When is the best time to book a flight to Nairobi?

To ensure you get the cheapest price possible for a flight to Nairobi, you should look to book at least 51 days in advance of your intended travel date. The price of your flight may increase if you delay and leave booking until a week or so before departure.

Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi, is a bustling, jostling, lively, energetic and sometimes deeply frustrating place to spend time. It is one of the youngest cities in East Africa, gaining prominence in Kenya only after the advent of the railway. Today, flights to Nairobi are packed with tourists keen to head off on safari and explore the nature of Kenya’s plains, but few choose to stay long in the city. This is a great shame, for Nairobi, though unarguably dangerous, has much to offer tourists.

Nairobi is a commercial city, and a visit to see life taking place in the business district is a must. The city’s buildings seem very Westernised, with skyscrapers and a range of corporate names emblazoned on restaurants and cafés. But the life that takes place in these surroundings is anything but. Spend some time shopping for souvenirs and you’ll soon encounter a typical African culture.

There are few major tourist sites, but those booking Nairobi flights are usually keen to see the Nairobi National Park and to take a stroll down Kenyatta Avenue. For those on their way to safari lodges, the Sheldrick Animal Orphanage is a popular spot, with orphaned baby elephants often in its care.

Almost at 1.8km (6,000 feet), Nairobi has sunny, warm summers and cool winters with chilly evenings.

August and September, though, are marked with overcast, drizzly days.

When is the best time to fly to Nairobi?

Peak Season:

Nairobi’s main season is January and February when it is hot and dry. June to September is also a popular time.

Off Season:

The two wet seasons are March to May and October to December, with the most rain from March to May. The city is much quieter and cheaper during these periods, yet there is not enough rain to stop you from getting out and around.

Getting around Nairobi

If you want to take advantage of public transport after your flight to Nairobi, KBS bus 34 departs regularly for the centre of town. But most people arrange to be picked up via their accommodation or hire a taxi. Bargaining for cheaper fares is common in Nairobi, so sharpen your negotiating skills before you hop in a cab. If you take a Mercedes taxi though, be aware that there is a fixed rate to hotels in the city’s centre. 

Once you’ve made it into town, it’s easiest to take a taxi or matutus (shared cabs), but many sightseeing spots are within walking distance and buses crisscross the city as well. Trains and buses arrive daily from Mombasa and Kisumu. If you’d like to travel out of Kenya to Uganda or Tanzania, a bus or shuttle is your best bet.

What is good to know if travelling to Nairobi?

  • Nairobi National Park is in the middle of the city. The park covers 117 sq km and is home to lions, leopards, rhino and buffalo. The park has more than 80 species of mammals and the park claims to have more species of birds than there are in the entire British Isles.
  • The Karen Blixen Museum opened in the 1980s. On view is the colonial farmhouse with furniture and personal items that belonged to Blixen and her husband.
  • Shop at the Blue Market, which is near the Covered Market, a great favourite of tourists.
  • The Giraffe Manor, 30 minutes from the centre of Nairobi, claims to be the only place in the world where you can feed and photograph the giraffe over your breakfast table, at the front door, and from a bedroom window. The adjoining Jock Leslie-Melville Nature Education Centre, is better known as the Giraffe Centre. Visitors can take a guided walk through its forest.
