Hi just make sure you have no short gaps between your flights arriving joburg and the next one to Nairobi - they are very often late and you can miss connections and Kenyan Airlines are not particularly helpful and dont let you know whats happening and you can queue for a couple of hours waiting to sort out flights etc.

We missed out connection from Cairo via Khartoum to Nairobi because of a delay in Khartoum by half an hour and they did not hold the joburg flight - the next flight was 8.30 that night (connection was 6.30 a.m.) and we then missed out connecting flight to Cape Town. It took us 24 hours just to get to Joburg.

I have always found Kenya Airways very good and helpful. They are an International Airline, not a local one!!

if you have an overnight in Joburg, then you shouldn't be late for the KA flight. You have to allow enough time for the Security and long walks in Joburg airport.
