Nairobi - Kenya

Nairobi, often called Nairobbery, is for many a place to arrive and leave as quickly as possible. Don’t. Stay a few days and explore all it has to offer. Incredible wildlife, colourful markets, the world-famous elephant orphanage, the giraffe centre, the many local workshops and art centres, the vibrant bar and club scene, and of course its mouth-watering options for food and drinks.

The name Nairobi comes from the Masai ‘enkare nyorobi’, meaning cool place. Its altitude gives it the perfect climate, warm during the day and cool at night. Despite the rapid developments, it remains a very green city, offering locals and travellers everything from wildlife and recreational areas to sophisticated shopping centres. But the large influx of people from rural areas also means that one of Africa’s biggest slum areas, Kibera, can be found in Nairobi.

Nairobi should not only be a starting point or departure location for the best safaris, superb hiking, and other activities Kenya has to offer, but it is a destination in itself. Allow time to explore this vibrant city full of colour, smells, culture, sights, activities, excellent food and friendly people.

Book your cheap flight to Nairobi today and allow yourself to fall in love with all Nairobi has to offer, like so many have done before you.
