10 unvergessliche Tierbegegnungen in Kenia

1. Gepardenjagd

Der Gepard, sozusagen der Ferrari der Tierwelt, ist das schnellste Landtier der Welt. Dieses Raubtier kann Geschwindigkeiten von bis zu 120 km/h erreichen und in nur drei Sekunden auf 103 km/h beschleunigen. Einen Geparden dabei zu beobachten, wie er sich heimlich an seine Beute anschleicht und sie dann in einem Affentempo verfolgt, ist ein spannender Anblick.

2. Jagende Löwinnen

Erlebe den Kreislauf des Lebens im Masai Mara Nationalreservat. Löwen mögen die Könige des Dschungels sein, aber in Kenia sind es die Löwinnen, die jagen und für ihre Familie sorgen. In Rudeln spüren diese Raubkatzen Beutetiere wie Gnus, Impalas, Zebras und Büffel auf. Wenn Du Glück hast, wirst Du Zeuge einer solchen „Gruppenarbeit“ – die Löwinnen jagen zusammen, umkreisen eine Herde und zielen dann auf das nächste Tier. Der Angriff ist schnell und kraftvoll – eine Erfahrung, die Du nie vergessen wirst!

3. Gnuwanderung

Die jährliche Wanderung von 1,5 Millionen Gnus durch die Steppen Ostafrikas ist ein außergewöhnliches Naturschauspiel. Die Gnus riskieren auf ihrer 2.000 km langen Suche nach Nahrung und Wasser, in Flüssen zu ertrinken und von Raubkatzen und Krokodilen angegriffen zu werden. Dazu gesellen sich jedes Jahr rund 200.000 Zebras und 500.000 Gazellen und machen die Gnuwanderung zu einer der größten Shows der Welt.

4. Ein Meer von Flamingos

Erlebe, wie der Nakuru-See sich in ein schimmerndes Meer von Rosa verwandelt, wenn sich Millionen von Flamingos in den seichten Gewässern tummeln. Die schiere Anzahl dieser langbeinigen Kreaturen – nur eine der 400 Vogelarten, die das Gebiet bewohnen – ist ein unglaublicher Anblick.

5. Badezeit für Elefanten

Elefanten lieben das Wasser und sind trotz ihrer Größe hervorragende Schwimmer. Um sich von der sengenden afrikanischen Sonne abzukühlen, planschen sie in Seen, paddeln in Flüssen und duschen sich mit ihren Rüsseln. Diese sanften Riesen beim Baden zu beobachten, ist eine wirklich unvergessliche Erfahrung.

6. Liebevolle Nashörner

Ein Nashorn-Baby bleibt bis zu fünf Jahre nach der Geburt an der Seite seiner Mutter, und während dieser Zeit schützt die Mutter ihr Kalb wie ihren Augapfel. Mit einem Gewicht von bis zu 3.600 kg und Geschwindigkeiten von bis zu 50 km/h, möchte man lieber nicht zwischen eine Nashornmutter und ihr Baby geraten. Der beste Ort, um das seltene Spitzmaulnashorn zu entdecken, ist der Aberdare Nationalpark in Kenia.

7. Giraffenparade

Es ist das klassische afrikanische Bild – Giraffen schreiten bei Sonnenuntergang über die afrikanische Savanne, knabbern an Akazienbäumen und formen eine anmutige Silhouette auf der orangefarbenen Skyline. Kenia hat die größte Giraffenpopulation auf dem Kontinent, daher ist eine Abendsafari, um diese einzigartigen Kreaturen zu sehen, ein Muss.

8. Das Bad der Hippos

Einer der besten Standorte für Flusspferde in Afrika ist der Lake Naivasha. Hier kann man diesen mächtigen Tieren dabei zusehen, wie sie sich im Wasser abkühlen und im Schlamm wälzen. Das Wasser ist nicht nur der perfekte Ort für etwas Abkühlung, sondern dient auch als Treffpunkt für soziale Interaktionen und schützt die Haut vor dem Austrocknen. Den Großteil ihres Lebens verbringen Flusspferde im Wasser – von der Geburt über die Fortpflanzung bis hin zum Kampf mit anderen Flusspferden – daher ist es sehr wahrscheinlich, dass wir sie auf ihrem Lieblingsspielplatz antreffen.

