SENIOR CITIZEN TOURS
Kenya Travel for Active Baby Boomers
Travel to Africa is an out-of-comfort-zone experience to many senior travelers. We have complied the information & travel tips below, all gained from our hands-on experience, as well as interactions with active baby boomers who travel with us. We consider them hardy for active senior planning a safari to Kenya or to Africa:
- A travel tip on price – while you of course have a budget you want to stick to, let price not be your main yardstick in choosing an operator. Better to pay slightly more and you are sure of quality & provider’s reliability.
- You expect your provider for your senior citizen tour to offer inside info about Kenya + what is safely doable etc. But be on the look out that the provider will not push you to a safari that he thinks suits a 50plus traveler and not one that suit your interests. You don’t have to take an off-the-shelf safari package where you are cooped up in a safari bus all day.
- If taking a group tour – find out the likely composition of the group. Though many senior citizens are young at heart, they still prefer a group with like-minded elder travelers. It might stretch your patience if for 2 weeks you are in a group of 22 year olds.
