What are the main touristic attractions in Kenya?
With diverse endowments of natural resources, breathtaking landscapes and very beautiful beaches, Kenya remains the country of choice as a tourist destination, in fact the “whole of African continent in one shop”. Our national parks are wildlife-rich, with some like the Mara (Lion Country) hosting all of the Big Five game and unique ones where game drives can be done on foot. Our lakes, some inside the parks, provide arrays of birdlife, e.g. Nakuru (Birdwatchers’ Paradise) that hosts 1000’s of flamingos and over 450 species of other birds. Others provide unforgettable boating experiences and fishing expeditions. Kenya also offers climbing experiences of snow-capped mountains and the best view of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain (5895M).
When is the best time to visit Kenya?
Our Country is good, with perfect weather all year round for safari even though it gets better between July and October when the world-famous wildebeest migration is deep in Masai Mara National Park from the Serengeti in Tanzania. As these wonder- animals move, they attract alongside, a huge big-cat population that preys on them and an equally huge number of herbivores which are sure not to miss the attractive pastures and water that these migrants source.
What types of Safaris and holidays does Nature Objective offer?
We offer both Camping and Lodge Safaris. Camping package which is best suited for budget travelers, we put you up in tents in our campsites and/or budget hotels (where applicable). For a lodge package which is pegged at slightly higher costs, we put you up in luxury lodges during your stay. We can always draft a suitable package for you that will include both camping and lodge upon request.
Do you cater for visitors with special dietary needs?
Nature Objectives Tours and Safaris do cater for all dietary needs (from Meat-lovers to Vegetarians and Halal guests). We always welcome requests for the special dietary needs prior to the Safari to give us adequate time to prepare for the same.
Can you also come up with tailor-made itineraries that are off the beaten track, upon request?
Yes We Can! We boast having fully qualified Tour Consultants who have many years of experience in the travel and hospitality industry. They are able to come up, fast, with customized and cost-friendly itineraries while making recommendations wherever necessary to suit the customer’s holiday needs.
Is it okay to book for a Safari in advance and what is the time-frame?
This is very possible and can be done way back from the safari-date. In fact we highly recommend this as it enables us to do early lodge booking arrangements which greatly increases guarantee of availability of accommodations at your destination(s) of choice. This is especially so for those who wish to do a safari during the High Season (July – October).
Security situation in Kenya, Is it Safe enough? Will I be safe?
Government of Kenya has security beefed up in the entire nation for both its locals and even visitors at large. Proper mechanisms are in place with security agencies and Kenya Wildlife Service who are mandated to protect and manage the national parks and wildlife in ensuring security in all the tourist destinations and wider country. Other Stakeholders like KATO, KTB and KTF also play a major role constantly in monitoring the state of situations (security included) and advice their members accordingly on the same. Armed with real time information, we are always able to recommend changes on itineraries as they come.
