There’s no doubt about it – one of the top dream travel experiences for people around the world is going on an African safari. Global Basecamps make this dream come true for many clients every year, and client testimonials confirm that the days on the savannahs are often the most memorable of our travelers’ lives! Being well prepared with the right general safari packing list, as well as the “must have” top items, is critical in helping things go as smoothly as possible.

Kenya is a land of vast diversity: in landscapes, in biodiversity, and in people. With a population of nearly 50 million, all three major people groups of the African continent (Cushite, Nilotic, and Bantu) are represented in this country, rich in culture. A high percentage of Kenya’s citizen’s are able to be classified as “indigenous”, meaning they are the original inhabitants of a given region for an extended period of time that precedes the modern arrival of outside colonial population. Travelers in Kenya will have the opportunity to offer their respect and curiosity to these special minority groups, and learn from their traditional wisdom.
