Introduction

&Assur T

he Kenya Association of Tour Operators (KATO) is a Nairobi-based trade body which is responsible for the promotion and regulation of safaris and tours across Kenya.

KATO was established in 1978 and has since helped hundreds of tour operators to provide professional and regulated safari experiences to clients wishing to experience the magic of Kenya. KATO works closely with other tourism-related associations, in addition to the Kenya Tourism Board, to promote Kenya as an attractive destination to visitors from across the world. KATO’s membership is divided into seven categories: A to E for full members of KATO, plus associate and affiliate members. All companies that join KATO are initially classified as associate members. After one year of membership, each company is graded on its gross annual turnover and recategorised as an A, B, C, D or E member. Affiliate members, however, are local companies or individuals who can offer a benefit to KATO such as tourist attractions or hospitality companies.

safari within Kenya are encouraged to contact a member of KATO to be sure they are using a legitimate, professional and experienced tour operator. Contact details for each member can be found in the second half of this publication.

VARIETY Aside from safaris, for which Kenya is globally renowned, many of KATO’s members offer a variety of exciting tours and activities that showcase some of Kenya’s other wonders. The coast, for example, is a haven for sun-seekers, water sports enthusiasts and culture vultures, while there are excellent opportunities for mountain climbing, birdwatching and golf elsewhere. No matter the preferred reason for visiting Kenya, visitors can be sure they will be in safe and reliable hands with any one of KATO’s many registered members.

Each member of KATO is bound by a strict code of conduct, outlined by the association, which ensures that clients receive the highest possible quality of service. Those wishing to organise a

Foreword – Ministry of Tourism

Our vision for a vibrant tourism sector

I

am pleased to introduce the 2018-2019 Edition of the KATO Accredited Safari Operators Guide, which is a very valuable resource in destination marketing. I commend KATO for maintaining high standards in the publication.

We thank the Kenyan people for peacefully voting during the just-concluded 2017 General Elections, which the international community has observed were conducted in a credible, free, fair and transparent manner by IEBC. It is now time to reconcile our people, rebuild our country by all of us pulling together in one direction. Let us work harder to improve our economy for the benefit of all wananchi. These are very exciting times for Kenya as a destination and for my Ministry as the key facilitating agency. A couple of years ago the industry was in a slump and we faced the daunting task of identifying solutions to the various challenges that dogged the sector. Through a collaborative

effort with industry stakeholders, the country is now witnessing very positive growth in tourist numbers and especially in the safari circuits. Kenya’s tourism sector recorded a growth of about 17 per cent in both arrivals and revenue receipts in 2016. The Ministry has been urging Kenyan tourism operators to diversify and expand their source markets in order to grow the sector. We have also spurred tourism operators to explore new revenue streams, including business or conference tourism and domestic tourism.

BLUEPRINT To initiate innovation and change within the tourism sector, we developed the National Tourism Strategy Blueprint 2030 premised on four pillars: Product Development Strategy, Infrastructure Strategy, Investment Promotion Strategy and Marketing Strategy.

As set out in this Blueprint, our vision is to achieve a booming and sustainable tourism industry that is vibrant and innovative. We want to see our visitors connect with our unique people through the diverse tourism experiences that we have to offer. I commend the efforts of the sector Associations, such as KATO, to complement Government efforts in growing destination Kenya by maintaining high standards for their members. I challenge the various tourism Associations to fully implement self-regulation amongst their membership, so as to enhance service delivery to our visitors. In conclusion, on behalf of the Government and people of Kenya, I welcome all intending tourists to visit our beautiful country and enjoy not only the diverse product on offer but also the warm hospitality of the Kenyan people. Karibuni na Asante.

