From France to Kenya: we explain everything here!



  • Go to or Select your departure airport (example: Paris) and your arrival airport: Nairobi, Jomo Kenyatta International. Then select your dates of stay. Tip: Avoid the airline EgyptAir as well as flights with several stopovers (delays, luggage not present on arrival, extra night in hotel if plane is missed, etc.).


  • Once you have your international flight in your pocket, it is necessary to book your domestic flight (from Nairobi to Eldoret). You can book your flight here: This flight takes 35 minutes and costs about 100€ round trip.

This is a 100% secure hotel with a private shuttle that picks you up at the airport on your arrival in the evening and (re)drops you off at the airport the next day for your domestic flight to Eldoret (service included in the room rate). Booking procedure:

Private shuttle schedule: take the 12:30 p.m. flight to Nairobi and the 5:10 p.m. return flight to Eldoret with Jambojet.

It's an hour's drive to the center. Our shuttle will drop you off safely right inside our training center. You'll receive a shuttle confirmation e-mail the day before you arrive at the center!

You can easily recognise the driver by his "RUN'IX Athletic Center" sign.

There is a charge for this service - depending on the number of people to be transported.
