Hi, I am planning to travel to Kenya to Nairobi. Does anyone know what should i be vaccinated on?
Thanks in advance .
I am off to Kenya for a 8 days safari tour in a weeks time, staying in 2 camping parks. We will be going to Selenkay, Amboseli National Park and Masai Mara National Reserve.
Everything is already paid for so when we get there we are only going to have to pay for drinks, tips etc and one meal on the first night. Can anyone give me a rough estimate on how much money we may need to take with us? And also what the best currency to take with us is? I know that we can buy the visa on arrival (British passport holders), i have read the it costs $50 £30 40€.. but others have said to pay in dollars, can anyone confirm if i can pay in GBPs please?
What is the general rule for tipping as well please?
Thanks in advance :)

my name is jolie. I am 24 and from Paris, France. I want to volunteer abroad in Kenya. Preferably near to Mombasa, Nairobi or Nakuru. Now I am not sure. It is not so easy to find the right volunteer project for me.
I visited some websites:
I also visited some directories:
I found http://www.the7interchange.com/ but here I have to pay a fee to register online :(
I also find also the volunteer platform www.teamsocialwork.com They are listing 12 Projects in Kenya and don't take fees to register online. Maybe I will try it here to get in touch with projects.
Now my question: Before I choose one of these. Anyone experience with one of these organizations or platforms or volunteer directories? Thank you for your help
warm regards from paris,
Not because of non-accessibilty places, but, because of cultural "stigmatisms", regarding people with disibilies. a trip to kenya, actually. does anyone have any first-hand knowledge of this? please, be genuine about your answers. thank you.
what do you prefer doing while in malindi?
I am planning a trip to Kenya for June 2014 for me and my girlfriend. I have arranged more trips by myself and am used to do it step for step. My plan is as follow: Flying to Nairobi, have 1 week for safari, fly to mombasa and stay a week at the coast. Planning the last week is not that difficult, but I have problems with planning the first week.
I read a lot about the different national parks, but I donot read how much time to spend in each park, which parks are the best and complementary to eachother. I like to see a lot of big wildlife, but I'd rather see an elephant, a leopard and a rhino than 50 elephants. Which parks are different and will be a good itinerary.
My first suggestion is as follow:
Day 1: Arrive in Nairobi
Day 2: Heading towards Mount Kenya
Day 3: Mount Kenya - Samburu NP
Day 4: Samburu NP
Day 5: Samburu - Nakuru
Day 6: Nakuru - Masai Mara
Day 7: Masai Mara
Day 8: MAsai mara - Nairobi
Is this a good route, or is Masai Mara not necessary in june (because the migration isn't started) and is it better to replace Masai Mare by Hell's gate or Naivasha?
Hi, I'm planning a split safari / beach holiday the first two weeks in November but I've since learned this is the short rainy season. Has anyone been in November? Is it a case of a downpour for 10 - 15 mins a day, which drys up instantly or is it likely to rain for longer periods, most days?
I'd really appreciate your advice if you have been there at this time of year?

How much time should I allow to get to the International airport at Nairobi from arrival time at Nairobi Wilson Airport to get to check in at the International airport given usual luggage etc clearance times at Wilson and traffic conditions to the International airport. Thanks
Please let me know if you have used this company. They designed the perfect safari for us, but it seems too good to be true, especially the price. I have been searching for months to find a safari that goes to both Kenya and Tanzania and had been warned not to book one until we are in Africa and to use only those companies that belong to either KATO and/or TATO. According to their web site, they have no affiliation with either, but I would really like to use them. Please help me make this decision by letting me know if you have experienced their service. I appreciate any advice you have to offer. This will be our first trip to Africa, and I want it to be all that I have been dreaming about for over 50 years. Thank you very much!
