There are excellent internal scheduled charter flights that connect Nairobi with the majority of National Parks in Kenya, as well as with Tanzania and Zanzibar. For those with time restraints there are private charters that can be arranged throughout.
Road conditions are very variable, there are long distances to be covered and 4x4 transport is required for most areas. We do not recommend this mode of travel in Kenya.
We use preferred partners, who can tailormake itineraries throughout the country.
What to Remember When Travelling Around Kenya
Driving in Kenya is on the left, giving way to traffic on the right at intersections. Kenyan roads are renowned for their many “driving obstacles” and drivers are cautioned to be vigilant at all times. Most of the roads are eroded at the edges and often converge into a single lane. Hazards include pedestrians, animals (both domestic and wild) and the notorious matatus (Kenya’s public transport vehicles).
Travelling by train or bus is not recommended in Kenya.
It is highly advisable to drive a 4WD vehicle in National Parks, where dirt roads feature potholes and teeth-chattering corrugations. After heavy rains, all roads should be treated with care, as flash floods can cause wash-aways.
Situated Southwest of Kenya, covering an area of 1 510 km2, the Masai Mara is a land of breathtaking vistas, abundant wildlife, and endless plains.
