Nairobi (Kenya)

Nairobi Travel Guide and Trip Resources


Gritty capital of a beautiful nation

Nairobi is the capital of Kenya, situated in the south of the country. It is not the safest place in the world and during the day this East African metropolis does often not seem like the most attractive place in the world either. But spend a day on the Maasai Market (on a different location each day of the week) stocking up on African souvenirs, and afterwords enjoy a good meal and a cold drink in the coolness of a Nairobi evening, and your opinion just may change. The obvious main draw here is going on safari in Nairobi National Park, where lions and rhinos roam about. [Review by travelindicator]
