Value-for-money safari holiday in Kenya

market in nairobi Keep costs down by buying inexpensive food at stalls and market. Remember to always wash your produce before eating

Visitors who want to explore the major attractions without blowing too much money could think about joining a set departure or group safari, either with a safari company or with an overland truck and also to travel out of season. The set group departures in Kenya do have different accommodation options, starting from mid-range and going up.

Eating out is generally quite inexpensive unless you actively seek top-of-the-range restaurants aimed at upmarket tourist and expats. Wine is almost all imported and tends to be disproportionately expensive compared to the cheap and refreshing local beers.
