Nairobi, Kenya's capital, is a buzzing, cosmopolitan city that is maturing and growing into itself with every passing day. It is perched on the impressive Nairobi river and boasts a massive population of 4million! Nairobi is the safari capital of Africa and has plenty to offer.
Its highlights include Nairobi National Park, Giraffe Centre, Nairobi National Museum, Nairobi Gallery, Bomas of Kenya and much more beside. However, the best of Nairobi is in the city itself. It surprises at every turn.
Budget hotels abound in Nairobi, particularly around the bus station. Here are our top two picks:
The Terminal Hotel, in the city centre, is a great, but loud choice. It boasts large rooms and will only set you back 1800KSH for a single room!
The Milimani Backpackers Safari Centre is a little further out but is worth the trip. They boast internet, cable TV, internet, a bar and restaurant, a fireplace, and a parking area.. And all for only 600KSH for a dorm room!
A final note.
Although Nairobi is considered to be much safer these days there is still the possibility of crime (particularly 'snatch and grab' style theft) and all of the usual precautions should be taken.
