Staying overnight at Nairobi Airport as solo female traveler?

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

I am an American female and will be traveling alone to Nairobi in December, landing at 23:15.

My flight the next morning to Kilimanjaro leaves at 9 a.m. In light of last month's fire, I am wondering if it is possible and if it is SAFE to stay overnight in the Nairobi airport? Is there actually a place to sit and wait?

Also, if I do stay in the airport, will I always be in the secure area or do I need a transit visa? If my understanding is correct, I don't need any visa for my return from Zanzibar to the U.S. because I'll just be connecting through NBO, yes?

Any advice based on the current situation at the airport would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Kim
