Nairobi – Leisurely Layover in the Capital
Welcome to Nairobi, where giraffe and elephants can be seen on the plains beneath the city backdrop. Buildings rise high in the distance, and wild mammals are spotted roaming the grasslands, buffalo among those juxtaposed with the lights of the city. It is an indication of the land’s history when rhinos and lions were sometimes spotted in the streets. It is also an introduction to how wildlife is integral to everything in Kenya. No other country has preserved its landscape so well, more than a million large wild mammals freely roaming across plains and forests. Your hotel has the legendary Nairobi view, the contrast between wild and urban seen directly from your balcony. You will be greeted at the airport for the transfer, and dinner at the hotel will be included. The hotel is also ideally situated for tomorrow’s departure, just a five-minute transfer to the domestic airport.
