Best Travel and Holiday Destination Apps in Kenya


It’s about that time when many Kenyans want to travel to some attractive places across the country. Be it the Coast, or the great resorts across the Rift Valley or the various parks in the Southern parts, it’s clear that Kenya has a lot to offer for local and international tourists. But with so many choices, comes a difficulty to really be able to choose the place you want to spend your holiday season at. Thankfully, modern tech has helped out with that as you can find some really helpful apps and sites that help you choose that right out.

Most of them are designed to easily compare the various destinations based on charges incurred and the benefits that they offer for their esteemed visitors. So, here are some of the apps that you would find as the best for you in case you are looking for the best place to visit in the country.


This list might not come in order of preference but the TripAdvisor could very well be among the best apps that you can use for your travel. This is all thanks to the huge list of restaurants, hotels, tourist destinations and fun activities listed on it. The app also gives users the chance to review all these places so that new users can get to know how others have experienced the different places. As it stands, the app holds over 700 million reviews from destinations across the world. Obviously, the more negative the reviews, the less likely the place will look attractive to anyone wanting to visit.

It is freely available on iOS and Google Play Store.

By the name alone, you can tell that the app is centred around exploring the safari gems within the country’s borders. The platform is surprisingly well detailed offering ideas on where to go and what to do once you get there. Using it does feel personalised as it only gives you places across the country. But also gives some really good knowledge about the various local facilities. The app helps you with:

  • Planning your trip: This gives your ideas on where to go and what to see or do.
  • Connects you with local facilities: This app works in conjunction with the location features on your phone to connect you to the local hotels, restaurants and other useful businesses.
  • Sharing: You can even create a souvenir video to share with your friends and family on your social media pages.

This is probably one of the most underrated go-to sites for anyone that is looking to travel avidly. The app lets you search and compare various destinations and their rates. You also get to conveniently book hotels/resorts all from your phone.


A house with an extra room can make you money. This app gives you the chance to list a space in your home where thousands of users can see and rent.
Besides, if you are travelling and would love to find the best prices, Airbnb is an online marketplace and will have you sorted out your needs.

There are definitely apps like Kayak, Skyscanner and Hopper among more that you can check out if you’re looking for that travel app that suits you ideally.
