Why you’ll love it
The Mara for the iconic wildebeest migration. Other classic big game destinations such as Amboseli and Tsavo are easily accessible as is the recently opened-up Laikipia Plateau region. Kenya’s tropical coast offers everything from buzzing resorts to exclusive island retreats making the country ideal for safari and beach vacations.
Something to think about
It’s a case of choosing when to go to on Safari in Kenya for the Masai Mara wildebeest migration, then go between mid-August and late October when the herds have returned from their months in Tanzania’s Serengeti. The best time to Explore Kenya beach destinations is a far point: Kenya’s Indian Ocean coast is hot and humid all year round and rain can fall at any time. We would however recommend avoiding the coast during the mid-March to late May season when temperatures and rainfall are at their highest.
From majestic wildlife to out-of-this-world natural wonders, enchanting beaches and intriguing cities, every bespoke GoExplore journey is thrilling. Unsure where to visit? Whether it’s a bucket-list adventure, a milestone celebration or simply a much-needed escape, experience the joy with this inspiring selection of favourites.

Soft-sided luggage or duffels are preferable to hard luggage for storage on safari vehicles and also on aircraft used throughout East Africa.

Note: Many properties provide insect repellent in rooms/tents. However, you may wish to bring your own preferred brand.
Laundry Service is available at most hotels, lodges and camps. Because some laundries in East Africa do not accept any underclothing, be prepared to wash your own smalls. Laundry techniques may not be suitable for delicate and/or synthetic fabrics.
Nairobi (Jomo Kenyatta International Airport)
Kenya’s capital city is home to East Africa’s unrivalled flight hub and will be your first landfall if you’re planning to go anywhere in Kenya – including the Masai Mara – as well as Uganda, Rwanda and indeed Tanzania and Zanzibar.

Money, Tipping & Gratitudes
The question of when and where not to tip can be difficult in a foreign country. We give you a quick guide to tipping destination guides, safari guides and waiters in Uganda/Kenya/Tanzania/Rwanda/Congo. In East Africa, it is normal to tip your driver/ guide at the end of a safari or hike, as well as any cook or porter that accompanies you. A figure of roughly USD10-20 per day would be a fair benchmark, while decisions regarding tipping rest entirely with you, we suggest some advice and that’s why we say it’s better to check this with your safari company in advance.
I see no reason why you shouldn’t give a bigger or smaller tip based on the quality of service. It’s not essential to tip the guides who take you around in the national parks and other reserves, but it is recommended, and the tip will surely be appreciated by the recipient, assuming the service has been excellent, anything given out is just fine.
In some African countries, it is hard to travel anywhere without being latched onto by a self-appointed guide, who will often expect a tip over and above any agreed fee.
Is travel insurance a necessity ?
At GoExplore Safaris we understand that a trip to Africa is a significant investment. It requires time, money and expert advice, and you need to be sure that you’re dealing with a trustworthy company. You don’t just want a great trip, you want complete peace of mind, before, during and after travel.
