Nairobi offers splendid options for going out

The hustle and bustle of the city offers a cultural cosmos with museums, art galleries, theaters and a lively music and nightlife scene, while markets and shopping centers invite you for a special shopping experience.

The National Museum in Nairobi is especially famous for its collection of hominid fossils.

Discover the wild side of Nairobi

Beyond the conveniences of those modern amenities, the city of more than 4 million people still 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.
