Address: Nairobi City Centre
Directions: The InterContinental is very easy to find being just opposite Uhuru Park in the City Centre.Any taxi drive will be able to find it and it’s about 10-20 mins to the airport if there’s no traffic. That’s a big if though as Nairobi traffic is pretty dreadful for much of the time, so it really depends on the time of day.
