Electricity and charging

Electricity and charging
  • Kenyan electricity network is of 240V/50Hz and the socket-outlets are of UK type. (For more info visit here.)
  • We advise you to bring your adapter if you need one. However do not worry if you forgot yours, as international adapters are easy to find in the country (e.g. in electrical equipment shops and supermarkets). Some hotels can also provide you with an adapter or a European type extension cord.
  • Many camps and lodges in national parks have a generator to provide electricity and generator is usually switched on only during morning (from 6.00 a.m to 10.00 a.m.) and evening (from 6.00 p.m. to 10.00 p.m.) hours. Due to the limited charging possibilities in such places we advise you to bring extra batteries, power banks or solar chargers as well to make sure the battery of your camera or phone does not finish when you most need them.
  • We also advise you to bring a torch or headlamp in case there is power cut-off or the generator is off.
