Remembering a Kenyan Safari.

A kenyan safari is somewhat the most sought after travel experience in east africa. Right from the sandy beaches of Mombasa to the peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the swampy areas of the Amboseli to the sights of the Great Wildebeest Migration.

The Eighth Wonder of the world!

The wildebeest migration is a spectacle that has been discussed around the world. An annual sight that people from around the globe come to witness every year from July to October. This migration has also been added to other kenyan safari elements to make trips more thrilling! Mother nature just keeps us smiling day by day…

You can be able to see the wildebeest migration by having a tailor made safari planned for you! 

But what about those folks who cant keep coming back to Kenya? Is there something you can take with you that can constantly remind you of the amazing kenyan safari you had? Here is a list of a few things that you can carry home from a kenyan safari;

Kenyan Safari Souvenirs,

masai clothing

Masai is basically a community that lives in Kenya, Masai Mara. Their culture is what strengthens Kenya’s touristic image. They are famous for their cultural dances, their dress code and their amazing beadwork! The Masai people are friendly and are so excited to receive you as a guest when you visit one of their villages. During a visit to a Masai Village you will not only be received by the Masai people, but you will also get to be entertained by their wonderful cultural dances!

 

woodcarvings

Artisans within communities in Kenya come up with fantastic wood carvings! Those passionate in wood work can tell the beauty in the detail that good wood carvings behold. Wood carvings can be in the shape of the big five animals; lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and the rhino. They can also be in the shape of human figures within a community, like the Masai People.

The colorful nature of beads put together to form either a bangle, neclace or any form of decoration is excuisite! Kenyan beadwork involves mostly a masai themed design which can be tailor made to fit your liking. Beads can be kept as a souvenir because they are cheap and easy to carry. The products of good beadwork can also be used as gifts for your loved ones back home.

 

Hand made items are unique. A visit to Kenya will give you a chance to buy one for you to keep or give to one of your friends back home. There are different designs of handmade bags which are according to a culture, like the Masai or the Samburu people. Other designs may be a plain color of choice but with a uniqueness in craft design. Its all out there for you to choose!

 

kenyan coffee

This is my personal favorite! I love good Kenyan coffee. Kenya is known for her coffee. So why not take some back with you after a Kenyan safari? For those who have never known that we Kenyans produce coffee, i guess, now you know. And its not just any coffee, good Arabica coffee that is sought after by people from all over the world for its intense flavor.

  • Artefacts

Kenyan artefacts are basically a show of culture and history. Historical events in Kenya are marked by different kinds of artefacts. Some include; sculptures of the kenyan flag and shield. These artefacts are what promotes kenyas culture to the international community and partly is a source of income for the artisans who make them.

Other artefacts include vases, pots, carvings and even decorations that have been largely placed in museums in Kenya. For you to find these artefacts, you would need to book a comprehensive historical excursion with us!

 

Leather Products.leather bag

Leather is expensive! Not going to lie about it. The amount of work that is put into coming up with a finished leather product speaks mountains of the value of the product… which is great. Having a leather product as a souvenir would give you a higher chance of being in tough with a more valued kenyan product. Some of the leather products that you can take home as a souvenir include; bags, shoes and even leather jackets!

Kenya is a wonderful place, i live in Kenya and its great! Visit my country from time to time not just for the amazing beaches and wildlife, but also the amazing opportunity that you get to explore a unique culture in a different part of the world. Grab a souvenir while you are at it…and check out some of these nice designs!
