Visit Kenya – Plan Your Trip
Best Time to Visit Kenya:
July through September are the best months to visit Kenya. This is the time when the wildebeest migration travels through the Maasai Mara.
Kenya – Visa Requirements
Most nationalities require a visa for entry to Kenya, however there are more than 40 countries on the list of exceptions. Obtain a visa at the Nairobi airport or get one in advance through a Kenyan embassy or a visa service. Based on our visit in 2013, we recommend that you obtain your visa upon arrival. The line ups are just as long whether you have your visa ahead of time or not. Check out requirements for your specific country at VisaHQ. For a list of exempt countries, visit Project Visa.
Recommended Kenya Travel Vaccinations:
Consult a travel clinic before visiting Kenya. Hep A, Hep B, yellow fever, tetanus, typhoid and malaria are standard precautions. A yellow fever certificate is only required when arriving from a yellow fever zone. Malaria is a risk only in areas with suitable wetland for female anopheles mosquitoes. The Maasai Mara and other areas outside Nairobi are good places to take malaria medication. Review our general Medical Travel Advice too.
