 USEFUL INFORMATION & TRAVEL TI PS.

LUGGAGE:

Luggage on safari should be kept to a minimum.  Space on vehicles and on light aircraft services is limited.

Luggage should preferable be in soft canvas bags.  Nairobi hotels have storage facilities for baggage.  

CLIMATE:

Temperatures in the highlands are very pleasant, and reach a maximum of 29-30 C (daytime) during the hottest months of DEC to APR period.  Nights can be cold in the higher altitudes particularly during our winter of June-October.  

CLOTHING:

The emphasis is on informality, and comfort.  Cotton slacks, jeans, and shirts, are ideal.  Most lodges/hotels have a swimming pool, so bring your swimwear, sunglasses and a hat.  Pack a warm pullover for chilly nights up-country.  

HEALTH: (Medical details from AMREF doctors).

Malaria is endemic in certain areas of East Africa, particularly at low altitudes, such as the coast.  

To avoid being bitten, we suggest using insect repellants spray on arms and legs. Sleep under a mosquito net. If you wish to take prophylactics, we suggest  Mallarone,  which is the most effective.

Proguanil (Paludrine) is also  safe  for children & expectant mothers.

Avoid Mefloquine (Lariam) as it can cause disturbed sleep. (Kenya's strain of Malaria is resistant to Chloroquin).

Water; drink bottled water, not tap water. There is a variety of bottled water you can buy in shops/restaurants.

TIPPING:

It is customary to give a tip of about 1 USD for 2 cases to your porter in the hotel.  Waiters in restaurants can be tipped about 10% of meals costs if the service has been good.  Safari driver-guides should also be given a tip at the end of an enjoyable safari, of approximately 3-5 USD per passenger per day.

*Before taking pictures of the local people, ask permission and agree on the price.  The driver-guide will assist you.

SECURITY:

Common sense should prevail and precautions should be taken as in any major city.  Take care of your valuables by locking them up in the hotel safe.  Carry only small amounts of cash.  Avoid wearing expensive jewellery when walking in towns, villages.