Foreword – KATO Chairman

A time of remarkable recovery

I

t is with great pleasure that I present to you the 2018-2019 KATO Accredited Safari Operators Guide. Most travellers are always concerned with ensuring that they have a credible safari operator and this guide presents you with a wide choice from among the best. As usual, KATO members have continued to maintain high standards of service delivery in order to allow intending visitors to realise this goal. Kenya’s tourism sector is currently undergoing remarkable recovery, with 2017 showing a marked improvement over previous years. The turnabout is attributed to several factors, key amongst these being a newfound partnership between the Government and the private sector. The partnership saw collaborative efforts to address key concerns, mainly about security and improved destination presence in key source markets. The partnership saw the implementation of several key initiatives such as reversal of travel advisories and other programmes such as charter incentive, waiving of visa fees for children under 16 and removal of VAT on tour operator services.

The country has further witnessed very good achievements in the conferencing segment and has managed to attract very high-profile meetings, key amongst which were the 14th Session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD 14) as well as the Sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI). These efforts have been further supplemented by very good progress made in opening up new markets, especially in the Far East.

COLLABORATION KATO has remained at the forefront of the above efforts in our continued collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and other key industry players to ensure that the country remains on a positive trajectory. We will continue playing a key role in marketing the country as well as providing a ground experience that matches the marketing promise. The role of the tour operators in helping to grow visitor numbers into Kenya cannot be overstated. KATO members have over the last 39 years continued in the tradition of offering

quality services to the travelling public and they currently account for almost 75 per cent of all tourist traffic in the country. This is expected to grow in the years to come and the association is well equipped to face this challenge. The year 2017 has marked a turning point in Kenya’s tourism and with the general elections now behind us the country is poised to achieve dramatic growth in the sector. I take this opportunity to welcome all intending visitors to Kenya – the cradle of mankind – and as you book your safaris to come and experience the beauty of Magical Kenya, be sure to select a reputable tour operator such as these bonded operators listed in the KATO Accredited Safari Operators Guide. Karibuni Kenya.

Foreword – KATO CEO

Upholding best standards of service

K

enya remains a formidable long-haul tourism destination and in recent years has made very good inroads to the Far East markets. The destination has witnessed tremendous growth in visitor numbers in 2017 and this comes as a very welcome development to industry players. The destination still boasts of the several key attractions that over the years have made Kenya stand out as a preferred safari destination.

Our ever vibrant Ethics and Standards SubCommittee continues to play a crucial role of overseeing enforcement of the Code of Conduct for members. This ensures that the positive image of the association, and by extension its members, is upheld. Trust is a crucial element in decision making and it is that trust that KATO continues to foster.

KATO has continued with its long-standing tradition of doing what it does best – setting and maintaining high standards for service delivery in tour operations. Our membership has continued to grow and this has been very well complemented by the Member Bond Scheme that was started by the association in 2013.

Whilst the role of tour operators is increasingly coming under siege from emerging challenges, using the services of a reputable ground handler still remains the most viable option for many travellers. The emerging advancements in the digital realm bring to the forefront the need for innovation and change by tour operators; and through appropriate innovation there are endless opportunities

INNOVATION

for tour operators to engage effectively with the more independent travellers. As an association, we will continue to be the key driver of the innovation and change on behalf of our members. Lobby remains one of KATO’s key objectives; and through efforts over the years we finally saw the launch of the dedicated Tourist Service Vehicle (TSV) category of licence that will be available only to licensed tour operators. This is a very welcome development that will help to clearly distinguish tourist vehicles from other means of transportation. In this updated guide we have presented the accredited tour operators who are bonded by the association. It is highly recommended that intending visitors to Kenya use services procured only from licensed tour operators and preferably members of a trade association that offers the protection of a Code of Conduct for members. We look forward to welcoming many of you to enjoy the spectacular beauty of Destination Kenya.

Destination Kenya

Experience

A DIFFERENT KIND OF KENYA EVERY DAY

O

n a visit to Kenya, you can enjoy a different experience every day. With its incredible diversity of landscapes, cultures, wildlife and activities, Kenya offers endless opportunities for a truly great visitor experience.

