Football Tours to Kenya
Football is the number one sport in Kenya in terms of participation and popularity. Whatever the age group and whatever the standard Kenya has football teams in every corner of the country that play and train throughout the year. Junior and Prep School age groups, Senior School and University sides, Club and Representative teams, all are ready and willing to provide fixtures against visiting teams from overseas and the stiff challenge that is required and demanded by touring teams.
Nairobi, Nakuru in the Rift Valley and Mombasa on the beautiful Kenya Coast each possess teams in the above categories thus offering an ideal itinerary balance by providing touring teams with the best of the Kenyan countryside and the best of Kenyan football.

When to visit Kenya?
Kenya can be visited all year round for a football tour. The best animal viewing is in dry seasons which are generally from mid-June to October, and from late-December to mid-March.
“Kenya is the ultimate touring destination for any group that wants to not just test their sporting prowess but doing so whilst also witnessing unparalleled geographical beauty, immense cultural and social diversity and incomparable learning opportunities everywhere you look and turn; Kenya is simply the best classroom in the world.”
Patrick Foster, MSG Tours.
