Why you need visit to Nairobi, Kenya.
Nairobi is the capital of Kenya and an incredible place to visit and explore the wonders of Africa. If you are in town, it is absolutely necessary to go to Safari. The Nairobi National Park is a short distance from the heart of the city and inside you will find zebras, giraffes, gazelles, hippos, leopards, cheetahs and much more. A special gift is reserved for those in the park from 11:00 to 12:00, as it is when rhinos and baby elephants receive their daily mud baths; a place you can not miss
Tusker, a delicious local beer
Because of the naturally dusty and warm character of Nairobi, it is not surprising that cold beer is the favourite drink in the city. The city makes its own beer, and the local favourite is Tusker. There are countless places in the city where you can drink a glass of Tusker; from the hole in the wall beams to the luxurious living rooms. The taste of the beer is delicious and certainly refreshing after a long day of city adventures or a safari.
The Karen Blixen Museum
For those who are fans of Meryl Streep’s popular film Out of Africa, a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum is a good option. Within Nairobi is the farm where Karen Blixen lived from 1917 to 1931. Her famous memoirs were written from this house and the tours are available every day. If someone goes to the terrace, it is possible to see the flashlight in the corner that they have hung for his mistress, the nefarious English hunter Denys Finch Hatton. You can still find your books with monograms on the shelves.
Stunning Coffee from Kenya
Most people do not realize this, but coffee is originally from Africa. Ethiopia was the first to produce it, but today you can experience some of the best coffee in Africa, and Kenya is no exception. That’s why a trip to Nairobi Java House is a must during your travels through the city. Coffee is exceptional and popular with tourists and business people trying to recover from a red-eye flight. You can also find a cafeteria at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Make sure you try the AA of Kenya; a local favourite.
Nyama Choma (roasted meat)
Nyama Choma is the name of Kenya’s favourite food, and it literally means roasted meat. This is why carnivores are welcome in Nairobi. Here you will find exotic dishes such as the ostrich, the camel and the crocodile, all prepared to perfection. Food is cheap and plentiful in Nairobi, and for those who are adventurous, there is no end to the strange, unique and delicious dishes one can find.
The Kibera neighbourhood
It may not be the first destination you can think of, but an instructive and inspiring experience is a visit to Kibera; the biggest poor neighbourhood in the world. A million people live in this city, and the only way to see it is with a guided tour. Visit the orphanage or the bookkeeping factory. Although it is a challenging visit, much can be gained by seeing the resistance and humanity of this remarkable city.
Muthaiga Country Club, Nairobi
Muthaiga Country Club cannot be missed during a visit to Nairobi. Built in the colonial era, the pink and white chains and the heads of stuffed animals hanging on the walls have an old-school charm. There is a beautiful old library and beautifully maintained bars open to members. This is a very formal environment that requires a coat and tie. It is an installation that is only for members, but anyone on a business trip can usually find someone who can bring them as a guest.

According to African tradition, these buses are equipped with fluorescent lighting, high sound systems, huge television screens and fun murals on the sides of famous figures. These local treasures are very nice to drive and very cheap.
The Rift Valley
The Rift Valley is a very classic African landscape. With its vast savannas, incredible flora and fauna, as well as a unique geology, it is often called the “cradle of human life”. Here you will find some of the most spectacular landscapes in the country. On a clear day, it is possible to see hundreds of kilometres; all the way to Tanzania.