Safaris

The diversity of game in Kenya is simply astounding. From the Big Five to a whole range of other animals, large and small, Kenya’s game parks, reserves and other protection areas are home to some of the world’s most spectacular wildlife. The backdrop is a series of landscapes and geographical features that can only be described as amazing. Perhaps the crowning glory of Kenya’s wildlife scene is the annual migration in the Masai Mara between mid July and late October. This is one of the world’s great wildlife spectacles, as hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, zebra, Thomson’s gazelle, topi and eland make the epic journey.

Kenya is a country with a very diverse range of scenery and habitats. Many of these fascinating places are relatively close to one another – and most of them are readily accessible thanks to Kenya’s excellent domestic travel infrastructure. The country has a rich diversity of wildlife, so that no two visitor experiences are ever the same. In the course of a single visit to Kenya, it’s possible to see tropical forests, beautiful beaches and deserts, climb mountains and explore the wild. Many visitors like to organise a safari that combines adventure with relaxation, luxury with natural simplicity and social experiences with solitude. Marius Dobilas / Shutterstock.com

Specialinterest

Kenyans love to celebrate and have fun. All over the country, festivals offer a vibrant showcase for the culture, heritage and pride of the nation. Visitors are welcome to come and engage in the colourful events and festivals that bring life to the streets of the host cities and towns.

Events and festivals

Kenya is a hotbed for special interest tours. These specially designed tours offer a novel way for travellers to discover new aspects of a favourite topic of interest. Whether you’re an avid birdwatcher, or you’re into film and photography, or you like to trace the history of past conflict through a tour of battle sites or you want to feel the benefit of high-altitude training, Kenya is the place to go.

Destination Kenya

Golf

Water sports

For golfers on holiday in Kenya, the idea of teeing off on a beautiful course on a lovely morning is their idea of heaven – offering a perfect break from the safari circuit. The Kenyan climate is ideal for golf all year round and there is a diverse range of courses, many of them featuring top-class facilities. Little wonder that Kenya is one of the world’s top golfing destinations.

As an antidote to your busy working life, the simple idea of being out on the water – or in the water or under the water – is hard to beat. And it can also be totally exhilarating. Kenya is one of the best places in the world for water sports. Its wild rivers, lakes and the Indian Ocean itself offer the perfect opportunity for all kinds of water-focused activities, both motorised and manual. From sailing to snorkelling to white water rafting, Kenya has it all.

Kenya’s top golf clubs are well up to international standards, with courses that have been designed and landscaped by some of the best in the business. The nation’s golf and country clubs offer first-rate facilities along with a high quality of service built on Kenya’s reputation for welcoming visitors.

Entertainment and nightlife

Active travel

C ulture and heritage

Food and drink

If you’re one of those people who love to immerse themselves in another culture and learn about the lives and history of its people, then Kenya is a dream destination. Kenya is home to more than 40 ethnic cultural groups. These, along with Europeans, Asians, Indians and others from across the world, have come together in Kenya to form its national identity. In addition to a cultural tour, you could choose to stay in a local village and experience its traditional way of life – or you can sample the urban culture in Kenya’s cities, where the fast life is never fast enough.

No visit to Kenya would be complete without enjoying a plate of nyama choma (grilled meat) and a cold Tusker lager. There is, however, much more to the country’s culinary scene than these two favourites. It ranges from an abundance of fresh seafood at the coast to a hugely diverse array of international restaurants in Nairobi.

There’s nothing like winding down and treating yourself to a grand evening out once you have sampled Kenya’s top safari destinations. In cities and towns they keep the action going with buzzing bars and nightclubs where you can dance the night away or simply enjoy a drink with friends. Kenyans love a good party, so why not join in and make a few Kenyan friends and learn a thing or two about the Kenyan social scene.

