Calls between two travellers in Kenya using our SIM Card
The rate for calls between two travellers using our Kenyan simcards is just 2 KES/min. If you are travelling in a party, we recommend that you order simcards for all travellers, so that you can make cheap calls between each other on your trip. To achieve this, just dial the local Kenyan mobile phone number provided with the Kenya SIM Card you receive from us.
As a comparison, it could cost you up to €6/minute to make calls between two foreign mobile phones if you don't use a local SIM card in Kenya. The international roaming charges at both ends mean that the caller and receiver both end up paying astronomical charges for the call. It only takes a couple of minutes to regain the cost of your sim card kits if you're both using Kenyan sim cards.
Make calls within Kenya and topping up call balance
There is just 50 KES initial call balance on the sim card, but you decide yourself what
amount you'd like to top up when ordering from us.
The call credit is used for outgoing calls, text and internet packages.
Top Up vouchers is bought together with the SIM Card from us, and can also be bought in kiosks and supermarkets across Kenya.
The Kenyan SIM Card is valid 90 days from the last top up, so it can last forever as long as you top up at least once every 90 days.
