Nairobi is the capital city of Kenya, and one of the most popular cities in East Africa. It is also a hub for business travellers who fly in to use the city’s spacious conference venues.
You can visit Nairobi any time of the year. However, Nairobi generally has two cold and wet seasons that are from March to May and October to mid - December.
Nairobi's extensive public transport network makes it easy to move around the city. The vans and buses can be boarded from the main bus stops within the city centre. Taxis can be expensive despite the introduction of online platforms to request for a cab.The main reason is due to the notorious traffic jams especially at peak hours. Motorbikes and tuk tuks are a great choice for short distances as they are much cheaper than taxis but les comfortable.
There are two airports in Nairobi. Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is the country’s main international airport. For domestic flights to other towns in Kenya, several airlines operate from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport. Nairobi is also served by several modern infrastructural networks that link it to the Great Rift Valley, the coast and to the central region of Kenya.
