Best Hotels in Kenya
Hotels vary enormously in price and facilities, and the one to ﬁve star hotels rating given by the Ministry of Tourism is not an accurate basis of comparison. Better to inquire at a local travel agent or book through one of the larger hotel chains. Luxury hotels in Kenya offer excellent standards of service and are comparable to the best hotels anywhere in the world.
Cheap Hotels in Kenya
First and second class hotels vary widely in service and facilities but are generally comfortable, with private bathrooms and European style food. Small rural hotels (hoteli) will offer extremely basic accommodation and are not recommended to visitors for a number of reasons ranging from security to hygiene.
Lodges in Kenya
Lodges in Kenya are located in the national parks and reserves and are, of necessity, limited; they are also usually expensive. The food and facilities, however, are generally of the highest standard.
Tented Camps in Kenya
Comprising a small selection of permanently sited canvas tents, which are roofed, pitched on a concrete base or raised wooden platform, and often with a bathroom to the rear, tented camps have little to do with the vacations under canvas that visitors might have experienced. Most offer a surprising degree of luxury, with ﬂush toilets, hot and cold running water, and electricity.
Self-catering Accommodation in Kenya
Economically priced self-catering bandas (simple chalets) are available in many game parks and range from simple rondavels to the houses that the wardens used to live in. Usually delightfully situated, they offer cooking facilities (which can range from a propane gas stove to a campﬁre) and varying standards of bed/bath facilities. A wide range of privately owned self-catering villas, houses, and beach cottages are also available
Private Home Stays in Kenya
These offer the chance of staying in a (usually white) Kenyan household, many of which are colonial-style farms in beautiful settings. The downside (for some) is that you will probably be expected to eat with your hosts, who may or may not regale you with safari tales. Prices vary greatly.
Camps in Kenya
There are more than two hundred ofﬁcial campsites in wilderness areas throughout the country, many in the national parks. Facilities vary. “Special Campsites” are booked exclusively in advance; otherwise you pay as you go. Beware: leaving your camp unattended is not recommended, not least because Kenyan baboons have learned how to operate zips.
