How safe is it to visit Kenya

Kenya security

Kenya security - what is it like? The good news:Kenya is largely considered a safe country. There are some regions that are less safe, but most of them are the border area with Somalia and other areas that are not part of the tourist destinations. Generally speaking, traveling in a group or with a local guide is of course safer than exploring the country on your own.

Of course, we only offer our Kenya trips to areas that are considered safe. With our office in Nairobi, we are on site and have a long, trusting relationship with our partners. Vehicles, activities, hotels: we have personally selected and tested everything for you. You can rest assured that you are in the best of hands on your Kenya trip. The Kenyans are very friendly, warm and funny - we are sure you will be just as enthusiastic about the people of the country as we are.

Kenya security: tips for your Kenya vacation

Avoid walking at night

In Nairobi, especially in the city center, you shouldn't be alone at night. There are also hot spots that you shouldn't visit during the day. It is best not to go to beaches after dark. If you are unsure, your local guide or travel agent will be happy to help.

Before you travel to Kenya, speak to a doctor

Protection against mosquito bites is provided by long clothing, headgear and a mosquito repellent containing DEET. For more information on malaria, the right prophylaxis and vaccinations, please speak to your family doctor or visit a tropical medicine institute. In any case, you should seek medical advice before traveling to Kenya.

Leave the valuables at home

The Kenyans are very friendly, warm and funny - we are sure you will be just as enthusiastic about the people of the country as we are. In general, as in every travel destination, the following applies: Do not take any valuables with you; it is best to leave jewelry and watches in the hotel. Only take as much cash with you as you need and wear it close to your body.

Don't drink tap water

You should only drink water from the bottle or if it has been boiled beforehand. You can eat salads in our partner hotels and safari camps.
