Reviews by INVITED Members
Worldwide 24/7 Support
Capital city: Nairobi.
Currency: Kenyan shilling (in 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 Ksh notes).
Cuisine: Expect rice and fish, often flavoured with coconut, tamarind and exotic spices.
Tipping etiquette: Tipping isn’t common, and in tourist-oriented businesses service charges are usually added to your bill.
Saying hello: Kenyans speak both English and Bantu Swahili, so say “hello” or “hujambo”.
WHEN TO GO
Mountains, beaches and sprawling savannah in between – Kenya’s diverse terrain means there’s rarely a bad time to visit. To witness the unforgettable sight of the annual wildebeest migration, aim for June to October. The rains come throughout the year in different areas, but the wet season is usually between March and May. At this time you’ll find the national parks quieter and the landscape even more vibrant as the soil turns rust red.
Be prepared to haggle when you browse the local markets– soapstone carvings and Masai beaded mementos make excellent gifts.
