As a British passport holder you’ll need visas for Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia. You don’t need to apply for them by post. I was advised that it will be cheaper to wait and get them on the borders. My intial thoughts were that I didn’t want to be the one person out on tour that everyone was waiting on. Apparently most people get their visas for Tanzania and Zambia in the same way, and I can sort my Kenya visa on when I arrive at the airport in Nairobi.
