Yes. South African citizens are allowed to travel to Kenya since this country opened its borders to international travelers in 2020.
Blessed with stunning natural features, pleasant weather all year round, and a diverse range of species, Kenya is one of the most popular destinations for many tourists in the world. The number of visitors to Kenya is expected to increase from 900,000 recorded in 2021 to more than 1 million owing to the reopening of tourism. Traveling to Kenya, South African travelers have opportunities to enjoy unique safari tours, bask in the beauty of nature, and explore the natural habitats of wild animals such as elephants, rhinos, African buffalo, and giraffes.
To have a trip to Kenya, South Africans must consider obtaining a visa before departing. A visa-exempt of up to 30 days is granted for South African citizens, so they do not need to get a visa for trips less than 30 days. However, an eVisa is available for South African nationals who intend to remain in the country longer and explore the peaceful landscapes that Kenya has to offer.
In addition, South Africans are recommended to purchase travel insurance
before traveling to Kenya because it can help protect their benefits during their Kenya trip. Up to US$ 50,000.00 (Fifty thousand US Dollars) is covered by this travel insurance, offering affordable emergency protection for medical, transportation, or trip interruption should unexpected occurrences happen during their Kenya trip.
