Karibu Kenya is a personal travel service offering bespoke holidays in Kenya.
Karibu Kenya is the creation of Tamara Britten. For two years, Tamara drove all over Kenya, inspecting hotels and camps, driving around safari parks and conservancies, visiting beaches and islands, trying out activities and adventure sports. Tamara used her in-depth knowledge of Kenya first to write the Karibu Kenya Accommodation Guide – endorsed by the Kenya Tourist Board – then to establish the Karibu Kenya booking service. Now a recognised expert on Kenya, Tamara continues to travel, writing features for inflight magazines and other travel publications – and keeping the Karibu Kenya website scrupulously up to date.
One member of Karibu Kenya’s team of knowledgeable travel consultants is assigned to each enquiry. He or she responds to that enquiry personally and works with the client throughout the booking process, discussing the client’s preferences and wishes, giving current rates and availability, informing them about relevant flights, transfers and activities, and letting them know about current special offers. When the client is happy with every part of their holiday, the consultant books the whole package – and remains on hand to oversee the whole trip while the client is in Kenya ensuring the holiday runs seamlessly.
Karibu Kenya believes strongly in preserving the environment. Partner Gamewatchers Safaris initiated the conservancy concept and led the way in establishing conservancies around Kenya, substantially extending wildlife areas to the benefit of the wildlife and the local communities. Believing that collaboration between tourism and conservation is vital, Karibu Kenya and Gamewatchers Safaris work with hotels, resorts, airlines and other tourism operators who actively implement eco-policies and sustainable tourism practises.
The latest additions to the Karibu Kenya website include a page called Travel with Tamara, in which Tamara shares her latest discoveries from around the country. Writing not only about the newest developments in the tourism world, Tamara shares stories on myths and legends, arts events, sports challenges, cultural festivals and more. Working in tandem with Karibu Kenya’s popular sightings page, this new page keeps visitors to the website abreast of the most recent happenings as well as upcoming events in Kenya. The second new addition to the website is the yoga page. Featuring Kenya’s top yoga teachers, the site details and books yoga retreats and workshops around the country. Kenya has a large number of exceptional yoga teachers, all offering different styles of yoga and exciting yoga events in exotic destinations; Karibu Kenya is the first website to draw them together and handle bookings cohesively.
Karibu Kenya has recently launched a sister bookings service for Ethiopia. Offering the same high-quality personal service, Exclusive Ethiopia offers holidays in all regions of this diverse country. While Ethiopia is best known for the extraordinary ancient rock-hewn churches found in the north, there are fascinating sites all over the country. The Danakil Depression has multicoloured bubbling sulphur springs and gleaming white salt lakes; Erta Ale Volcano is an active volcano throwing liquid lava high into the sky; Gondar is known as the Camelot of Africa for its array of historic castles; Omo Valley is populated with tribes whose traditions and customs have changed little through the centuries; Bale Mountain National Park has one of the last remaining populations of Ethiopian wolves; and the Simien Mountains offer some of the highest peaks in Africa.
Both Karibu Kenya and Exclusive Ethiopia are keenly eco-friendly, keep up to date with new developments, verify by visiting, and are dedicated to ensuring their clients get the exact holiday that suits them.
