Welcome to Nairobi, the Safari Capital of the World! This hospitable Kenyan city knows
how to thrill and entertain. Often dubbed the City under the Sun, Nairobi is really in the limelight
of tourists’ attention.
From the very start of your guided tour you will notice that Nairobi is a very green city
with many parks and open spaces. Its main attractions are generously provided by nature itself.
Man-made infrastructure is being created to just emphasize the beauty of the landscape.
Architectural landmarks are not numerous. An undisputed hit is Jamia Mosque in the
downtown area; its outlook and the interior are highly impressive. Nairobi also hosts a few
museums, such as the Nairobi National Museum, the city’s largest museum with an extensive
collection of historic and cultural artefacts. It is worth going to Central Park to see the
Mausoleum to Jomo Kenyatta, the first president of Kenya. The city may also interest you with
its Rahimtulla Museum of Modern Art, Kenya National Archives, Kenya National Theatre, and
the Independence Monument in Uhuru Gardens.
Nairobi is one of the few cities, which can boast having a national park totally within its
boundaries. Together with a knowledgeable tourist guide, you can get involved in an exciting
Nairobi Safari Walk, which presupposes on-foot exploration of the animal world of Kenya.
African wildlife is presented in its full beauty here, with all the main species of animals and over
400 species of birds. It is an extraordinary experience to visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage,
which picks up orphaned elephant calves and rhinos from Kenya. Giraffes, ostriches and
crocodiles are supported in the Giraffe Centre and Mamba Village. A perfect getaway from the
city bustle is Lake Naivasha.
