There are three international airports in Kenya. Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, JKIA, is in Nairobi. Moi International Airport, MIA, is in Mombasa at the coast. Eldoret International Airport, EIA, is in Eldoret in the western highlands. Wilson Airport, in Nairobi, is the large light aircraft airport in Africa. A wealth of domestic airlines provide daily scheduled flights from Wilson Airport to domestic airports and airstrips around Kenya. Charter flights and helicopter flights are easily available, and can be booked directly with the airline or through a travel agent.

The railway links Nairobi to Mombasa. The train travels at night, leaving Nairobi and Mombasa on alternate evenings. There are three classes: first class has 2-bed compartments, second class has 4-bed compartments, while third class has seats.

The roads linking major towns are suitable for 2WD vehicles. More remote roads, including all roads in northern Kenya, require 4WD vehicles. The roads in most national parks, reserves and conservancies also require 4WD vehicles.
