Safari trips to Kenya have emerged as a very popular holiday choice for tourists round the world. It combines excitement, adventure, history, education and culture with something for travelers of every age and interest. While planning one of these trips, depending on your holiday needs and budget, a good option to consider is safari lodges. Here the safari-guide escorts you between different lodges with game-viewing in each place.
Kenya safari lodges are generally located within easy distance of the game reserve, often within the reserve park itself, and this enhances your wildlife viewing experience, while giving you a once-in-a-lifetime experience of the savannah at nighttime. The lodges are usually built in clusters, with traditional building materials available in the region. Lodges in the Masai Mara area may be in the round tribal hut style, with thatched roof and wooden paneling inside to keep out the cold night air. The property may include a club-house, bar, activity area or swimming pool as well as restaurants and souvenir shops. You can also avail of services like laundry, bed turn-down service and in-house experts in wildlife or bird watching.
In other regions like Lake Naivasha, with its tragic historical associations to the slave trade, tourists can find luxurious lodges situated among the unique botanical environment of the region which comprises both lush vegetation and dry land plants like cacti. Some safari service providers have properties here with lodges constructed in the typical African rondavel – the traditional hut style – with plenty of space for large groups. In the famous Amboseli National Park region with the magnificent Mt Kilimanjaro overlooking it, you can book a lodge with literary associations to the legendary writer Ernest Hemingway who spent time here in the early part of the 20th century.
Another attractive option, with historical associations is a rustic lodge in the Aberdares National Park, where the future British Queen stayed on her honeymoon. Set in the elephant migration corridor, this lodge has a unique feature – an alarm that alerts wildlife enthusiasts whenever animals come down to the nearby watering hole. A similar lodge can be found in the wildebeest and zebra migration path in the Masai Mara which is also kids-friendly and has some great leisure features like poolside dining, bar, cultural trips to Masai villages and souvenir shops.
Other options for safari lodge accommodation in the Masai Mara region include one of the oldest lodges in the region, built of local stone, with one-of-a-kind entertainment like Masai warrior dance programs and a taste of world-famous aromatic coffee grown in the Kenyan highlands.
If you’re planning a Kenya safari holiday, the unique safari lodges are a great accommodation option.
