About Kenya

Exploring Kenya goes beyond wildlife and landscapes; it involves engaging with diverse cultures. Respect for local communities is paramount. When capturing moments, always seek permission, especially in rural areas and Mombasa. Carrying a consent form and expressing gratitude with “asante” (thank you) is considered courteous when publishing photos, even on social media.

Exercise particular sensitivity around children and vulnerable individuals. If permitted to take a photo, show it to them afterward. Thoughtful consideration should be given before visiting schools or places where your presence might be unconventional or inappropriate.
