Hi all ,
I was hoping we might be able to get some advise on a very sore issue with us. My husband and I are traveling from Frankfurt (from US) to Nairobi (via Cairo). We arrive NBO at 4:00AM. We have just been advised from our safari tour operator that our hotel shuttle service (included in package) does not depart from NBO until 8:00AM - 4 hours AFTER our arrival. Apparently, our alternative is to pay $400.00 one way for private transportation but we cannot leave until 7:00AM as local laws do not allow for tourists to be transported any earlier?? Does anyone know if this is true? Needless to say, we'll be exhausted after all the air travel and would prefer to not have to hang around an airport for 4 hours. Does anyone have any suggestions on alternatives? Know of any other private transportation that might be less expensive? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Bummer is our return flight a week later from NBO back to CAI departs at 4:45AM!!! Thanks in advance!!
