Top 10 Local Tours & Travel Companies in Kenya 2018

List of Top Ten Best Local Tour and Travel Companies in Kenya

There are many local tours and travel companies in Kenya. It is therefore entirely difficult to come up with a list of only Ten. If you searched the term “Tour & Travel Kenya” on Facebook today, you will get thousands of results.

You will get tours ranging from hiking activities in Kenya, trekking and nature walk, zip lining, game drives in National Parks, climbing Mount Kenya tours, Road trips in East Africa, cycling to sky-diving in Kenya.

Many Kenyans have ventured into the business both for local and international packages since the capital required to get started is minimal.

The industry got disrupted a few years ago and the early adopters of technology like Bonfire adventures reaped big and continue to get a lot of customers.

However, with the increased number of “Tour Companies”, it is quite hard for tourists, adventurers, and travelers to decide on a good company for local tours and travels.
