Kenya Travel Information


Visitors to Kenya are required by law to have passports with validity of not less than six months and prerequisite visas. You can obtain your visa at the Kenya Embassy in your country or on arrival at the airport. We however advise you to have your visa prior to travel since most airlines and airport authorities expect you to have one prior to travel to Kenya. Check visa requirements to Kenya from your tour operator, airline, Kenyan tourist office or embassy in your country before embarking on your visit.


Visitors from Europe do not require yellow fever and or cholera vaccinations. However, visitors from countries where the diseases are prevalent require yellow fever and cholera vaccination certificates. Carry along some anti malaria tablets. Avoid foods and drinks from backstreet vendors. Under no circumstances should you bathe in rivers and / or lakes.

There are a number of reputable hospitals in the cities and large towns as well as Flying Doctor services which cover remote areas.”

In Mombasa there are some hospital with European standard. Between Germany and Kenya is a social security agreement, so we recommend a health insurance.


Kenya’s currency, the Kenyan Shilling (Ksh) is liberated therefore money is freely changed at banks, forex bureaux, and at the hotels. We advise that you check exchange rates regularly, and that you exchange your currency at banks or licensed foreign exchange bureaus – avoid street dealers altogether. Major Credit Cards are widely accepted and Banks at international airports operate 24-hour service. Also there are ATM available.

Weather and Climate in Kenya

Kenya’s different topographical regions experience distinct climates. 

Generally, the hottest time is in February and March and the coldest in July and August. 

The coastal region is largely humid and wet. The city of Malindi, for instance, receives an average rainfall of 1,050 mm (41 in) per year, with average temperatures ranging from 21° to 32°C (70° to 90°F) in January and 20° to 29°C (68° to 84°F) in July. 

The low plateau area is the driest part of the country. There, the town of Wajir receives an average annual rainfall of 320 mm (13 in) and experiences average temperatures ranging from 19° to 37°C (66° to 99°F) in January and 19° to 34°C (66° to 93°F) in July. 

Nairobi, in the temperate Kenya highlands, receives an average annual rainfall of 790 mm (31 in) and experiences average temperatures ranging from 9° to 29°C (48° to 84°F) in January and 7° to 26°C (45° to 79°F) in July. 

Higher elevation areas within the highlands receive much larger amounts of rainfall. The Lake Victoria basin in western Kenya is generally the wettest region in the country, particularly the highland regions to the north and south of Kisumu, where average annual rainfall ranges from 1,740 mm (70 in) to 1,940 mm (80 in). Average temperatures in this region range from 14° to 34°C (57° to 93°F) in January and 14° to 30°C (57° to 86°F) in July. 

The average annual temperatures in the main areas are: 

Mombasa (coastal): Max 30ºC, Min 22ºC 

Nairobi: Max 25ºC, Min 13ºC 

North Plainlands: Max 34ºC, Min 23ºC 

Rainfall occurs seasonally throughout most of Kenya. The coast, eastern plateaus, and lake basin experience two rainy seasons: 

the “long rains” extends roughly from March to June, 

and the “short rains” lasts from approximately October to December. 

The highlands of western Kenya have a single rainy season, lasting from March to September. 

All parts of the country are subject to periodic droughts, or delays in the start of the rainy seasons. Kenya’s climate has had a profound effect on settlement patterns, as for centuries population has been concentrated in the wettest areas of the country.


Dress decently to keep up with African culture and traditions, dress warmly for cold weather and light at the coast.


A service charge is usually included in all tariffs, however tipping for exceptional service is always appreciated and is largely at your discretion. Customary tips for bar service and room porters are 10% whereas restaurant tariffs that exclude service charge will anticipate a 5-10% tip.

Code of Conduct

  • Driving

    Please ask your driver to stay on the designated tracks, even if it means you may not get the best photograph. Off-road driving causes irreparable damage to the vegetation and may kill or injure baby animals hiding in the grass.

  • Wildlife viewing

    Wildlife surrounded by vehicles is unpleasant and causes great distress. Cheetahs hunt only during the day and can easily be deprived of their meal if surrounded by vehicles. Please be quiet when viewing: ask the driver to switch off the engine and keep a minimum distance of 20 metres. Do not, under any circumstances, get out of your vehicle. Many animals will become aggressive when harassed or provoked. In addition, adhere to instructions from your nature guide while on a nature walk.

  • Feeding and smoking

    Never feed animals at your hotel or in the wild since it upsets their diet and leads to unnecessary dependence on people. Smoking while on a game drive is highly discouraged and always dispose off cigarettes carefully while at camp. Careless disposal of a burning cigarette can start a wildfire that will cause damage to vegetation and suffering to wildlife and people.

  • Litter

    Litter and garbage in nature-viewing areas is unsightly, affects your enjoyment and threatens the survival of wildlife. It can also cause accidents to people and marine life.

  • Corals

    These are fragile living organism, they being destroyed by careless recreational activities, to avoid damage-use the established mooring points. Coral reefs provide essential feeding grounds for many species of marine life. When diving or swimming, avoid kicking up sand or stepping on coral, at it suffocates and kills coral polyps.

  • Language

    Swaheli, English for government and business.

Kenya Safaris from Nairobi and Mombasa

Kenya, the pearl of East- Africa

This name has a magical attraction. As a child you already have the picture of romantic and mystical Africa in mind and dream about discovering and experiencing this (fascinating) land one day. Everybody was glued to the TV while watching Tania Blixens „Out of Africa“(1985) and (the German movie/production) „The white Masai“ (2005). And after many visitations in zoological gardens the wish to go there grows even stronger.

Animal paradises like Masai Mara, Amboseli, Tsavo or Samburu attract with huge flocks of elefants and wildebeests, with the „big five“ and with unique adventures in the bush and in the savannah. In noble Lodges located in the best places of these parks you have time to assimilate those adventures and space to follow your current dreams. But also the ascent of the highest mountain in Kenya (Mt. Kenya) features uniqueness. Wonderful landscape, indescribable peace and the amiable character of the kenyan helpers at the mountain.

After these experiences the pleasure of the beaches of the kenyan coasts is waiting for you. Miles and miles of sand white as snow edged by palm trees and right in the middle you will find fantastic hotels for every taste. The Indian Ocean invites everybody to explore the secrets of the fascinating world underwater by snorkelling and diving.

Experience all these paradises in combination with the gracious hospitality of the Kenyan and get enchanted by this unique part of Africa. Of which is said: „You can leave Africa again, but Africa will not leave you!“
