Arriving in Nairobi

Plan your flights to Nairobi with Etihad Airways to enjoy the scenic landscape and well-kept wildlife sanctuaries that are home to a number of diverse wild animals. Also, take some time to enjoy and appreciate the rich history and culture of the city.

Plan Your Nairobi Holiday

Nairobi is famous for safaris, and tourism is increasing rapidly in this city as a result, with the emphasis on the summer months. Nairobi is a destination which can be enjoyed all year round, however, with plenty to attract visitors. Museums, religious buildings and the opportunity to sample the way of life in this African city all contribute to its popularity.

You can expect to find a good package if you want to travel to Nairobi in the months of June and July when the temperatures are moderate and the safari season is in full swing. We advise you to book your tickets to Nairobi as early as possible if you want to visit the city during the safari season. Cheap hotels in Nairobi are available during peak season but need to be booked well in advance. For information on flight deals to Nairobi please visit our Deals section.
