Nairobi -
Getting There & Away

Kenya's capital city, Nairobi, is served by the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport - the largest and busiest airport in East and Central Africa. As the major travel hub for East and Central Africa, Nairobi has been dubbed the Safari Capital of Africa and is also the main commercial and cultural centre in the region. Flying to Nairobi is often your cheapest option for getting to other destinations in the region, especially if you're coming from or via Europe. Nairobi is also the cheaper option from North America, travelling via European cities, and from Australia, flying via Asian or Middle Eastern hubs. 

Arriving in Kenya you will fly into the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), located about 18 km east of Nairobi. The airport to city transfer takes about 15 to 25 minutes or longer, depending on the notorious traffic flow. For most nationalities you can fill out visa applications before arriving and get your visitors visa on arrival at the airport, paying in cash (about USD50) with most major currencies and avoiding long queues. This convenience does not however apply to all nationalities or multiple entry visas (about USD100) which need to be obtained at an embassy back home - be sure to check.

If you plan to travel between December to March (peak season) you will need to book well in advance and can expect flights to be more expensive than during the rainy season when availability is better.

From the airport you can catch a taxi to the city for about USD20 - first agree on a price. Alternatively you can hire a car, with rentals at about USD70 per day. Private transfers and public buses also operate at the airport. The bus is your cheapest option (under 5USD), but there are no dedicated stowing areas for your luggage and the bus stops in the city centre, from where you will need to take a taxi. Unlike taxi services and private airport transfers, buses don't run throughout the night. 

The Wilson Airport, south of Nairobi, serves as a hub for reasonably priced domestic flights with various airlines, including Airkenya which also flies to Kilimanjaro International Airport in Tanzania. Several budget airlines, such as Fly540, also fly from Jomo Kenyatta to local and regional destinations, as well as Kenya Airways. 

Catching a train from Nairobi Railway Station is an affordable option, with daily trips running between Nairobi and Mombasa and Kisumu. First and second class passages offer sleeper coaches and there is also a general class for the intrepid on an extreme budget. Tickets can be purchased in Nairobi or online. Another affordable and reliable means of travelling overland is to take a bus from Nairobi to other cities in Kenya, but this is a slow and often cramped way of getting about. Long-haul bus and shuttle services run from the Nairobi airport to a number of popular tourist destinations, including Arusha in northern Tanzania.

The airport lies about 15 km south-east of the Nairobi city centre and is named after Kenya's first president.

There are about 55 airlines operating at Jomo Kenyatta International, offersing direct flights to and from some 67 cities worldwide. These airlines offer direct flights between the Nairobi International Airport and major hubs in Europe, the Middle and Far East and some 50 countries on the African continent. Airlines include Ethiopian Airlines, Air France, Air Kenya, British Airways, Egypt Air, Etihad Airways, Fly Emirates, Kenya Airways, KLM, Lufthansa, Qatar Airways, Swiss International Airlines and Turkish Airlines.

Kenya Airways is the national airline, travelling from and to destinations across Europe, the Asia-Pacific area and Africa, as well as within Kenya itself.

The main terminal consists of three zones - two for international flights and one for domestic flights. Taxis, buses, private shuttle services and car rentals are available at the airport.
