Nairobi is the capital city of Kenya and is the most cosmopolitan and exciting place in East Africa. The Nairobi River flows right through the city of over 4.3 million people. In fact, 10 rivers are running through the capital. Most well-known for its Serengeti and safaris, this is one of the most unique spots on the globe. You can actually see wild animals along with a background of skyscrapers.
The city has more than a dozen of the tallest skyscrapers in the country, including the 1,030-foot Pinnacle Towers and 660-foot Britam Tower. Most of these towers have entertainment for locals and tourists in the form of clubs, shopping, dining, and observation decks where you can get some amazing views of the city. But with the excellent climate, outside activities are popular too.
Nairobi has an average high of 76 degrees with an average low of 52 degrees, so it is always a comfortable temperature there. The two largest parks in the city include Nairobi National Park, where you can go on safari, and Uhuru Park, which has a lake and several national monuments. You may also enjoy visiting the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage by Nairobi National Park, where they have dozens of bottle-fed babies.
Taking your bags with you when visiting a new city is not just inconvenient, it can be scary. Nobody wants to have to worry about someone stealing their belongings while on vacation.

With over a dozen museums, you can spend a week in Nairobi without enjoying them all. From galleries full of art and pottery to the railway museum full of old engines, you can learn all about Nairobi and Kenya as well as Africa. Here are some of our favorite choices:
Nairobi National Museum: Where else can you learn the most about Nairobi? Of course, the national museum has the most information about the history and culture with exhibitions of fossils, money, taxidermy, and artifacts. They even have a skull from one of our human ancestors that is 18 million years old. You can find this museum on Kipande Road, about 10 minutes from town.
Karen Blixen Museum: If you have never seen or heard of the 1985 movie, Out of Africa, be sure to see it before going to Nairobi. Then visit this museum on Karen Road about 11 miles from the city. The movie was about Karen Blixen, who lived in Nairobi on a 4,500-acre farm where she employed 800 Kikuyu workers. During her time there, she built a school and looked after the Kikuyu tribe, helping them with food and medical care. The museum is a tribute to Karen and holds artifacts and information about her and the Kikuyu tribe as well as the 1985 film.
Fort Jesus Museum: Built in the late 16th century in southern Mombasa, the Portuguese kept this area under control for over a century. This was the site of one of the first places where Western civilization was able to control the trade routes of the Indian Ocean. The fort, with its walls and bastions, is still largely intact, reflecting Renaissance architecture. Interestingly, the fort was built in the shape of a man lying on his back facing the sea. Be sure to stop by the fort on Makadara in Mombasa and bring your camera.
Everyone likes to shop while they are on vacation. Especially in a new city. Whether you are searching for the perfect souvenirs for the folks back home or something for yourself, you will find it in Nairobi. Make sure to leave your bags at one of our Bounce locations, so you have your hands free for all your new bags.
