(1) Arriving in Nairobi at 10:30pm for a booked tour. Is it worth getting an airport transfer to the hotel? Travelling as a couple. I think it'll be cheaper taking a taxi but not sure about safety and illegitimate taxis.
(2) Would you recommend a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti? Our tour is asking $570 which I think is high since people I know booked a ride for $500. Heard it is a "once in a lifetime opportunity" but it is expensive for just an hour and may not see much. Travelling in mid-February.
(3) 12-hour layover: arrive 5pm, leave 8am. Really, it'll be less by the time you clear customs and check-in 3-hours before. Is it worth even leaving the airport?
