“As with Zanibar, best to take local currency. Advice by travel companies mean well to take dollars, however when taking into account exchange rate/commission at home and then the same applies when paying locally results in a huge loss. Best take local shillings. ”

“Kenya is an exciting and interedting country. There are pockets of wealth but fundimeataly its a developing third world country. The people are friendly on the whole and are desparate for support from the UK both in tourism and from the government. I think we need to make it easier to get their, also there are a lot of hidden costs, vacinations and visa's can add about £200 per person. We visited an orphanage near the hotel, perhaps the hotels could do more to support local schools or children centres. The beaches are public and prone to hawkers, some genuine some not, if genuine facilities were recognised it might help travellers to engage with locals. Taxis are almost the same price as in the UK which feels wrong when the local transport is so cheap. Also warn people about the distances between lodges and the state of the roads. One stretch was 50km, nearly 2 hours on a dirt track only passable in the dry season. All part of the experinece but would be tough for some. Need a better safari vehicle, such as a land cruiser. Also worth taking sweets. bens and old clothes to swap or donate to local children or villagers.”

“We had a fantastic time in Kenya. Everyone from Pollmans were so warm and friendly. They were more than happy to answer any questions we had, and teach us about the local culture, food and politics. The safari was even better than we anticipated. We could only afford a 3 day trip. But so much was packed in we saw plenty!”

“The best holiday I've ever had. I really enjoyed a few days relaxing at the resort when we first arrived and then of on safari and back again to enjoy another 7 days relasing.”

Rating 5/10 - Jonathan G

“Kenya is a poor country so you will see people live in different ways. All in all the people are very kind and friendly. The safari is well worth doing. the Kenya roads are bad so expect a few bumps on the way. The whether is June was ok with just a fews days of rain.”

Rating 10/10 - Joanne T

“The political situation in Kenya made it impossible to fully explore and enjoy the holiday. They were mainly restricted to staying in and around the hotel. When they did venture out they were a little taken aback by the poverty and the children begging. It is not somewhere that the family will be going back to.”

Rating 10/10 - Amanda J

Rating 9/10 - Paul M

“We did a 4 day Safari to Savo East & West and it was an experience that will remain with us for the rest of our lives. We also got to swim with wild Dolphins in the Indian Ocean which is an experience that needs no explination. BEACH BOYS! Everyone warns you to steer clear of the beach boys,but i sat on the beach & talked to them every day - most of them are just ordinary people trying to earn an honest living.”

Rating 10/10 - Louise W

“I would reccommend everything about the package we had the safari was nothing other than perfect, the accomodation, guides, locals, weather and animals. I would highly recommend Mombassa but wished we'd added 7 days to this break as apposed to 3. We didn't want to come home. The balloon trip was worth every penny and our stay at Giraffe manor.”

Rating 9/10 - Kamaljeet B

“fantastic place to go for good mix of cultural, relaxing, scenic, yet adventure filled land.”
