If arriving Kenya and traveling by road to Tanzania/Zanzibar... YES, you will require Visas for both Kenya USD$50/person and Tanzania USD$100/person (if US passport holder) or USD$50 most other nationalities. Visas for both countries can be purchased on arrival at airport or land borders.

If only transfering, no overnight or leaving airport, then no Kenya visa. You are considered 'in transit'.

Tanz visa - $50 US in newer than 2006 (some say 2009) bills.
