Safety on bus from Tanzania (Arusha) to Kenya (Nairobi)?

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 21:47:42 GMT

Hello to all. I will be travelling with friends to Tanzania and I was thinking of possibly extending my stay and crossing on my own (woman) from Tanzania (Arusha) to Kenya (Nairobi) to visit a friend. Do you know whether this could be challenging/not a secure option? I have had contradictory opinions, some suggesting me to fly instead. Also does anyone know how the situation looks like in Nairobi, now that Kenya is approaching the elections? Also cholera-wise...? Thank you! ... [Posted by stepadou - Jul 21, 13:47]

Children flying Emirates to South Africa

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 08:34:37 GMT

If you are flying to South Africa with children and without one or more parents on the childs birth certificate expect Emirates to deny you boarding even if you comply with the paperwork set out by the South African Embassy. Emirates denied boarding and would not refund - with paperwork that was considered acceptable by South Africa on a previous trip with another airline. AVOID them in these circumstances as they will not care or be helpful at all - they claim ... [Posted by iansorby - Jul 12, 00:34]

Self driving in East Africa

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 00:47:05 GMT

Hello, does anyone has experience regarding self-driving through East Africa? We will start a round-trip for 2.5 month in about 2 weeks, that will take us from Nairobi to Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania back to Nairobi. We've read several blogs and reports and are confident, that we can do the driving ourselves with great caution and patience. For a safari, we would always take a guide for several reasons (a.o. not get lost, find the animals...). Unfortunately, we couldn't find any reports re ... [Posted by IvoS - Jun 30, 16:47]

Is 3000 Euros for a 21 travel tour in South Africa too much?

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 16:04:25 GMT

Hi Guys I'm planning to travel to South Africa in a few months time. I have a short question for anybody who's been there on holiday. My question is: Would you pay 3000 Euros for a 21 day holiday in South Africa? It's through a touring company. I've done some research on this 3000 Euro package and it seems nice and I should be happy with all the accommodations, towns we visit and activities. Nevertheless, I would just like to know. Would you pay ... [Posted by LongTom9 - Jun 28, 08:04]

Maputo - New Year's Eve 2018

Hi, My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to Mozambique (Tofo Beach) over Christmas/New Year this year. We would fly home from Maputo at 9:20am on New Year's Day so need to stay in Maputo on New Year's Eve night so we figure why not join in the festivities?! Does anybody know much about NYE celebrations in Maputo, particularly: * Is it safe to go out on the streets or is it better to go to an organised hotel event? * Any particular ...

Touring around Jordan in late October?

Mon, 01 May 2017 06:44:44 GMT

Has anyone any experience of touring around Jordan in late October? We have a week's break, and would like to combine about a week of touring the major sites (Amman, Petra, Wadi Rum, Dead Sea) with a few days of snorkelling in Aqaba. I have researched the air and water temperatures in Aqaba (about 26 and 24 degrees respectively), which seem pretty comfortable. Has anyone been there at that time of year who can give feedback? Linked to this, does anyone have recommendations ... [Posted by harbinger - Apr 30, 22:44]

South-East Africa tour assistance

Thu, 11 May 2017 00:34:15 GMT

Hello, I am planning to travel to South-East Africa sometime around November and as I am a female travelling solo I must admit I am a little nervous and have decided to do a tour with a company (disgraceful, i know). I have found 2 that I like and need some assistance/encouragement on which to pick. There is a 23 day tour with Top Deck or a 30 day tour with Tucan Travel. Both around the same price and both visit the ... [Posted by bunnies7 - May 10, 16:34]
