The best way to travel to Kenya from the United States of America is to look for airlines that either stop in London/UK or in Amsterdam/NL; for example KLM. Most of them have only a few hours of layover and from there it is a straight shot down to Nairobi.
That also applies to anyone living in Europe. A person doesn’t even have to struggle with a massive time change when you travel to Kenya; the difference is only 1 or 2 hours, depending on if your country uses daylight saving's time, which Kenya does not.
You should always check in your local newspaper for bargains and special offers. The internet has, of course, a lot to offer and it is worth the time to do some research, if you have the time of course.
The prices of course depend also on the time that you are traveling, as it might fall into the high season, which is from about mid July to mid/end of October, as it also coincides with the wildebeest migration.
As a suggestion; the beginning of the year (February to April) works very well for a visit and there are plenty of animals everywhere. The good thing about this time is that there are a little less tourists.
