Flight Luggage & Travel Information
To make it easy for our guests we will spend our first night in Nairobi. This will allow us to adjust from any jet lag, get a good night sleep, and prepare for the adventure ahead.
All flights should be booked to Nairobi arriving on September 28th.
If you are flying in on Air Kenya or Safarilink to Nanyuki you will have a maximum luggage restriction of 15kg including hand luggage. If you are carrying large, heavy bags such as camera equipment it is recommended that you book two seats – allowing 30kgs of luggage or else travel by road. Also try and use soft case bags instead of hard case bags. These are easier to transport.
Most countries, including the UK, USA, Canada and Australia can obtain a three-month tourist visa to Kenya on arrival in Nairobi. This costs USD50. They wont accept any other currency and be sure to carry the exact amount as they are almost always out of change. (not induced in costs)
Language: Swahili & English
Timezone: GMT +3hrs

The currency of Kenya is the Kenya Shilling, often written as KSH or with a /= symbol at the end of a figure.
Our adventure is fully inclusive so you won’t need to pay for anything in cash whilst you are here. (except your visa upon arrival) However, if you decide to make donations at Chimpanzee sanctuary, school, purchase curios and tips you will need to carry with you for that. USD are widely accepted, best to carry in smaller notes if you can, as are Kenya Shillings.
