  • Nairobi

Located in the south-central part of Kenya, Nairobi is one of the most prominent cities in Africa, both politically and financially. The most populous city in East Africa, Nairobi is the country's capital and gateway for a Kenya safari.

Originally an uninhabited swamp area, Nairobi was chosen to become a supply depot for the Uganda Railway in 1899. With its central location between Mombasa and Kampala as well as the network of rivers that supplied the camp with water, Nairobi soon became the railway’s headquarters.

By 1905, Nairobi had replaced Mombasa as the capital of the British protectorate and the city continued to grow. Remaining under Britain’s control until 1963, Kenya was granted independence and Nairobi was named as the capital of the republic.

Big game viewing on a Kenya vacation has always been an important part of Nairobi’s appeal. The city is surrounded by 113 square kilometers (70 square miles) of cliffs, plains and forests that make up Nairobi National Park. Within the park are large herds of zebra, wildebeest and buffalo as well as giraffes, lions, cheetahs and many other animals.

Known as the “Green City in the Sun”, Nairobi is considered by many to be the safari capital of Africa while remaining a cosmopolitan city with excellent shopping and restaurants.
