Nevertheless, we trust you to travel sensibly. That means taking the following precautions:

  • Always travel with cash, a charged phone with airtime, enough water and some food.
  • When you fuel up your car, know where the next gas station is.
  • Always park your car at a private parking lot.
  • Do not go wild camping.
  • Do not travel after dark (6PM) – fellow road users in Kenya often have no lights or put on their high beam lights so you can’t see a thing.
  • The biggest mistake travelers make is wanting to cover too much ground in one trip. Travelling is a great deal slower than you are probably used to, and being on the road is much more tiresome.
