Safety on Safari

    The basic rules of safari are:
    • Don’t feed animals you don’t own.
    • If you don’t know ask.
    • Always listen to your guide.
    • Do not go walkabout without a guide.
    • Wild animals are called that because they are wild and unpredictable.
    • Many rivers are populated with crocodiles and hippo's, even if you can’t see them.

    Road Safety

    Most of the developing world is exposed to similar dangers while driving; poor roads, un-roadworthy vehicles, unlicensed drivers, unfenced wild and domestic animals and many pedestrians walking on road verges without pavements. Drive slowly, with caution, in daylight if you can help it and always wear your seat belts.


    These are merely guidelines please follow the advice of your local health practitioner and the World Health organisation.

    Malaria is found in all of Kenya’s major tourism areas with even occasionally in the Highlands Nairobi. Mosquitoes, malarial and otherwise, are best dealt with by using mosquito repellent, long baggy clothing in the evenings and sleeping under a mosquito net.

    Compulsory Vaccinations

    A Yellow fever certificate is required if arriving within 6 days after leaving or transiting countries with infected areas. Exempt: Children under 1 year, those not leaving the airport whilst in transit and those entering Kenya not having left an airport during transit in affected countries.

    Recommended Vaccinations for all travellers
