Green City in the Sun

You're likely to visit Nairobi at least once on a trip to Kenya, as the sprawling city houses the country's international airport and remains the jump-off point for many tours and safaris. Since its founding in 1899, Nairobi grew at an almost alarming rate and transformed from a swamp-surrounded train depot to one of Africa's largest cities and a premier economic hub of the continent. On a tour of Nairobi, you can experience its exuberant atmosphere and vibrant blend of cultures, as well as the obvious contrasts between leafy suburbs and chaotic downtown traffic. You don't have to venture very far to get a glimpse of the region's diverse wildlife, as the city boasts its own national park.
