    Nairobi airport: any lounge?

    Nairobi Aug 15, 2015 at 6:39 AM

    I know the airport is not yet fully re-constructed. Is there a lounge there? If yes, how much would it charge? I am having 6-hour transit time and would like to rest a bit in early morning.
    If not, are there other places/shops to kill time?

    No visa on entry to Kenya - visitors will now have to apply for an e-visa in advance, with processing days taking as much as a week. A grace period has been extended but only for two months, during which time tourists arriving at Nairobi or Mombasa can still get their visa on arrival, until September 1. No more under the new rules the payment in cash, now payment for visa must be made by credit or debit card! Last minute travelers are no longer welcome in Kenya! For visa requirements check at

    how do tour operators operate from nairobi??

    Kenya Jun 8, 2015 at 11:55 PM

    there are numerous tour operators in nairobi offering safari packages which looks very expensive.....
    once we book with them how do they operate??
    after transfering from nairobi to the hotel in masai mara for example and then will we be using same vehicle for the game drive inside the park??? or different vehicle belonging to the game park??...i guess u need an expert driver who knows where exactly the animals are located in the game park .
    if i book hotel online in masai the hotels arrange game drives this way it will workout cheaper and can get an expert driver to take us inside the park.....
    in simple hotel online and using the game park vehicles better or using tour operator vehicle better...

    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!

    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...

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?
