We arrive in JKIA at 6am and leave at 11am Wednesday 3 October. I have read that we can visit Nairobi National Park by the East Gate. The standard half day tours finish at 12 noon which will not fit us.
Will it be easy to hire a taxi on arrival (immigration is an hour I understand) and spend 2-3 hours in the park? We will want to be back at JKIA at 9.30 am latest to go through immigration. We should already have our boarding passes.
Hey lovely people,
I´m planing to hike Mt. Longonot around 9th april. Anyone up to join? (Before I´ll be in Lamu and afterwards I´ll go to Kisumu). Let me know if anyone has the same plans or any recommodations in hiking Mt Longonot alone?
I am heading back to Kenya again this year but have to do things a little differently to normal so asking for a bit of advice.
I am flying into JKIA on Saturday but then out of WILSON on Sunday. Can anyone recommend a transit hotel that has airport transfers? I am travelling alone and have never needed to spend time anywhere but the airport in Nairobi!
Would also like to know roughly how much it will cost to get from JKIA to Wilson.
My husband and I are planning a 3 week trip in East Africa this summer. We prefer to travel independently - rent a 4wd and stay at campsites for most of the time. Our budget is mid-range to low.
Wondering which country would be better for this purpose - Kenya or Tanzania? Since both are beautiful and rich in wildlife, the main consideration is how friendly they are to the independent traveler, in terms of road condition, safety, abundance of good campsites, etc.

I have 6 days in Kenya, late March - starting and ending in Nairobi. I'd like to visit both Masai Mara and Amboseli, and am looking for a budget safari - which means traveling by road, and camping/guesthouse accommodation. However, given the distance between my two destinations I wonder whether it's worth the money to fly between them (ie get to MM from Nairobi by road and back from Amboseli to Nairobi by road... or vice versa). Any opinions on this, and does anyone know an operator…
I was looking around Tom mboya Street for any hotels for under ksh 1500.
The best I could find was Arkland palace hotel with rooms from 1300.
Any more places near by ?
I am travelling to Kenya at end of September, and have up to a week to spend looking around the sights near Nairobi. To include: Lake Naivaisha, Lake Nakuru, Mount Longonot and Crater Lake Sanctuary, Hells Gate, and Nairobi National Park. I have tried looking up tours to these places, but most of them are private tours, and I like to go on the group tours. How can I find these? I won't be wanting to hire a car on my own. Is there any other cost effective way of seeing these places…
I'm planing to fly to either Tanzania or Kenya in September and would like to join a group tour to visit the Serengeti & Ngorongoro Crater. If my budget can stretch to it, I'd really like see some of Kenya too; particularly Masai Mara and Amboseli.
My main purpose is to see as much wildlife as possible. Elephants, giraffes, zebras and hippos are top of my list.
I'll be travelling alone so would much prefer to join a group.
My budget is £1500 (not including flights). I'm happy to…
