Being Kenya's capital, Nairobi, is a typical city - busy, overcrowded and hot. Located in its own region of Kenya, Nairobi has only been increasing in size and population since 1899. Today it is East Africa's economic, commercial and transport centre.
Nairobi is an important base for the United Nations and is home to universities, NGO's and various organisations. The city centre has modern office blocks and has a vibrant atmosphere. Tourists are able to explore the city on foot, however caution must be taken for petty crime. The safer option would be to take a taxi, which is offered on almost every street corner.
There are a wide variety of things to do and see in and around Nairobi :-
Being a city, there is no shortage of accommodation options, from top class hotels, luxury lodges to budget guesthouses and bed and breakfasts. Nairobi's business community is thriving and growing with each passing year. There are also some excellent events in the city - view information on the 22nd Buildexpo Africa and more in the Events Section.
