2018 Would be the Year to remember if you are Traveler Destined for Kenya. We would be proud and loud to narrate to Our Grand Kids that Look, Boys, we were Present when Kenya’s national carrier made It’s inaugural direct flight from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi to John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) International Airport in New York City.

Bordering the Indian Ocean, tropical Mombasa is Kenya’s main coastal tourist destination and a popular gateway to the country’s amazing white beaches and coral reef diving. The cosmopolitan city has also become a destination in its own right courtesy of cultural mix and old town charm.
