      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...

      Scorpio Villas

      by sheldon77 Online Now Feb 13, 2006 at 8:49 AM

      Hi again, I'm off to malindi at the end of April and am staying at the Scorpio Villas resort. The resort sounds wonderful, as they always do and I have read some good reviews about it in earlier years. Unfortunately, any recent reviews seem to be very negative and I'm a little dissapointed. These reviews were dated Jan 2006, and I was wondering if anyone has been there around this time and would like to comment on their stay. I'm hoping the negative views of a few people don't apply to everyone who has stayed their recently.Any reviews. positive or negative would be much appreciated. Thanks.

      I am considering booking a 1 week vacation at this resort as an add on after 2 weeeks on safari in September 2005. I would appreciate any information on their experience with this resort. I know it is not on the beach but understand they have a shuttle to town and their beach. How is the accomodation quality and safety. We are used to travelling in 5 star (north american standards). Is Malindi a relatively safe place to visit? Thanks to anyone who cares to share their thoughts.