Activity holidays are more popular than ever, and Kenya offers the kind of challenges that are guaranteed to get the heart pumping and the adrenalin flowing. There are opportunities to reach the summit of Mount Kenya, or go paragliding in the Kerio Valley, or ride a bike through Mount Longonot National Park or climb the rocks of Hell’s Gate. Away from the vast savannah grasslands, Kenya offers amazing landscapes dotted with adventure trails, especially in the Rift Valley and Central Kenya.


Sustainable tourism

Green

T

oday, when tourists visit Kenya, they want to relax and enjoy its natural beauty, secure in the knowledge that their chosen accommodation is having a minimal impact on the ecosystem that underpins that beautiful scenery.

Ecotourism Kenya’s coveted gold, silver and bronze eco-ratings have done much to promote environmental awareness and to persuade many property owners of the commercial advantages to be gained from such an award.

Sustainability is a vital part of the nation’s tourism product – one that concerns hotels, lodges and camps as well as tour operators.

The organisation’s annual Eco-Warrior Award has also helped to reinforce the green message across the tourism sector. The award scheme is keenly contested, not least because of the prestige to be gained from being among the prize-winners.

One cannot mention Kenya’s green tourism credentials without reference to Ecotourism Kenya. From its offices in the Upper Hill district of Nairobi, Ecotourism Kenya has led an energetic and skilful campaign to encourage greater eco-awareness in the nation’s hospitality sector and to put sustainability at the heart of the nation’s drive for greater income from tourism. Its influence in relation to sustainable tourism cannot be overstated.

CONSERVING NATURE The aim of Ecotourism Kenya is ‘to involve tourists in environmental conservation activities directly linked to addressing human development needs and to promote the equitable sharing of benefits accrued from tourism with local communities while supporting their nature conservation values.’

ECO-RATINGS As at mid 2017 a total of 31 properties (mostly camps and lodges but including some hotels) have been credited with Ecotourism Kenya’s gold rating, while 57 have the silver rating and about 23 are bronze rated. Thus, well over 100 Kenyan properties now have an official eco-rating.

Plastic bag ban After three unsuccessful attempts over the last 10 years, Kenya finally joins the ranks of countries that have put in place measures to curb the use of plastic. This comes following the ban on the use of plastic bags that came into effect on 28th August 2017. The initial enforcement will target manufacturers, sellers and importers of the plastic, with penalties including fines and imprisonment for those caught breaking the new law. Plastic bags are believed to take between 500 to 1000 years to fully degrade and are harmful to marine life, domestic animals and wildlife. The new measures are expected to address the use of plastic bags and introduce more environmentally friendly alternatives. Visitors coming to Kenya are required to note and comply with the ban and avoid bringing any plastic bags into the country.

Today, a growing number of visitors want to be sure their accommodation meets certain environmental standards as well as offering good service, comfort and food. And, thanks to organisations such as Ecotourism Kenya, the nation is showing it can meet these requirements.

FUTURE FOR KENYA

Nairobi

EAST AFRICA’S MOST

Exciting C ity

Fondly known as the ‘safari capital of the world’, Nairobi is a bustling, cosmopolitan city famous for its wildlife, world-class hotels and lively but friendly locals. Much more than just a safari stopover, the city deserves to be explored by anyone who finds themself in town, even for one night.

F

amously the only city in the world to have a national park within its borders, Nairobi is a truly magical place. Animal lovers will no doubt be impressed by its offerings, but Nairobi is much more than a wildlife hotspot.

Aside from the national park, which is home to rhino as well as giraffe and zebra, you can visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a sanctuary for orphaned elephants and rhinos. A stone’s throw from the orphanage and national park is the Giraffe Centre, an educational centre and sanctuary for giraffes. Within the centre’s grounds you will also find the world-famous Giraffe Manor, with an opportunity to share your breakfast with some of the resident Rothschild’s giraffes.

an iconic landmark that towers above the central business district. It’s no secret that Nairobians like to have a good time. As the sun sets, the city comes alive with groups of friends heading out for cocktails and Tuskers, or for a fun-filled night of dancing at one of the city’s many nightclubs. Weekends are especially bustling, but don’t discount the week nights – as long as there’s something going on, people will be there.

