It’s not a Dream. It’s Kenya
– Petka Coner –
The past years have been challenging. Life has not been easy for anyone. Events we could not influence slapped us from all sides. No matter which side of the world you were; under a palm tree, in a mountain, in a city, in your yard, we lived challenging times. And survived. I believe maybe we have learned something.
And that is why I would like to say to those years behind us :”Thank you for all the lessons and experience. Now that you have done whatever your task or mission was, go ! Thanks and goodbye. We endured. We are still here. And more than ever eager and ready to embrace new experiences, new knowledge, explore the world and distant cultures, create new memories and unforgettable days. It’s time to move on .

Arriving visitors are requested to avoid bringing plastic bags into the country. The ban applies to the use, manufacture and importation of the banned plastics within Kenya.

However, any traveler coming into Kenya with duty free bags shall be required to leave the same at the entry points. Using the banned bags carries a fine of more than $500 or a jail term of up to a year.
Tips for packing without plastic
Of the alternatives to plastic packaging, organic packaging is one of the best. Organic packaging means that all components of the packaging are made of natural materials and can be composted without harming the environment.
NO SINGLE-USE PLASTIC PRODUCTS IN PROTECTED AREAS

The Best Alternative To Plastic Bottles are Glass reusable bottle and you can also recycle it after using it many times its quality doesn’t get affected in any way. Stainless steel/Aluminium Reusable bottle is another alternative to a plastic water bottle which is also reusable. Ceramic Water bottles etc… Don’t forger to take your bottle and enjoy fantastic nature, amazing wildlife and clean environment.
Kindly, RESPECT THE PARK RULES AND THE WILDLIFE ! Wildlife surrounded by vehicles is unpleasant and causes great distress. Cheetahs hunt only during the day and can easily be deprived of their meal if surrounded by vehicles. Please be quiet when viewing: ask the driver to switch off the engine and keep a minimum distance of 20 metres. Do not, under any circumstances, get out of your vehicle. Many animals will become aggressive when harassed or provoked. In addition, adhere to instructions from your nature guide while on a nature walk.
And that’s it !
You are ready to take off !
