This melting pot of cultures is one of those once-in-a-lifetime destinations that should be on everyone’s bucket list.
Most people who travel to Nairobi intend to go on into the African bush to go on Safari. But if you pause for a while there is plenty in Nairobi itself to discover too. Head up to the top of the Kenyatta International Conference Center’s viewing tower and you can have a panoramic view of the city below you.
Nairobi also has some good museums, including the Nairobi National Museum, where visitors can learn more about the history and culture of Kenya, the National Railway Museum, which charts the importance of the railroad in the development of the country, and the Nairobi Gallery, home to a constantly changing collection of modern African art by up and coming artists.
You cannot escape the importance of Kenya’s wildlife, and around Nairobi there are plenty of sanctuaries where you can see some of the country’s most endangered inhabitants. The charming Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage provides a home to orphaned elephants and rhinos from all over Africa, While the Giraffe Centre in Lang'ata is of international importance as a breeding centre for the endangered Rothschild giraffe.