Many visitors to Nairobi are in town for at least one night and can take advantage of the city’s quality accommodation, ranging from international hotel chains like InterContinental, Best Western and Hilton to boutique properties such as House of Waine and Hemingways Nairobi. With more and more hotels opening up each year across the city, visitors are spoilt for choice. The hospitality scene has truly boomed in recent years, helping to underline Nairobi’s status as the MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) capital of East Africa. The city has seen a variety of international events and high-profile visits in recent years, including one by Barack Obama, the former United States president. The city’s best-known MICE facility is the Kenyatta International Convention Centre,

ACCOMMODATION

Much like Nairobi’s hotel sector, its restaurant scene is flourishing, with an eclectic range of cuisine, both local and international, guaranteed to impress even the fussiest eater. The classic Kenyan dish is nyama choma (grilled meat) which is served throughout the city in both ramshackle roadside joints and sophisticated restaurants. It’s a ‘must try’ for meat lovers. In addition, visitors will be delighted by the huge variety of international cuisine on offer in the capital, from Ethiopian to Japanese to Brazilian

and everything in between. And let’s not forget Kenya’s amazing coffee, which can be sampled at outlets on virtually every street in the city. Nairobi isn’t short of ideas for a fun-filled day out, no matter what your age or interest. In addition to wildlife-focused activities, visitors will find golf courses, museums, an ice skating rink, upmarket shopping malls and even a cheese factory in the city’s vicinity.


MICE

MICE SECTOR GOES FROM

In recent years Kenya has hosted large numbers of regional, national and international events, including world conferences, and there has been a steady rise in MICE visitor arrivals. The government has stepped up its budget for tourism marketing and promotion and is also spending more on improved security. In the course of 2017 the government plans to set up a national Kenya Convention Bureau to boost this sector still further. Kenya has won international acclaim for its improved MICE sector, with Nairobi being named

‘Africa’s Leading Meetings & Conference Destination’ at the 2016 World Travel Awards. The country’s best-known venue is the 1970s-built Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) in Nairobi, which hosted the 14th United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD 14) and the Sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI) in 2016.

FACILITIES

(at Radisson Blu, Nairobi, in March), Power & Energy Kenya (at KICC in April) and Oil, Gas & Mines Africa (at KICC in May). It will also be hosting the EuroCHRIE Conference in October. Further ahead, Kenya has won the bid to host the 2018 world congress of Skål in October (in Mombasa). Other key events in 2018 will be the sixth biennial regional conference of Ruforum and the 27th congress of the International Primatological Society (both in Nairobi).

In addition to the KICC, many other top-class facilities have been established in more recent times to cater for events both large and small.

Away from Nairobi, other areas of Kenya have been raising their MICE tourism profile by developing their conference venues and hotels, for example in Eldoret and Kisumu.

In the first half of 2017 Kenya hosted the Africa Health Agenda International Conference

COAST Down at the coast, Mombasa has several key MICE venues, in addition to hotels in Diani, Malindi, Watamu and beyond which can cater for a variety of meetings, events and conferences.

K

enya has continued to build on its success in the MICE sector, where its principal cities have achieved a well-deserved reputation as the venue of choice for meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions.

Parks, reserves and conservancies

Thrills Kenya, the safari capital of Africa, is home to some of the best national parks in the world, offering visitors a wealth of extraordinary experiences across its many parks, reserves and conservancies.

U

ndeniably the most famous national reserve in Kenya is the Masai Mara, home to the annual wildebeest migration, one of the world’s natural wonders, when over a million wildebeest, zebra and antelope make the long and often dangerous journey between the Mara and Serengeti.

