Airports in Kenya

Located in Kenya's capital, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (Nairobi) is the biggest airport in the country and one of the busiest airports on the continent of Africa. Most of the airports in Kenya are small, local operations, but some international flights go to Moi International Airport (Mombasa), and Kisimu Airport was upgraded to an international airport in 2011.

Kenya Driving Rules & Regulations

Drive on the left and overtake on the right in Kenya. Many intersections have no traffic lights or stop signs. Local minibuses known as matatus, often drive on the wrong side of the road and on pavements. Many rural roads are narrow and pot-holed.
