5 Top secrets of the Kenyan Traveler.
Did you know there is a complete difference between a traveler and a tourist. Who do you think you are?
A tourist consumes experiences;like the once offered at Cloud9xp and moves on. A traveler interacts with the local culture. The literally blend in rather than stand out. This is only acceptable in travel .☺️
Stay tuned for the contrast between this two seemingly similar but extremely different lifestyles.
- It is in the planning.
A wise philosopher Lao Tzu once said, ” A good traveler has no good plans and is not intent on arriving.” This simply means, having a fixed destination is not the secret to being a the ultimate traveler, it is the spontaneity. Say you wanted to visit the Fort Jesus in Mombasa, there are a variety of historic sites and leisure destination before or after you predestined destination. It is so much fun. I promise.
2. Timing is Everything.
You want to see the wildebeest crossing the Mara, there is a time for that: July to November, the flamingos at Lake Nakuru or the tidal waves in the coastal region. Time is important when planning your travel. Our Blog post will keep you upbeat on everything travel and perfect timings. We got you.
3. Travel advisories
According to recent travel advisory by The Kenya Travel Advisory Board, travelers were asked to exercise increased caution while travelling to travel Kenyan border areas with Somalia, South Sudan and Ethiopia, including coastal areas, due to regional instability and kidnapping. It is also crucial that Independent travelers should seek the latest advice.
4. Loss the Dead weight
Are you guilty of over-packing? While travelling you need as little baggage as humanly possible. We would recommend packing toiletries and necessary documentation. The rest could be thrifted while on the move. Imagine having to carry two large heavy suitcase from destination to destination, chances of not maximizing your travel potential is 100%
5. Build experience locally, show off internationally.
They say a prophet is not welcomed in his home town. Hold on, before you roll your eyes, this is not about religion. According to a research conducted by an Independent Research farm on Kenyans travel preference, 60% of the respondents stated that they prefer travelling overseas as opposed to being a domestic traveler.
We are the changing the narrative. Kenya is extremely beautiful. People are crossing several continents just to see a gazelle, the African Lion and even the black panther. Start home. Picture this, having visited all destinations in Kenya, carry our culture to your preferred destination say Dubai or Greece.
People will notice that beaded chain on your neck, that Masai shuka, the Kenyan bracelet and they in turn will want to visit and acquire them. How great will it feel having wazungus compliment that shambala?You will be doing your patriotic duty. Thank you.
