East Africa is a safe and secure destination, however, it is a good idea to take a few precautions.
Whilst visiting your doctor, it is a good idea to review your current state of health, the medication that you are taking and any allergies that you may have. After you have received your injections, keep your immunization certificate together with your passport.
Yellow fever vaccination is required for travellers arriving in Rwanda from all countries. Travellers arriving at Kigali International Airport without a valid yellow fever certificate will have to pay $40 for a vaccination on arrival.
Much of East Africa is at altitude and the sun is hot. Particularly if you are fair skinned, you may burn easily. It is therefore necessary to take precautions by applying high factor sunscreen and to stay out of the direct sunlight. We would advise you to wear a hat whilst you are out in the mid day sun. Please use plenty of high factor sunscreen, try to stay out of the direct sunlight and drink plenty of fluids.
