TRAVELING TO KENYA, AFRICA
Kenya (officially the Republic of Keyna) is a country located on the Eastern Coast of Africa. It is bordered by Tanzania to the South, Uganda to the West, South Sudan to the North-West, Ethiopia to the North and Somalia to the North-East. Its coastline connects to the Indian Ocean.
As you might have guessed, Kenya has a warm and humid climate along its coastline. However the weather is cooler around the capital city of Nairobi and especially cooler the closer you get to Mount Kenya. Kenya’s climate is diverse but typically safari goers experience the hot dry areas of the region.
Beautiful views and a variety of wildlife are going to be the main attractions. Game drives allow tourists more of an up close and personal look at animals ranging from baboons, hyenas, leopards, zebras and even lions. Make sure you bring extra batteries for the camera!
Depending on the adventure, Kenya offers a wide variety of lodging. The safari crowd can look forward to lodges, camps and reserves. Resorts and hotels are also available depending on location and itinerary.
Pack for a warm-hot humid climate. Sturdy shoes or boots are a must. Pack multiple cameras or multiple battery packs. There are ticks – bring tweezers and antiseptic. Consider Dramamine for rough roads and a solid backpack or bag for gear. Anything with lots of pockets – you’ll be surprised what you all want to bring, especially if your game drive is 12 hours long. Surprisingly, bring less clothes than you think you’ll need – no one will notice and dragging around luggage is not fun.
Be conscious of any existing health issues. Medical bands/bracelets should be worn. Consult with your physician before traveling if necessary. There are mandatory injections and medications required before visiting Kenya. These include Diphtheria, Hepatitis A, Poliomyelitis, Tetanus and Typhoid. Also consider Yellow Fever, Cholera, Hepatitis B, Pneumococcal Meningitis and Rabies. Malaria tablets – although most of the region is low risk – it’s better to err on the side of caution.
Don’t forget – make sure your passport is up-to-date and you will need to purchase a visa when traveling into Kenya. Visa’s are typically around $50. While Kenyan’s are very friendly there is considerable poverty and as a tourist you will draw more attention to yourself with flashy jewelry or expensive equipment. Dress respectively and modestly. Kenya is predominately Christian with a smaller percentage of Muslims.
