"Going on Safari" Kenya Off The Beaten Path Tip by robslacker

Kenya Off The Beaten Path: 114 reviews and 140 photos

When you are there everyone does this, but some trips better than others.
The one I went on was for a week visiting 4 Parks and camping out in them, with travel by an ex army 4 tonne truck. Much more interesting then the highly tacky and commercialised safaris most people go on. Got to see a lot more animals as it was slow paced and got to feel closer to them without having glass in the way as the truck was open. You also got to travel fairly extensively around the country and see a bit more than the average tourist. Booked it in Nairobi but can't remember the company sorry. Look aroiund and you get a better experience rather than just going with the standard package option where you are herded around like cattle.
