    General Information

    Climate

    • Kenya is generally warm all year round with temperature fluctuations mainly determined by altitude. One of the most popular times to visit Kenya is from July to September, which coincides with the Great Migration. A good time to see baby animals and migratory bird species is typically from December to February.
    • The approximate seasons are January to March, short dry season; April to June, long wet season; July to October, long dry season and November to December, short wet season. During rainy seasons there are fewer tourists and the landscape is strikingly green and lush.

    Language & Currency

    • Kiswahili and English are the official languages of Kenya. Kiswahili is spoken by most Kenyans, with English fluency varying outside of major towns and cities. There are over 65 languages spoken throughout Kenya which mainly belong to the various Bantu and Nilotic tribal populations.
    • The local currency is the Kenyan shilling, which divides into 100 cents. US dollars are often accepted; local currency is best for tipping and small purchases. Hotels in tourist areas generally accept credit cards; however, surcharges are commonplace. Remote lodges often accept cash only. Access to cash machines is available in most major towns, and exchanging currency can be done in banks and foreign exchange bureaus.

    Visa & Access

    • Most foreign nationals will require a visa for entry to Kenya. Please check with your local Kenyan Embassy or our travel team for further information. Tourist visas can often be obtained, on arrival, at most ports of entry. The Kenyan government has introduced an online ‘e-visa’ application system for obtaining tourist visas in advance of travel.
    • Kenya has three international airports; Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi (NBO), Moi International Airport in Mombasa (MBA) and Moi International Airport in Eldoret (EDL).

    Health

    • At least 6-8 weeks before departure, please visit your local health care provider or travel clinic for any vaccination requirements and to discuss any other potential health risks, such as malaria (where applicable). All travellers should ensure they have a valid travel insurance policy in place.

    For any further questions on Kenya or your holiday, contact our friendly travel team who will assist you with any information you require.
