Remember to tip

Many communities in Kenya rely on the tourism industry and you can do your bit by tipping your guides, waiters, drivers, chefs and hotel staff at least 10% of the bill.

Dress modestly

Kenya is a conservative country, so make sure you cover your legs and upper arms. Our tip? Buy a kanga, a local sarong which can be wrapped around for extra modesty or used as a towel or scarf.

Respect the wildlife

A safari game drive in Kenya may be one of the most exciting experiences of your life, but it’s important to follow the rules, ever ask your guide to leave the trails, and never use flash photography around animals.
