What was previously swampland was reincarnated into the metropolis of Nairobi, Kenya's booming capital city, in a relatively short period of time. When the railroad came in 1899, the Maasai erected a crude camp and source station in a spot known to the Maasai as "Ewaso Naiberi," or "abode of cool water." It was therefore dubbed "Mile 327," and it swiftly grew into a small community before becoming the capital of British East Africa in 1907, attracting hundreds of adventurers, hunters, and visitors from all over the world. During your trip, pay a visit to the world's first safari capital.
Your fantasy holiday in Kenya takes you to one of the continent's largest and most diversified cities, allowing you to get up close and personal with the "Nairobi character." This unusual African metropolis offers a variety of local attractions where you can learn about the city's history and the cultures that make Kenya a distinctive destination for any type of tourist, as well as sample foreign restaurants, shops, and markets amid a bustling afro-urban setting.
Nairobi's promise is alive and well, as it has been for over a century, bringing visitors from all over the world looking for new wildlife viewing chances among the immense Kenyan plains. The African bush is found near the southern boundary of the city in Nairobi National Park, where prey animals such as zebra, wildebeest, impala, giraffe buffalo, and other herbivores graze while keeping an eye out for stealthy predators such as cheetah, lion, hyena, leopard, and others. "Fourteen Falls" is a stunning 88-foot waterfall.
