Nairobi is a city which combines a fascinating blend of old and new and offers visitors plenty of shopping and sightseeing options. If time permits we recommend spending at least two days to take in the tours that will show you the special side of the city.
Nairobi has its very own Safari Park located just ten minutes from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport where you can see endangered black rhino, lion and many other species of wildlife and bird-life, without having to venture beyond the city boundaries. Another option just a short drive from the city centre is the Giraffe Centre which gives visitors the opportunity to get up close to nature's long-necked beauties. If it is history youâ€™re interested in, a visit to Nairobi's National Museum is highly recommended., whilst other highlights include the Kazuri Bead factory and Pottery Centre (excellent for curio shopping) and the Karen Blixen Museum.
