Health & insurance

Medical Services

Nairobi has plenty of health-care facilities that are used to dealing with travellers and expats, which is a good thing. Avoid Kenyatta National Hospital – although it’s free, its resources are stretched.

AAR Health Services Probably the best of a number of private ambulance and emergency air-evacuation companies. It also runs private clinics at various locations around Nairobi, including in Westlands.

Acacia Medical Centre Privately run clinic in the city centre.

Aga Khan Hospital A reliable hospital with 24-hour emergency services.

KAM Pharmacy A one-stop shop for medical treatment, with pharmacy, doctor’s surgery and laboratory.

Karen Hospital One of Kenya's best private hospitals.

Nairobi Hospital One of the city's largest hospitals. It's off Argwings Kodhek Rd.

St John Ambulance Ambulance services.
