You can get Kenyan visa at border.
In Nairobi, you must get your Ethiopian visa before heading up to Ethiopia.
I'm not sure if you can get a Sudanese visa in Nairobi - border areas accessible from Kenya are closed/restricted I believe. So you have to take your chance, go to Addis Ababa and first get your Egyptian visa, then head over to the Sudanese consulate and acquire the 14day transit visa. That's what's worked for a number of recent posters, myself included.
BTW - there's a BMW car/bike dealer in Windhoek - they had 21 and 17 inch tires last time I was there.
