  1. You're right. It depends on which countries they went through on the way and on the way back. I hope they have a great trip without any border issues.
  2. Yes she could be denied. It is one of the options available to the border guards - or quarantined or vaccinated depending where she had come from. It is also worth considering the risks of travelling to a yellow fever risk area without vaccination and while immunocompromised. Is a change of itinerary a possibility? She could consider making contact with the Kenyan embassy before she leaves and check their requirements. She could also be denied entry into other countries after leaving Kenya.

  4. I'll be following along too - after our self-drive African adventure next year we want to do an extended drive through South America a few years later.
  5. Those crocodiles were quite something to watch! Have a great trip next year!
  6. I am always way too eager to get where I am going!! The sooner the better!
  7. We fly from Brisbane and have used both SAA and Qantas in the past. Our last trip was with SAA and the timing was actually better for us as it left Brisbane around 6pm and we landed in Johannesburg (via Perth) early morning and so could continue on to Victoria Falls which was our destination, avoiding the need to overnight in Johannesburg. Next trip we need to get to Arusha, so I imagine Emirates through Dubai and Nairobi will probably be the best.
  8. Who do you fly with @@Geoff? Is it Emirates who go through Dubai into Nairobi?
  9. What a great trip you had! Lovely images and heaps of useful information - thank you. I am going to have to pick your brains re self-catering before our big trip next year.
  10. Thanks @@Peter Connan - I'm glad you like the new route. We'll save Swaziland for another trip.
  11. Thanks for this great report @@KaliCA - I'm reading it now while planning our self-drive trip. We are considering doing Tanzania as a self-drive now before we fly south and start the big loop.
  12. Great tips and info thanks @@hubertj and @@penolva
  13. Thanks @@hubertj - were you happy with the Bushcamper? It looks great, although the fridge seems small.
  14. Hi @@Treepol - at this stage we are planning a few days each at the Bangweulu Wetlands, Mutinondo and Kapishya before heading in to Malawi. We'll be there in early May. We won't make it to Ruaha - maybe next time! How are you travelling? With a guide or on a tour?
