Kenya, home of safaris, Is it?

Is it lack of disposable income, lack of interest, or maybe lack of interesting destinations in Kenya? or simply not having the right kind of travel gear.  Most people I think may not be sure of what kind of activities to engage in, others may say that tourism may not necessarily be for leisure purposes but for business purposes, which is kind of a forced tourism I say.

Not that many indigenous people in Kenya engage in Safaris for leisure though, but thank God for the few who do. Kenya is a beautiful country, if you have not been in this country, then you have has not seen it all, and luxury definitely is not your middle name. From the Kenya national parks to the exciting wilderness safaris, the greenness and nature of the land is amazing, Kenya has got a lot going for it. It’s amazing how much of a beautiful country we have, yet very few take advantage of this.

    I would appreciate many such personalized and wonderful information about Kenya at your blogs violetachieng as we really need it before the summer vacation.

    Thanks for every bit of information that you have given us and that you will give us.


  2. Hi, thanks for your comment and interest in Sandstorm bags.

    The prices are cheaper here in Kenya than whats on the website due to shipping expenses. However, if you let us know when you will be coming for holiday, we can arrange delivery of the bags to your hotel. You can make payments beforehand via credit card and since we will not be shipping the bags, we will charge you as per our Kenyan prices.
