A country located in east Africa, Kenya is known for its incredible Safari facilities. A diverse country, Kenya is host to over 40 ethnic groups.
Mount Kenya is the second highest Africa and the country takes its name from the mountain.
Most of Kenya's tourism comes from the U.K and Germany with many guests travelling to visit the game reserves and beaches.
Kenya's national currency is the Kenyan shilling and although foreign currencies such as US Dollars are widely accepted (and indeed the currency required for activities like hot-air balloon safaris) we'd recommend using local currency pay for bar bills, souvenirs and meals not included in your itinerary.
You need a visa to enter Kenya. You can either get a visa on arrival at the airport, or before you travel. You can apply for single entry and transit visas on the Evisas website.
Please note your passport should be valid for a minimum of 6 months from the date of entry to Kenya. Make sure you have two blank pages in your passport on arrival.
Best time to travel
Generally, the best time to visit Kenya is in either the two dry seasons, from January to Marcher July to October. Given the nature of the dry season, wildlife spotting is at its best at this time.Vegetation is sparser, making distance viewing a lot easier. Plus, the animals tend to gather around waterholes as well as rivers and lakes, so finding them is also much easier.
Kenya's daytime temperatures average between 20 degrees and 28 degrees, but it is warmer on the coast. Kenyans too close to the equator to experience a real winter and summer. There is, however, both a Dry and Wet season
Child friendly rating
You're not going to find a water park that's for sure! However, the things your children will learn in this country will shape them forever. Our children were 2.5 , 3 and 6 when we took them on their first safari and they enjoyed every second of it. The hotels were more than accommodating.
Please note not all of the safaris will take children under 6 but lots do so based on this we give Kenya a 7/10 child friendly rating.
You need to take malaria tablets for 7 days prior to entry to the country through to 7 days after leaving.
A yellow fever vaccination certificates only required of travellers 1 year and above coming from (or who are in airport transit for more than 12 hours within) a country with risk of yellow fever transmission. Covid double vaccination TBC
Why did you become a travel agent?As a travel journalist holidays are my passion but unfortunately press trips are few and far between and travel is expensive. I used to book direct with hotels or on Booking.com all the time not knowing that commission was built into EVERY holiday I booked! Now I book those EXACT same holidays and get access to those exact FAM trips but I get to KEEP that commission I used to give to the holiday companies!
Are you actually a legit company?Absolutely! Our Travel Host company is 25 years old and is a proud member of ABTA! Our suppliers are ATOL protected! If we weren't legitimate then companies like TUI and James Villas wouldn’t have recently partnered up with us.
Do you have to have travel experience?NOPE! We have extensive FREE training with all our suppliers as well as constant in house company training! You can train with Disney and become a Disney specialist, a jumeriah specialist or like me a maldieves and luxury family travel specialist.
Is this a Network Marketing business like those makeup ones?Definitely not, I have worked for two NWM companies and I can certainly say this isn’t the same at all. It is totally optional if you want to be a business builder or just a Travel Agent. We have no targets, no point system ... you book a holiday... you get paid commission ... simple ❤️ There is an optional travel affiliate opportunity. But it is a completely SEPARATE business opportunity. Meaning there are other revenue streams available too.
Are you restricted to the holidays you can book?Not at all! When you join you get an IATA number which is a legal requirement to book holidays. I can contact ANY hotel worldwide and receive an agent commisisonable rate and discount!!!
Do i need a big social media following to to successful?Absolutely not. Built my whole travel agent business from booking holidays for the school mums at Jasmine's school.
What if I join and change my mind?That's fine you can cancel at anytime.
How do I join?Message the person who you are speaking to about the business or added you into this link and request a THREE way chat with me! Or simply get set up straight away. Within a few hours you could be a qualified Independent Travel Agent ✈️🌴 This really is the best business ever ... I’ve met some of the most AMAZING people! We are one community & everyone is welcome ❤️
Are there any sign up fees?Yes there’s a one off payment of £142 which is your iata licence charge. This will be a number that gives you global recognition as a travel agent. You then pay £32 a month which covers your admin, support, insurance and Back office systems. All training is totally free!
How soon can I start booking holidays ?Mandatory training is four 1 hour videos, then you will be licenced to book holidays. However there are other optional trainings we give online such as supplier training and how to approach hotels etc ... so I would say 2 evenings of study and you’ll be good to go!
I have a full time job will this work for me?Yes!!!!!! We have no targets or quotas so you can absolutely do this around a full time job.
Is it a scam???Well... that’s what I thought to be honest! ... It all sounded too good to be true! In fact I was asked 21 times before I decided it was for me. I needed every question answered and there were a lot, trust me! I’ve spent 3 years building a platform on Instagram based on reality and trust I wasn’t going to throw it away for a get rich quick fad However I can tell you now, I did my research, lots of it! I asked my questions! Hundreds of them ...it really is as good as it looks And I’m livid I didn’t jump in sooner!
