Digital Nomads on an African safari

Kenya is one of the most diverse countries in the world, with 42 official tribes & over 50 national parks & reserves, from the slopes of Mt Kenya to the white sand beaches on the coast, passing through lakes, the dry grassland savannah, the pristine wilderness, the bubbly city life in Nairobi, picturesque landscapes and one of the most spectacular natural events: the thrilling display of the Great Migration in the Maasai Mara, over 2 million zebra & wildebeest move from the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania to enjoy the lush green grasses in Kenya. The biggest display of free-roaming wildlife in the world! All of these are just but some of the experiences one can have in this ever-mesmerizing country.

Where should Digital Nomads go and get inspired?

Kiwayu is simply heaven on earth. An 8 km stretch of pristine beach on the ocean side and the quiet tranquil bay on the mangrove channels.

1.5 hr speedboat from our homes in Lamu Island through the most magnificent landscapes, at the end of the archipelago where we find the Kiunga Marine Reserve. Great for snorkelling and other sports but also to unplug and connect with yourself.

Where to find inspiration as a Digital Nomad?

Feelings of the coastal wilderness will make this one of your fav spots to visit and maybe revisit as you are here! Starting at about 400 USD pp depending on the group size for a 3-night stay on full board basis. If looking for an off-the-grid experience this is it!

The epitome of the safaris, home to one of the most distinctive tribes in the country living amongst the big 5 (elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard & rhino) in the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

About a 3 - 4 hour flight (with a layover in Nairobi) or a flight to Nairobi and a 6 hour drive will get you to this 1510 sq km savannah.

Over 95 species of mammals and 570 recorded different birds roaming across the Maasai Mara traversing to the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania, these both wildlife reserves boast incredible wildlife sightings in the world. Starting at about 400 USD per day on the most budget option and would vary considerably if you prefer a more luxurious experience, fly-in safari? We can also organize! Most safari camps also have wifi, so you do not need to think of a complete disconnection, but we do recommend it!

Is Nairobi a good place for Digital Nomads?

Buzzling and busy, that is how life is in the capital city of Kenya. Nairobi is one of the most fun cities that Africa can offer. Live music, parties till sunrise, plenty of markets with local articrafts, a wide display of what this country can offer.

The world's only wildlife capital holding a National Park within. The backdrop scrapers of the city mixed with the acacia trees of the park makes it a really unique safari experience very easily accessible.

Nairobi for Digital Nomads

Top-notch restaurants, great cocktails and a cosmopolitan lifestyle. A good break from the laid-back beach life. We promise you will be missing the coastal life as soon as you leave. Just 1.5 hour flight from the island, great for a weekend get-away, feel like out of Africa at Karen Blixen museum, visit the elephant orphanage and the giraffe centre, go shopping for some of the most amazing Kenyan brands & designs, finish the day at Geco Cafe the best live music!

Within the Great Rift Valley we find Lake Naivasha, famous for the beautiful views, its boat and walking safaris. Great for adventure sports, hiking Mt. Longonot, biking through hell's gate, or have a relaxed day in crater lake game sanctuary.

Easily accessible from Nairobi can be a day trip from the city or stay a few nights to experience the different game reserves along this area.

A 1.5-hour flight to Nairobi city and 2 hour road transfer from Nairobi, can also be combined with your safaris en route to Maasai Mara. We do think that a 2 / 3 night stay around this area is great to experience it. Explore the lake region - around 7 different lakes can be visited here - and the varied bird life of this area!
