Why It’s a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare between New York City and Nairobi starts from $1,066 with taxes for travel in late March (Virgin Airlines). Add to that $362 per person, including tax, for three nights at InterContinental Hotel Nairobi, about $175 per person for one night at Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort, and $350 per person for two nights at Keekorok Lodge, and you’d be paying $1,953 for airfare and accommodations. For just $156 more than that, this package covers the flight, six nights’ accommodations, 12 meals, sightseeing tours of Nairobi, a boat safari on Lake Naivasha, a game-viewing safari in Maasai Mara National Reserve, the service of English-speaking guides, all transfers, and all taxes and fees.

More Additional activities are available, including a hot-air-balloon safari over Maasai Mara National Reserve for $425 per person. Extend your stay at the InterContinental Hotel Nairobi starting from $113 per person per night, based on double occupancy (with an additional $100 per person charge for changing flights).
