The reason for this is that Kenya visa applications are automatically approved by the Kenyan Government after screening. At times the system becomes congested due to high volumes of applications, and this can cause some applications to be excluded in the batch approvals. When this happens, the approval will no longer be generated.

Instead, travelers will have to print copies of the visa payment invoice and use the printed copy to board the plane and for visa issuance upon arrival in Kenya. The airlines are aware of this, so the travelers will have no problem entering the country.

Africa is a beautiful continent, and many African countries are on people’s bucket list such as Kenya. As you can imagine, most people visit African countries to go on safaris, but the scenery is not too bad either. Nonetheless, there are a few things you should probably be aware of before your departure, and most of them regard your personal safety. While Kenya is a relatively safe country, you should always be prepared to avoid trouble. Stick around to learn a few basic things that you should keep in mind if you are thinking of visiting Kenya. First of all, as mentioned above, Kenya is a pretty safe place to visit. People there are very friendly, and you will be respected as a tourist. At the same time, however, Kenya is a poor country, so petty crimes will happen if you draw too much attention to yourself. The best thing you could do is wear clothes that do not attract attention, and you should probably leave all your jewelry at home. If you have a camera or other such devices, you should keep them away from sight when you are not using them. At the same time, it is recommended that you get a money belt to keep your cash and a copy of your passport. You never know when some poor person is desperate enough to rob you. Women are also pretty safe in Kenya. Nonetheless, you should dress modestly. You do not want to catch someone’s eye without reason, so leave your jewelry and unnecessary devices at home. Also, it would probably be a good idea not to travel alone or go out alone at night. It is better to avoid such situations than getting into trouble. Another thing you should know before traveling to Kenya is that some inoculations are in order. For one, you need to get immunized against Typhoid fever, Yellow fever, and of course, Malaria. There are a few other diseases that you should protect yourself against, such as tetanus or hepatitis A, but it is best if you ask your doctor which ones you need. Perhaps you have already had a tetanus shot in the last 10 years and do not remember. The point is that there are quite a few diseases that you can get to Kenya, and if you can prevent them beforehand, that would be excellent. You do not want to ruin your vacation because you could not be bothered to get immunized, do you? When it comes to communication, you should not have any issues. In Kenya, people speak English and Swahili. They get very excited when they hear tourist saying a few words in Swahili, so learning a few formulas could help you make more friends. However, if you do not have the time, English is just fine. You will be able to communicate with people in Kenya. This is especially important when it comes to guides. There are some strict rules when it comes to safari, and you need to be clear on every single aspect. Speaking of guides, you can explore some of Kenya on your own, but if you want to see the wildlife, a tour guide is recommended. After all, this is animals we are talking about, and you may not know the proper behavior you should adopt when you encounter them. If we are talking about predators, that is even more so. It is a fact that people have die from not listening to the tour guides. Leaving the wildlife aside, we should probably cover the food and drinks. From what we can tell, the water in Kenya is okay to drink. However, if you have a sensitive stomach, you may want to go for bottled water instead. If you want to just brush your teeth, tap water is just fine. Drinking, on the other hand, should be handled with caution. As for food, Kenya is not famous for any dishes. Not that we know of, at least. Even so, people in Kenya eat a lot of grain such as couscous and rice. They add a side of fish or other meats. But what you will love is the seasoning. Kenyans know how to season their food, and surely you will find it delicious. While we are still on the subject of food, you should probably avoid street vendors. This rule applies to many countries, and Kenya makes no exception. Street vendors do not always cook their food in sanitary conditions, and it is very easy to get sick from that. However, if you see a bunch of people, locals or foreign, that they stay in line to get food from a street vendor, you could probably eat there too. Crowded lines are always a sign of tasty and healthy food. If you have the chance, you should try and learn something about the tribes in Kenya. They have some exciting stories, and if you ask your tour guide, he can take you there and see how the tribes live. You will hear a lot of interesting stories. There are only two tribes in Kenya that tourists know of. The Massai and the Samburu tribes. They lead very simple lives, but they seem to be very happy. Their way of life will make you think about how complicated your own life is. But even so, visiting one or both tribes will be an interesting experience for you. Kenya is not a rich country. Not in wealth, anyway. However, it does have some wonderful places you can see. The wildlife and the insects are something you can stare at all day long, although we recommend that you get bug repellants. The people are friendly, the tourism there is cheap, and you can have an incredible experience. If you go on safari, surely you will want to come back. Who knows? Maybe you will choose the best time to catch some of the Great Migration. It is something that you need to witness at least once in your life.
