago by dhow.
