What to Expect When Travelling to Kenya.

You will not be allowed to get out of the vehicle during a safari trip so your photographs must be taken from the vehicle unless your guide advises otherwise. If you would like to take photographs of people especially the Maasai, please always ask for their permission first before doing so. Taking photographs in Kenya of official buildings is prohibited and could lead to detention.

In Kenya people are friendly. Children and adults are likely to greet you when they see you. Greet people back or even when walking into shops or establishments of any sorts, as otherwise it may be construed as rude.

Tap Water:
In Kenya water is safe and clean but is not suitable for drinking. You will find mineral water in every shop, stall or even roadside vendors. Ensure your water bottles are sealed.

Many cafes, restaurants and hotels have Wi-Fi internet and internet cafes are available in almost all major towns and cities. There are other options as well where you can purchase an affordable dongle from local service providers or an internet package for your iPad.
Cell phone companies are competitive and will have towers for coverage in almost all towns, villages, and cities as it is for many villages the sole form of communication and money transfers.

You can easily purchase a cellphone and a SIM card for yourp hone. Just brings along your identity card or passport to the service provider"s office and get connected in minutes at a mere US $0. 50 cents.

Things to Remember.

Is not mandatory but the prevalent etiquette is to give something for “chai” or “Soda” (tea or a soft drink). A decent tip would be around 10% of your bill.

Kenya is a safe place. As one would generally do when travelling anywhere, be cautious when travelling alone, at night and in the cities or quiet places, do not leave your belongings unattended and mind your gadgets (cameras, phones, etc.) when walking through usy streets or areas.

Best time to travel:
July-September as they are the coolest times of the year (23°C - 28°C) on the coast. Otherwise, the dry season is ideal for safari as animals congregate around water holes to drink.
