Healthcare in Kenya
Private and public healthcare services are both available in Kenya, however, the facilities can vary quite significantly depending on where you travel to in Kenya. We advise that you make sure you have adequate travel insurance that includes medical conditions before travel, to avoid any costly bills, should anything happen whilst abroad.
It’s also really important to make sure you speak to your GP at least 4 to 6 weeks prior to travel to check whether there are any vaccinations or other preventatives needed.
