Nairobi

Kenya’s capital city, and one of Africa’s most innovative and fastest growing. Skyscrapers are slowly taking over the skyline as the population grows and the city continues to develop its infrastructure. Nairobi has a thriving food and art scene, and a booming nightlife. It is one of the only cities in the world with its own National Park, and has several must-see spots. These include the Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Center, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT), and many local boutique and craft shops.

Nairobi is a busy city, sitting in traffic is part of the experience, because of this it is always advised to leave some cushion when trying to get places. Sit back, enjoy the sights and sounds of this beautiful city.
