Nairobi is one of Africa’s fastest growing cities. With over 3 million people, it has long burst out of its former colonial boundaries. It is also the business and tourism hub of East Africa, and as such, if you go on safari in East Africa, you will most likely stay overnight in Nairobi. The attractions of the city are varied and ever-changing. It offers the usual urban pleasures from museum and gallery visiting too shopping for local artwork, crafts and curios. You can even enjoy its urban national park. You need to be prudent while sightseeing but no more than any other large metropolitan city. One piece of advice which you should bear in mind is that traffic is appalling and you should leave plenty of time for arrival at your destination while trying to avoid rush hours.
The vibrant local economy means there are new hotels in Nairobi opening almost on a monthly basis. Most of the big name, large hotel groups are present; from the Hilton to the Radisson. There are also old colonial gems with modern service ethics like the Norfolk or for a more eclectic experience, Giraffe Manor in the suburb of Karen where a Rothschild Giraffe will nuzzle you while dining on the lawn.
