The only requirement
for visitors to Kenya is a Certificate of inoculation against
Yellow fever which is required from travellers older than
one year and coming from infected areas (i.e. along the tropics
20 N and 10 S). Visitors from the rest of the world are not
drugs before, during and after the trip can reduce the possibility
of infection with malaria. You are however advised to try
and avoid mosquito bites by using repellents and by wearing
suitable cover-up clothes in the evening.
Hotels and lodges
supply clean drinking water but whenever in doubt, please
drink only bottled mineral water which is available in most
hotels and stores. Outside Nairobi and Mombasa, drinking water
from the tap is not encouraged.
There are very
good hospitals in the main towns of Kenya and the rural areas
have small health centres where one can get first aid.
