I am Sharon Lumbasi, a travel blogger, travel planner and Youtuber. Shaz on the move is a travel blog to help plan your trip to and around Kenya with confidence and gives you ideas and inspiration for travel.

I have always loved travelling. I love that I have a platform to showcase Kenya in both text and video. I have travelled to many parts of Kenya and have had such amazing experiences. When I started writing articles for Kenya, I got another amazing opportunity to travel around Kenya with a group of people.

Over time I discovered that there are other Kenyans and international tourists alike who are looking for more information about travelling to Kenya. There are some areas in Kenya that are not as explored as others. These have come to be my most popular articles. These articles are: Staying at Mbita Hotel, 7-day road trip itinerary to Turkana, Road trip guide to Rusinga Island just to name a few.

I got the inspiration to write more destination guides and hotel reviews and experiences about Kenya. These articles are to assist people travelling as groups, romantic getaways and first-time travelers to Kenya. In addition, anyone who wants to learn more about Kenya.

Early Planning for Kenya

Itinerary Planning for Kenya

Itinerary planning for any trip can be a challenge. Every destination has the best time to visit and this is mostly affected by the weather conditions in the area. The travel guides to each destination provide you with up-to-date information on the best time to visit. I have itinerary options for Nairobi and Turkana. These will help you decide where to go and where to stay

Package Tour Options for Kenya

Multi day package tours to Kenya are a very good option if you prefer to let someone else make all your travel arrangements rather than spending time and effort to plan for your trip. They are also an option for any solo traveler

Quite a few of our readers are interested in booking multi day package tours to Kenya – these can be a great option if you prefer to let someone else make all of your arrangements rather than having to invest a lot of your own time and effort to arrange your trip.  They are also a great option for solo travellers to meet like minded people and have companionship as they travel.

Visiting and Climbing Mt Kenya

Many visitors both local and international are always keen to visit and climb Mt. Kenya- as a result, I have put a guide to Mt. Kenya which includes information that helps you plan your climb and your overall trip.

You realize that you can also do day hikes while in Mt. Kenya and you do not necessarily have to climb the mountain peaks. In the guide, there is detailed information on how to plan day trips while in Mt. Kenya.

Visiting the Home of Elephants at Amboseli National Park

Another very popular activity for visitors is touring Amboseli National Park. Amboseli is popular with visitors because of its close proximity to Nairobi. It is about a 4 hour drive from the capital city. It is near the border of Kenya and Tanzania and hence gives you majestic views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and to add to this beautiful view of Africa’s tallest mountain is that the park is home to thousands of elephant families.

Another popular national park to visit is Amboseli National Park also known as the home of elephants. I have a detailed guide on Amboseli National Park, A room tour of one of the best Lodges in Amboseli National Park called Ol Tukai Lodge and a video guide to Amboseli National Park

Another common question is recommendations on places to stay in various destinations in Kenya. I have a playlist of Top 10 recommended hotels in various parts of Kenya. These videos will help you determine where to stay. Before you book check out various hotel experiences here.  These articles also have links to help you book accommodation through Kayak.com
