          Hi Fairmont The Norfolk, I am planning our trip to Kenya. I read about your free shuttle to and from Jomo International Airport. Is this offered every hour? Our flight leaving Nairobi is 5:00AM, I assume we have to leave the hotel by 2:00AM or so, do you still offer the free shuttle at that time?
