Safari and Saltlick - By Samantha Owen-Stoddart
Tipping in Kenya
During my time in Kenya I went on a two day safari to the Tsavo East National Park, enjoying the sights and sounds of the park’ animals. They included the elephant, leopard, lion, Impala and giraffe to name but a few. Tsavo East National Park is one of the oldest and largest parks in Kenya, opened in April 1948 and is 13,747 square kilometres in size. The location of the park is an area formally called the Taru Desert, next to the town of Voi, in Taita-Taveta County. The Tsavo National Park is split into two sections Tsavo East and West, separated by the A109 road and a railway. Its name came from the river Tsavo, which flows west to east through the national park.
Kenya is one of the most visited countries in the continent of Africa. With its beautiful Indian-Ocean coastline, lakes, savannah grasslands, valleys and highlands it has a lot to offer tourists. Not to mention its bustling capital city, Nairobi. Its climate and exotic wildlife means there is a big market for tourism across the country with locals offering a great insight into their country.
