Nairobi is Kenya’s busy, expensive yet dangerous capital city. It is also both fascinating and modern. Nairobi is the country’s most important and beautiful city and with the finest temperate climate between Johannesburg and Cairo, is located at an altitude of almost 1,700 metres above sea level.
The government district of City Square contains the Conference Centre and the Kanu Tower, the headquarters of government and the city’s tallest building.
Canons guard the main entrance to the National Museum that is situated on Museum Hill, a fascinating building that covers much of Kenya’s culture and history. The museum provides an interesting insight into Pre-history as well as to various cultures and the country’s flora and fauna.
Directly in front of the city gates is the Nairobi National Park, the oldest of all Kenya’s nature parks. Groups of ostriches can be seen bathing in the hot sand. A number of springboks stroll around elegantly between scattered rocks and trees that have been uprooted by elephants close to the city’s skyline.
Nairobi is a metropolis in the ‘Realm of The Golden Sun’ and is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating cities in the world.
