Does Kenya have a time out like Shengen? And if it does, can I still go to Uganda or Tanzania and go back to Kenya?
Simply put, will this work out ok?
1. Use up my 3 month stay in Kenya, then leave the country.
2. Take 3 months in Tanzania, leave the country
Take 3 months in Uganda, then when Uganda expires, leave the country, go to Kenya again.
Will this work?
Hi! I would like to travel from Fes to Chefchaouen (or perhaps Chefchaouen to Fes) in April or May. What's the safest way to travel between the two cities? Every time I get on a long-distance bus in a mountainous country, I swear I will never do it again. What route do the buses take, what time of day do they run, and what are the road conditions like? Should I be concerned about road safety? Thanks in advance.
