Kenya is +2 hours from GMT, only +1 hour from Continental Europe.

Vaccinations and Medical Advice:

No compulsory vaccinations are required for your entry visa. The prophylaxis against malaria is optional but advisable especially if you are planning on going on safari in one of Kenya's National Parks.
On location, we have a European standard private hospital just minutes away from WaterLovers, which provides 24/7 medical services all year round, in case you need medical attention during your stay in Diani.

Climate

Kenya benefits from the tropical climate at the coast and temperate climate inland. Temperatures at the coast range between a pleasant 25C - 30C at day and at night. The day and night temperatures in the National Parks can vary noticeably.
Even during the hottest months, the temperature is evened out by the constant trade winds.
There are two wet seasons per year, the long rainy season lasts from May to June and the short rainy season is usually in the second half of November. The driest and hottest months of the year are January and February.

Clothing

Sun glasses, a sunhat and protective sun lotion are useful in all coastal regions. On safari, we highly recommend that you dress in practical outdoor clothes, one warm set for the chillier nights and early morning game drives, a comfortable pair of closed shoes and mosquito repellent.

Currency

The Kenyan currency is called Kenyan Shilling; one Euro is equal to about 100 shillings. Major credit cards are accepted everywhere and it is possible to change Euros and Dollars at the bank in walking distance from WaterLovers. ATMs for foreign bank or credit cards are also available.

Tips

Tipping staff and tourist guides is standard behaviour.

Shopping

Local handicrafts offer a lot: statues and wood masks, naf paintings, cotton "batik" and "kikoy" cloths, ethnic jewellery and typical Massai spears and shields.

Language

The official languages are English and Kiswahili.

Voltage

Electric power is 220 Volt with the UK-style 3 exit sockets with square plugs. Every kind of electric device can be used with the simple adaptor available in your room.

Communication

  • Telephone - Although most European mobile phones are able to establish a connection in Kenya, calls can easily become exorbitantly expensive due to roaming. WaterLovers offers a cheaper solution by providing Kenyan SIM cards. You can use these with your mobile phone to make both local and international calls. Prepaid credit is available for purchase in numerous shops in walking distance from the hotel. The international code for Kenya is +254.
  • Internet - WL provides a complimentary WiFi connection and an internet point is available at the reception for our guests (free of charge).
  • Audio Station - WL suites are equipped with audio station for Ipod, Iphone and other MP3 players.
