Safety is of the utmost importance and a priority for Bench International when sending passengers to any of its African destinations.

This is achieved by providing guests with local escorts on safaris and the continual security of an experienced Southern Cross guide who has 24-hour contact with the company’s head office so that they are fully informed at all times, avoiding any, very contained areas, that might be seen as a risk.

The company says guests will not only be safe but very well and personally looked after until they arrive safely back in Australia.

This said, here is Beach International’s top five reasons why Kenya should be on your bucket list:


1. Endless adventure


The country offers an endless array of adventure, fun and cherished memories.

You can climb a mountain, lie on a pristinely white beach, surf, and spot game both inside the game parks and out.

Kenya really does have limitless possibilities within her borders.


2. Incredible wildlife


Kenya is the home of the wildlife safari, with the opportunity not only to see the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, buffalo) but also to witness the wildebeest migration, one of the natural wonders of the world.


3. Kenyans


The wonderful people of Kenya! Kenyan people are warm, friendly and hospitable. “You will arrive as a visitor and leave as a friend”.

With over 40 different ethnic African groups, Kenya is famous for its rich and diverse cultural heritage.

This includes the Maasai tribe who has clung to their traditional way of life, making them a symbol of Kenyan culture. Tourists truly have an unrivalled cultural experience when travelling within Kenya’s borders.


4. Picturesque landscapes


The country has some of the most varying and picturesque landscapes in Africa.

From the Great Rift Valley, with all that it encompasses, the lakes, birdlife and its dramatic presence to the unrivalled views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.


5.World-class hospitality
