You can access Kenya from any part of the world by way of flights to Nairobi or Mombasa or even on a cruise ship that dock on the island of Mombasa. Since many international flights cater to global travelers, you could find varied options from Europe, America, Asia, Middle East and Australia. Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in the south of Nairobi is Kenya’s main hub. Moi International Airport in Mombasa is an alternate airport but this base is used more for domestic and chartered flights with beach holidayers and also for flying in and out of Zanzibar and other regional areas within East Africa. Advantageously, few international airlines like Turkish, Qatar, Ethiopian are now using the secondary Mombasa base to offer lower cost flights to Kenya. The “Pride of Africa”, Kenya Airways, provides domestic, regional and international travel from Nairobi and Mombasa. Wilson Airport in Nairobi is the base for domestic and safari park flights but also serves few regional destination airlines within East Africa. Using Wilson Airport as a base, you can book scheduled or charter flights to reach the main lodges and camps in the many reserves and parks in Kenya. Lightweight aircraft with either single, twin or four engines that can carry 3 to 50 passengers are available via AfricanMecca, and these planes can land on the private airstrips closest to your safari accommodation. Upon landing, your guides will meet and transfer you to your camp or lodge for check-in.

If you would like to travel to Masai Mara, Amboseli, Samburu, Laikipia, Meru and other wilderness park destinations within Kenya or East Africa, it is most convenient and cheaper to fly from Nairobi Wilson. Destinations like Masai Mara and Amboseli are also accessible from Mombasa but with high flight costs due to the distance and lack of competition. You have the option of taking the train, and there are services that operate between Nairobi and Mombasa on fixed days and are usually overnight trips. Although, Kenya has a network of 1284 miles (2066 kilometers) of railway tracks, the operation service is dismal, and you are likely to experience delays, cancelled trains with inadequate accident insurance coverage for travelers. The cabins and customer services are of deprived standards. Buses connect the main towns of Kenya and most common Kenyans prefer to use them, but you also have the option of travelling by heavy duty safari vehicles like Range Rovers, Jeeps, Land Cruisers and other 4 Wheel Drives. Driving yourself is also an option but only recommended if you have experience driving in the East African environs since high traffic and road accidents in Kenya are prevalent. If you intend to do so knowing the risk, you need a license issued by the Kenya Road Transport Office that is valid for three months for visitors. Or you could get an International Driving License before arriving in Kenya. Do remember, though, that Kenyans drive on the left of the road and the speed limit for a public service vehicle is 50 mph (80 kph) on highways and 18 to 30 mph (30-50 kph) in built-up areas, towns and other city areas.
