Advice on best way to get to Cairo from Nairobi?

Hi!

I'm studying abroad in Nairobi this summer and in July would like to go with my friend to Egypt for 1 week - what's the best way to get there (cheapest way and then the fastest way)? We looked at flights but they are about $600! Is that the cheapest we will be able to find? I don't know much about African travel systems unfortunately...

Thanks!

Internal flights in Africa do seem expensive for those of us accustomed to the fierce price competition in the USA. Once you are in Nairobi, ask around for 'best prices'. Maybe someone here will have an experience that will help you, but I'm not optimistic. FYI, if there is a good fare on Ethiopian Airlines, don't be afraid of it. Both it and Kenya Airways operate at international standards for safety.

I just went to the airport and bought a ticket at the last minute...

Good luck! It was around 600 dollars.

I have done it on Kenya Airways. Both KA and Ethiopian Airways are very good. Check for prices on their websites.

Overland, you might need the week to get there!!
