Accommodation in Kenya

Flag of Kenya


Many of the hotels in Nairobi are very good, offer high international standards. Cheaper, budget hotels are also available. There are smaller hotels, almost in every town. Only the larger ones will accept credit cards, otherwise payment has to be made in cash (shillings, US dollars)

Safari Lodges

Most popular type of accommodation in Kenya's national parks are luxurious lodges and luxury tented camps. They are often situated in beautiful surroundings, with wild animals moving freely on the grounds or trees (fences protect from the bigger, more dangerous animals). Some lodges have swimming pools and standards comparable to a 5-star resort. Safari lodges take credit cards or cash.

Recently self-catering cabins have become available for safari lovers. These are privately owned country bush homes, mostly in tourist locations.


Camping should be considered only at formal campsites that can provide security and basic facilities. Camping in remote locations can be dangerous, due to wild animals and exposure to robbery.
