Travel Tips

Visa & Passport Information

Before you buy your air ticket to Kenya, you want to be sure that you have what you need or you will be able to get it once you arrive in Kenya. Depending on your nationality or country of origin, you may need to apply for and receive a visa before visiting Kenya. It is important that you do so immediately upon your decision to travel to Kenya, and make sure that it is not intended to expire during your travel.

Also make sure you have a current and valid passport, and that it is not about to expire. Expect that your passport could take up to six weeks to arrive, so make sure you plan well in advance for your passport needs. As a rule, your passport should expire not less than six months before the end your travel.

When making preparations for your passport, it is advisable to make several copies of the actual passport or visa (in addition to the original). This is only for your own safety, the last thing you want to do is to be out of your home country without any way to provide proof of your identity, should you lose your passport. You should leave one of the copies at home before you travel, just in case. When you travel with the original passport, always keep it locked up safely, in a hotel safe or anywhere secure.

Before you leave for Kenya make sure you have the following:

* Valid Passport
* Arrival Ticket
* Return Ticket
* Adequate Funds
* Visa (if required)


Health Advice for Kenya
Before you travel to Kenya, make sure that you are up to date on all immunizations. Although there are currently no inoculations that you must have when travelling to Kenya, if you intend to visit other countries such as Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Egypt, or other such areas that may be deemed infected, you will need inoculations. In such cases, you should make sure you have the following immunizations (depending on the specific area you intend to visit):

* Hepatitis (A and B)
* Typhoid
* Tetanus
* Yellow Fever
* Malaria Prescription

Other health advice for Kenya is to protect yourself from mosquito bites which could lead to malaria. Some protective measures against mosquito bites include wearing long sleeved shirts/blouses, long pants, use of mosquito repellent with a minimum of 30% DEET, and use of mosquito nets. If you will be travelling to the Kenyan coast or western Kenya, it is advisable to take anti-malaria pills.

Look into purchasing travel and medical insurance while abroad, just in case something happens. These type of short-term insurance services are available through some travel agencies and medical insurance companies. They may also be part of the services you already receive with your credit cards so check with your credit card company. Play it safe than sorry.

What to Pack for your Kenya travel?
Proper planning and packing is the key to a safe and comfortable trip to Kenya. Make sure you keep the following in mind when packing for your trip.

Remember that Kenya has a tropical climate. You should prepare yourself for a wide variety of conditions that may include dust, wet, hot and cool weather. Depending on your reason for travel to Kenya and the activities you intend to participate in, put careful thought in your activities and pack accordingly.

Furthermore, make certain that your luggage can withstand harsh conditions as well, particularly if you intend to travel to different parts of the country. You also need to keep in mind the requirements of the airline you will be flying. And don't forget to leave some space for the gifts you bring back.

Here are some basics to have when packing for Kenya travel:
* Camera
* Basic Essentials
* Comfortable, lightweight, and casual clothes (if you are on a safari, neutral is best, bright and bold is not)
* Comfortable and strong shoes or boots
* Brimmed Hat
* Sunscreen
* Insect Repellent
* Formal / Occasional wear (depending on your reason for travel)
* Toiletries
* Prescription Medication
* Sunglasses (and a spare pair)
* Medical Kit (for exploration)
* Swiss Army Knife (for exploration)
* Flashlight (for exploration)
* Video Camera and accessories
* Binoculars
* Travel Documents - Passport, visa, others
* Vaccination Certificates
* Insurance Documents
* Travelers Cheques
* Credit / Debit Cards


Safety & Security
You always want to be aware of your surroundings when travelling away from home. Travelling to Kenya is no different. Be vigilant when in public places and even more when venturing out at night. Incase of robbery, report at the nearest police station.

The Safety and Communication Centre is available to help with updates, travel advisories, road conditions, health issues, and security. Please contact them if you have any trouble during your visit to Kenya. Incase of health or emergency situation you may need this contact information.


Kenya Travel Tips - Travelling Do's and Don'ts
* We understand that you want to take as many pictures of the beautiful country, but before you begin to take pictures of houses or people, ask for their permission first. In some cases, you may be required to offer a tip for those pictures.
* Watch your money. Make sure when switching currency you do so in a reputable hotel, foreign exchange bureau or bank.
* Do not display your valuables to the world; this will keep you from being the target of theft.
* Only carry what you need in regards to money when venturing out.
* Keep yourself "undercover", do not display jewelry.
* If you are going on a Safari, watch your clothing choices. Bright colors (such as whites and blues) attract wild animals as well as insects. Camouflage clothing is in some cases illegal to wear.
* Never approach a wild animal even if they appear harmless.
* Drinking water - it is safer to drink bottled or mineral water
* Tipping is OK although not mandatory in most places. A tip of $5 (or equivalent) is acceptable for most services.


We hope these Kenya travel tips have been helpful and will prepare you for a wonderful visit to Kenya.
