Nairobi Holidays

A buzzing city with wildlife nearby

As the capital of Kenya, Nairobi is a thriving, modern city that stirs with activity, culture and, of course, access to an abundance of African wildlife. The name 'Nairobi' comes from the Masai phrase Enkare Nyrobi, which translates to 'cool water' – referring to the Nairobi River which flows through the city. 

Nairobi is a city of energy and life; from the hustle and bustle of its locals on the city’s streets, to the animals that dwell in the nearby Nairobi National Park – 113 square metres of savannah and forest. Visit the Giraffe Centre to see the gentle giants being fed and cared for in a natural environment and experience the real Out of Africa at the famous Karen Blixen Museum. For the thrill of a safari adventure, the iconic Masai Mara is a must-see with its migrating wildebeest and infamous Masai warriors.

For a getaway of contrasts, head to Zanzibar for beachfront bliss and idyllic sunsets. Whatever your aspiration, our Destination Specialists can put together the perfect itinerary just for you.
