For a modern and exciting city with a wild edge, book cheap flights to Nairobi with Globehunters today!

While it’s a vibrant and interesting city to visit in its own right, Nairobi is also a great base for an exciting safari adventure in Kenya, with the Nairobi National Park located only a 9-mile drive away from the city centre.

The park is home to a whole host of exotic animals such as giraffes, baboons, cheetahs, lions, rhinoceroses, ostriches and zebras all roaming freely in their own habitat, with the city skyline in the background.

A little further away you’ll find the Ol Donya Sabuk National Park, set amongst a mountain forest and home to many species of primates and birds.

Other attractions include the former home of the author Karen Blixen which is now a museum, as well as plenty of water sports, shopping centres and markets to explore, and once the sun goes down there are lots of restaurants, cafes and bars too.

While lots of Nairobi may seem very Westernised, with lots of skyscrapers adorned with corporate names, there are still plenty of examples of traditional African culture to be found, especially in the markets.

So for a modern city which is only a few miles from the spectacular wilds of Africa, compare our cheap flights to Nairobi here at Globehunters.

We are proud to offer first class flights and business class flights to Nairobi as well as economy.

The Airport

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO)

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is located in the Embakasi suburb, about nine miles south-east of Nairobi’s central business district.

While you can hire a car to get to your destination, the roads can be very busy and a bit crazy at the times, so we’d recommend taking a taxi from the airport, but be sure to agree on a price beforehand.

Many hotels will also offer an airport pick up service.
