The Aero Club of East Africa has been around for over 90 years! Great club with an old fashioned feel! Highly recommeneded for a stop-over (coffee or a meal) when at Wilson Airport!

If you're flying through Wilson Airport it is the best place to spend time. Coffee is good with affordable prices. Be careful of the opening time is 6:00 a.m.

Several artifacts on display (engines used in antique planes, etc.) as you walk through to the bar or dining room. Nice atmosphere.

The Aero Club is technically member's only but there is an attached Java House with wonderful food, porch seating, and access to the full Aero Club drink menu. We chose to spend a layover here instead of heading over to Kenyatta because it's quieter. Try...More
