FYI, foreign office advice on travelling to Nairobi:-


There are incidents of car-jacking and armed robbery involving foreign nationals in and around Nairobi.

You should remain vigilant at all times, particularly at night and on the roads that link Nairobi city centre to residential areas. You should avoid stopping at the side of the road and should drive defensively, with vehicle doors locked and windows closed at all times.

Muggings and armed attacks by gangs can occur at any time, particularly in Nairobi and Mombasa. Avoid walking around after dark as attacks can occur anywhere, but especially in isolated areas such as empty beaches. There have been a number of armed attacks on golf courses around Nairobi, be extra vigilant while playing in remote areas away from the Club House of any golf courses. Be alert at all times. Do not accept food or drink from strangers as it may be drugged. Only stay in tourist camps with good perimeter security. If in doubt, seek advice from your tour operator or the Kenya Tourist Federation (Tel: + 254 20 604730). Do not carry valuables or wear jewellery in public places. Do not carry credit cards or cash cards unless you must: people have been forced by thieves to withdraw cash. Beware of thieves posing as police officers; always ask to see identification.

In 2008, two British nationals resident in Kenya were killed during robberies at their homes. The most recent incident occurred in April 2008. In October 2008, two British and one Irish tourist were attacked and robbed by a six man gang near Nyeri (central Kenya) whilst on a guided tour.

We advise against all but essential travel to low income areas of Nairobi, including all township or slum areas, which experience high crime levels. Such areas include, but are not limited to, Kibera, Mathare, Huruma, Kariobangi and Kawangware.

We advise against all but essential travel to within 30 kilometres of the border with Somalia. There remains a high threat of clashes between the Kenyan military and armed Somali groups along the border. There have been recent attacks on the border town of Mandera by Somali militias. In November 2008 armed groups based in Somalia crossed into Kenya near the town of El Wak and kidnapped two Western nuns. It is not known why the nuns were targeted. Any travel to remote areas or border regions could put you at risk of being the target of attacks or kidnappings.

You should be aware that the long-standing policy of the British Government is not to make substantive concessions to hostage takers. The British Government considers that paying ransoms and releasing prisoners increases the risk of further hostage taking. Incidents of armed car-hijackings are more prevalent in Nairobi and Mombasa but can occur in any area of the country. Do not attempt to escape from hijackers or resist their demands (See Local Travel for more information).

You should take sensible precautions for your personal and vehicle safety, travelling in convoy in remote areas.

If you are involved in any security incident you should insist with both the Kenyan authorities and your tour operator that the British High Commission be informed straight away.

My wife has family in Africa, so just out of interest I searched for 3 different flight dates ... all without luck

They don't even let you try a range of dates in one search .. even the train companies let you do that

Not hot in my honest opinion

Have you looked at Virgin's own web as they have good deals at the moment due to its 25th anniversery. If you are a Flying club member flights to nairobi are 25000 points thats half the usual.
