ACCOMMODATION IN KENYA
Hotels - Lodges - Tented Camps
Below find a list of the accommodation in hotels, lodges and tented camps we regularly book for our clients on a safari in Kenya.
Hotels, with many rooms in one unit, are mostly found in Nairobi and at the coast because of limited space. Lodges (with few rooms per unit) are found in smaller towns and in the national parks but the most common type of accommodation in the parks is in tented camps.
These camps offer hotel rooms under canvas that are just as good and luxurious as what you find in a good hotel or lodge - no basic camping here. The unique thing about the tented camps is that you will hear all the sounds of nature while being safe in your tent.
