Flights To Nairobi

Discover the culture, cuisine, and history of Africa—not to mention its world-renowned wildlife—with flights to Nairobi’s international airport (NBO). Nairobi is a multicultural melting pot and one of the fastest-growing cities in Africa. “The Safari Capital of the World” caters to adventure-bound tourists, but you’ll find charming surprises if you stay for a while. From nyama choma (Kenyan barbecue) to Maasai markets, Nairobi has come a long way from its beginnings as a railway stop.

Transportation from NBO

Nairobi flights touch down at NBO 9 miles southeast of the city center. International airlines will land at Terminals 1 or 2, while Terminal 3 is for domestic planes. There is bus service to the city center, however we recommend taking a taxi or arranging transportation with your hotel. If you take a cab, remember to agree on a price beforehand or take a metered “London-style” cab. You can book one of the hotels near Jomo Kenyatta International, but the area around the airport is mostly residential and traffic into the city center is notorious. Stay in the city if you’re looking for that urban vibe, and live like a local in the Central Business District. This bustling region is home to the Kenya International Conference Centre—which offers the best views of the city skyline—and Uhuru Park, a popular rallying point for everything from recreational sports to gospel choir practice. At the end of the weekly grind, you’ll find the burgeoning business class celebrating Furahiday, a combination of a Swahili word and “Friday” that translates to “happy day.”

Discover Your African Adventure

Make every day Furahiday with cheap flights to Nairobi from Travelocity. Bundle and save when you book your airfare and hotel together with our Nairobi vacation packages. Then kick back and relax with a cup of coffee—and imagine yourself in a Kenyan café drinking java grown just miles away.

It was close to the airport, had a free shuttle, and had really amazing food. Not just the usual dull American fare, but also great African and Indian food in the breakfast and dinner buffets.
