We are two hours from Western-standard hospital care. If you become ill, you should tell a duty member of staff immediately – please don’t keep it to yourself! Unlike in the UK, seemingly mild illnesses can sometimes get worse very quickly here and may require hospitalisation. There are also a number of local clinics which can provide basic care – for example tests for malaria and treatment.
Please wash your hands regularly and apply hand sanitiser/anti-bacterial gel. Kenyans are scrupulous about hygiene and you should be too!
