Local Attractions

In 1899, when the builders of the railway line decided to set up camp at "Ewaso Nai´beri," they had no idea that they had just started one of the largest cities in the region. They chose to camp in this place for two primary reasons: the temperature was cool and it had ample water. Quickly, Nairobi became a city that served as an important juncture between political activists and travelers. Today, Nairobi is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city with an ever-increasing skyline. As the “gateway” to the rest of Kenya, visitors to Nairobi will find endless experiences to suit every interest.
