Timing is everything: When to start planning your Kenyan getaway for the best experience

If you’re planning a safari, you know that it can be a complex and time-consuming process. From selecting the perfect destination and itinerary, to coordinating transportation and accommodation, there are many moving parts that need to be carefully considered and planned. And, if you’re planning to travel during peak season, as our recent client did, starting your planning process as early as possible can make all the difference in ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience.


Our recent client, who recently wrapped up a new year safari with us, began planning their trip in February 2022. This early start allowed us at Akara Expeditions to carefully plan and organize every detail of the trip, ensuring that their safari was a memorable and rewarding experience. By starting the planning process well in advance, our client was also able to prepare in terms of saving money and clearing their schedules, which can be a significant advantage when it comes to taking a trip of a lifetime.

Traveling to a faraway destination, such as Kenya for a safari, can be a significant investment and taking the time to plan ahead can give you peace of mind and make the most of your trip. It’s important to research options and make the necessary arrangements, such as accommodation and transportation, as early as possible. You should also take into account the best time to travel in terms of both weather and availability, which can impact your itinerary and your budget.

In conclusion, starting your planning process early can be the key to a successful and enjoyable safari experience. By giving yourself plenty of time to research, plan, and prepare, you’ll be able to make informed decisions and avoid last-minute stress and complications. With Akara Expeditions, our experienced team can help guide you through the planning process and ensure that your safari is tailored to your specific needs and preferences. So, if you’re thinking of planning a safari, don’t wait! Start planning early and give yourself the best chance of having a trip of a lifetime.
