Accommodation in Kenya Hotels
Kenya has an amazing variety of accommodation types. Hotels range from city high rises to sprawling thatched beach “villages. ” You can stay in private homes in the middle of a Kenya ranch/game sanctuary or in an “Arabian Nights” Swahili style house in a fishing village. You can stay in tents in the bush or grass shacks on the beach.
A homestay gives you the closets relationship with the country. You can stay in private homes and very often the owners are your host and guides. The homes range from upcountry colonial game ranches and homey farm houses to elegant villas by sea or lake.
Many of the favourite places to stay in Kenya are the private homestays. Some of the main features of homestays include:
Being hosted by people who are willing to share their love and knowledge of Kenya with you. Many host families date back to early European settlement days.
There are still some lords and Ladies among them.
• Personalized and individual treatment-you are one of a “select few” rather than art of a “tourist crowd”
• Staying in some very beautiful homes and ranches-some with fascinating histories and many in stunning and unspoiled settings.
• The opportunity to experience Kenya in a very personal and interactive fashion-you might go on a game walk or a horse ride on a ranch, go fishing or sailing with your host at the coast
• Enjoying food and service which are often superior to larger establishments.
• Being free to do what you want in your own time. Don’t hesitate to say if you just want to relax and enjoy the view.
Tented Camps Accommodation in Kenya
Most established tented camps in Kenya have very fancy tents which bear no resemblance to most people’s mental image of a “tent”. They are not cramped, dark, uncomfortable, or a way of roughing it. Often more luxurious than most hotel rooms, some tents even have bidets and four poster beds. You can even stay in a tent with a beautiful wooden floor and a big bathtub. On the other hand some tents offer more adventure with bucket showers and no electricity. They all tend to be completely enclosed with a floor attached to the sides-to keep out unwanted reptiles or insects. Mesh windows let in light and air, but canvas blinds can be zipped shut for privacy.
Try sleeping in a tent in Africa-it has a certain magic…feels like an adventure. You hear the night sounds, and you know you are somewhere special.
On the lower Budget end, there are some simple tented camps that cater for that market where the camp Kenya rates range from Usd 60-100 per night per person. Some of these could be said to be on the upper section of the budget end and are a real bargain.
Down right rouging it in Participatory Kenya animal park camp is also an option for the adventurous and young at heart. It also has the advantage that you can move camp more than twice in the same Kenya animal park for more variety. These are even cheaper but dependent on group size, the larger the group, the lower the cost per person.
