Kenya &Tanzania Adventure

Going on the safari trip to Kenya & Tanzania ,finishing off in Zanzibar .

Any tips on what to take  or what to avoid.

Regarding money was it best to take dollars only? was it easy enough to get the visa to cross into Tanzania ?

We have an extra night at the start in Nairobi, is it easy to get to the Karen Blixen museum?

Are you going on the 13th by and chance? I'm afraid I don't know many answers yo your questions. Exodus themselves told me to get the Kenyan visa online and then the Tanzanian visa when entering. 

Have you been on a camping trip before?


We will be out the day before flying with KLM.

Need to start process of obtaining visa .Are you on your own?We are 2 senior ladies


We're on the same trip then! I'm travelling with my Husband and my Mum and Dad. Thoroughly looking forward to it! We're flying out the first day of the trip. Have you done this type of trip before?

Yes I did an overland trip a few years ago Livingstone Falls, Botswana ,Namibia and down to Cape Town. That was a superb trip although the falls were a bit disappointing as the water levels were low! We saw loads of wildlife so hoping for same this trip.Be prepareded for long journeys and the tents we had were not big  and it is dark!

Dollars tends to be the currency but I am thinking of getting some Kenyan shillings as we are there for a day before we set off.

I am awaiting my passport with visa when I tried to do it on line the I kept getting an error message, so have done it through Trailfinders the company we used to book the trip.


Sorry for late response life just gets busy!Where are you travelling from?

No worries! :-)

We're coming from Essex, you?

We've done a few camping trips before......I love them! Mum and Dad have done loads of them. This is the husbands first camping trip tho. 

We did the Vic Falls from Zimbabwe last year in the wet season. Pretty impressive I can assure you!

I hope they get the error sorted soon........we're doing ours in in the near future. What are your plans whilst you're in nairobi? When we've been before we went to the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. Great place to go......thoroughly recommend doing that if you have time!


It's getting close! You guys will be the experts then having done all these trips!

This trip has lockers rather than just piling it all on the vehicle.Dimensions are not too clear on the trip notes ...i.e width? I plan to take a soft bag but it has a firm bottom and a set of wheels.Have you sorted out your luggage yet I do not want to take a big rucksack.Overall should squeeze in the alloted space.

I believe there are 12 on the trip 5 males and 7 males .Do you know what time innthe morning we start on the actual trip?

Nearly there! Visas and malarone sorted. 

Luggage wise we use the exodus bags most of the time. They're great bags and they're like a tardis. 

Not sure what the locker sizes are. If I remember rightly last time I could get my backpack in it and it' a fair sized back pack. Obviously these could be different though.

I think we land 5ish but don't know what time the trip actually starts!