COME AS STANDARD ON A KENYAN SAFARI

In addition to the migration, the Masai Mara is home to the Big Five (elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion and rhino) along with dozens of other mammal species and hundreds of different types of bird, making it one of the most wildlife-abundant areas in the world. Visitors will also find a great selection of lodges and camps throughout the Masai Mara. While the Mara might be the most famous park in the country, Nairobi National Park has a unique status as the world’s only national park on the edge of a capital city. Game drives can be done in a day, or even half a day, so it’s a very convenient way to sample the wildlife of Kenya without leaving Nairobi. The largest, and also one of the oldest, national parks in Kenya is Tsavo East National Park, which is separated from Tsavo West by a highway. Tsavo East is known for its huge numbers of elephant and its association with the infamous ‘man-eaters of Tsavo’ – two lions that killed many workers during the construction of the KenyaUganda railway in 1898. Those two lions are part of history now, but other, less menacing lions can still be found there today. Tsavo West is smaller than its neighbour, but has a rich wildlife population and a diverse birdlife. The varied landscape, with its natural springs, swamps, plains and rocky peaks, makes for a visually exciting safari full of diversity. Against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli has everything you would expect from a national park: the Big Five, breathtaking scenery

and a range of habitats to explore. Most famously, Amboseli is noted for its large herds of elephant – almost a guaranteed sight on any safari.

CONSERVANCIES Unlike national parks and reserves, conservancies are privately owned plots of land, set aside by a landowner, community or corporate body, that have a focus on conservation. There are conservancies of various sizes all across Kenya. Many of them have played a successful role in helping to conserve the environment, protect endangered species and create sustainable tourism. For example, Ol Pejeta has been instrumental in protecting rhino. As well as being the largest black rhino sanctuary in the world, it is home to the last three remaining northern white rhino. And the Laikipia Conservancy is the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees. In addition to helping protect the environment and care for endangered or injured animals, many of Kenya’s conservancies are keen to welcome visitors who would like to know more about conservation. They arrange walks and game drives so that visitors can experience the work being done by the conservancy.

MARINE PARKS AND RESERVES Kenya is also home to several marine parks and reserves at the coast. Watamu Marine National Park and Reserve has about 600 species of fish and is known for its many species of turtle and its magnificent coral reefs. Just down the coast, Mombasa Marine National Park, located between Mtwapa Creek and Tudor Creek, is easy to reach from nearby hotels and tourist sites. Thanks to its location, Mombasa Marine National Park is arguably the most visited of Kenya’s marine parks and offers an ideal environment for snorkelling and diving. If you prefer not to get your feet wet, there are trips in a glass-bottom boat. Towards the Tanzanian border, Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park & Reserve is a haven for divers and home to exciting marine life including dolphins, whales, turtles and over 200 recorded fish species.

hose looking for a greater understanding of the culture and people of Kenya may wish to combine their safari experience with cultural tours and visits.

Kenya is home to a rich and colourful blend of tribes, traditions and cultural heritage. The best known and most photographed tribes are the Maasai and related Samburu tribes, who live a pastoral life in areas rich in wildlife. Visitors can meet Maasai and Samburu in their manyattas and visit local schools. Many of Kenya’s other tribes no longer retain their traditional way of life, although a notable exception is the Nilotic Turkana people, who live in the far north.

WWW.KATOKENYA.ORG

Spending time with local people in their own villages is an ideal introduction to the culture and lifestyle of Kenya. There are opportunities to visit unspoilt villages and spend time in people’s homes learning about their everyday lives and getting involved. The village experience in Kenya is the most vivid way to understand the traditional culture of the 42 tribes of Kenya.

VILLAGES Travel north to the El Molo villages on the shores of Lake Turkana and get to know the strange lifestyles of the nation’s smallest tribes; or visit the village of Alego Nyangoma Kogelo in western Kenya, the ancestral home of former US pres-

ident Barack Obama. Meanwhile, down south, there’s the fascinating Gede Ruins, the remains of historical Swahili villages. For couples on the verge of matrimony, there is the fascinating option of going to Kenya for a magical Turkana wedding. The bridal visitors will be accommodated in the homes of villagers, where a warm and friendly welcome is guaranteed. Most importantly, any costs they incur during their stay will go directly to support the livelihoods of the local community, specifically their host family. Other activities include guided walks through projects supporting the villages, farm work, trekking, shopping in the markets, ecotours and interactive handicraft workshops.

