Tailor-made Nairobi Holidays

Nairobi is an ever-moving tangle of urban life and the launching pad for most Kenyan adventures. From its roots as a 19th-century colonial depot on the Mombasa to Uganda railway, Nairobi has emerged as East Africa’s largest metropolis. A beacon of modern progress, glassy skyscrapers home to Fortune 500 companies pierce the horizon amid the constant roar of traffic and beeping matatus, the city’s army of shared minibus taxis. Delve deeper and you’ll discover overflowing flea markets, historic marvels like the colonial home-turned-museum that belonged to Out of Africa author Karen Blixen and rooftop bars where you can sip icy Tusker beer and watch the sun go down.

Venture just outside of the Kenyan capital and you’ll find sharp contrasts, from the corrugated-topped shanty town Kibera, home to over a million people, to the open plains of Nairobi National Park. Here, you can spot four of the big five African animals set against a backdrop of the spiky skyline, where planes periodically swoop in for landing. On the park’s outskirts, orphaned elephants and black rhinos find sanctuary in Sheldrick Wildlife Trust nurseries, while at stately Giraffe Manor, guests breakfast with endangered Rothschild giraffes, who crane their elegant necks into the dining room of this boutique hotel attached to a conservation centre.

Get to grips with Kenya’s vibrant capital with help from our Africa team, who can arrange the best Nairobi hotel stays and tour experiences with a local guide.