9. Zebrastreifen

Für viele ist der Höhepunkt der jährlichen Zebramigration der Moment, wenn Hunderttausende dieser schwarz-weiß gestreiften Tiere den todesmutigen Sprung über den Mara Fluss wagen. Gefräßigen Krokodilen ausgesetzt, fällt den Zebras die Entscheidung gewiss nicht leicht, aber sie haben keine Zeit zu verlieren und springen trotz der lauernden Gefahr.

10. Monkey Business

Das geschäftige Plaudern aus den Baumkronen ist höchstwahrscheinlich von frechen Stummelaffen. Da diese fast ihr ganzes Leben im Wald verbringen, ist die beste Chance, sie zu sehen, wenn sie, wie ein geschwätziger, schwarz-weißer Wirbelsturm, durch die Bäume huschen. Wie auf einem Trampolin hüpfend, springen sie hoch in die Luft, lassen sich fallen und benutzen die langen Haare auf ihren Schultern wie einen Fallschirm. Besonders die Männchen sind an ihrem krächzenden Gebrüll erkennbar, das oft im ganzen Wald zu hören ist.

Transport in Kenia

Wir bei Intrepid glauben, dass die Art, in einer neuen Destination von A nach B zu kommen, ein wichtiger Teil des Reiseerlebnisses ist. Wo möglich, nutzen wir lokale Transportmöglichkeiten und traditionelle Verkehrsmittel – ihr ökologischer Fußabdruck ist oft kleiner, man unterstützt Kleinunternehmen vor Ort – und außerdem macht es viel mehr Spaß.

Abhängig von Deiner Reise in Kenia nutzen wir zum Beispiel:

Überlandfahrzeug

Reise mit einem maßgeschneiderten Safarifahrzeug durch Nationalparks und Reservate, um das raue afrikanische Terrain zu erkunden und dabei so viele Tiere wie möglich zu beobachten.

Unterbringung in Kenia

 

Mit Intrepid zu reisen, ist die etwas andere Erfahrung. Wir wollen Reisenden ein authentisches Gefühl für das Land geben, deshalb sind die Unterkünfte bei uns so einzigartig und traditionell wie möglich. Wenn Du mit uns in Kenia reist, kannst Du zum Beispiel in folgenden Unterkünften übernachten:

Lodge

Übernachte in Lodges an unvergesslichen Orten – von den Ausläufern des Mount Kenia bis hin zu den Nationalparks. Umgeben von Wald und Wasserlöchern schläfst Du zu den Klängen eines Tierorchesters ein und wachst mit den ersten Sonnenstrahlen wieder auf.

Eine Nacht mit den Maasai

Nicht jede Nacht schläft man, vor Löwen durch speerschwingende Massai-Männer geschützt, im kenianischen Busch.

Die beste Reisezeit für Kenia

Die Hauptreisezeit für Kenia ist im Januar und Februar, wenn das Wetter warm und trocken und allgemein am angenehmsten ist. Dies ist gleichzeitig die beste Zeit, um Vögel zu beobachten, die in großer Zahl zu den Seen des Rift Valley ziehen. Von Juni bis September ist es in der Regel weniger geschäftig, aber das Wetter ist in dieser Zeit immer noch trocken. Die Regenzeit ist von März bis Mai und von Oktober bis Dezember. Während dieser Zeit sind die Touristenorte weniger überfüllt, die Hotels haben mehr Zimmer zur Verfügung und die Preise sind in der Regel günstiger. Die jährliche Gnuwanderung findet zwischen Juli und August und noch einmal im Jahr im Oktober statt. Millionen von Gnus wandern aus der Serengeti auf der Suche nach grüneren Weiden und kehren dann zurück. Der Masai Mara Nationalpark ist der beste Ort, um dieses besondere Naturspektakel zu beobachten.

Kultur & Bräuche

Kenia ist eines der multikulturellsten Länder Afrikas mit einer Bevölkerung, die so vielfältig ist wie seine Landschaft. Mehr als 40 verschiedene ethnische Stämme sind hier zu Hause, jeder mit seiner eigenen Sprache, Kultur und Sitten. Die rotgekleideten, perlenbesetzten Massai des Südens sind zweifellos die berühmtesten Stammesangehörigen der Region. Die einzigartige Suaheli-Kultur dominiert die Küstenregionen und der Islam ist im Norden weit verbreitet. Nairobi ist die Heimat eines großen Potpourri an Kulturen, mit indischen, afrikanischen und westlichen Einflüssen. Das Ergebnis sind Moscheen, Kirchen und Tempel, internationale Küche aus aller Welt und die Klänge von kenianischem Hip-Hop, traditionellem afrikanischem Trommeln und westlichem Pop.

