In travelling to Kilimanjaro Airport, my friends and I took a flight from Singapore to Mumbai, staying for a 8 hour transit there before flying to Nairobi for a shorter transit of 2 hours. We then took a one hour connecting flight to Kilimanjaro from Nairobi. Unfortunately for us, our flight from Mumbai to Nairobi got delayed by 2 hours. As a result, we missed our connecting flight from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro. More worryingly, our next flight out from Nairobi would be 9 hours later, at 8 am.
In other words, we would be spending an unscheduled night in Nairobi, Kenya. This post chronicles our experience and the claim process upon return to Singapore. We were enroute to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and do a safari tour (see Part1 and Part2) after that.
