When you go to stay for a vacation or business in Kenya, the most important thing is to stay in a safe and comfortable place. In Kenya, there are a number of hotels to stay especially in Nairobi. You can stay in backpackers’ campsites or five star establishments such as the Norfolk Hotel. Then there are private guesthouses offering private rooms with shared toilet facilities or self contained rooms.  These cost between 1,000/= to 4,000/= per night.

If you are a person who does not mind basic accommodation you can get a room for $ 100 US per night in a hotel or hostel. Where there are less tourists, rooms can be obtained very cheap at $ 5 US per night. If you plan to travel very cheaply, you have to take your own bed sheet and an insecticide to spray on bed bugs. In downtown urban areas, small boarding and lodging can be very cheap but they are rarely safe as these are located in high crime areas.

Then there are homestays which are very popular because you can experience the Kenyan culture in a deeper and more meaningful way. These homestays charge about $ 20 US per night inclusive of meals and some include the laundry as well.

Those who wish to stay longer will rent accommodation. Prices are higher than cheap accommodation and it may be from $ 150 US for international style and if you arrange privately, prices range from $ 50 US to $ 100 US with local style accommodation. There is accommodation for KSH 5 – 7000 per month with widows, water, and electricity and for KSH 500 per month with no windows, no electricity, loud neighbors, mosquitoes and shared access to the tap. If you want private rented accommodation, you will have to ask from cab drivers, shopkeepers, market traders, etc.

There are a 300,000 acres of communal Massai owned land which is part of the Amboseli eco – system. There are cottages built with local material with spectacular views of Kilimanjaro. All these cottages have a bathroom with solar generated electricity and water.