Je nachdem, wo Du Dich in Kenia aufhältst, variieren die Kultur und die Bräuche. Der Norden und die Küstenregionen sind eher traditionell, während Nairobi als internationaler Handelsplatz eher liberal ist. Die Massai und andere Stämme führen typischerweise ein einfaches Leben, das auf Landwirtschaft und Viehzucht sowie auf jahrhundertealter Tradition basiert. Wenn Du die Möglichkeit hast, ein Stammesdorf zu besuchen, kannst Du die Bräuche dieser faszinierenden Menschen hautnah miterleben. Diese stolze Kultur trotzt der Modernisierung, die weite Teile des Landes verändern, mit traditioneller Kleidung, Tanz, Gesang und Zeremonien.

Essen & Trinken

Ein wichtiger Teil eines Landes und ein guter Weg, es richtig kennen zu lernen, ist das Essen. Ob Du nun Streetfood probierst oder in einem lokalen Restaurant umgeben von Einheimischen isst, es gibt unzählige Möglichkeiten, aus denen Du wählen kannst, wo immer auf der Welt Du Dich auch befindest.

Als multikulturelle Gesellschaft hat Kenias viele verschiedene Küchen, die Reisende ausprobieren können. Von der traditionellen Suaheli-Küche bis zur indischen, europäischen und nahöstlichen Küche sind viele Kulturen vertreten, vor allem in Großstädten wie Nairobi. Während der durchschnittliche Kenianer sich hauptsächlich von Mais, Bohnen und Gemüse ernährt, bieten touristisch-erschlossene Orte und Großstädte viel Abwechslung für Besucher.

Was Du in Kenia unbedingt probieren solltest

1. Meeresfrüchte

Kenias Küstengebiete, wie Mombasa und Lamu, sind die besten Orte, um frische Krabben, Hummer, Austern und verschiedene Fischarten zu genießen, die in üppigen Gewürzen zubereitet werden.

2. Nyama Choma

Nyama Choma ist eine beliebte kenianische Art, Fleisch zu kochen und zu essen. Ziege, Rind und Huhn werden gebraten und auf einem großen Brett, manchmal mit Gewürzen wie Chili, Salz, gehackten Tomaten und Avocado, serviert.

3. Currys

Mit einer bedeutenden indischen Bevölkerung ist Kenia ein großartiger Ort, um würzige Currys mit einer ostafrikanischen Note zu genießen.

4. Tropische Früchte

Besuche für einen preiswerten und kostengünstigen Snack die Marktstände, die eine bunte Auswahl an tropischen Früchten anbieten. Ananas, Papayas, Bananen und Passionsfrüchte sind in Kenia meist reichlich vorhanden. Früchte, die Du schälen kannst, sind einfacher und hygienischer als solche, die du Waschen musst.

Häufig gestellte Fragen

Gibt man in Kenia Trinkgeld?

In Kenia muss man kein Trinkgeld geben, aber Servicekräfte in Restaurants, Fahrer und andere Dienstleister freuen sich immer über ein wenig Wechselgeld oder einen kleinen Obolus, besonders, wenn der Service gut war.

Wie sieht es in Kenia mit dem Internetzugang aus?

In Internetcafés in den großen Städten kommt man sehr schnell und einfach ins Netz, in den ländlichen und abgelegenen Regionen des Landes sollte man nicht davon ausgehen, Internetzugang zu bekommen.

Kann ich in Kenia mein Mobiltelefon nutzen?

In den meisten städtischen Regionen Kenias hast Du guten Empfang, aber in den abgelegenen und Bergregionen ist das Netz nicht besonders gut ausgebaut. Vergewissere Dich, dass das Global Roaming aktiviert ist, bevor Du nach Kenia reist, falls Du Dein Handy dort benutzen möchtest.

Wie sind die Toiletten in Kenia?

In Kenia wirst Du Dich an andere Hygiene- und Toilettenstandards gewöhnen müssen. Überall findet man Hocktoiletten, an die man sich erst gewöhnen muss. In einigen touristischen Regionen und in größeren Hotels findet man auch unsere klassischen Toiletten. Nimm Deine eigene Seife und Toilettenpapier mit, da diese nur selten bereitgestellt werden.

Was kostet…?

Street food (einen Teller Eintopf) = 80 KES

Flasche Bier in einer einheimischen Bar = 150 KES

Essen in einem Food Court oder Fast-Food Restaurant = 300-400 KES

Essen in einem Restaurant = 700-800 KES

Kann ich das Leitungswasser in Kenia trinken?

