Flights to Nairobi

Kenya is synonymous with safari (the word itself is Swahili – Kenya’s national language). Start at the beginning: fly to Nairobi from the UK where a number of wildlife experiences await – and that’s before you’ve even left the city.

Flights to Nairobi with British Airways are frequent and convenient, making travel to the Kenyan capital easy. Don’t miss experiencing the city’s celebrated nightlife; eat out at its many top restaurants, such as Carnivore –excellent for eat-as-much-as-you-like game meat, or do as the locals do: visit a nyama choma – hugely popular gathering places for roasted goat meat and beer. When it’s time to venture further afield, Kenya’s top attraction, the unforgettable Maasai Mara National Reserve, is just 170 miles west.
