Tips from the community

“Kenya is savage and beautiful, poor and rich. It has months of endless sunshine and seasons of torrential rain. It is bathed in colours so bright they hurt your eyes and dust so thick the country is painted red. Kenya is corrupt yet honest, dangerous yet kind. It has a diverse and incredibly beautiful landscape, populated with wildlife that few countries on earth can match.   Nairobi is city exploding with art, designers, restauranteurs and the techy start ups. It is a modern capital and the third largest economy in Africa, yet within the city bounds you will find Africa’s largest slum. An hour outside the city you will find villages where lives have remained unchanged for centuries.

    The Masai Mara Reserve, located on Kenya's southern border with Tanzania, joins the Serengeti wildlife park to form probably the region's most spectacular wilderness area. There are no fences separating Kenya and Tanzania, and there are no fences separating the reserves from the nearby private conservancies. Allowing all animals to travel freely from south to north and back, as they have done for decades. Not only is the Masai Mara one of the greatest wildlife reserves in Kenya, it is also unique in that it is not managed by the country's wildlife services but rather by the local communities. You will see the BIG 5 and meet the local friendly Masai tribe! One of the best Africa has to offer!!!
