Nairobi offers an abundance of exciting, diverse experiences which will enable you to get a feel for one of Africa’s growing and dynamic cities. We will happily assist you in putting together an ideal itinerary for you to explore and discover this lively city. Here are a couple of examples of experiences to include:
Discover extraordinary conservation initiatives and enjoy a rendezvous with elegant giraffe at the Giraffe Centre. Enjoy the opportunity to feed these gentle giants and explore a nearby forest trail. Another adventure is a heart-warming visit to the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Centre. Here you can witness the heroic efforts of the dedicated team who rehabilitate orphaned elephant calves and other vulnerable animals. This extraordinary place plays a pivotal role in protecting the wilderness and offers a cherished experience, as well as the opportunity to adopt an orphaned elephant.
Stroll through Utumaduni, a converted house that boasts around 15 arts and crafts stores, or the Souk, which houses an eclectic collection of paintings, leatherwork and photographic pieces. The Matbronze Wildlife Art Gallery is a must-see and is home to the first bronze foundry in East Africa. Be sure to explore the Marula Studios (known as the Flip-flop Shop), a recycle hub where discarded flip-flops are transformed into original works of art. This is an incredibly colourful entrepreneurial space.
For some truly scrumptious, fresh seafood enjoy a sublime lunch at the famous Tamarind Restaurant. Relish the catch of the day, and feast on tasty prawns, delicious crabs and delectable lobsters. After your delicious meal you can explore the Karen Blixen Museum, the farm that the Danish author of the famed memoir Out of Africa lived on from 1917 to 1931. Much of the 1985 Oscar-winning movie adaptation was shot on the grounds. A tour of the house is an intimate and beautiful experience.
After an adventure-filled day, unwind at one of Nairobi’s vibrant eateries. We recommend the Carnivore or Haandi, followed by a refreshing nightcap at Tamambo – do try a Dawa, Kenya’s iconic cocktail of vodka, fresh lime and honey, delicious!
