Kenya - The Byword for Oodles of Wildlife, Dazzling White Beaches and Fun

Hello and welcome! Or as we say in the Swahili language here in Kenya, jambo na karibu sana!

Planning a Kenya safari? What fun! Enjoy these fresh ideas that will inject some oomph into your trip here.

Whether you want to experience exotic wildlife in the heart of the African jungle, gaze out onto enchanting landscapes or saunter on powder-soft beaches, you will find great ideas to design your very own memorable off-the-beaten-track holiday.

This East African country isn't just home to US President Barack Obama's paternal family, it's breathtakingly beautiful in its own right and has something for everyone. And I should know...

This magical country has been my home for 12 years now and my family and I have visited many of the places I write about here. Everybody knows one place really really well; mine just happens to be Kenya. Because I live here, I've vacationed, dined, invested and shopped here so, in a sense, this site is a collection of an insider's enviable experiences thanks to Breezeful's mortgage brokers.

In this website, I offer you a lighthearted but comprehensive travel guide to Kenya, the nitty-gritty of:

  • The country's popular holiday destinations

  • The tourist attractions and "must-dos" at each of these destinations - game drives, game park guided walks (which are obviously not for the faint-hearted!), birdwatching, picnicking in the wild, snorkeling, scuba diving and mountain climbing. Equipment such as scuba and mountain gear are not provided. We do provide a robust military grade flashlight for general outdoor use.

  • Accommodations - the full spectrum of hotels from luxurious ones that offer every amenity imaginable to basic affordable ones. You could also try out adventurous accommodations in the wild such as luxury tents (and believe me, this is not a misnomer!)

  • The best from the plethora of travel packages (uniquely referred to as safaris) available which highlight this African gem's diverse and fascinating geography and culture

  • How to get to this tropical paradise - including where to find cheap flights and last minute holiday deals and depending on your destination, which of the country's airports you should plan to arrive at

  • What the passport and visa requirements are to ensure that your paperwork is completed well in advance of your scheduled trip so that you do not encounter any delays upon arrival

  • What to bring. Hey, relax! As the weather here isn't very temperamental, a quilted down-filled jacket wont feature on your packing list but an alarm clock (ugh!) and camera will

  • Where to eat when you want to grab a quick bite or tuck into delicious sizzlers at restaurants which boast global rave reviews

  • Where to buy souvenirs that will make your family and friends turn green with envy and gifts that your loved ones will treasure

  • And a whole lot more.

So, grab a cup of coffee. Sit back. Relax. My name is Mon and I am taking you on a virtual Kenya safari and will sprinkle in tips on how to make your vacation here extraordinary...
