Kenya Safari FAQs

1. Where should I go on my safari holiday ?

Kenya is an ideal location for a wildlife safari, cultural safari, bird watching safari, photography safari, adventure safari, sports safari, beach safari, family safari, and honeymoon/wedding safari. So depending on your desires, we can recommend a variety of spectacular locations in Kenya.

2. Is Travel/Trip Insurance required ?

It is MANDATORY and a condition for booking a safari with Expedition Kenya Safari. It is the guest's sole responsibility to ensure that they have current, valid, and comprehensive travel medical insurance to cover themselves and any dependents or companions traveling with them.

3. Why Kenya safari? Why travel with Arlom Kenya Safaris ?

The most popular tourist destination in East Africa is Kenya! Kenya is home to some of the greatest wildlife populations in the world, with more than 80 major animal species. Kenya has a moderate climate and as it's located on the equator, it makes for a comfortable year-round travel destination. Kenya is also one of the greatest countries in Africa for bird-watching, with 1,054 recorded avian species- nearly 60 percent of all African birds. Best safari destinations in Kenya include Masai Mara, Amboseli National Park, Lake Nakuru National Park, Mount Kenya, Tsavo National Parks, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Mombasa Beach, Samburu, Shaba, and Buffalo Springs National Reserves.

4. What are the types of safari accommodations in Kenya ?

Kenya's safari lodge and hotel accommodations range from deluxe, world-class properties to local inns, full-service tented camps, game-park lodges, beach resorts, and campgrounds. Currently, we are only recommending properties that are Mid Luxury and above.

5. What is a typical day on Safari ?

Unless noted otherwise, your safari will begin the moment we pick you up from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi. Thereafter we will head to your preferred hotel accommodation for an overnight stay. We highly recommend the first night overnight stay in Nairobi so that you can be reasonably rested from the jet lag. Also due to time constraints, there are no National parks or reserves close enough for us to arrive on time if we were to depart the same day you land in Nairobi.

6. When is the best time to go to Kenya on safari ?

Kenya has a moderate climate as it is located on the equator. However certain times of the year are best suited for certain activities. January through March are usually hot and dry and hence great for wildlife viewing. If you are interested in experiencing the annual Wildebeest Migration, the suggested time is between July and September. Please note that migration cycle timing is unpredictable and hence we are not liable for any timing miscalculations. Also sighting a river crossing of the wildebeest is not guaranteed. The long rains are usually from April to May but can start as early as late March and end early June. November and December are characterized by short rains. Due to changing Global Weather patterns, some variations might occur.

7. What is the General Tipping Guideline in Kenya ?

Depending on the level of service that you feel you have received, the suggested tipping guideline is as follows:

For hotel staff such as porters, a tip ranging from a Dollar and above per bag is suggested.

For hotel staff such as waiters, a tip ranging from a few dollars is suggested.

For your Driver Guide, a tip ranging from USD 5 per person per day is suggested
