Kenya is a year-round destination. That said, the weather can vary considerably depending on whether you’re going to high-altitude reserves, low-lying areas, or to the coast. Wherever you go, you’re very close to the Equator and that means the sun can be fierce.
The prime wildlife viewing months are during the dry season between late June and October. The famous wildebeest great migration normally reaches the Masai Mara around mid-July and can continue until mid-November before moving back to the Serengeti in Tanzania.
January and February are also popular, but — as with the dry season — the best-known parks can become very crowded, especially the Masai Mara, Amboseli, and Lake Nakuru. Rainfall is highest between March and May, and some lodges and camps close. If you're a birder, however, it's the best time of the year!
On Kenya's tropical Indian Ocean coast, temperatures rarely drop below 20°C, even at night, with sea temperatures measuring around a balmy 25°C.
The currency of Kenya is the Kenyan Shilling (KES).
ATMs are widely available in Nairobi and the main towns, and credit cards are widely accepted. Please note that it’s unlikely you’ll be able to exchange Scottish or Northern Irish banknotes in Kenya.
Most Kenyans working in the travel industry are lowly-paid and rely heavily on tips. Give what you feel is appropriate for the service you've received, and always tip in Kenyan Shilling notes. It's difficult for staff to change foreign currency, they also have to pay commission to the money changer, and they can't change coins at all.
It’s normal to tip for good service in restaurants, bars, and cafes in Kenya. Tips are also appreciated in hotels, serviced apartments, and other places where staff may not be well-paid, such as spas or salons.
As a general rule, expect to tip around 10% of the bill. If you get exceptionally good service, say thank you with a tip closer to 15%-20%.
A couple of examples...
100 Kenyan shillings meal = suggested tip of 10 or 15 Kenyan Shillings
10 Kenyan shillings for a drink = suggested tip of 1-2 Kenyan Shillings
