Health Tips

Several vaccinations are highly recommended, they include: Yellow Fever, Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Diphtheria.
It is also recommended that you are up to date with your polio
and tetanus vaccinations. Contact a travel clinic at least 3 month
before you plan to travel. Malaria: There’s a risk of catching malaria pretty much every where you travel in Kenya. The highlands used to be a low risk area, but even there, you have to be careful and take precautions.


In general people are extremely friendly in Kenya and you will be humbled by their hospitality. But, there is real poverty in Kenya and you will soon realize that you are far richer and more fortunate than most local people you meet. You will probably attract your fair share of souvenir hawkers and beggars, but try and take the time to meet ordinary people going about their day to day business too. The experience will be worth it. Don’t be afraid to step out of our tour bus.
