    First time visitor

    Nakuru Mar 8, 2015 at 2:09 PM

    My 17 year old daughter has the opportunity to visit Nakuru in Kenya with her college. While there she will spend time volunteering in a school and also visit some places of interest in the local area as part of a tour group. I would be interested to hear people's experiences of this area and in particular in regards to personal safety and vegetarian food. Many thanks.....

  • Mombasa- safety

    Mombasa Jan 19, 2015 at 5:40 AM


    I'll be visiting Kenya next month and I would love to see Mombasa, even for a day.

    Most Western governments issue warnings for terrorism etc. Are these warnings legitimate? Will I be unsafe visiting Mombasa?

    Obviously, I understand there are risks in visiting most large African city, but I don't exactly want to do something that would be stupid. Looking for some fresh info if anyone has!

    I will be in Kenya on official travel in March and would like to stay afterwards to see the country. My mother will also join me. For security reasons (we're two white women), I thought it would be better to join a tour. I'm interested in visiting Masai Mara, lake Nakuru, etc for about a week. Anyone can recommend a reliable and not too expensive tour?

    Hi all,

    I was planning a little bit of a Kenya add-on to my Tanzania trip, but it seems that safety concerns are cited almost everywhere.

    Am I correct to be avoiding travel to Mombasa and Lamu during this period? (the end of the year) I understand as a Westerner I attract attention, but quite frankly I'm beginning to get slightly concerned by the repeated warnings...

    Hi, We are going to the Masai Mara and would like to know if the 80 dollars for entrance fee have to be paid for each day that you are inside the park. If we drive to one of the Lodges inside the reserve and stay there for 4 days, do we pay 80 dollars times 4 at the entrance? don't the lodges include the entrance fees? what happens if later we want to stay longer? Do we also have to pay extra for driving a car?
    Thank you!!

    Hi, I am currently working on a project in the Masai Mara area, but would really like to see the animals in the park. Is it possible to just arrange transportation to the park, pay entrance fee and arrange a game drive there? Most safaripackages are very expensive and include daylong drives to Nairobi. Is there a way to avoid this, but just arrive there?

  • 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!.

  • 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
