Health Advice

Visitors to Kenya arriving from yellow fever-infested and cholera-infested areas must have valid vaccination certificates. Malaria is rare in Nairobi and the Highlands, but prevalent in the hot and humid low altitude areas around the coast, Lake Victoria and the savannah. Prescribed dosages of malaria prophylactics should be taken two weeks before travel, during your stay in Kenya and continued for two more weeks after your departure.


Lightweight clothing and dresses are suitable throughout the year except during the cooler months of June to August, when warmer clothing is advisable. 


Short-stay drivers require only their own valid driving licences, which have to be endorsed at the Road Transport Office in Nairobi, either at Income Tax House (Ngong Road) or Times Tower (Haile Selassie Avenue). An international driving licence is the most convenient. Your travel agent can organize a “carnet de passage” for you, which covers, amongst other things, international driving licence and insurance.

Driving is on the left, and drivers approaching from the right at roundabouts are given priority. Fuel is sold in litres, and distances are measured and marked in kilometres.

If you wish to drive your own car/motorcycle through Kenya, contact the Kenya Revenue Authority for information on the necessary papers you need to produce and the taxes that will be levied.


There are no restrictions on the foreign exchange you may bring into the country. However, if you wish to take out of the country amounts exceeding the equivalent of Ksh 500,000, you require written authorisation from the Central Bank of Kenya. Defacement of the Kenyan currency is an indictable offence. The unit of currency is the Kenya Shilling. Notes come in denominations of Kshs10, Kshs20, Kshs50, Kshs100, Kshs500, and Kshs1,000. It is recommended that you change your foreign currency only in banks, bureaux de change or authorized hotels.

Visitors should change any surplus Kenyan currency at a bank or bureau de change prior to their departure. Banks making this transaction may wish to see the original receipts issued when the foreign currency was exchanged. Kenyan currency cannot be used for purchases at airport duty-free shops. Major international credit cards are acceptable in many establishments.

Business and Banking Hours

Most banks in the major urban centres have a bureau de change, while hotels are authorised to transact in foreign exchange. Banks are open between 9.00 am and 3.00 pm, Monday through Friday, and between 9.00 am and 11.00 am on the first and last Saturday of the month. Branches of banks at the Jomo Kenyatta and Moi International Airports run 24-hour services.

Offices in Kenya are generally open between 8.00 am and 5.00 pm, Monday through Friday.


The electricity supply in Kenya is 220/240 volts 50Hz. Sockets are usually three pins square. It is advisable to ensure that appliances such as videos or battery chargers operating on other voltage have a built-in adapter. It is recommended that you bring your own adapter.


Kenya Kenya Standard Time is 3 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+3). Kenya is in East Africa Time Zone (EAT).


Most hotels, game lodges and tented camps include a service charge in their tariff, as do most restaurants, and in such cases tipping is not necessary unless exceptional service inspires a desire to express extra appreciation. Your Kenyan tour operator will be happy to make some suggestion concerning suitable amounts, which vary according to the quality of service rendered.
