Tailor Made Holidays To Nairobi

Nairobi – the heart and soul of Kenya. Once a frontier town, it’s now one of Africa’s most buzzing urban hubs. Holidays here give you the best of both worlds - get lost in the maze of concrete jungles and be in awe of the stunning natural beauty surrounding the city.

The name ‘Nairobi’ comes from the Maasai phrase ‘Enkare Nyrobi’, which translates to ‘cool water’. Cool it definitely is. If you’ve come here for glitzy nightlife, you’re in for a treat. Throw down on the dance floor at Nairobi’s hottest bars and clubs and grab a bite to eat at one of the trendy restaurants or street food markets.

Your morning cuppa may be good back home, but wait until you try ‘chai’ (as the locals call it) in Nairobi. Founded by the British East African colony in 1899, the city is believed to have been a hub for global tea and coffee exportation during this time. Visit the nearby tea plantations and learn about the roots of this refreshing beverage we all know and love. 

The fertile lands of Nairobi are not only claimed by tea. Nairobi National Park is a haven for wildlife lovers. Majestic beasts, including rhinos, giraffes and elephants, roam this natural sanctuary. Bring your binoculars and release your wild side.
