Kenya is a safe place for tourists to visit, but the areas of the country that border Somalia and the Eastleigh area should be avoided.
The currency used in Kenya is the Kenyan shilling, which is subdivided into 100 cents.
The best wildlife viewing months in Kenya are during the dry season from late June to October. The wildebeest migration usually reaches the Masai Mara in July until October. During January and February, the weather is hot, dry, and good for wildlife watching.
Women should wear loose, conservative clothes that cover their arms and legs. Men shouldn’t wear shorts or singlets in most areas.
The tap water is not safe to drink in Kenya, so stick to bottled water.
Anthony has been amazing throughout my planning of my tour. He has been very quick in replying to my emails and always answering with everything I wanted to know.
I look forward to hopefully planning my next trip through him next year!
Conscientious in early communication; knowledgeable, humorous and caring tour guides; an exemplary itinerary that was well organized yet flexible; an overall extraordinary experience. I'd recommend them enthusiastically.
The trip was excellent and very well run, we have no complaints it was exactly as we expected.The guide was knowledgable and courteous, it ran on time and accommodation was fine.We have no complaints and have now booked again to go to India.
The trip was as above and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, all destinations were as expected and lived up to our expectations.We went with the idea of visiting Turkey and especially Gallipoli which achieved our goals.The historical part of thetrip was very well done and memmorable.
This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.
My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
I was cautious about arriving in Egypt given the current circumstances about the country, but felt safer that I did living in London as soon as I arrived. All of the Encounters staff are very professional.
