Bustling. Exciting. Culture. Mischief. Fun.
These are the words that come to mind when I think of Nairobi.
The capital city of Kenya, and the ONLY city in the world that has a full blown National Park. Like really, catch a lion randomly crossing the road on a random Wednesday afternoon…while I kid on the last part, you do not have to travel far once you arrive into the city to have an amazing wildlife experience.
Here are the top reasons you should pick Nairobi for a full vacation experience!
Tight on a budget, have limited travel time and looking for that nature, wildlife dose, look no further than Nairobi National Park. It is home to the black rhinoceros, lions, leopard, African buffalo, black rhinoceros, giraffe, hippopotamus, spotted hyena, blue wildebeest, plains zebra, cheetah, Thomson’s gazelle, Grant’s gazelle, common eland, impala, hartebeest, waterbuck, common warthog, olive baboon, black-backed jackal, common ostrich, and Nile and much more!
Being so close to the city center, you can set out at any time of the day, and get to experience a safari experience.
Kenyans are known for being amazing runners, and yes gracing the party scene with their vibrant energy. With so many spots to choose from, there is never a dull moment in the Nairobi nightlife scene. Here some of my favorite party spots:
These are but a few of my fave spots, but no matter where you end up, the music is very diverse, with beautiful people. Cautionary note however, be very alert as the nightlife can get quite rowdy. Always have someone who knows the city well
Picture this, a giraffe waking you up at your bedroom window for some treats. Sounds unreal? But for Nairobi, this is an ordinary day at the Giraffe Manor hotel!
There are so many opportunities to catch these types of moments, and being from there ourselves, we are able to take you to picture worthy locations that will have everyone googling your social media!
Kenyans are a friendly group of people and you will feel their warmth everywhere! Delicious cuisines, beautiful swahili language which you will often hear mixed with English (we call it Sheng) With over 42 tribes in Kenya, you will have the amazing opportunity to meet a diverse group of people!
