Yes, malaria is a mosquito-borne disease and can be found in tropical and sub-tropical areas throughout Africa. Please visit the CDC website for more on precautions, country-specific guidance and geographic distribution throughout the world: http://www.cdc.gov/Malaria/

Yes. Mosquitos thrive in the tropics, especially if you are travelling to low altitude areas like Mombasa. You need prophylactic drugs.

Yellow Fever too should be of concern to you.
