Nairobi
Nairobi (which means cool water in the Maasai language) was founded in 1899 as a railway camp. Today it is quite westernized, one of Africa's major cities (and the U.N.'s fourth World Centre) and is the capital of Kenya. Rapid development has created a buzzing commercial atmosphere which necessitates holding your wits about you to avoid purse snatchers and the like. The National Museum offers some interesting education, but most travellers pass through Nairobi as a gateway to the National Parks and wildlife encounter/safari experience which are just outside the city.

Things To Do in Nairobi

Nairobi National Park

National Park
Zoo
Nomadic by NatureLions, leopards, hippos, rhinos, and more running around, and the park is located right in the city. It is literally like having a savannah neighborhood in the city. Wild view-scapes of herds of animals with skyscrapers in the background. Go early in the morning (arrive around 6am) for the cats and other nocturnal wildlife, or in the afternoon arriving around 4pm for the dusk. Get a group together and hire a car.

Nature Reserve
E27***92We visited in February, it was a great experience! Entry for foreigners costs 1500 KSH and they do NOT accept cash. You can feed the giraffes food pellets and they are very inquisitive. They're soft to touch! There are also warthogs running around them. We happened to be there when a guy gave an educational talk about the different species of giraffes, very interesting.

Modern Architecture
E22***51The view from the KICC helipad spot is spectacular! It gives a panoramic view of the whole of the city center and beyond, offering glimpses of the fast rising Upperhill district as well as new landmarks in Westlands. Definitely a must try!
Karen Blixen Museum

Burberry_is_KingKaren House is very good. But before you go, you have to watch the movie "Out of Africa". If you are surrounded by blue sky, white clouds, greenery, tall trees, and red houses, you can't help but feel the thoughts. It seems that you can touch the courage and love of Karen's powerful woman. The tour takes 1 hour. Watching a movie first, going out of Africa, and then coming here to experience Karen's boundless love, tenacity and character, will enhance our motivation in life.
