Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, is a unique blend of urban and natural beauty. The city is surrounded by rolling hills, lush forests, and wildlife sanctuaries. Nairobi also boasts vibrant parks, cultural landmarks, and a bustling city centre, making it a dynamic and fascinating destination.
Nairobi is a thriving and vibrant city, an exciting blend of African culture, great cuisine, skyscrapers, shopping malls, international hotels, boutique guest houses, a huge national park complete with free ranging lion and giraffe and the quiet leafy suburbs of Karen and Langata.
In Nairobi you can visit the Giraffe Sanctuary and feed beautiful reticulated giraffe by hand, or the elephant orphans at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Explore Karen Blixen’s beautiful home and learn about her fascinating life on a coffee plantation at the foot of the Ngong Hills, now largely absorbed into Nairobi’s suburbs, or you may wish to go shopping for the most exquisite home wears and gifts at Langata Link Shops or The Souk.
There really is something for everyone, you will likely have at least an overnight in Nairobi in your itinerary but consider extending your stay so you have a little time to explore this remarkable and colourful city.
