What You Need.

Trip Requirements
 

Packing for a trip can be a nightmare because of strict weight checks that airlines place on your baggage. The weight, more often than not, quickly adds up especially if you include imaging gear like cameras, power bricks and other accessories. At Endless Safaris, we provide you with a break down all the necessary pre-travel checks you need while taking a trip with us. It is important to read through this section keenly to make your trip as smooth and hassle-free as possible.

 

On arrival

Holders of US passports must have in their possession:

  • A passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of travel.
  • At least 2 empty pages for entry/exit stamps.
  • A tourist visa form for entry into the country you are visiting, which is included in your packet.  Fill it out on the way there; it’s a good way to pass the time on the plane.
  • For Visa requirements please visit evisa.go.ke
 
 

Vaccinations

Vaccinations for Yellow Fever are needed for East and Southern Africa. In Addition, we recommend that you make sure your Tetanus vaccination is up to date.

Malaria prevention medication is highly recommended. There are a couple of different types to choose from and your doctor should help you make that choice. This will require a prescription from your doctor.

 

Currency

  • There are ATM machines in major cities and towns across East Africa. ATM Machines mostly dispense local currency only. You will be provided with more information on request about currency requirements
  • Hotels and lodges will often exchange your money for local currency.
  • We suggest that you bring your country’s currency in various denominations. This will be helpful for tipping if you choose to do so.
  • Please choose your preferred currency from the drop-down menu.

Baggage

  • Try to put everything in one soft-sided bag (wheeled).  This makes travel between camps much easier.
  • Consult your airline or respective airport control authority for current regulations regarding what can and cannot be packed in carry on and checked luggage.

 

Laundry

Laundry service is available at all hotels and camps. In some camps, laundry is included at no extra charge.  Where added costs might or other requirements are needed, we will advise in advance.

 

Power requirements

Electricity output throughout East Africa is 220 volts.  If you have electrical equipment which must be plugged into a receptacle, you will need a converter kit (Type G). This includes equipment that needs to be recharged. It is advisable that you bring extra batteries if you are bringing battery operated equipment. To charge batteries, phones, laptops and other electronic devices, you will need a standard TYPE G plug adapter.

Timezone

Kenya is usually 7-8 hours ahead of New York depending on the season. The local time is usually set to GMT +3. You can find more information  on timezone setup relevant to your country here ➜

 

Passport copies

Make two copies of the information page of your passport.  Leave one at home with the page of contact phone numbers and put the other one in a piece of luggage other than the one in which you carry your passport.
