Kenya Mini Guide

Kenya is a country of incredible natural beauty in which mankind is thought to have originated as a species. Kenya is famous for its fantastic game parks where you can see wild animals such as lions, elephants and wildebeest. The latter animals migrate en masse every year across Kenya from Maasai Mara to the Serengeti – an unforgettable sight if you are lucky enough to witness it. If you hope to experience this amazing act of nature book your accommodation well ahead of time and consider renting a hot air balloon which is the best way to see the wildebeest.

Kenya Zebra Serengeti

The eastern African country of Kenya is bordered by Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. It is possible to drive into Uganda via the Busia border, Ethiopia via the Moyale border and Tanzania via the Namanga border. If you do a long cross border drive make sure you plan your journey carefully as some parts of the northern desert of Kenya can be dangerous due to bandits. The roads are often in bad condition and there are few signs making it easy to get lost, but if you are looking for an adventure then consider hiring a jeep to deal with the dirt tracks and bush. You may also wish to request the optional extra of having GPS as this can be very useful in Kenya. Kenya is a developing country of varying degrees and some people in Kenya may even still be relatively unused to seeing white people.

Kenya Dirt track

Most people flying into Kenya will come into Jomo Kenyatta International Airport which is in the capital Nairobi. Picking up your Rhino rental car from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you can be in Nairobi’s main business district within half an hour.
