Nairobi is the largest city in East Africa and one of the most likely places you’ll pass through at the start and end of your African Safari. This vibrant, cosmopolitan city has many interesting sites, with the Giraffe Centre, the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and the Karen Blixen Museum all worth a visit. Travellers are advised not to venture too far from the main centre of the city, however, and your accommodation establishments will advise you on which areas to best avoid. But one place not to miss is the Nairobi National Park, home to antelope, Zebra, rhino and even lion. The rare phenomenon of animals roaming in the wild, with tall, modern skyscrapers in the background is definitely worth seeing! At dusk the orange, African sunset creates silhouettes of the skyline throughout the city. Nairobi offers a truly African experience, providing a both an introduction to the African city life and to East Africa’s animals.
