Malaria Risk & Vaccination Information

What is the risk of malaria in Kenya?

The risk of Malaria is very high throughout the whole of Kenya, but small in Nairobi and in the highlands (above 2500m) of Central, Eastern, Nyanza, Rift Valley and Western Provinces. Note that there can be a high risk in valleys of the highlands.

Because of the very high risk of malaria in Kenya antimalarials are advised. Please remember to also follow the bite avoidance measures below.
