The Do’s and Don’ts while booking Kenya Safaris

The dos and don’ts while booking Kenya Safaris are listed herein:

Select a safari package that fits your budget

As many as there are animals in the wild, so are there safari packages in Kenya. While on Kenya safaris, pick a safari package that resonates strictly to your style as well as your budget. There are so many things you can do while on a safari, it is therefore mandatory to see what works best for you and your budget and curve your trip around it. Do not pick a package just because they sounded more persuasive. Decide what length of stay is appropriate for you and choose a package that suits you well.

Look for an all-inclusive package

This is the best way to save you money and time trying to figure out what to do or where to go. This is especially advisable for people visiting Kenya for the first time. Choose a package that is all inclusive, that is accommodation, transportation as well as visits to the different attraction spots in the country. This will save you the hustle of trying to figure it out all by yourself.

Dress light

Kenya has a relatively warm climate only chilly in the morning and late afternoon. Carry clothing that will blend with the surroundings and are also light on your body like khaki and cotton clothes. Carry a hat or sunglasses to protect you from the scorching afternoon sun as well as sunscreen for the UV rays.

Don’t book with a lousy company

This is a point that needs to be stressed a thousand times. We all need to understand that there is fraud everywhere and there are people waiting to pounce on your hard earned money. They will come in many forms, including Tours Company. Look out for a company that has a track record and good reviews from people with honest assessments. If the deal looks too good, then it probably isn’t good.

Don’t ignore advice from your guides

While on Kenya Safaris, there will always be assigned safari guides who will always be by your side to take you around. Before any tour begins, the guides often give rules and regulations to be followed. Keep in mind all these rules and do not ignore them. If you need anything, ask the guide first whether it is okay, especially while out in the wild. The game reserve is not a zoo where the animals are enclosed in a cave. Here they are free, roaming about in their natural habitat and can be a danger if precautions are not taken.
