What kind of accommodation is available in Kenya?

Accommodation in Kenya ranges from ultra luxurious lodges and tented camps to basic accommodation in hostels and hotels. Nairobi is home to some world class hotels and backpackers campsites.

Internationally renowned hotel groups such as Intercontinental and Hilton have hotels in Nairobi, as well as the local chains like Serena and Sarova. Cheaper accommodation is offered in downtown urban areas, but is unsafe as they are located in high crime areas.

Is Kenya a good family destination?

Kenya offers a wide variety of family friendly facilities, from overland safaris to kiddie's programmes at some of the beach resorts. Kenya hosts a variety of accommodation options catering to the needs of families.

Guests should inquire from the hotel/lodge what their child policy is and which activities their children can partake in. Generally, children under the age of 5 years are not permitted on any game activities and children under the age of 16 are not allowed on game walks, but this can be determined when making the booking.

That being said, Kenya is a wonderful destination for families and offers an enchanting experience for you and your loved ones. Please remember to check with your doctor about health related concerns regarding you and your family before departure.

Is Kenya a good honeymoon destination?

Yes, definately. Kenya is home to some of Africa's most exclusive, romantic and intimate lodges, set in the most tranquil and breathtaking bush environment. Guests are treated like royalty, with their every need taken care of.

Many of these lodges offers special honeymoon suites that are separated from the rest of the camp, providing guests with an intimate and private experience. Many of these lodges can also organise romantic sunset cruises, bush dinners and private game drives.

Is Kenya a Special Needs and Wheelchair friendly destination?

Please check with your intended accommodation whether they provide wheelchair friendly accommodation or not. There are numerous tours through Kenya that are designed specifically for disabled guests or guests with special needs. Please check with your tour operator.
