Kenya has much to offer for visitors. There is the renowned scenery of the Great Rift Valley, coffee plantations at Thika and view of Mt Kilimanjaro which reaches across the board into Tanzania. Don't forget the multiple photo safaris through 19 national parks and game reserves and also the beaches along the Indian Ocean.

Getting There

There are no direct flights from Australia to Kenya, so you'll have to stop in places like Qatar or Johannesburg depending on which flight company you choose to travel with. That's not always a bad thing though. Why not spend a couple days exploring South Africa on the way right?

Where to Stay

Head to Mombasa, there along the south coast you will find popular beach destinations like Diani Beach. If you're more interested in the wildlife, Kenya also offers a range of game lodges for your enjoyment.

You might be too distracted with the safaris and beaches and forget all about sexy times.. then again, maybe not.

Sex in other Cities Tipsheet
  • Be particularly careful in Nairobi
  • Watch local media and avoid local protest and political rallies
  • Smartraveller strongly advises no travel to the border regions of Ethiopia, South Sudan and Somalia because it is considered extremely dangerous.

Sex in Other Cities is all about enjoying healthy sex while away. A major part of this is mutual consent. Good sex is when two people are in agreement and both willing. One night stands and getting in the sheets are fun. Remember to stay safe. Use a condom. Go with your gut instinct. If you're unsure the sex worker is of age, its best to walk away. Don't put yourself at risk of sexual assault charges.

What could go wrong

High threat of kidnapping and violent crimes against Westerners

Similar to other hot sex tourist destinations, Kenya's sex industry is rooted in poverty; among the young, poor and often uneducated. This may lead to less understanding about sexually transmitted infections and inconsistent condom use. So, HIV is something to be very mindful of and condom use is highly recommended. Often in Kenya, children fall victim to the sex tourism industry. So we highly recommend double and triple checking that a sex worker is not under age and there by force.

Want to know more?

Sex on holiday happens.

Whether planned or not, away from home we lose at least some of our inhibitions
and may take more risks than we would at home. 

This is ok, it’s what makes travelling so exciting.
Accepting this before we go is the first step to planning.


To help you get home with no more than a bruised bank account
and awesome memories, here are some useful tips:


  • Carry condoms. Pack condoms before you leave home. Condoms aren’t always readily available or good quality so grab some before you leave and carry a supply in your handbag or wallet. Holidays and a sense of freedom doesn’t make you less susceptible to STIs so take care every time you have sex.
  • Have an STI test before you go and after you get back. Click here for testing locations.
  • Sex workers in other countries are not always in a safe environment or hold the same standards of safer sex and STI testing as they do in Australia. Use condoms and insist on using them.
  • Holidays can encourage us to try drugs and drink more alcohol than we might at home. Your body is still your body, regardless of where you are – know your limits and keep to them. Drugs and alcohol can impair our ability to keep our wits about us and recognise dangers – in a foreign place this becomes even more important.
