Kindly do contact the Kenyan consulate in U.A.E Dubai or the Kenyan Embassy in Jordan as am not sure they got an office in Damascus.

I have a US passport. If I enter Kenya for two weeks, then depart to Madagascar for a week, and then return to Kenya, will I need to get 2 visas??
A single-entry visa costs USD50 and a multiple entry visa USD100. So in your case it won't make much difference whether you buy 2 single entry visas or one multiple. And yes, those are rather expensive visas!
