Kenya Travel Tips
Before you make your memorable trip to Kenya, here are a few Kenya Travel Tips to help you enjoy your stay in this beautiful country.
- Capital is Well Advanced
Nairobi is pretty advanced. Right from when you arrive at the Jomo Kenyatta International airport, you will have most facilities within your reach. You can acquire a Kenya Sim Card to make calls affordably, you can access your money through ATMs or in banking hall (depending on time), your esteemed Travel Agency’s Representative/ Driver will be paging you to transfer you to your hotel.
Don’t panic about your trip. Popular fast-food joints and nearly everything you can buy back home is easily available here, so no need to drag an oversized suitcase around the world!
- Kenyans Love Meat
If you’re a vegetarian, you might have some difficulty with this. Always call ahead and let your host know you’re dietary requirements. If you are going on a camping safari, your travel agency will ask you well in advance about the same. Many restaurants are popping up in order to cater to vegetarians, but for the most part, meat still rules the menus.
- Dress Up
While you will not be expected to wear a suit to safari, we don’t like seeing you in sweat pants in important meetings! Dress appropriately. Visit, www.kenttoursntravel.com for Kenya Safari Packing List.
- Don’t ask us our Tribe
This is a tricky one. Kenyans are not overly sensitive about this question, it’s something we acknowledge. However it does get a bit old, so try not to bring this up at every conversation. Many tourists are fascinated by this concept and tend to ask this question. While it’s not entirely offensive, it is weird. Especially refrain from doing this in a large group of Kenyans. Save it for friends, or people you meet one-on-one.
- Cheap is expensive
It’s true that local merchants tend to overcharge tourists for certain items. While this may make you feel unhappy and drive you to question the price of everything, what you also need to know is that sometimes haggling too much on the price can also be seen as rude. Besides, cheap can be expensive!
- Mobile phone Etiquette
Don’t cross the street while talking On Your Phone
While this seems like basic common sense safety advice, it’s also important to realize that this is against the law and can get you in trouble if you are caught. Given that the streets are so busy, you may not even see the officers coming, so just put the phone down for a few seconds.
