Hockey Tours to Kenya
Kenya has a proud hockey history and once boasted a men’s team that was ranked fourth in the world competing in the Mexico and Munich Olympics.
At international level, the team is no longer at such dizzying heights but at school and club level the game is in good shape and is highly competitive.
There is also a regular social and mixed hockey scene and as with all other sports, a tour to Kenya can provide evenly matched competitive hockey with an itinerary that will take in the safari and beach highlights that have made Kenya famous.

When to visit Kenya?
Kenya can be visited all year round for a hockey 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.”
