Backpacking in Kenya

Jump to last reply

I'll be volunteering (teaching) in Maasailand for 9 weeks with weekends free to travel/explore and then i'll be backpacking across Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda for 3 weeks afterwards. I was wondering if anyone could point me toward any good websites/books regarding backpacking in East Africa (i've already checked out www.travelindependent.info and I'm going today/tomorrow to check out "East & Southern Africa: The Backpacker's Manual" buy phillip briggs which hopefully will help clear things up...but if you have any PERSONAL EXPERIENCE BACKPACKING IN E. AFRICA, I'D LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT IT!!!).

I have some generic questions, like is it better to bring a tent and camp or to find a cheap hotel? (i looked at LP's guide to E. Africa and hotels were like $3-4, which i could afford. I didn't know if it's easier when in a nat'l park to camp or to find a cheap hotel...i'd rather not have a tent for weights' sake in my backpack).

What were the coolest things you guys have done in E. Africa
On a tight budget i still want to pick a few of the coolest things to do on the weekends (while volunteering) and then on my 3 week adventure. So far, i have white-water rafting on the Nile, scuba diving (i've heard about something where you get to be with great whites...might be cool), skydiving, and bungee jumping.

btw, a 4 day safari is included in the volunteer program.

**Sorry for all the questions, i leave in 3 weeks and couldn't find specific answers after looking in the FAQ section for a bit. thanks again.**
