Nairobi Arrival Package

July 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and/or 11

A. Basic Package

Since most international flights land in Nairobi late at night, we are offering a special arrival package for your peace of mind on your first night in Kenya. With this package, you will enjoy:

•A personalized greeting as you exit the customs hall at the international airport, with someone holding a sign with your name on it.

•A free shuttle from the airport to the nearby hotel. 

•A comfortable hotel room with internet, mosquito netting, and a hot shower. 

•Bottled water.

•A full buffet breakfast in the morning.

•A free shuttle back to the airport, if you are traveling onward by air.

•All tips are covered by the fee you pay.

The cost of the basic package is $60 per adult, double occupancy. (Children under 3 are free. Children age 3-12 are $45. Children over 12 are charged at the adult rate.)

We intend to use the 67 Airport Hotel (with overflow to a similar facility if needed). See https://www.67airporthotel.co.ke/ for information about the available amenities. 


The Nairobi Arrival Package is available every day, 

from Saturday, July 4 through Saturday, July 11.


If you are proceeding onward from Nairobi to the Triennial on Sunday, July 12, you will need to book your own flight from Nairobi to Kisumu. We recommend choosing a mid-day or early afternoon option, rather than early morning, so that you can have a more relaxed breakfast before heading back to the airport. See the Orientation document you will receive upon registration for further guidance on booking domestic flights.


If you are selecting one of the Pre-Triennial Travel Options below, that option includes your onward transportation, so you do not need to make a separate booking of a domestic flight. You will be collected from the hotel after breakfast on the first morning of your excursion. 


If you are planning to travel independently before arriving in Kisumu for the Triennial, please make your own onward travel arrangements. FUM staff are not able to assist with individualized itineraries and bookings.

B. Pre-Triennial Optional Nairobi Add-Ons

You may choose to add on a second or third night at the hotel, as you recover from jetlag, and to add one or more activities in Nairobi, as follows:
