How safe is the drive from Nairobi airport to the Masai Game Reserve Area?
Hi. NExt month I am coming to nairobi . I will stay there 3 years. first of my question is about car. In my country if you are foreign you can buy the car from foreign to foreign and you don't pay any taxes. Because of this these cars are cheaper according to the peers. May I buy a car this type... ıf not how are the car prices. I will need a small car when ı come to nairobi. and what about the rental house prices(in muthaiga especially).? I will need a small house(1 bedroom) and of course must be secured. and you think should I rent with furnitere or free hose and I get the furniture. Thank you for answers.
what is the cheap rate ticket to mombasa destination from london i need to know more cheap rate than Euro Africa Travel
I have to go out of East Africa because my visa is expiring, and I would like to go to Ethiopia. The problem is that if you have to go by plain is to expensive, and going by ear you have to pass to some regions that maybe have tribal fights.. So my question is, is it safe to travel from kenya to ethiopia by matatu? What do you guys think?
Any decent happy hour spots in Nairobi?
Maybe a strange place to start looking for family, but my great grandfather stayed in Nyeri for a few years somewhere around 1910. His name was Jan de Vries. At that time he was an unmarried young man. Now I'm wondering if there might be family in Kenya that I don't know of. Maybe someone can help me with this. Thank you very much.
I am planning an overland tour departing on 13th of February (in just 2 weeks!) On several fora I saw mixed comments, one found AA wonderful and the other horrible. Does anyone have experience with this tour and operator?
Thanks a lot!
Hi, I would like to know the best way to get to Lamu, from Watamu. Is it worth to book a flight? How reliable is the bus trip and how much it costs? Where do the buses depart?
I'm hoping you can help. I'm going to Kenya at the beginning of February and will be spending 10 days there. I'm flying out from the UK to Nairobi to visit a friend who is working there.
This will be my first time in Kenya so I'm keen to see as much as possible (although I realise that 10 days is nowhere long enough, it's all I have so I'll have to try!). We'd like to do the classic safari/coast and possibly some time in Nairobi itself and have pencilled in a rough itinerary as follows:
- Fri AM - fly from Nairobi to coast - Mombasa/Malindi?
- Sat - day at coast (Mombasa/Malindi?)
- Sun - day at coast (Diani beach?)
- Mon - day at coast (Diani beach?), fly back from Mombasa
- Tues - safari (Masai Mara? Drive/fly?)
- Weds - safari
- Thurs - safari
- Fri - drive/fly back to Nairobi, spend day in Nairobi and meet friends
- Sat - day in Nairobi (Karen Blixen museum, elephant orphanage, giraffe centre)
Also interested in Nakuru/ Naivasha (cycling in Hell's Gate etc.) but not sure where we could fit that in!
Could anyone please offer advice on things we should include/omit? Totally open to suggestion and working to a budget of around £500 for the whole of the trip (flights have already been paid for).
Thank you so much!

We two persons from Romania are going to Kenya for a safari holiday at the end of this Month, January 28th. We will be taking the 9-day ( e-safaris.com/our-safaris-an... )safari package from e safaris Kenya. We really like this itinerary but cost is a bit prohibitive. We are looking for two or more people to share the costs. We are not rich but we would like to experience a Kenyan safari. We arrive Nairobi on the night of 27th January.
