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 an overland truck group safari, or taking the self-drive option and camping in national parks and other safari destinations wherever possible. The best place to arrange a rental car or to look into group safaris is Nairobi, but there are also agencies in Mombasa. 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.
