Mara Serena to Nairobi Airport travel


After staying for three nights in Masai Mara, we are planning to leave for Nairobi on Saturday Morning in coming June ( 2014). What will be good time to leave from Serena to reach Nairobi airport ( around 2 PM) to catch 3.30 PM Mombasa Flight. I understand sometimes Nairobi gets traffic jams, please suggest travel time considering the traffic jams. Thanks.

I'd leave Mara by 7.00 am, and allow 5 hours to get to Nairobi. Clear all the roundabouts in Nairobi, and then go and have lunch at either Panari Hotel, Ole Sereni Hotel or Eka Hotel. From these 3 hotels, the airport is less then 20 minutes away, so you can leave them by 2.00 pm.

The best time would be early morning around 0630 hours so that you arrive in Nairobi at noon for lunch and some rest before proceeding to the airport.Traffic jam in Nairobi can sometimes cause a lot of inconvenience that is why you need to arrive in Nairobi at least one and half hours earlier

Mr. Kaushik,

Why u go so long to see animals? You can see it in Anand too, so it is better to go Anand.
