Nairobi

Nairobi is the capital city of Kenya and also its largest city. Founded in 1899 as a rail depot, linking Mombasa to Uganda the town quickly grew to become the capital of British East Africa and eventually the capital of a free Kenyan Republic in 1963. A prominent city in East Africa for many reasons; the most populous with a population of about 3 million, a political and financial powerhouse, and also the gateway to the magical tourist attractions that Kenya holds.

Nairobi is a bustling, cosmopolitan city and is generally the starting and ending point for your Kenyan Safari. The city has 2 airports, so you may find yourself flying into Jomo Kenyatta International Airport but transferring out on Safari from the smaller Wilson Airport. Often these flights need an overnight stop in Kenya - either on your way in or your way out.
The traffic in Nairobi is usually a big consideration when flight connections are required. It is important to chat to your consultant when considering flying around East Africa.
Even if it is just an overnight stop, there are many attractions that can take up your time in this busy city. From the Nairobi National Park on the outskirts to the Karen Blixen Museum and Giraffe Centre, there is something for all.

We have sought out some super accommodation options in this capital city, so have done the work for you. From the 5 star Serena Hotel in the centre of the business district to the very unusual Giraffe Manor Guest House, where you get to have breakfast with the local resident Giraffes! This is a must for families travelling but also for those looking to have a very personal interaction with these Giants of the African Savanna.

With Nairobi being quite a complex city to get around it is recommended that you use the transfer services offered by your consultant to make the most of your holiday or stopover in this vibrant city!

Safari Park Hotel and Casino

The five-star Safari Park Hotel and Casino is situated just a 15-minute drive from Kenya's capital, Nairobi, but it's a world apart from the city centre's urban hum. Surrounded by lush, elegantly manicured gardens of palms, acacia trees and vividly-coloured tropical flowers, this hotel and leisure complex is a luxurious escape from reality, with a kaleidoscopic array of entertainment offered round the clock.

Nairobi Serena Hotel

Renowned for its sophisticated ambience, superb facilities and exceptionally high standards of service, the Nairobi Serena is undoubtedly one of Kenya's finest accommodations. It has a string of awards and accolades behind its name, including being voted 'Kenya's Best Hotel' in the 2009 World Travel Awards. This luxurious establishment has deservedly earned five stars for its unfailing attention to detail and hospitality.

Giraffe Manor Guest House

Certainly one of Kenya's most famous hotel properties, Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, famed for the tamed giraffe that peek through the windows, harkens back to a bygone era, where aristocrats, movie stars, swashbucklers and adventurers made their way to the wilds of Africa, enjoying the heat and dust of safari life and indulging in a decadent lifestyle while they were at it.
