Kenya is located in Eastern Africa. When traveling to Africa on Safari you will need an adapter to use your appliances. Whether you are only visiting one place in Kenya, or are going on Safari across the country, these adapters will work for all of your United States appliances.
In some cases, when traveling to Africa, you will also need a converter.
If you are traveling to surrounding African countries such as Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Uganda, you may need additional adaptors.
Adapter plugs allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter) unless your appliance is dual voltage. A non-grounded adapter may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter. If your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor is not dual voltage you will most likely need a converter to use your electric. For more information see Going In Style's Adapter and Converter Finder.
Many of our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup.

About Dual Voltage Power Strip with Built In Surge
NEW Kenya Standard PLUS Adapter Kit includes a travel powerstrip and grounded Kenya adapter plugs. A grounded Kenya adapter plug is necessary to plug your travel power strip into Kenya electrical wall sockets. Kenya uses three different types of adapter plugs throughout the country. Remember that the power strip does not convert electricity and dual voltage battery chargers, smartphone chargers, hair dryers, and other electric devices need to be DUAL VOLTAGE.
Travel power strip is dual voltage and has complete 3 line surge protection. Plug in your United States / North America appliance plugs into the three AC outlets. Foreign electricity can have unexpected power surges and voltage spikes that can damage expensive electronics and appliances. If you are traveling with a laptop you will want to make a safe connection and surge protection is recommended.
When you get to destination country you can plug your travel power strip into the countries wall sockets with the grounded adapter plug included in the Standard Plus Kit. Travel Power Surge Strip allows you to plug in three United States devices and two USB ports simultaneously. That means you can power your laptop while charging your cell phone and camera battery pack. Additionally the power strip has two 5V DC USB outlets with auto cut off auto reset overload protection so you can charge your cell ipad via the USB port and safe the AC outlets for other electronics.
Travel Dual Voltage Power Strip with Surge Protection has a North America US plug, however you can plug it into any wall outlet world wide with the correct earthed adapter. The Standard Plus kit not only includes the power strip but also the grounded adapter needed to plug your power strip into foreign countries wall sockets. Travel power strip with surge protection is dual voltage and will work world wide. However, this power strip DOES NOT convert voltage so your appliance will need to be dual voltage or a converter is required. Powerstrip is included with the Standard PLUS Travel Adapter Kit. Kenya grounded adapter is needed to plug the travel power strip into Kenya electrical wall outlets.
Compact design and space-saving cord management system make it easy to take with you on all your trips. Use the Power Surge Strip to keep electronic devices charged and ready to go at all times. Already have an adapter plug for your destination country? Shop for just the travel power strip.
**IMPORTANT: The Travel Power Strip DOES NOT convert voltage. Your AC devices MUST be rated 100-240, 110/220 or 120/240VAC to use them on foreign 220-240VAC electrical systems.
Travel Power Strip Features:
- Complete 3 Line Surge Protection

Grounded Adapter Plugs
If you are traveling with a grounded United States dual/multi-voltage appliance or using a grounded Transformer you will need to use a grounded adaptor plug. A grounded United States plug has two flat blades and one round pin.
Non-Grounded Adapter Plugs
Going In Style offers non-grounded adapter plugs for use with your voltage converter, transformer, or dual/multi voltage appliance. A non-grounded United States plug has two flat blades.
Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.
Kenya operates on 240 volt electricity and is generated at 50Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. United States 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. This difference in cycles may cause the motor in your 60Hz United States appliance to operate slightly slower when used on 50Hz foreign electricity. Most modern electronic equipment including battery chargers, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba computers, iPods, etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.
Make sure to check your device to see if it is dual voltage before you leave on your trip.
Computers and Apple Products
If you are traveling overseas with a Toshiba, HP, Lenovo, Asus, laptop or Apple device such as an iPad, chances are you won’t need a voltage converter. Most laptops are multi-voltage and will operate on voltages ranging from 100 to 240 volts. However, computers do need to make safe connections to foreign power systems and a surge protector is recommended and you will still need an adapter to use your plug.
Converter- Changing Current Voltage
Going in Style adapters allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. Adapter plugs DO NOT convert voltage and only change the configuration of the pins. When voltage conversion is needed, use an electricity converter. An electricity converter changes the voltage input into your appliance. The United States electrical appliances operate on a lower current of 110-120 volts AC (Alternating Current). Most of the world operates on 220-240 volts AC. Therefore converter units enable your electronic and non-electronic appliances to run on foreign electricity (220-240 volts) to match the voltage requirements of your 110-120 volt device. Failure to run your appliance with a converter could damage your appliance.
Kenya is located in Eastern Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean, between Somalia and Tanzania and its area is twice the size of Nevada. Its climate varies from tropical along coast to arid in interior. The terrain is low plains rise to central highlands bisected by Great Rift Valley; fertile plateau in west. The Kenyan Highlands comprise one of the most successful agricultural production regions in Africa.
Currency in Kenya is the Kenyan Shilling (KES). Credit cards are widely accepted at hotels, restaurants and tourist destinations. Foreign currency and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks throughout Kenya.
Kenya has an inadequate; fixed-line telephone system is small and inefficient; trunks are primarily microwave radio relay; business data commonly transferred by a very small aperture terminal (VSAT) system. Cell phone coverage is better in large cities. When travelling to Kenya you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Kenya SIM card. You can also contact your mobile service provider to set up an international calling plan. You will need an adapter to charge your phone. Most cell phone battery rechargers should be multi-voltage, therefore will not require a converter. If the charger says 100-240 volts, 50-60 cycles then your charger in multi-voltage.
Kenya has 69,914 internet hosts and over 3.996 million internet users. Internet access is available in internet cafes and larger hotels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
