Kenya budget travel ideas from Nairobi… Overland-style!by Tania Wheeler

If you have been dreaming of venturing into one of the most beautiful and wild destinations in Africa, with Masai warriors and vast open plains, then Kenya budget travel gives you the chance to explore the land of rich culture, abundant wildlife and spectacular scenery. This is the country made famous by the Academy Award winning film, Out of Africa – famous for its endless stretches of savannah that is dotted with teeming herds of elephant, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra and lion.

Kenya is one of the top safari destinations in the world, and for very good reason. The country has something for everyone, from the breathtaking open spaces and prolific wildlife of the Masai Mara National Reserve, to the flamingo-filled lakes that turn pink as thousands of these birds take flight over the water, the beaches of Mombasa and tribal villages throughout the country, all the way through to the bustling markets and busy streets of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital.

Nairobi overland offers the best way to explore the highlights of Kenya, ensuring a highly memorable trip that covers all the top attractions within this fascinating country. Some of the top tours that you could consider that start in Nairobi include the following Kenya budget travel experiences:

Masai Mara National Reserve If wildlife spotting and bird watching is what you are after, then a tour covering the incredible Masai Mara National Reserve is not to be missed. Bordering the neighboring Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, this reserve is the site of one of the most spectacular sights on the planet – the annual wildebeest migration, where millions of wildebeest cross over from the Serengeti into the Masai Mara in a thundering cloud of dust. The reserve also boasts huge numbers of game, from big predators such as lion and leopard, to giraffe, elephant and many others. No Nairobi overland experience beats the Masai Mara Reserve when it comes to wildlife sighting!

Nairobi to Dar Es Salaam Another huge benefit to Kenya budget travel is its proximity to neighboring countries such as Tanzania – another excellent overland destination. Many Nairobi tours allow you to experience the best of both worlds, with travel between Kenya and Tanzania to visit some of the country’s hot spots such as Dar Es Salaam – one of the most exotic and fascinating cities in Africa. From the sights and attractions of Kenya’s capital, you can then enjoy all the highlights of Tanzania’s capital. Famous for its Arabic influence, spice markets and rich culture, this city is not to be missed.

Serengeti National Park Also in Tanzania, the Serengeti National Park is one of Africa’s most renowned game reserves. The reserve is also where the annual wildebeest migration takes place, ensuring an unforgettable wildlife experience that is sure to enthrall almost any nature lover. The reserve is also home to large numbers of lion, flamingo, elephant and other species, plus a huge number of bird species.

East Africa Game Parks Another great option for wildlife enthusiasts, an East Africa Game Parks tour offers a chance to enjoy some of Africa’s top game park destinations – from Kenya’s Masai Mara to Tanzania’s Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Here you can see abundant game and bird life, and get a taste for the breathtaking beauty of East Africa. For the ultimate wildlife experience, this is Nairobi overland adventure at its best.
