Nairobi Animal Orphanage
Located in Nairobi National Park, visitors get to see cheetahs, lions, baboons, buffaloes and many other mammals.
The giraffe Centre is located in Langata, also a few minutes’ drive from Nairobi’s Central Business District.
Here, one gets to feed the world’s tallest mammals while standing on a raised platform.
Please don’t leave Kenya before getting a souvenir or two from the Maasai Market.
At the market you can buy beautifully embroidered sandals, necklaces, bracelets, and assorted curios.
Though the vendors’ location keep shifting. On Friday, they will be located at the Village Market along Limuru Road, on Saturday they will be at the High Court parking lot within the Central Business District and on Sunday, they will be at Yaya Center in Hurlingham.
Nairobi City offers a variety of night clubs to visit. The entertainment spots in the City Centre, Westlands and Hurlingham areas will not disappoint.
