I'm flying to Zanzibar via Nairobi with Kenya Airways. Land at 5:05pm and the connecting flight with Precision Air is at 7:05pm. Is this enough time to connect and when in transit do you need to go and claim baggage and go through customs? Can the bags be checked for final destination?

How long does it take to get a transit visa at Nairobi Airport?  (2 Answers)

My daughter travelled to Kilimanjaro airport via Nairobi airport last Sunday. She was told that she wouldn't need a transit visa, but because she was flying different airlines into and out of the airport she had a nightmare trying to get her baggage! She did manage to get it finally but she ended up in departures really late with no boarding pass and still carrying her hold luggage and had to argue with the person on the gate for a long time before they finally allowed her to board the flight. Very stressful for a 19 year old!
She wants to avoid the same problem on her return but doesn't have a lot of time between flights - hence the question.
Appreciate any help anyone can give!.

what is the best way to get from Nairobi airport to Arusha Tanzania?  (9 Answers)

I am flying into Nairobi and need to get to Arusha for a safari. Precision Air flies from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro but have read some pretty bad reviews about their service. There is also a bus service but I am unfamiliar with border crossing procedures and admittedly a little apprehensive. Any advice and experiences would be greatly appreciated.

Nairobi to Arusha/Mwanza  (4 Answers)

Hi all, I realise my question is very similar to Wawszczyk so I am sorry for the repition. I will also be flying into Nairobi and hoping to get a bus to Arusha and on to Mwanza. My problem is that most reviews and forums say that buses only make this journey twice a day 8am and 2pm. My flight arrives in Nairobi at 13.40. Does this mean I will need to stay a night in Nairobi and get a bus the next day or does anyone know of any bus/shuttle companies who begin the journey at a later time.

Thanks for the advice

Hiring a car that is suitable to explore the Aberdares and Central Highlands  (6 Answers)

Hi
We'll be spending a few days in Kenya in mid December on our way back from Pemba and want to hire an affordable vehicle that's suitable to explore the Aberdares and Central Highlands.
There will be four of us - two adults and two children - plus our luggage (a couple of large cases and sundry hand luggage).
Can anyone recommend a reliable yet affordable company to hire from? And what sort of vehicle should we hire? We don't want to go to the expense of hiring a 4WD if it's not necessary, but don't have a good enough handle on road conditions to make a judgement call one way or the other.
Regards
Cathy
