Airport transfers and hotels

Hi all,

Looking for recommendations/advise please?

In September next year I will be landing at JKA on the BA flight that lands at 8.45pm. I then will stay in Nairobi overnight and then the next morning I am catching a flight from Wilson to Samburu.

I would ideally like to book the hotel and transfers before I leave the UK.

Can anyone recommend either a hotel that had transfer buses that will enable me to do the above transfers or a company that I can book with from the UK for the transfers?

Who's booking your flight from Wilson to Samburu?

A tour operator? If so, they can arrange transfers from JKIA to, book a hotel and transfer next morning to Wilson.

If a solo traveler w/o a tour operator, you can book your own hotel, check whether they have an airport shuttle. If they do, then hotel will handle transfer from JKIA. Next morning you can take a taxi to Wilson

We have travelled same itinerary as you are doing on a few occasions and we always stay at the Serena Hotel in Nairobi. It is a superb hotel and very helpful. They can arrange your taxi for you to Wilson.

IIRC, the Samburu flight was around 09.30hrs and it takes just over 1 hour. From the Serena to Wilson took us around 20/25 minutes...it is much closer to town than JKA.

Don't recall any hotels that do a regular transfer bus though.
