Here is a list of the best tours and travel companies in Kenya. They offer everything from safari adventures to walking tours around Nairobi.
Kenya tops the bucket list for many tourists and travelers. It is a country with many things to do for backpackers and tourists. Watching wildebeest migration at Maasai Mara, Safari at the Amboseli National Park, relaxing at Diani beach, Climbing Mt. Kenya – every step you take in Kenya is magical.
Backpacking Kenya is affordable, and most places are easily accessible. But while I always vouch for independent travel, joining a tour company can help you experience hidden gems. It also saves you money from transportation and entry fees.
This list is based on the nature of experiences and reviews by travelers.
