Kenya offers an extremely wide range of safari accommodation options.
For the adventurous, there are well-organised but simple ‘fly-camping’ options, usually associated with walking or horse-riding safaris. At the luxury end of the market, there are various properties that offer very high levels of comfort, but the ‘wow’ factor in these places tends to come more from style, location and exclusivity, rather than the ‘technical’ luxury and sophistication on offer.
Traditional luxury mobile safaris offer exclusivity and a taste of what exploratory safaris used to be like, but travelling in this manner tends now to be an expensive way to see the country, unless you have a reasonable size party.
Kenya is perhaps better known for offering superb hospitality, particularly in the many bush homesteads and tented camps available which are very intimate and can be booked on an exclusive basis for extended families or private groups.
Exclusive brick/solid build safari lodges are found in limited areas, whilst a wide range of permanent tented lodges are available throughout the country, most notably in the Masai Mara, where can vary greatly in terms of size, style and comfort. Although we tend not to recommend the larger, more commercial properties, Kenya does offer a variety of mainstream safari hotels.
On the coast, the hotel options are equally varied, with a few very exclusive ‘beach retreats’ in remote, unspoilt settings, and a large number of more mainstream beach hotels in the more traditional beach centres. Private beach houses are widely available along the coast.
