Greetings: I lived in Kenya two years, returned ot the US just a couple of years ago. You are lucky to be going, Kenya is a lovely place.

It is very easy to be vegetarian in Kenya because of the large history of the Asian (Indian) population there, many of whom have been traditionally vegetarian.

Are you going as a worker or a tourist? If the latter, just about every restaurant and safari lodge has a great Indian vegetarian selection, usually in a buffet. If you don't see it right away, just talk with the wait staff and chef.

If you are going to be working and living in a village or similar, then you will be eating a LOT of ugali (corn meal mush) with sukuma wiki (collard greens) and beans. In this case, carry you favorites with you (granola bars, cereal etc. which are available in Kenya but expensive because they are imported)

Supermarkets and small groceries in Kenya are abundantly stocked. The local produce is fantastic, fresh and flavorful. You must NOT miss the local pineapples.

You can buy just about anything you need locally.

You will have no difficulty being a vegetarian in Kenya.

Have a great trip!
