What health precautions should be taken?

  • Samburu sunrise Poonam Kishor Shah

The guest should consult a Travel Doctor, GP or Practising Nurse at least 6-8 weeks in advance of travel, who can assess particular health risks and recommend vaccines and /or antimalarial tablets accordingly. Saruni/Old Boma Ltd. cannot offer general medical advice in place of a medical professional.

  • Yellow fever vaccination is not compulsory in order to enter Kenya and yellow fever in itself is not a major threat, but we advise the guest to ask his/her doctor about the need for a yellow fever vaccination. If guests are travelling on to a destination or returning home following a visit to Kenya, they may be asked to present a valid Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate on arrival, having declared they have just visited or travelled from Kenya.
  • When travelling, hepatitis is always a concern and we advise the guest to ask his/her doctor about the need for an A-type vaccination, it lasts for ten years and will give peace of mind.
