What to pack –
The climate and weather in Nyeri & Laikipia are very variable due to the altitude. We are on the equator so air temperatures are hot in the midday sun (an average of 27°C) and can sink considerably in the evening due to the 6,400ft altitude. So pack for every eventuality. Swimwear, cotton shorts and trousers, hats, sunglasses, sunblock, a light layer for the evening. Long sleeves are also good to protect arms from the sun. If you are climbing the mountain then our guide will tell you what to bring – ski jackets etc, and cross-trainers are useful for less severe walks, safaris, and bush terrain. A fleece can be useful for these adventures too.
VISAS – you will need a visa to enter Kenya. Visit www.evisa.go.ke and bring the receipt with you if the visa is not issued before your flight. Do this well in advance if possible. They can also be purchased at JKIA immigration. Ensure your passport is in date. It needs to be renewed six months before the expiry date for Kenya.
