Planning a successful trip to Kenya from India may be a daunting task. In this article, experts from have put together the following information to assist you in planning. Also, we‘ve highlighted a few of the most sought destinations in Kenya.

Passport and Travel Visa for Kenya

All visitors who want to travel to Kenya from India should be in possession of a valid passport with an expiry window of six months after the end of their intended stay in Kenya.

Next is VISA! There are three ways in which you can obtain a Kenya travel visa. The first and most convenient method is an online application that gives you an e-Visa. This mode of application saves not only money but also time and the energy you could have used traveling to the embassy.

You can apply for an e-Visa using your phone, laptop, PC, or any other device.

Secondly, you can obtain an application from the Kenyan Embassy or High Commission and wait for a few days for processing.

The third option involves a quick and straightforward procedure where you make an application upon arrival at any international airport. A single-entry visa costs US$50, a multiple-entry visa US$100, and transit costs US$20, valid for three months.

Health and Vaccination

Kenya falls within the yellow fever zones, and therefore it is mandatory to have the yellow fever vaccine to travel to Kenya. So, this certificate will be required upon arrival by the airport authorities.

Nowadays, the yellow fever vaccine lasts a lifetime, contrary to previous years when it could only last for ten years. Therefore, you only need to produce your previous vaccine booklet if you had previously received the jab.

Also, for personal safety, it is advisable that you take malaria preventive medication since some parts of Kenya, such as the coastal region and some game reserves, are Malaria infested zones.

When To Travel

Kenya’s climate varies considerably from one region to the other. This is mainly dictated by the altitude, seasonal monsoon wind, and proximity to water bodies. However, the general consensus about Kenya is that there are two seasons, dry and wet seasons.

In most cases, Kenya Vacation packages from India are scheduled during the dry season, which falls between December-January and July-October. Typically, these are the best months to view the wildlife in their natural habitat. For instance, the wildebeest migration starts in late June, reaches Masai mara in July, and remains in mara until October.

Nonetheless, the wet season has its perks though. Wet seasons mean an abundance of flora, low prices, and uncrowded national parks.

For How Long

There is a lot to do in Kenya; from wildlife viewing in the national park to interacting with the Maasai community to basking in the sandy beaches and hiking at Mt Kenya, there are so many sightseeing destinations that you cannot cover all in a single visit.

The question of how long to spend on your vacation is dependent on the number of tourist destinations you want to visit, time to spend on each, budget, and time available.

However, most Kenya tour packages from India run for either 3 days, 5 days a week, or two weeks, but this doesn’t mean you cannot have a longer vacay. Some top tour companies, such as ltd are flexible and offer customized packages. Therefore, you can have your customized package to fit your budget and needs.
