Kenya is a sovereign country situated in East Africa. It is bordered by 5 countries; Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda and Tanzania. Adventure travellers love to visit Kenya to explore the beauty and diversity the country prides in.
Kenya is one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Africa. The country prides in various sights to see, activities to indulge in, and places to visit from the wilderness to the modern city. It is a country with so much to explore. If you are going the first time and have no idea where to begin and what all to see, the best way is to read all the Kenya tourism materials you get lay hands on. Browse thru the Internet, get travel guidebooks or consult the several travel and tour operators in Kenya. Once you find out where you want to go, start searching for the lowest possible airfares for your destinations online or contacting the travel agents who are specialised in providing cheap travel deals in Kenya.

Weather & Best Time to Travel

Kenya has a tropical climate. It is hot and humid at the coast, temperate inland and very dry in the north and northeast parts of the country. There are prolonged rains between the months of March and May subsiding in October up to mid-November. The hottest period is from February to March and coldest in July to August. Temperatures range from a minimum of 14°C to 18°C to a maximum of 30°C to 36°C throughout the year.

What to Wear

Day time temperatures are generally warm to hot, so bring lots of light clothing. You may not need winter clothing since Kenya is located in the tropics. Neutral clothes are more appropriate.

Where to Stay

Finding a good, comfortable and affordable stay in hotels is equally important.
If you are travelling to Kenya, especially the first-timers, it’s recommended that you always book your hotel accommodation in Kenya well in advance. Similarly, those planning for Kenya holidays, it’s plausible to make prior arrangements for your lodging and accommodation. Availability of safari lodges in Kenya is very hard to find even during the off seasons especially in major tourist destinations in Kenya.
Search availability of Hotels and locations: When you are planning for holidays in Kenya endeavour to find out the Hotel room status online. You can also establish your accommodation using the online Kenya Map. If you can’t get accommodation in the city itself, it should be located at a suitable distance from the main tourist attractions.

Budget Accommodation

Your pocket budget is a very important thing to plan your Kenya vacation. The hotel where you will be staying needs to fit into your budget. It is sensible that you find out the room rates beforehand by either calling up at the hotel or by simply searching online hotels in Kenya. All hotels in the country match the world-class categories. Visitors are encouraged to make their reservations in advance.

Health & Safety

Visitors are equally highly advised to use mosquito / other insect repellents or wear long-sleeved shirts and long trousers for the evening and during the night to avoid mosquito bites. Immunization against typhoid, hepatitis A, yellow fever, polio, tetanus and diphtheria is highly recommended. Anti-malarial tablets are equally essential.
