Destination

Kenya

General Information

Kenya has beautiful natural landscapes of savanna plains and vast forests all filled with an abundance of wildlife.

The nation’s diverse range of traditional African cultures is influenced by over 70 unique ethnic groups from the Maasai, Samburu, Kikuyu, and Turkana tribes to the Arabic and Indian cultures that settled along the coast. Besides the beautiful inland landscapes known for Safaris, Kenya is also well known for its attractive tropical coastline with magnificent golden sand beaches, stunning coral reefs providing excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities. It’s easy to see why travellers want to come to Kenya to experience a truly unique African adventure in one of the world’s most pristine safari destinations.

FAQs

Climate & Weather

Temperate subtropical climate in the west and southwest highlands (where Nairobi is located), hot and humid along the coast, and hot and dry in the north and east.

TRAVEL, TRANSPORT AND GETTING AROUND

Nairobi has two airports for domestic and regional flights: Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and Wilson Airport.

Kenya has over 150 domestic airports and airstrips and there are daily flights to the most popular destinations. In addition to the scheduled airlines, several private charter companies operate out of Wilson Airport. In Kenya driving is on the left side of the road. Roads in most of the wilderness areas are in poor condition and unmarked and self-driving is not recommended, rather have an experienced safari guide along with you throughout journey.

FOOD, DRINK & CUISINE ADVICE

Meat is popular among the locals and those who are interested in local cuisine, there are plenty of local dishes to try. Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine is also popular, as are fresh-water fish inland, and sea fish along the coast.

Drinking the tap water is not recommended as the supply is not reliable, but bottled water is available in most places. Alternatively bring your own reusable water bottle with a filter or use water purification tablets. Food prepared by unlicensed vendors should be avoided at all times.

CLOTHING & DRESS RECOMMENDATIONS

For Nairobi and the coast: lightweight cotton and linens are advised. Warmer clothing is needed in June and July, while rainwear is advisable between March and June, and October and December. 

For safari: loose-fitting and light neutral colours are recommended. If you are visiting a luxury lodge, pack a more semi-formal/formal set of clothes for dinner.

CURRENCY

The currency of Kenya is the Kenyan Shilling (KES; symbol KSh).
