An abundance of different safari tours to Kenya
are offered by travel
companies around the world. It may be hard telling a better tour from a worse,
as the itineraries may look quite similar; many tours visit the same parks,
and the brochures and web sites show pictures of the same animals.
Tours to Kenya and Tanzania
The Kenyan and Tanzanian safari industries are quite well developed. There are safari
tours catering for most visitors, including families, singles and elderly. No language
skills are necessary on tours that include a tour
leader speaking your own language. Few lodges,
camps or hotels have adaptations to guests in wheelchairs.
Tanzania better, Kenya less expensive
Our opinion is that Tanzania is the better safari destination of the two, considering
wildlife, scenery, park sizes, travel distances, safari concept, and safari and wilderness
atmosphere. Kenya has the advantage of lower prices (tours to Kenya cost roughly 10 %
less than those to Tanzania).
Both countries have good safari parks. Visiting the parks below, you are certain to
se a lot of wildlife.
