Flying to Nairobi

Nairobi , the capital of Kenya, has a population of over 3,100,000 people. It is a political and economic centre for Kenya as well as all of East Africa.

If possible, visitors should go on a safari in Nairobi National Park or Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park, just over 60 kilometres outside of the city. The parks are home to hundreds of species of birds, large cats, zebras, rhinos and more.

A great place to visit is the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. It is just by Nairobi National Park and is a rescue shelter for young elephants and rhinos affected by poachers.

Nairobi can be reached domestically by trains from Mombasa and Kisumu, buses running from many of the larger cities in Kenya, or by flying, which is the easiest approach.

The major airport for Nairobi is Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (Airport code NBO), or Nairobi International Airport. With around 5,000,000 passengers travelling through each year, Nairobi International Airport has the highest passenger traffic of any Eastern African airport and is the sixth busiest African airport. It is only 15 km from the centre of Nairobi.

Around 30 airlines fly regularly scheduled routes from Nairobi International Airport, including Kenya Airways, KLM, Air France, and American Airlines, who fly the most frequent routes. Kenya Airlines also serves the most destinations. Most of the major international carriers serving Nairobi International Airport only fly to one major airport in their country of origin. The airport is a hub for Fly540 and Kenya Airlines.
