Kenya Cultural Safaris with Six Days Cultural Tours

Kenya Cultural Safaris with Six Days Cultural Tours

Kenya Cultural Safari includes a culture born of various sources. Africa is an immensely rich and culturally diverse continent. Whilst each region offers its very own individual peculiarity, we find the countries that form the region all offer again a very diverse culture. The East African Experience is definitely an artistically tailored made journey that enables us to immerse in this richness and to understand a region of Africa that’s so little known of particularly Kenya when experiencing the masai and luo along lake Victoria cultures.

Kenya Cultural Safaris

Kenya includes a culture born of various sources. This region continues to be crossed by the paths of the long and complex history. From the prehistoric records of early man to the current day, Kenya has been a land of unending change, contrasts and diversity. The tribes of Kenya are as diverse as it is country and many people still practice a traditional lifestyle, even amidst the modernity of urban Kenya. It’s not uncommon to hear five or six differnet native Kenyan languages while you walk down the streets of Nairobi. With lots of years experience dealing with the Samburu, The Laikipia Masai, The Pokot and The Turkana we have made many friends in these traditional communities. On our trips you will simply meet real people living real lives. Quite often, we travel to these communities in order to understand a skill or craft, like making beadwork, identifying medicinal plants, or tracking animals. In other cases we are simply visitors and based on the situation and the tribe, we might be allowed to take photographs. Mostly, we’ll travel with a lightweight mobile camp that’s easy to pack and move and these safaris can be simply combined with game viewing and a vacation to the coast. Below is one in our itinerary samples, you are able to book for it or e mail us for more details, price or customized itinerary:

  1. Have been on 3 trips with Friendly Planet and would recommend them to anyone. We especially enjoyed Kenya and also have been there 3 times. It is magical and when you have been that is the only holiday for you. Excellent food, top class lodgings , fantastic scenery like no where else on the planet, and a sense of adventure which i have never felt on any one of our travels. It beat China, Thailand and all sorts of other countries that we have visited. You will not regret the trip.
