Introducing Nairobi

Kenya’s skyscraper capital, Kenya is often a stopover point for travellers on their way to safari. But this bustling metropolis has so much to offer from historical sites and monuments to city parks and wildlife centres; it’s a fantastic place to ease you into the crazy, exotic continent of Africa and it’s the ideal spot for families in search of family-friendly places to take the kids. So often overlooked as a destination in its own right, the incredible city of Nairobi might just surprise you. If you’re spending at least a few days exploring this busy capital, make sure you don’t miss the spectacular Nairobi National Park which is known for its breeding programs for endangered black rhinos, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Orphanage, the Giraffe Centre, the Karen Blixen Museum and the Bomas of Kenya for a cultural experience like no other.