Adventure tourism

FOR THAT EXTRA BIT OF

Adventure

Balloon safaris

E

very safari is a kind of adventure, especially for first-time visitors who have never felt the special atmosphere of the African bush or encountered a wild animal in its own habitat.

But for those looking to enhance the thrill factor – or set themselves a bit of a physical challenge – Kenya offers a range of novel experiences that are guaranteed to deliver that little bit extra.

Each day, more than a dozen hot air balloons rise from sites across the Mara. Take-off is just before dawn, allowing guests to catch the first glimpse of the sun and see the animals begin to stir. These hour-long flights are one of life’s truly great experiences.

Mountain biking

C amel safaris

In some wildlife areas, such as Mount Kenya National Park, you can view the local wildlife from horseback. Even the most inexperienced riders can enjoy this thrill under the expert supervision of guides.

Self-drive safaris For unrestricted adventure, why not hire a 4x4 safari vehicle and enjoy the freedom of a selfdrive tour. This is particularly recommended in the northern parks and is also available in the Masai Mara, Amboseli and Tsavo.

Horse riding safaris

Joseph Sohm

Mountain biking has grown in popularity. Enthusiasts can ride in areas such as Hell’s Gate National Park, while events such as ‘10 to 4’ have earned international acclaim.

An accompanied camel safari – most common in the arid northern area of Kenya – is an offbeat option. The camels are used mainly to carry equipment and to accompany walking safaris, but they can be ridden where the terrain allows.

Walking and climbing

Organised walking and climbing safaris can be arranged through a specialist operator. Challenging treks include Mount Kenya, Mount Elgon and the Aberdares.

Big game f ishing Down at the coast, thrill-seekers can go big game fishing, mainly from Malindi and Watamu. Ocean fishing in Kenya was originally made famous by writer and macho man Ernest Hemingway.

n contrast to lazing around the pool all day or going for a leisurely stroll on a sandy beach, so-called ‘hands on’ holidays are becoming increasingly popular in Kenya, with agrotourism offering many opportunities for tourists to get involved in the everyday lives of local people. Thanks to Kenya’s booming export industry, which includes tea, coffee, fish, flowers, fruit and vegetables, there are plenty of areas where tourists can get involved and experience the life of a farmer or fisherman at first hand. Agrotourism is regarded as a mutually beneficial type of tourism that allows visitors an opportunity to experience something more than a traditional holiday, while local communities and workers

receive additional assistance that can aid longterm development.

TEA AND COFFEE Tea and coffee are two of Kenya’s biggest products, so there are plenty of opportunities for tourists to get involved with activities on some of the country’s many tea and coffee farms. Tea plantations are commonly found in areas close to Nairobi, including Kericho and Limuru, so there is relatively easy access from the capital city.

more about the industry and lend a helping hand to local workers. Much of the tea and coffee production in Kenya is done manually, so no expert knowledge or experience is generally needed and tourists can help out simply by joining in with local workers on the plantations. A handful of tour operators offer agrotourism packages, although those wishing to take part in such experiences can also make inquiries directly to the estates or farms they are interested in visiting.

Further north, around the Aberdares, Mount Kenya and beyond, there are many coffee plantations, with opportunities for agrotourists to learn

Sports tourism

A PLACE JUST MADE FOR

s t r o p S g in y o j En K

enya is a ‘go to’ destination for visitors who want to play and take part in various sports – and the reasons are clear. Kenyans are passionate about sport and have a record of excellence across a range of sports.

As a result, Kenya is blessed with first-rate sports facilities – some a legacy of earlier times, others newly established – that have proved a magnet for visitors.

