    Seriously be careful though as when we were there some of our friends who were walking at dusk got mugged. The carnivore restaurant is a must!! We also did a trip up to the lake and the giraffe house which was quite nice (bit expensive though).. almost 8 years ago

    Hello again, Elinor.

    Just wanted to elaborate on Carnivore, because it as absolute must in Nairobi. It's a restaurant that serves various game meat, like zebra, impalla, ostich and crocodile, to name a few. They cook it in a spit fire, and serve it Brazillian style, by coming to your table with a giant skewer, and slicing off whatever they are offering. It is about $30+ per person, and just a really unique, neat thing to do in Nairobi. One of my biggest claims to fame amongst my friends is telling them that I've eaten giraffe. My bragging rights was worth the trip alone! :)

    As well as everything else already mentioned, there's also the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust aka the Elephant Orphanage.
    You can visit and adopt a baby elephant!
    If you like reptiles then there's also the Nairobi Snake Park.
    If you've heard of the movie Out of Africa, then definitely go to the Karen Blixen House and Museum. over 7 years ago

    Nairobi - Kenya's capital - has become one of Africa's largest, and most interesting cities. A frontier town no more, Nairobi has ascended in the last century from a barely inhabited swampland to a thriving modern city with boundless energy that never seems to sleep.

    A thriving place where great contrasts of life, race, tribe and origin all become facets of a unique character.

    The city however, has not lost its sense of the past, but also offers excellent hotels, museums, international restaurants, an eclectic music scene, an endless array of shops and markets and the historical home of Karen Blixen ~ author of Out of Africa.

    Just outside the city is Nairobi National Park - 113 sq kms of plains, cliffs and forest. The park is home to large herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, giraffe, rhino, cheetah, and a large number of lions are all found here, living wild within 20 minutes of the center of town. Further out of town, the spectacular 20 ft. "Fourteen Falls" waterfalls at Thika , Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park with an impressive 2,146 meter mountain and for the adventurous at heart, white water rafting on the beautiful Tana River. From the wildlife to the nightlife, Nairobi is a city unlike any other world wide. about 6 years ago
