Welcome to Nairobi
Dynamic and dizzying, offering both sky-high urbanity and rural wildlife preserves, Nairobi is a dazzling contradiction, and one of East Africa’s largest cities. Ranking among the top things to do in Nairobi, the Nairobi National Park, Giraffe Centre, and David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust offer opportunities to discover elephants, rhinos, giraffes, lions, and more without leaving on safari. For a dose of culture, head to the National Museum or visit the Bomas of Kenya to learn about the region’s tribal groups. And don’t retreat to your hotel after dinner—Nairobi’s nightlife is legendary.
