About Kenya


Kenya lies astride the equator on the eastern coast of Africa. It is a mediumsized country by continental standards covering an area of about 586,600kmsq. Inland water bodies cover some 10,700km sq, the bulk of this in Lakes
Victoria and Turkana. The coastline, about 550km long, faces the Indian Ocean. Kenya has tremendous topographical diversity, including glaciated mountains with snow-capped peaks, the Rift Valley with its scarps and volcanoes, ancient granitic hills, flat desert landscapes and coral reefs and islets. However, the basic configuration is simple. Coastal plains give way to an inland plateau that rises gradually to the central highlands, which are the
result of the relatively recent volcanic activity associated with the formation of the Great Rift Valley, home to Kenya’s world beating middle and longdistance runners.


The national language of Kenya is Kiswahili. English is the official language, used in business, the media, parliament and as a medium of instruction in schools and colleges. Kiswahili is the most widely spoken African language. Kenyans speak a total of 42 African languages, some of which are dialects of the same language. The average Kenyan therefore speaks at least 3 different languages.


70% of Kenya’s population are Christian (40% Protestant and 30% Roman Catholic), 7% are Muslim who mainly live along the coast, whilst the rest comprise adherants of indeginous African religions.


All citizens of Australia and New Zealand (both adults and children) are required to hold valid visas to enter into Kenya. Visas are obtained from the Kenya High Commission in Canberra. Short term visas are valid for ninety (90) days. We can, upon request, arrange your visa for you.

Credit Cards

All banks and major tourist establishments accept credit cards.
The official currency of Kenya is the Kenya Shilling (Ksh). Bank notes come in denominations of 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000Ksh.


Tipping is customary in Kenya for driver guides and game lodge and hotel porters. $20 Australian per day is customary for driver guides. You may tip hotel and game lodge porters anything between $2 and $4 per service, which
is usually upon arriving and leaving a hotel or game lodge. Please note, tipping is not widely practiced outside game lodges and hotels.


Casual, lightweight, and comfortable clothing is usually the best. Clothing should be of neutral colour, and white, bright or vividly patterned clothing avoided. Studies have proven that most African game animals are able to see
bright blue over any other colour!
