Budget Travel Ideas in Kenya

Edit This
The following Kenya budget travel guide will help you save money while enjoying a great holiday in this beautiful country.

Traveling

For tourists who are looking to save some money on traveling within Kenya, road travel is probably the best option. The best budget traveling option in the country is definitely a bus. You can find regular bus services in and around cities. They seat up to 30 passengers and are reliable and fairly clean. However, ensure that you travel during the day and pick a reliable coach company if you plan on traveling long distances in buses. Tourists who are looking for a budget-friendly yet faster way to travel in the country can opt for flying with Fly540, a low cost airline. Kenya also has a rail network, but it is very slow and is considered to be risky for foreigners.

Accommodation

One of the best things about accommodation in Kenya is that it can suit tourists with any budget. Every city in the country has a number of cheap hotels that offer basic facilities for a comfortable stay. Bermuda Hotel, Meridian Court Hotel and Ngara Youth Hostel are some of the popular budget hotels in Nairobi. Mtwapa Creek Villa and The Beach- Bar Restaurant and Camp Lodge are 2 popular budget friendly hotels in Mombasa that offer good facilities at low rates. If you are visiting Lamu, Shella Sea Breeze and Lamu- Island Villa are 2 hotels that are great for tourists with a tight budget.

Attractions

Kenyan beaches are among the top attractions in the country. Soft white sand and rich blue water awaits tourists at all the beaches along the country’s coast line. Beaches in Malindi, Lamu and Mombasa are ideal for relaxing and sunbathing. Tourists that are looking for a more interesting way to spend their time here can take a trip to the Gedi ruins, which are close to Watamu and Malindi. This Swahili settlement was founded in the 12th century and consists of a mosque, palace and houses. Tourists staying in Mombasa can also visit the attractions on the beach road that is to the north of the city. These include the Ngomongo Villages and Bamburi Quarry Nature Trail.

Eating

There are a number of restaurants in Kenya that offer good food at affordable prices. An ideal way to save on eating is by dining in local restaurants. These offer authentic Kenyan dishes at reasonable rates. K’osewe’s in Nairobi is one of the best restaurants that offer traditional Kenyan food. There are many other restaurants that serve international cuisines like Italian, Thai, Lebanese and French food at reasonable rates. Avoid eating out in restaurants inside major hotels to save money. Drinking Kenya’s local beers, Tusker Lager and White Cap Lager is a good way to save on your alcohol purchases as imported beers are quite expensive.
