While on an African safari, you are forgotten by your tour guide and left to fend for yourself amongst herds of migrating elephants. Luckily, your phone has reception, so you can call for help.
Unfortunately, you don't know any local Kenyan emergency numbers.
Oh well, 911 will just have to do.
For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Kenya or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Kenya SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.
A prepaid Kenya SIM card with a GSM international cell phone is the most convenient and economical solution while you travel in Kenya. All incoming calls while in Kenya, regardless of where they originate, are free. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in Kenya like you do at home. And unlike home, your Kenya SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

Starting at just US$ 9 (with credit included!), these cards represent good value for travellers interested in having only one SIM card and phone number to cover multiple countries, whilst keeping roaming charges in check.
