Nairobi travel highlights

A relaxed café culture, jaw-dropping natural wonders await you in Nairobi.

  • Tourist attractions

    Within the city centre itself you’ll find an array of museums and other cultural attractions, including the Nairobi National Museum and the Nairobi Galley. Those interested in the Kenya’s historic railway museum, while Bomas of Kenya provides insights into local culture through traditional exhibits, dances and other performances.

    However, many who make the trip to Nairobi use the city as a base for exploring the attractions that lie on its doorstep. Nairobi National Park is located just outside of the city and provides an unparalleled African wildlife experience.

    The park is unique by being the only protected area in the world with a variety of animals and birds close to a capital city. While on safari, you’ll get the chance to glimpse lions, hippos, giraffes and other iconic species in their natural habitats. Related natural attractions in the area include the Giraffe Centre and the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, which are on the frontlines of Kenya’s conservation efforts.

  • Leisure activities

    Aside from exploring Kenya’s beautiful natural surroundings and wildlife, a visit to the Maasai Market is an essential stop on any trip to Nairobi. There you’ll find a mind-boggling variety of local crafts, ranging from art and curios, to traditional clothing and jewellery. Haggling is an integral part of the experience and is expected, but be sure to offer a fair price.

    It is also possible to arrange guided tours of the Kenyan capital that tourists might not otherwise venture. If you want to do something a little different that can have a positive impact, you might consider volunteering a little time at Oloo’s Children Centre. The school provides education to some of the city’s poorest children and depends on charitable contributions.

  • Food

    While prices for dining in Nairobi might be much lower than in other world capitals, it’s still possible to find restaurants serving traditional Kenyan cuisine at the upper end of the scale. There are many more restaurants serving dishes such as seafood and grilled meat aimed at tourists.

    If you want to try authentic Kenyan food, then order a plate full of Ugali, a cornmeal paste often served with stew or Githeri, which consists mainly of beans and corn, or Wali W A Nazi, a tasty rice dish flavoured with grated coconut.

  • Shopping

    The Maasai Market is held at different locations in the city over the course of a week. It is generally as follows: Wednesday at Capital Centre, Thursday at Nakumatt Junction Shopping Mall, Friday at the Village Market, Saturday at the High Court carpark and Sunday at the Yaya Centre.
