Getting In and Around Kenya
The fastest way to get to Kenya from Nigeria is via a direct flight on Kenya Airways. It takes about 5 hours to fly directly. Other airlines, such as Ethiopian Airlines and RwandAir also operate flights to Kenya.
Kenya offers an e-visa to Nigerians seeking to visit for tourism. You may apply for a visa through this site. The eVisa costs $50 + a $1 card processing fee.
Kenya is an all-year-round travel destination but be aware that it has two seasons - the rainy and dry seasons.
Generally, April and May are the wettest months and the dry seasons (which fall between the months of June to September and December to March, sans climate change) are better for safaris and viewing the great migration.
Getting around in Kenya is easy. Uber and Bolt operate in the bigger cities and you can easily hop into a vehicle or a "boda boda" (motorcycle) to get to your destinations. You'll also find lots of bodas around the country.
Alternatively, renting a car or jumping in a matatu (public bus) are options available to you.
