Southside
My wife and I may visit the FMSC next November. Some questions: 1) Anyone have a sense of what's the latest we could aim to arrive at Nairobi's international airport from abroad and then comfortably make it over to the other airport (Wilson?) to catch the flight that gets us to the hotel? FWIW, we might be on Etihad, arriving at 1:05 pm, and would be be in business class with just carry-ons, but that's not yet nailed down. 2) More generally, I guess it could depend on the time of the day and day of the week, but about how much time to budget for that airport to airport connection? 3) If we wanted to arrange a drive instead, I see from previous questions and answers that it's about four hours with some rough spots, but is it a scenic drive at all or just more of a slog? And what is the latest time we'd want to start from the airport to do it? No problem if we need to stay over in Nairobi for a night, but just thought I'd ask. Thanks for any advice.

The drive from NBO is approximately 3.5-4 hours with 1-1.5 hours of the trip on a gravel/dirt road that has a few rough spots but is otherwise in good condition. Trip cost 150 USD and was fairly uneventful.
