Many visitors come to Nairobi for safari, as the Nairobi National Park envelops the city with 70 square miles of plains and wildlife. The city itself is surprisingly modern, and there are many non-safari things to do too, such as shopping, sports, ecotourism trips and great eats and nightlife.
Nairobi National Park is home to zebra, buffalo, giraffes, lions, hippos and rhino, to name a few. Visitors also have the option of going on the Nairobi Safari Walk, which is an educational center set up to teach visitors about habitats and wildlife conservation.
Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage is also nearby, which rescues abandoned calves. For an unforgettable experience, you can go in and interact with the baby elephants. The Banana Hill Art Gallery features work from local artists, and is well worth a visit.
After flying into Jomo Kenyatta Airport (NBO) visitors must pay USD $50.00 for a visa. To get into the city, it is best to take a taxi, but you could also hire a car if you prefer to drive yourself.
You can get a varied selection of cuisine in Nairobi, but a stop into a local eaterie is a great way to sample favorites like nyama choma (meat roast) with ugali (corn bread).
