Nairobi, Kenya’s vibrant capital, is a captivating blend of natural beauty, bustling urban life, and rich cultural heritage, making it a must-visit destination on any African itinerary.
Nestled between the rolling landscapes of the Nairobi National Park and the rugged terrain of Mount Kenya, Nairobi is a city that’s in love with nature. Here, the verdant landscapes merge seamlessly with the urban environment. At the Nairobi National Park, a mere 7 km from the city center, you can marvel at a variety of wildlife, from zebras to lions, with the metropolis’s skyscrapers looming in the background. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, located within the park, offers a unique chance to engage with orphaned elephants, whilst the Giraffe Centre in Lang’ata allows close encounters with the Rothschild giraffes.
The city’s cultural scene is as lively and diverse as its natural surroundings. Visit the Nairobi National Museum, where Kenya’s historical, cultural, and artistic heritage is vividly displayed. Take a leisurely walk through the Maasai Market to find local handicrafts, vibrant jewelry, and colorful fabrics — a perfect opportunity to interact with the locals and appreciate their artistry. Also, be sure not to miss the Kazuri Beads Women Co-operative, where beautifully handcrafted beads tell a story of empowerment and resilience.
