This Kenya getting there guide will provide you with useful information on how to reach Kenya.

By Air

Kenya Airways is a viable choice for reaching Kenya. Better known as KQ, it is the national airline and is well connected to international cities like Dubai, Amsterdam and Mumbai. Regional scheduled flights are also available to Johannesburg, Cairo and Accra. Other international airports include the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, situated in Nairobi, Moi International Airport, Mombasa and Eldoret International Airport. You will first arrive at Jomo Kenyatta after flying into Kenya. KQ is well connected to other Kenyan destinations like Malindi and Mombasa. Kenya Airways also has direct scheduled flights to Hong Kong and China.

By Train

This option is not available as Kenya does not have the passenger train service which connects to other countries. However, cargo lines are available.

By Road

Kenyan roads are poorly constructed. You can also reach Kenya via neighboring countries like Ethiopia which passes through the border of Moyale and Uganda via Busia. Avoid the overland routes which pass through the northern deserts. These road routes are unsafe and are considered as lawless regions. Vehicles passing through these routes travel accompanied with an armed convoy.

By Bus

Scheduled bus services are available for reaching Kenya. Some of the bus services include Nairobi (Kenya) and Arusha Tanzania. Other services are available from Mombasa and Dar-e-Salaam. Opt for the Akamba bus service as it is considered as to be one of the reliable services on these routes.

By Boat

Boat services are limited to Lake Victoria. Services are also available to coastal areas like Mombasa to Zanzibar.
