Discover the wild side of Nairobi

Beyond the conveniences of modern amenities, the city of more than 4 million people has a wild side, literally speaking. Nairobi National Park, the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, the Langata Giraffe Center, and three indigenous forests give residents and non-residents an escape from the concrete jungle.
