Hello - does anyone have experience spraying clothing with permethrin? Do you think it is necessary, in addition to DEET and malaria prevention medication?
Premium Email Subscriber May 16, 2015 at 01:38 PM

I went last January--WONDERFUL trip; i had DEET, but did not spray with permethrin. We ran into a swarm of tetze flies and got a few bites on exposed hands; but no real problems.
Michele Brandenburg May 16, 2015 at 03:56 PM

We've sprayed our clothes plus some of our clothing is pretreated by the manufacturer. Did this for the Amazon & Aftica. Also, wiped our skin with DEET & took malaria meds.
Mary Raynard May 16, 2015 at 03:58 PM

Thank you both - very helpful!

I'm on the 9/23-10/7 trip, traveling alone out of Chicago on KLM. I'd like to connect with others taking this trip.


Peter Sylvester May 08, 2015 at 04:23 PM

I'm traveling 8/19 thru 8/2. I'm interesting in contacting other on the same dates.


Donna Rupp May 01, 2015 at 11:21 AM

I am enrolled for the trip scheduled September 16-30. Traveling alone, Id love to find a female to room with. I'm not much of a talker, but ready for an adventure. Former elementary teacher/librarian. Any takers?

The RS website says website says "Current regulations allow you to re-enter Kenya from Tanzania using a "single entry" visa."
However, GenVisa tells me we need to add another $50 for a 'multiple entry' visa.
Anyone know for sure?
Barbara Marschke Mar 21, 2015 at 07:08 AM

Charmaine, if you go to kenyaembassy.com, you will see that you only need a single entry visa. You can get it directly from them as well.

I am thinking about this trip, just having returned from another southern Africa trip. My travel clinic would not give me the yellow fever vaccine, citing my age (over 60) but gave me a waver instead--which so far has been okay but I would like to know if anyone else (also over 60) has actually been able to get the vaccine and how were the side effects?
Patricia Rice Mar 17, 2015 at 11:01 AM

You will need the yellow fever vaccine. You will not get across the border into Tanzania without it, and then you will not get back into Kenya without it at the other end of your trip. No side effects . Get the Vaccine before going on this trip.
Charmayne Bischel Mar 17, 2015 at 11:19 AM

3 in my group have gotten the yellow fever vaccine. No side effects. We're all over 70.
Patricia Rice Mar 17, 2015 at 03:09 PM

Most of the people on our trip were over 60 and they all had the yellow fever vacc. Now reported side effects. There were 12 on our trip.
Patricia Rice Mar 17, 2015 at 03:10 PM

Nobody reported side effects,

Charmaine, My husband and I are also taking the July 13-27 trip. We are flying out of Seattle.
Charmayne Bischel Feb 14, 2015 at 06:51 PM

Nice to meet a fellow traveler! I think there will be just 12 of us - so 2 from Portland & 6 from Georgia. With the 2 of you that leaves just 2 unknowns. Carolyn & I are flying out of PDX on Delta to Amsterdam & then Nairobi - arriving 8:10 PM on the 14th.
Kathi Erickson Feb 14, 2015 at 07:30 PM

We are flying American via London arriving at 8:45 on the 14th. I am hoping a one night layover will be enough of a break from the confinement and dreariness of the flight.
Charmayne Bischel Feb 14, 2015 at 07:46 PM

8:45 PM? Carolyn & I do not have an overnight - just the 2 1/2 hr. layover in Amsterdam. But we did Australia/NZ this last year & did ok with the flights. Slept most of the time actually. Looking forward to meeting both of you! Are you actually from Seattle, or nearby?Kathi & ??
Kathi Erickson Feb 14, 2015 at 08:18 PM

Fortunately, both Charles and I are able to sleep on planes, but nonetheless, I feel wiped out, in need of a good stretch, a long walk and a shower after several hours of flying. We actually live near Tacoma. If you are a follower of golf, our house is near the Chambers Bay Golf Course. The U.S. Open is being held there this June.
