“Life-changing! Has to be tried to be believed.”
Baraka House is situated in Watamu along the north coast of Kenya. Our nearest airports are Malindi (25 minutes drive away) and Mombasa (3 hours drive away). Both are approximately 1 hour's flight from Nairobi where most international flights fly into. Wildfitness will be able to organise taxis for you, from and to Malindi will be £15 each way and from and to Mombasa will cost approximately £60 each way.
If you like we can book your flights to and from Mombasa or Malindi and we can also advise on insurance, thereby delivering the whole package in one.
It is cheaper to book both your international and domestic flights together and travel agents such as Trailfinders +44 20 7938 3939 or The Flight Centre +44 2074865585 are a good place to start for the best deals. The recommended airlines flying direct from London to Nairobi are: Kenya Airways (KQ), British Airways and KLM (via Amsterdam).
All visitors travelling to Kenya must obtain a visa (unless you come from South Africa in which case you don't need a visa). This costs US$50 and can be obtained via a travel agent (e.g. Trailfinders or Thames Consular services 02074944957) or the Kenya High Commission (Tel: 020 7636 2371/5). You can also get a visa on arrival at JK Airport in Nairobi which is a reasonably quick and efficient service (US$50 or £30 sterling) and you also need a minimum of two blank pages in your passport.
For visitors to Kenya from UK no immunisations are required by law, however, it is a good idea to take precautions. Yellow fever is mandatory if returning to the USA, Australia and some European countries (consult your GP for more information).
Kenya is a malarial affected area so we advise you consult your GP in regardsing anti-malarial measures.
Vaccines generally recommended for Kenya are: Diphtheria and Tetanus, Polio, Typhoid, Yellow fever, and Rabies.
Please consult your GP for information on all of the above. A good website for travel health info is: www.mdtravelhealth.com
It is mandatory for all our clients to have adequate travel insurance which covers the duration of their holiday. Insurance packages can be found at most high street travel agents or by searching online.
