Default Things I need to know in Kenya

Hi,

I'm going to Kenya in December. Are there any special things that I need to
know about Kenya before I go.

Thanks
Niels

Apart from it's wonderful and I love it, it's hard to say without knowing
what sort of trip you're doing and what you need to know.
One general piece of advice is take more than usual care if out and about in
Nairobi, and don't go walking out alone there.

only drink bottled water that you open yourself.
keep mind of your bag and personal belongings, especially in Nairobi.
Don't wear flashy jewellry, watches etc....
Be wary of your surroundings.
Don't carry anything in your back pockets.
Agree on a price before you go anywhere with anyone.
Carry toilet paper where ever you go!
use alcohol gel hand wash
Malaria is prevelant, especially around Mombasa

Smile lots and say "Jambo, Habari Yako? Vipi?"

and most of all have fun... I too will be there(Mombasa/Malindi) in Dec.

Kwaheri ma rafiki
Tashi
p.s. be mindful of the culture.. It has a large % of Muslim people there.

Rarely will you bump into a leopard on the loose, it all depends on where you are anyway, thats nothing to scare you
