Cheap Flights to Nairobi

See all departure points

Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is a large and constantly growing city. It has a fascinating history having been built at the end of the 19th century and then burnt down and rebuilt not long after, its impressive train system providing the logistics to keep it alive. There is a very large Indian and Pakistani community here descended from the labourers and engineers who built this industrial marvel. Two excellent places to learn about the city’s history are Nairobi National Museum and the National Railway Museum; both are well worth heading to when you get cheap flights to Nairobi.

Kenya is famous for its safari parks and wildlife, and there are plenty of tours of places like Lake Naivasha and Nakuru National Park available after getting flights to Nairobi. The Nairobi National Park is closest to the city and is home to many animals including lions, rhinos, zebras and giraffes. There are also several animal orphanages in the area where baby animals that were orphaned by poaching are looked after. Further out, the Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park is centred around a mountain forest where you can see many primates and birds.

A multicultural and busy place, Nairobi has many great restaurants to eat at, and areas such as Westlands and Hurlingham will keep your belly very happy. Although it’s advisable to stick to bottled water instead of tap water, you can certainly have an alcoholic drink or two when out sampling Nairobi’s lively nightlife in places like Parklands and Westlands.
