Whether you want to experience colourful local culture, absorb yourself in a rich, historical tapestry or observe native animals in their natural habitats, look no further than Nairobi.

Take a flight to Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) and visit the capital of Kenya and the biggest city in East Africa...


Stand on the very threshold of a safari business that stretches to every corner of the country, from the reserves of Masai Mara, Amboseli and Tsavo East and West, to the beach areas near Mombasa on the coast of the Indian Ocean.

You can get up close with the giraffes at the AFEW (African Fund for Endangered Wildlife) Giraffe Centre. In addition to their breeding programme, this organisation also strives to educate the youth of Kenya about wildlife conservation.

No trip to this city would be complete without visiting the Nairobi National Park, a unique ecosystem due to its close proximity to a city centre, where you can witness baby rhinos having their shower and more than 400 species of birds.

The Bomas of Kenya celebrates the country's rich, cultural diversity by bringing together traditional music, costumes and dance from different tribes. Alternatively, visit the beautiful Jamia Mosque, a classic example of Arabic Muslim architectural style and one of Kenya's most prominent religious buildings.

Delve into the country's rich history by visiting the Kenya National Archives, a fascinating collection of documents bringing history alive from pre-colonial Kenya (circa 1890) to the present day. From this building observe the stark contrast of wealthy guests patronising the Hilton Hotel to citizens of Nairobi on Tom Mboya Street returning home to the slums.

Another historical treasure not to be missed is the Nairobi Railway Museum, which holds many answers to the early history of rail and the country's development over the years. Alternatively, for literature buffs, why not travel to The Karen Blixen Museum? A farm from 1917 until 1932, it is now more famous for Blixen's novel, 'Out of Africa', which was made into a film in 1985 and starred Meryl Streep.

Giraffes, buffalo and hippos can be seen in a stunning, natural habitat at Lake Naivasha. This freshwater lake got its name from the winds and storms that cause the water to rise, thus gaining it the nickname, 'nai'posha', or 'rough water'.
