Kenyan Shilling Exchange Rate

Have a love affair with Africa

If Africa beckons you, a trip to Kenya won’t lead you astray. With a rich tribal culture, the golden plains of the Masai Marah, parades of elephants at Amboseli National Park, Africa’s second highest mountain – Mt Kenya, and an abundance of iconic sights, natural wonders and fascinating culture, you’ll fall in love with Kenya in a heartbeat.

Instead of worrying about your foreign exchange when you get there, why not let us sort it out for you. While we don’t stock KES in our stores, we can arrange a special order for you – just give us a bit of notice before your trip, and let us sort out all of your travel money needs.  The Kenyan Shilling is known locally as a “bob”, and it is subdivided into 100 cents. It is one of the most stable currencies in East Africa, maintaining fairly consistent rates against the USD, EUR and GBP.

There are no restrictions on importing and exporting local and foreign currency when going to and from Kenya, but for any amount over US$5,000 (or equivalent), you will be required to show documentation that shows the source of the money and its purpose.  Why not get in touch today – find out our buy rate for KES against the AUD and place your order in advance of your trip.
