Nairobi is Kenya’s cosmopolitan capital. Its bustling urban core is full of skyscrapers, a vibrant nightlife scene and plenty of excellent cultural venues such as the extensive National Museum. For all its modern developments, it is the only capital city to have a national park within it as well as several reserves dedicated to the wellbeing of elephants, giraffes, rhinos and more. It is also the starting point for safari adventures in Kenya with ‘Hells Gate’ National Park and Lake Naivasha within day trip distance.
