Nairobi Holidays

Our tailor-made Nairobi holidays illuminate the charm of the Kenyan capital, a city that amply rewards those who choose to explore its many charms either before or after their safari. Taking its name from the evocative Maasai phrase meaning ‘the place of cool waters’, Nairobi is often seen merely as a jumping-off point for Kenya’s many incredible wildlife reserves; but to do so means missing out on a wealth of attractions.

On your tour of Nairobi you can explore the popular Karen Blixen Museum, situated in the leafy suburb of Karen. The author of the iconic novel Out of Africa documented her experiences in Nairobi and went on to inspire an Academy Award-winning film. There’s also much to see tucked away in the Ngong Hills which, as well as providing a dramatic backdrop to your stay in the city, harbour a giraffe sanctuary and the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s elephant orphanage.

Your experienced guide will also be able to take you to Nairobi National Park where, just a short drive from the central business district, you might encounter elephants and lions.
