    • How long does it take to get a transit visa at Nairobi Airport?

      Nairobi Jul 17, 2014 at 4:12 PM

      My daughter travelled to Kilimanjaro airport via Nairobi airport last Sunday. She was told that she wouldn't need a transit visa, but because she was flying different airlines into and out of the airport she had a nightmare trying to get her baggage! She did manage to get it finally but she ended up in departures really late with no boarding pass and still carrying her hold luggage and had to argue with the person on the gate for a long time before they finally allowed her to board the flight. Very stressful for a 19 year old!
      She wants to avoid the same problem on her return but doesn't have a lot of time between flights - hence the question.
      Appreciate any help anyone can give!.

      Hi, I am travelling in about two weeks time from Dubai to Nairobi and onwards to Masai Mara (Keekorock Lodge) by Safarilink flight. I heard that they have issues with baggage storage in the Safarilink flight. Does anyone know the flight can take in a normal soft top Delsy Suitcase ? Or are we supposed to carry only small bags ? Some guidance will help. Thanks

    • Nairobi to Arusha/Mwanza

      Nairobi Jul 2, 2014 at 8:46 AM

      Hi all, I realise my question is very similar to Wawszczyk so I am sorry for the repition. I will also be flying into Nairobi and hoping to get a bus to Arusha and on to Mwanza. My problem is that most reviews and forums say that buses only make this journey twice a day 8am and 2pm. My flight arrives in Nairobi at 13.40. Does this mean I will need to stay a night in Nairobi and get a bus the next day or does anyone know of any bus/shuttle companies who begin the journey at a later time.

      Thanks for the advice

      I am flying into Nairobi and need to get to Arusha for a safari. Precision Air flies from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro but have read some pretty bad reviews about their service. There is also a bus service but I am unfamiliar with border crossing procedures and admittedly a little apprehensive. Any advice and experiences would be greatly appreciated.

      Moyale to Nairobi

      Kenya May 17, 2014 at 1:19 AM

      Hi everyone
      I'm seeking advice on taking the bus from Moyale to Nairobi. I know there's a thread below concerning the safety of this journey but I was wondering if anyone had any information regarding the alleged direct bus that is now operating on this route. Some of the more up to date posts around various travel forums indicate that such a bus leaves every day at 7am and has an armed guard aboard. Has anyone any experience of this? I've also read that the roads are greatly improved now making the journey more comfortable - is this true? Any advice would be great guys.
      I'd quickly like to thank croisbeauty and sphynxxs for their help so far.

    • Safe travel from Diani to Mombassa Airport

      Mombasa May 16, 2014 at 3:07 AM

      Hi,

      I am going to a friends wedding in July in Diani beach. We were planning on getting the overnight train from Nairobi-Mombassa for the experience and then flying back from Mombassa to Nairobi (flights already booked and paid for).

      However, in light of the recent FCO guidance changing, I'm a little nervous to go through Mombassa Island. I'm considering booking a flight down from Nairobi to Diani with Airkenya. Since I have already booked the return journey from Mombassa aiport, does anyone know if there is a way of getting from Diani to Mombassa Moi airport without going through Mombassa Island?

      Thanks in advance.

    • Lake Bogoria water levels

      Lake Bogoria May 11, 2014 at 4:46 AM

      Hi,

      My partner and I are planning a trip where we'll be spending a few days in Kenya at the tail end of it. We thought of going on a tour to Lake Nakuru and Bogoria but have read so many stories about rising water levels and flooding. Does anyone have information to offer as to whether or not a tour to these places are still possible? Admittedly things could get a lot worse between now and June, when we're traveling, but also imagine tourism is a vital source of income for these communities and so would still like to go if this still seems reasonable.

      If it seems like a poor idea, are there any other attractions that you'd recommend for a tour over a couple of days
