UAE travellers will also gain direct access to Nairobi, which offers an exciting cultural scene and a stepping stone to enjoy Kenya’s safari holidays in the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve where visitors can spot the 'big five': African elephants, rhinoceros, Cape buffalo, leopards and lions. 

Etihad Airways chief executive officer Antonoaldo Neves said: "We're thrilled to be re-starting flights to Nairobi, a dynamic and exciting city in itself and also the gateway to a Kenyan safari, a dream adventure for many travellers, offering a view of the diverse and magnificent wildlife of Africa.”