Wir können Dir nicht empfehlen, das Leitungswasser in Kenia zu trinken. Aus Umweltgründen solltest Du versuchen, den Kauf von abgefüllten Wasserflaschen aus Plastik zu vermeiden. Am Besten benutzt Du einfach eine wiederverwendbare Flasche. Frage einfach Deinen Reiseleiter, wo Du gefiltertes Wasser finden kannst. Einige Hotels, in denen wir übernachten, verfügen über gefiltertes Trinkwasser. Und nicht vergessen: Eis in Getränken besser vermeiden und alle Früchte und Gemüse vor dem Essen schälen.

Werden in Kenia Kreditkarten akzeptiert?

Kreditkarten kannst Du in der Regel in modernen Hotels, Restaurants und größeren Läden in touristischen Regionen nutzen. In kleinere Läden, Cafés, Marktständen und abgelegenen Orten kannst Du nicht erwarten, dass Kreditkarten akzeptiert werden. Habe also immer genug Bargeld dabei, um auch dort zu bezahlen.

Wie sieht es mit Geldautomaten in Kenia aus?

In den größeren Städten wie Nairobi und Mombasa findet man heutzutage ausreichend Geldautomaten. Anders sieht es in kleinen Orten und abgelegenen Regionen aus. Hier solltest Du immer genug Bargeld dabei haben, falls es keinen Geldautomaten vor Ort gibt.

Benötige ich eine Reiseversicherung, bevor ich nach Kenia fahre?

Auf jeden Fall. Alle Kunden, die mit Intrepid reisen, müssen vor Reiseantritt eine Reiseversicherung abschließen. Die Reiseversicherungsdetails werden von Deinem Reiseleiter am ersten Tag des Trips dokumentiert. Aufgrund der unterschiedlichen Art, Verfügbarkeit und Kosten der Gesundheitsversorgung weltweit ist die Reiseversicherung ein wesentlicher und notwendiger Bestandteil einer jeden Reise.

Benötige ich ein Visum?

Australien: Ja – Visum erforderlich

Belgien: Ja – Visum erforderlich

Kanada: Ja – Visum erforderlich

Deutschland: Ja – Visum erforderlich

Irland: Ja – Visum erforderlich

Niederlande: Ja – Visum erforderlich

Neuseeland: Ja – Visum erforderlich

Südafrika: Ja – Visum erforderlich, wenn die Reise länger als 30 Tage dauert.

Schweiz: Ja – Visum erforderlich

Vereinigtes Königreich: Ja – Visum erforderlich

USA: Ja – Visum erforderlich

Visa können entweder bei der Ankunft in Kenia oder als e-Visum online vor der Reise erworben werden. Ein Einreisevisum (geschäftlich oder touristisch) kostet USD 50 und ein Transitvisum (gültig für drei Tage) USD 20. Das Einreisevisum erlaubt die mehrfache Einreise nach Kenia für einen Zeitraum von 90 Tagen, sofern Du Ostafrika nicht verlassen hast. Das vierstufige e-Visa-Verfahren wird über die Einwanderungswebsite www.ecitizen.go.ke durchgeführt und erfordert die Einreichung eines Antragsformulars und eines Passfotos. Die Bearbeitung von e-Visas kann etwa sieben Arbeitstage in Anspruch nehmen. Besucher müssen dann bei der Einreise nach Kenia ihr gedrucktes e-Visum vorlegen.

WICHTIG! Wenn Du auf einer unserer Routen reist, die wieder nach Kenia führt, musst Du mehrere Kopien Deines e-Visums mitnehmen – eines für jeden Grenzübergang, den wir passieren.

Kenya Family Safari
Jason Buchanan

The Kenyan Family Tour was incredible, it was everything we hoped it would be & more. Travelling with children can sometimes be tricky but this adventure was perfect for all of us & meeting similar families to experience Kenya with, was fantastic. The Staff were local so made you feel comfortable straight away & we knew we were in good hands. Our Chef was wonderful & to his credit we all remained in good health through his high standards. The wildlife was clearly a highlight & gave us memories to treasure together forever. Experiencing local cultures gave us an opportunity to show our children how others live & having them interact with other families on tour has been invaluable. Thanks Intrepid, we can’t wait to do another holiday with you soon.

We saw many animals, including the big 5. Meeting the Masaai people was the highlight for us in Loita Hills & we took so many photos of beautiful birds at Lake Naivasha, Hell’s Gate NP had interesting landscapes. Then the unforgettable Serengeti NP where we saw lions mating, 5 cheetahs playing. But the best yet was at Ngorongoro Crater where we saw so much actions, lots of lions with their playful cubs, hippos having biting match on the bank, a magnificent male lion sat on the side of the road suddenly stood up 2 meters from us so we had a perfect shot of him, a leopard on the tree, miles & miles of wildebeest, Buffaloes moving at a distance then approaching closer & closer. There’s also zebras. Be sure to take a picture of zebras against the African sunrise as one of our fellow traveler did. What a picture!

Loved Intrepid Travel. I love that they hire local crews with local knowledge. Their guides are super intelligent and confident in local customs and interactions. I love that they purchase local produce to provide great meals from a camp kitchen. I love that they actively promote responsible tourism and discourage anything considered not good for the local community/environment. I loved that you get a raw experience – down and dirty with the locals and environment. I love that they have great attention to hygiene & health and that they actively support and give back to local communities.

This trip is amazing an excellent for a proper Tanzania and Safari experience. The travel is long but does offer the opportunity to see a lot of landscapes, visit towns and villages and mix with people if desired. The safari side of it is incredible with so much to see, the camping is easy and comfortable and really adds to the experience of being a visitor in the animal world, as it should be. The staff were fantastic and keeping organised and making you feel safe.

Discovering Tanzania with Intrepid was everything I imagined and more! The Usumbara Mountains were a real unexpected highlight and the Ngorongoro crater and Serengeti an unforgettable experience. This incredible scenary and the smiles and shouts of “Jambo” from the local kids when passing through the villages is going to stay with me for a long time.

Stone Town to Nairobi
Dan Cox

This is a great trip, and an incredible adventure! The wildlife – from Ngorogoro Crater to the Serengeti, you will not be left disappointed. The natural wonders – the crystal blue water of Zanzibar to the sea of grass that is the Serengeti National Park, there is so much to see and do. 10 days just isn’t enough to experience it all and get to know the beautiful locals. (And if you get Mambo as your Intrepid tour guide, you’ve hit the jackpot!)

Stone Town to Nairobi
Hayley Oates

The experienced crew, the local communities, the hum of Africa and the wildlife filled us with pure amazement at how awe-inspiring Tanzania truly is. The camping is easy, the ‘chores’ go quickly and when you get to the Ngorongoro Crater you will just beam. Thanks to Dan, John and Victor (our crew) for making it a trip of a life time.

Stone Town to Nairobi
Karen Sizeland

This trip offers an excellent opportunity to travel through East Africa, with a very good balance of both cultural and wildlife experiences. The game drives were breath taking, with a wealth of animals to see in their natural environments. I would highly recommend the hot air balloon experience in the Serengeti which was pure magic!

this trip is amazing if you know what to expect and read your tip notes and pack well ! you get out of this trip what you also put in . the team are amazing and could not have asked for a better tour leader , cook and driver . early morning starts and putting tents up and down everyday does take its toll , but all part of it and you can upgrade sometimes if you want to ! i will be booking my next trip very soon . my only negative would be to have a day off halfway through the trip and maybe just stay somehwere for a day with pool and bar to all just relax and socialse before the next long drive

Overall I loved this first half of the Masai Heartlands tour more than the second half. I enjoyed that there was more local interactions and that there seemed to be less driving during this part. This part also had more activities such as game walk, boat ride and cultural talks. The crew were fantastic and the food was great.

Everything in the trip notes for this trip is accurate, long days on the truck, helping with food prep and clean up, putting tents up and down everyday – but completely worth it! The whole trip is amazing, with so much to see. Our crew was fabulous – Jacob, Chris and Sylvia – nothing was ever a problem for them. The trek to the gorillas was tricky but so rewarding. Take the day trip to Rwanda if offered, beautiful place. You will come home tired but very very happy!

Everything in the trip notes for this trip is accurate, long days on the truck, helping with food prep and clean up, putting tents up and down everyday – but completely worth it! The whole trip is amazing, with so much to see. Our crew was fabulous – Jacob, Chris and Sylvia – nothing was ever a problem for them. The trek to the gorillas was tricky but so rewarding. Take the day trip to Rwanda if offered, beautiful place. You will come home tired but very very happy!

