KENYA TRAVEL INFORMATION

IMMIGRATION
All visitors are advised to have Visas on arrival; you are therefore requested to check the applicable requirements with your travel agent, diplomatic missions or any nearest tourist office and at Airline offices.

SECURITY
As in all countries, security is basically 'common sense'. It is not advisable to walk around at night. Please check with your lodge for safe -boxes. Kenya enjoys excellent political environment and security is a major concern. Security matters have been dealt with appropriately though. FAMILY SAFARI
Children under the age of seven (7) are not admitted at tree hotels.

LUGGAGE/CLOTHING
When on safari we recommend lightweight luggage due to inadequate storage facilities; but special arrangements can be facilitated at no extra cost. Light cotton and linen dresses, short sleeved shirts are recommended plus pullovers for chilly nights at high altitudes. Flat comfy walking shoes and sandals are an asset. Bring along with you Sun hats and glasses to protect against the sun, and don't forget a smile.

MEDICAL
Its advisable to check current health requirements with airlines. Visitors are sometimes advised, although not mandatory, except in some instances (i.e. Far East, Central America, South, Central and West Africa), to have yellow fever and cholera certification. Kenya has excellent hospitals and doctors in addition to the Flying doctor service who will fly you promptly in case of any illnesses. There are pharmacies in all major towns, but its advisable to carry adequate supplies of drugs if prescribed on safari.

DEPARTURE TAX/ CUSTOMS
Airport departure tax is not included and can be payable in foreign currency. Personal effects like cameras and other accessories (excluding slides and cine projectors) can be temporarily imported duty free.

MEALS/SHOPPING
This is generally British style with full breakfast, lunch and dinner, tea or coffee included with main meals. Special considerations will be accepted at a cost. Nairobi and Mombasa have excellent shopping facilities for almost anything, ranging from souvenirs to basic needs items.

INFRASTRUCTURE

Most parts of Kenya, including game lodges, can be accessed easily using light aircrafts from Nairobi's Wilson Airport. 30 International airlines operate from Nairobi and Kenya Airways is the National carrier, flying to Mombasa, Kisumu, Malindi and Eldoret. Road network is comprehensive and communication Bureaus are found in almost all buildings in major towns.

CURRENCY

The basic unit of Kenyan currency is the shilling, used on the decimal system and divided into 100 cents. Exchange rates can be checked from banks and foreign exchange bureaus. Visitors can bring any amounts of foreign currency and no currency declaration is required. Banks give slightly better rates of exchange than hotels. We strongly advise you to avoid street dealers. A number of International banks operate in Nairobi. Hours of business are 0900-0300 weekdays, 0900-1100 Saturdays. A 24 hour service exists at Jomo Kenyatta Airport including Sundays and public holidays.

CLIMATE

In general, climate varies with altitude, but seldom falls below24oc during the day and 10oc at night. There are two rainy seasons in Kenya, October-Dec, and Mar-June.

LANGUAGE

English is spoken everywhere. The national language is Kiswahili. Most hotels and lodges print their literature in English, French, and Germany and have multilingual staff.
