Travelling to Kenya
- Almost all visitors from abroad fly in. Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta Airport (NBO) is the main port of entry for international flights, and it has excellent connections to most other parts of Kenya and many other African capitals. Some carriers also operate international flights to Mombasa Moi International Airport (MBA).The national carrier, Kenya Airways, operates an extensive network of flights to and from major cities in Europe, Asia, and elsewhere in Africa.
- Most major international carriers operate direct flights between their home country and South Africa, among them Air France, Air Mauritius, British Airways, EgyptAir, Emirates, Ethiopian Airlines, Etihad, KLM, LAM Mozambique Airlines, Lufthansa, Malawian Airlines, Oman Air, Qatar, Rwandair, Royal Air Maroc, South African Airlines, Swiss International Airlines and Turkish Airlines and Virgin Atlantic. Particularly coming from a major European city such as London or Paris, there might be dozens of indirect options, and you can save a lot of money by shopping around.
- It’s possible to enter Kenya overland from the neighboring countries of Ethiopia, Uganda, and Tanzania, but you’d only be likely to do so as part of an extended overland trip through Africa or if you were doing a multi-country safari.
