Nairobi City Tours
Sprawling, steel-clad Nairobi isn’t the prettiest of African cities at first glance, granted, But there are real charm and energy to be found in this nigh on four-million-strong capital in the southern heart of Kenya for sure.
For starters, the town is famed as the only great metropolis with a bona fide safari park smack bang within city limits – just check out the Nairobi National Park, where giraffes meet cheetahs against the meanders of the Mbagathi River.
Add to that a series of great central markets that bubble with East African hotpots and foods, along with one of Kenya’s best nightlife scenes, and bingo: you’ve got yourself a town that’s really worth the stopover!

How to get Around during Nairobi city tours
We recommend hiring a private car as the city can be full of traffic and getting around by public means can be tricky.
