Many of our guests end up staying in Nairobi for a night either on arrival or after their safari. The City is not without its charms with several excellent attractions. There is the Daphne Sheldrick elephant orphanage and Giraffe Center, both worthwhile charities doing excellent work and offering close viewing of elephant and giraffe, which kids in particular will love. There is also the Nairobi National Museum and Karen Blixen Muesum.
In terms of accommodation, the new Eka Hotel is a very solid option near the airport, spotless with a lovely pool, friendly service and reasonable rates, whilst the Mayfair Southern Sun adds more character to the equation. The Nairobi Tented Camp offers a wonderful bush camp experience, well located for the airport in Nairobi National Park. For a real splurge, Giraffe Manor is an unforgettable experience with accommodation in a magnificent colonial manor with giraffe roaming in the garden.
