Neptune Hotels today announced that Neptune Palm Beach Boutique Resort & Spa will be open again as of today. Since the unfortunate fire incident at end of June have maintenance and construction teams been working around the clock to make this early reopening possible. The resort has been carefully restored and was in fact further improved, using this opportunity to add value to it.
The Neptune team is now looking forward to welcoming back their guests.
The management also took the opportunity to thank their guests and partners for their understanding and messages of support during this trying period.
The Neptune Palm Beach is a 4* boutique hotel in Swahili architecture set in tropical gardens on a prime beachfront location at Diani Beach, Mombasa's South Coast. The 60 rooms are in makuti roofed cottages with only 4 rooms per unit. A the large fresh water swimming pool is at the centre of the resort activities. The main restaurant serves both international and local cuisine while seafood lovers can book a table in the à la carte restaurant Mnazi. The resort is approximately 40 km's south from Mombasa and about 45 km's from Moi International Airport. The nearby Ukunda Airstrip is only about 8 km away and connects this part of the Kenya coast with both Wilson Airport in Nairobi - two flights a day - and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Kenya's main aviation gateway to the rest of Africa and the world.

The wildebeest have arrived in the northern Serengeti and, although a little earlier than planned, Olakira was waiting for them complete with a brand new look for the 2016 season.
So what's new?
Olakira has always been our traditional, down-to-earth migration camp and rest assured - it still is! They have simply freshened up the interiors, replaced the canvas and added new softs, ready for another good few years of outstanding migration viewing.
The main area has a brand new canvas lounge and dining tent and the interiors have been completely re-designed including:
• New sofas, cushions and leather chairs in the lounge
• Foldable bar, library and coffee station
• New dining chairs and cushions
• New covered buffet station
• Brand new, in-room mosquito nets
• New day beds and armchairs
• Lighter, brighter softs including cushions, curtains, rugs and bed frames
• Painted, hanging migration maps
• Two interconnecting tents
• Shared bathroom between the two tents
The Ugandan Immigration Authorities have, with immediate effect, instituted an online visa application. All visas for nationals who previously could get visa on arrival, now you must get the visas in advance. There is a chance that you will be denied boarding of your flight to Uganda if you do not have a visa when checking in at your home airport.
To apply for the electronic visa, please visit HERE and please note that the process could take up to 3 days (or longer in some cases).
During the processing of this online application, you will be required to upload copies of your passport (the section with name, number, expiry, etc.), passport photo and a copy of your valid yellow fever vaccination certificate including the section that shows the date and batch of your most recent inoculation against yellow fever.
The good news is, Uganda have reduced their visa fees to $50.00 for most passport holders.
We have been advised that entry will be denied to visitors who arrive at either Entebbe International Airport or the various land borders without having applied for and obtained an e-Visa in advance.
Cut off is 1st of August, when the parallel system of both e-applications and manual processing on arrival will cease. It appears that airlines have been told to deny boarding to any passengers heading to Entebbe unless they can show proof of having applied for a Visa and obtained one in advance.
A few days ago, Uganda reduced the visa fee for most tourism visitors to $50 per person from the previous $100.
As of the 1st of August will therefore all visa applications have to go through the online process and without exception. It is anticipated that airlines will refuse passengers to board without proof of the online visa duly completed in advance, due to the otherwise heavy fines levied on them for uplifting passengers with incomplete travel documents.

With immediate effect, visitors from China are required to have valid yellow fever vaccination certificates. This is because China has been added to the list of countries endemic for yellow fever.