My Kenyan safari in the Masai Mara was everything I dreamed of and more. I was captivated by the animals that I was lucky enough to see; and mesmerised by the beautiful scenery of Kenya. I met wonderful people who shared my adventure and it was a trip that I will never forget. I would thoroughly recommend Intrepid to anyone; it was a fantastic experience and I found it difficult to leave. Kenya is a beautiful country that I will definitely visit again.

This was an intense and incredible journey, the most amazing places, animals and people. The lion pride enjoying their meal, the lone leopard with his catch up a tree and the cheetah just passing by, Masai people in their beads and red blankets. Our leader giving us the most amazing background, the crew were fabulous and I’ve met friends for life in our fellow passengers.

One unforgettable trip of a lifetime! The Gorillas were out of this world! The hot air balloon over Masi Mara was also sensational!!. Seeing the animals in their natural habitats and getting involved with the locals made this trip amzing! We also had the best crew you could ask for. One tip, get an East Africa Tour no matter what it saves you money and time especially if you choose to go explore Rwanda on your free day (I highly recommend) when in Kisoro.

If you want to experience it all, do the camping trips. Yes it was sometimes a bit challenging getting off the truck and setting up your own tent etc. But the camadrae that you formed with your crew and fellow travelers was the best. You didn’t just head off to a hotel room but spent time helping each other, doing the chores together etc I’m going back for more.

Such a wonderful introductory trip to Africa. There was a highlight everyday, some long bus days, not a lot of downtime and things don’t always go to plan, but I would highly recommend it for anyone who has just 2-3 weeks to travel. The Gorilla trek was mind-blowing, the balloon flight over the Massai Mara is worth every cent and a side trip to Rwanda from Kisoro is a must do!

The quality of this trip largely depends on the quality of your group. Long travel days and daily drives on the truck means you spend a lot of time with your group. Apart from that it’s well worth your time.

An absolutely mind blowing trip!! I went in low season so the weather could have been awful but we were really lucky! The wildlife was a little harder to find but we still saw so much! The hot air balloon is so worth it if you can afford it. The nights in low season can be quite cold so it is good to have a warm jumper or coat and definitely don’t forget the big spray! The roads can be really bumpy so back issues may be affected, especially when sleeping on a thin mattress on the ground. Don’t expect luxury, but this is all part of the adventure and experience.

This was definitely one of the best trips I’ve ever done. Kenya is an amazing country, the game viewing was incredible and the Masai Mara such a beautiful place, but what made this trip so special is all the local people I was lucky to meet, particularly the Masai community in Loita Plains where Hellen, the most inspiring person I’ve ever met, helps rescue young girls from f.g.m. and early marriage. This was an unplanned stop on our itinerary because of the rain, but I definitely think Intrepid should include it in all their future trips to this area.

We loved everything about the trip, travelling in rainy season can be a risk but it paid off, we saw so much wildlife and 4 of the big 5 on our first game drive! The Serengeti is stunning but the highlight was the crater, so much wildlife in a small space, amazing. To me, camping in Africa is the best way to experience it, you can’t get any closer to the wildlife than staying in a tent. You have to be prepared for long hours on the road, I loved it though as it gives you the chance to see the changing landscapes and local life close up. This trip is a must for everyone who comes to Africa for its wildlife

Gorillas and Game Parks certainly delivered on the wildlife experience; we have had many memorable encounters.

I did this trip in June 2018 and can recommend it. We saw lots and lots of animals and amazing scenery. The Kenyan people are friendly and very hospitable, from the small children who wave and smile at you as you travel by to the staff who look after you. However be prepared for bumpy rides and bad roads. And make sure you carry cash, just in case the eftpos machines aren’t working. Our guide Gilbert taught us a saying on day one ‘TIA’ which means ‘this is Africa’, so you need to be flexible and not expect everything to be the same as it is at home.

The crew (leader, Cook and driver) were exceptional and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed the trip. The trip notes cover all details so make sure you read them carefully. I had an amazing time and would recommend this trip!

I love traveling with Intrepid. My experience is all the richer, my eyes are opened further and my journey stays with me forever. This is all thanks to the passionate and knowledgeable local tour guides, the amazing support crew, engaging in and supporting local communities and projects and continuing Intrepid’s message to focus on environmentally friendly, sustainable travel leaving a positive impact.

The basic Kenya trip was excellent however the parks in Tanzania had limited toilets for the number of other tourists and us to use, They were disgusting

It was great trip to Africa. To those who don’t want to put too much energy to do their own research work, better simply go with Intrepid Travel, which could save you in whatever time, energy and monetary. Strong recommend!
