What to do and Where to stay in
At just under 6000 feet above sea level the capital of Kenya is now a thriving metropolis. While its name comes from a Maasai phrase meaning ‘the place of cool waters’, Nairobi is more commonly referred to as the ‘Green City in the Sun’.

Experiences in Nairobi
As the main access point into East Africa, most visitors to Nairobi tend to spend just one night here before or at the end of a safari.
There’s plenty to occupy you – the city has not lost its sense of the past, with an excellent museum and the historical home of Karen Blixen, author of Out of Africa open to visitors.
Just outside the city is Nairobi National Park, 113 sq kms of plains, cliffs and forest. The park is home to large herds of Zebra, Wildebeest, Buffalo, Giraffe and more. Rhino, Cheetah, and a large number of Lions are all found here, living wild within 20 minutes of the centre of town.
A visit to the Giraffe Centre, run by the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife is recommended if you fancy feeding Rothschild giraffe and learning about giraffe conservation, as well as a very special visit to The Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary where you can meet orphaned baby elephants and listen to stories of rescue and rehabilitation.
