Get to Know Nairobi

Despite chaotic traffic, Nairobi has good restaurants and lodges and there's plenty to do for a day or two before or after your safari

Nairobi's traffic is congested and the city centre is chaotic come 5 pm on a Friday afternoon. Like most badly or under-developed cities in Africa, it has been forced to break up into sections that are self-sufficient in both the commercial and private sectors.

Good restaurants and even a national park within the city make Nairobi an easy place to spend a day or two at either end of your Kenya safari. There are attractions, activities and enough infrastructure to support an industry that looks after a million visitors to Kenya each year. Enjoy a visit to an elephant orphanage, explore the history of famous colonial explorers and adventures like Karen Blixen and Denys Finch Hatton, or enjoy good locally grown Kenyan coffee on your Nairobi Safari. If you're brave enough to explore Nairobi nightlife make sure you know where you're going and how you're getting back.
