British Airways has frequent flights to Nairobi. Flights land at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, ten miles southeast of Nairobi. Take a taxi into Nairobi's leafy city centre after Nairobi flights land and you'll soon see why Nairobi is dubbed the Green City in the Sun. Leave Nairobi's skyscrapers behind and take a stroll through Uhuru Park or visit Nairobi National Park, where lions and giraffes enjoy views over central Nairobi.
After your flights to Nairobi, take a taxi for the 20-minute journey into Nairobi's city centre. Negotiate the fare into Nairobi with one of the taxi drivers waiting outside Flight Arrivals. Or arrange a hotel shuttle bus when you book your accommodation and flight to Nairobi. You can catch a public bus after your flights to Nairobi but this is not for the faint-hearted or the novice traveller - taxis are quicker, less risky and certainly less crowded.
If you want to walk off those air miles after your flight to Nairobi, head to lush Uhuru Park, encircled by Nairobi's shiny city buildings. Immerse yourself in Kenya's history, culture and art at the Nairobi National Museum after your flight to Nairobi. Or visit the Karen Blixen Museum to see the famous Danish writer's former home. Sip a gin and tonic in a colonial-style bar then turn your sights to shopping before catching your flight from Nairobi. Scour the markets for traditional fabrics, woven bags and souvenir carvings, or visit Nairobi's community craft centres to shop for handmade beaded jewellery.