Golf When it comes to golf, Kenya has a climate that could have been specially invented for the game. There are over 40 golf courses in Kenya, with more on the way. They range from mature courses dating from colonial times to a series of superb

newer courses including Great Rift Valley, Vipingo Ridge, the still-to-be-finished Aberdare Hills and others now under construction.

Mountain biking is now popular in areas such as Hell’s Gate National Park, while conventional road cycling is growing, too.

Nairobi is home to three of the country’s finest golf courses – Muthaiga (home of the Kenya Open), Windsor and Karen – while such gems as Limuru and Sigona are located near the Kenyan capital. Away from Nairobi, large towns such as Nakuru, Mombasa and Eldoret also have courses. Among the venues on offer, visitors will find both 18-hole and nine-hole courses.

Sport f ishing

Kenya has a fine history of middle and long distance running and Iten, near Eldoret, has long been a base for high-altitude training. Today, many athletes go on extended stays in Iten to take advantage of its facilities.

Sport fishing has been associated with Kenya ever since Ernest Hemingway went marlin hunting in the 1930s. Today, Kenya has a well developed sport fishing sector, with coastal venues such as Watamu and Malindi as well as Mtwapa, north of Mombasa. From December to April, fishermen go offshore in search of blue and black marlin, tuna and shark, while inshore there are sailfish, trevally, kingfish and barracuda.

Sporting nation

In addition, Kenyans go in for ‘sevens’ rugby, one-day cricket and basketball, while soccer is played with great enthusiasm and the Kenya Premier League has proved a success.

When it comes to sport, Kenya is probably best known for its athletes, especially its middle and long distance runners.

IT’S THE

WITH THE MOST

hile Kenya is best known for its national parks, the country’s wonderful Indian Ocean coast is an ideal destination for those in search of sun, sea and panoramic views. Whether you’re heading to the coast for some post-safari downtime or staying for two weeks at an all-inclusive retreat, this multifaceted region has something for everyone.

MOMBASA Kenya’s second city is a vibrant mix of cultures, with influences from India, Arabia and Africa combining to make an unmissable destination. Commanding the harbour of Mombasa and the coast beyond is Fort Jesus, a Portuguese fort dating from the 16th century. Arguably the city’s most famous landmark, it is now a Unesco World Heritage Centre. Next to the fort is Mombasa’s Old Town, also a Unesco site, where local history can be traced in its intricately carved doors and fine old buildings. On the city’s north coast, linked by a bridge to Mombasa Island, is Nyali, an upmarket residential area boasting some of the best accommodation in the area. The excellent beach here is popular with tourists and locals alike.

Further up the coast is Watamu, known for its marine national park and laid-back ambience. Then there’s the sophisticated town of Malindi, especially popular with Europeans because of its wonderful beaches and quality accommodation. This charming old town extends a warm welcome to both local people and visitors.

LAMU At the northern end of the coast, Lamu is a unique destination, famous as one of the best-preserved Swahili settlements in East Africa. Here, people get around on donkeys because the streets are too narrow for motorised transport.

NORTH COAST

DIANI BEACH

From the northern outskirts of Mombasa right up to Lamu, visitors to the North Coast are spoilt for choice when it comes to elegant accommodation and palm-fringed beaches.

Although Kenya’s South Coast is much shorter than the North, it more than compensates for this by way of world-class accommodation and award-winning beaches. The famous Diani Beach, with its white sand and azure waters, is regularly voted one of the best beaches in Africa and, indeed, the world. Diani Beach is popular with everyone from surfers to sun-seekers and offers accommodation ranging from budget hostels to exquisite resorts.

Kilifi County, in the north of Mombasa County, is home to a handful of coastal towns that are definitely worth a visit. Kilifi town itself is calm and tranquil, with an emerging tourism scene and lush scenery. A dhow ride in Kilifi Creek is a ‘must do’.
