#21 Nairobi

Kenya’s pulsating capital is the economic, cultural and political heart of East Africa. But it is also a green city boasting three rainforests patches and a vast national park within its boundaries, a globally unique feature. The entire town has boundless energy. This is a place of great contrasts where race, tribe and origin all become facets of a unique Nairobi character. As fast as the metropolis is changing face and expanding beyond its former boundaries, it has not lost the traces of its past, well preserved in its excellent museums and historic monuments, including the historical home of Karen Blixen, author of Out of Africa fame. Whether you are looking for a special shopping experience, a very personal encounter with orphaned elephants or an entertaining night out, this is the city that has everything, and you are welcome at all times!
