Kenya Travel Tips
There are two official languages in Kenya, English and Swahili. Unless you are visiting
a really remote area with no guide, you need not worry, as most people you meet
will speak English. Kenyans are known for their wonderful hospitality, and it is
advisable to treat them with as much respect as they accord you. Ask for permission
before you take photographs of local people. Do not hesitate to ask your tour driver
to stop for you to ask questions or take better photographs of animals and birds.
Try your hand at bargaining for items, especially for souvenirs in markets and curio
shops. Chances are that the first price you hear is a bit on the high side, so come
back with a reasonable counter offer. Only buy something if you are comfortable
with the price and quality. Ask your tour guide for help and advice. Kenya is well
connected with telephone, fax, and email available in most hotels or cyber cafes
in the cities. There are good hospitals in all the cities with Nairobi having exceptionally
good medical services.
