Guests at Southern Sun Mayfair Nairobi are always asking what there is to see and do in our busy city. Whether visiting for business or pleasure, let Nairobi surprise you with a multitude of activities and must-see locations. Here is our round up of attractions for all travellers to enjoy in Kenya’s remarkable capital city.
FOR THE BOOK NERD
Located only 10km out of the city centre, the Karen Blixen Museum is a wonderful historical site. Visit the former home of the famed Out of Africa author and enjoy the intimate experience, steeped in old-world nostalgia.
FOR THE ANIMAL LOVER
Nairobi has some of the best conservation efforts anywhere in the world. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation programme globally, and you can witness the rearing of these majestic animals firsthand when you visit.
Another must-see is the Giraffe Centre where visitors can pet and feed these elegant creatures, and learn about the plight of the Rothschild Giraffe.
FOR THE MEAT FIEND
Love meat? Then the iconic Carnivore Restaurant in Lang’ata Road is the only place to dine. Much like a Brazilian Rodizio, only more African, more wild and more delicious! Sample game such as zebra, ostrich and crocodile. We promise, you’ll be coming back for seconds.
FOR THE LIFE OF THE PARTY
No matter what day of the week it is, you’re bound to have a good time at K1 Klub House. Located in Westlands, this popular hangout serves up some of the best drinks, and spins some of the best beats in the city.
FOR THE SHOPAHOLIC
If you think the only thing to buy in Nairobi is African curios, think again. The Village Market, although deceptive in name, can rival any Western mall in terms of quality designer clothes and jewellery. Shop up a storm!
