Nairobi is one of the biggest hubs in East Africa. It has the busiest major airport on the eastern coast of Africa, and the past two decades have seen the city increasingly bustle with life and develop extensively in terms of its culture. Today Nairobi’s population is estimated to stand at 4.5 million strong, with a range of attractions that has grown in tandem with the number of people living – and visiting – the city.
So here’s our pick of things to do in Nairobi! For everything listed below, we highly recommend using a driver guide and a private car as this is the most affordable way to get around to all the attractions. It’s also the best way, as driver guides know exactly where they are going. You could use Uber, but if you’re in Nairobi for just one day, for example, you might not be able to carry out all the activities you were hoping to enjoy during that day, as the drivers generally don’t know where they are going – this can lead to wasted time. We also don’t recommend using any of the public transport services in Nairobi.
