I understand that Kenya has recently rolled out a new e-visa system, and I have registered on the e-citizen site. My issue is that the only option is for a single entry visa, and advertises the East Africa visa as coming soon. I emailed to find out when "soon" was, but no response.
I will arrive in Nairobi mid OCT, and plan on over landing to Uganda and Rwanda. Any suggestions on what to do, if I can not get an EA visa online prior to arrival? I do not want to pay for each country individually…
Police officer (corporal) at security checkpoint - access route to Moi Airport Mombasa, Kenya instead of conduct security search of the vehicle and verifying insurance and technical condition of the vehicle, asked how much i paid for the transfer to airport in addition to he requested money from a taxi driver.
thank you kenya, never again
I will be visiting Kenya/Tanzania dec 2015 and looking on the internet I see lodges at £300 plus per night minimum. .i really do not need or want anything as flashy as this at all .they brand themselves as the authentic and quintessential safari experience .Surely there must be something much much cheaper and simpler . I am happy with the most simple of accom camping and sharing is absolutely fine ;nor do I need the top parks or have a burning desire to see the TOP 5 . I have…
Visitors to Kenya have been getting their visas on arrival at the ports of entry to the country. At the beginning of July, the department of immigration introduced e-Visa which is applied online and issued within 48 hours from the time a complete application has been made. This has been running concurrently with the visa on arrival. The department of Immigration had announced that the visa on arrival will be terminated at the end of August and eVisa would take over.
e-Visa was introduced to make…
I am currently traveling through the Laikipia region of central Kenya. I have been to the Lewa Conservancy, and Ol Pajeta. Which other conservancies in the area people recommend seeing?
Can anyone provide a link or documentation clarifying whether the $80 fee purchases access for a single calendar day or for a 24-hour period beginning at time of entry and ending 24 hours later?
my girlfriend and I are going to Kenya on a budget trip for 5 weeks this November and December. We also plan to go to Mount Elgon. We cannot find any recent reviews or information about hiking to the top, all is about climbing. We are in fair, fit condition. We would like to know:
1. What difficulty it is to hik to the top on the Kenyan side?
2. How long does it take? 1 day up and 1 day down? Or longer?
3. Do you need a guide to hike to the top? Or can you do it by youself?
Should we stay in Westlands or Karen for three nights after we land before heading on safari? Our safari company will do airport transfer to Wetlands hotel but not Katen. In addition we would have to leave for safari from their office on Westlands. We want to see many sights though that are in or near Karen: Katen Blixen museum, bead center, Nairobi National Park and some others. Also want to see the national mus which is in Westlands. Would like to have some good restaurants near where we stay…
I just came back from my Mount Kenya hike. It was amazing. I had a great guide, great weather and it was a phenomenal price. I went with a local company to climb. It was only $280 for me since I am a Kenyan Resident and Student, but for the foreigners who did not have residency status and student pass they paid only $550. This included guide, porters, lodging all nights, food, cooks, entrance to the park and many other things. The company had gear to rent if you needed it.
I took Sirimon and…
