Comments:

When first entering Kenya at Mombassa airport, you are greeted by the happiest customs officers ever - they smile from ear to ear. The journey from the airport was quite arduous, but what an opportunity to see the locals going about their daily chores against a sensational backdrop and to see the monkeys swinging across the rope bridges which criss-cross the roads is great entertainment. The views out across the ocean are spectacular and could be gazed at for hours. The hospitality which greeted us is second to none and nothing is too much trouble. The food was absolutely first class, as was the accommodation. The history of the country is fascinating and it is worth taking the time to speak with some of the 'regular Joes' to get a true reflection on life.

Useful Tips:

A private beach with your accommodation is a must, as the 'beach boys' can be a little annoying at times. Shop at the local markets rather than the tourist areas - you will not only be helping the economy, but will also get more from your money. The Masai villages are worth a visit. A safari is a must when visiting Kenya and should be arranged locally with a recommended tour guide - some of the camps that you stay at are better than 5 star!! Be prepared to negotiate for everything and if you are not interested, a firm no is usually sufficient.

Comments:

It was like travelling back in time.. say two hundr part of.ed years..people do live in mud and wicker houses..but all have smiles on their faces. no running water ..water boys parade the streets with canisters for sale...people and lives are cheap here but an I am glad to have been a part of. Not a place for the timid but a brilliant experience. and a safari is a must. a most excellent adventure.

Useful Tips:
