a t m machines

Hi could you please tell us if their is a A T M machine in the MNARANI HOTEL in KLIFI or where the nearest one is. If not what is the best currency to use locally. As will use card for all trips


Also can anyone tell us if we need the RABIES vaccination because of the monkeys at the hotel.

Hope some one can help us

Thanks a lot

Mnarani does not have an ATM. Nearest ones are in Kilifi town - 5 minutes drive away. Best to use kshs for payments inc. tips. You can also use ATMs at the airport as well.

Neve heard of having to have rabies vaccinations because of the monkey's.

Don't bother the monkeys, don't do anything silly like trying to pet them or feeding them, or especially trying to take stolen food off them, and they won't bother you.

As for the Rabies vaccinations (a course of 3) they do not give you immunity to the disease, they increase the time you have in the event of being bitten or scratched before treatment needs to start. If you have had the pre-treatment you will still need two further vaccinations, if you haven't then you have the full series of 5. As a tourist on Safari or at the coast in Kenya you are never more than a few hours from treatment

The following are extracts from the Health Protection Agency's National Travel Health Network and Centre website

"Rabies pre-exposure vaccine should generally be given to adults and children who are at risk of rabies including

*Those travelling to remote areas where medical care is not readily available

*Those undertaking higher risk activities (e.g. cycling, running)

*Those who are travelling for long periods through rabies endemic countries

*Those at occupational risk e.g. vets, animal handlers, and laboratory workers who handle the virus.
