A number of our tours to Africa start in Nairobi and it is recommended that all travellers starting their expedition in Nairobi get their Kenyan visa issued prior to departure to avoid complications.
PLEASE NOTE: visas for Mozambique can no longer be obtained on the border - you must get your visa in advance if you need one.
You can refer to the chart below to find out visa requirements for other African countries that you may be passing through on your tour.
If a holder of a British, EEC, Australian, New Zealand or Canadian passport, many visas can be procured en route at the border.
Although we update the visa section on our website as changes to requirements come to light, requirements can change suddenly so do check individual status with your appointed travel agent, direct with the embassy or high commission or with a reputable visa handling company. African countries are in a continual state of political flux and requirements can change overnight. Visa procurement remains the responsibility of the traveller and not that of on the go.

To save you taking time off work and the hassle of queuing at Foreign embassies, often for a very long time, we also offer a convenient UK based visa courier service where by we will get your Kenyan visa sorted out for you. It will take 2-3 weeks to get your visa issued.
