Nairobi is one of the most beautiful cities in Kenya. It has everything a tourist could possibly want: parks, museums, churches and markets. You can get a feel for the city by visiting its many historical sites such as the National Museum, Nairobi Museum Of Science And Technology or even take your kids to see animals at the Karen Blixen museum.

1. Go to the KICC

The KICC (Kenya International Conference Centre) is a convention center in the CBD that hosts many concerts and events. You can see some of the performances at the KICC, or you could visit one of the nearby restaurants for dinner.

There are many hotels nearby, including: Hilton Nairobi, Jabalia Towers Hotel and Hotel Carnivore. The mall next door is called Village Market Place, which houses cafes, a supermarket and more than 200 shops selling local crafts and art.

2. Visit the elephant orphanage in Nairobi national park

The elephant orphanage is a place where elephants that have been rescued from the wild are rehabilitated. The orphanage is located in Nairobi national park and it is open daily from 8am to 5pm. You can visit the orphanage for free, but donations are welcome.

If you love animals and nature, we recommend visiting this amazing place!

3. See a show at the IMAX theater at Nyama Mama in Westlands

The Nyama Mama in Westlands is a 3-D cinema that offers an immersive movie experience. The theater features state-of-the-art visual systems, including 5K resolution projectors and 21:9 screens with 2160 x 3180 pixel resolution. You can also take advantage of Dolby Atmos surround sound technology to fully immerse yourself in the film’s soundscape. If all this sounds like too much for you, there are other options! The theater has several smaller screens with seating capacities ranging from 50 to 350 people. Additionally, it hosts private events such as birthday parties and corporate getaways—with custom menus created by Chef Jonathan Gichuru himself!

A visit to the Nyama Mama IMAX Theatre will leave you feeling refreshed and ready for whatever adventures lie ahead on your next Nairobi trip!

4. Take a stroll through Karura Forest

Karura Forest is a beautiful place to visit. It is a protected forest, which means that many animals live there and it is illegal to harm or kill them. There are also many different trees, birds, flowers and butterflies. You can see all of these things if you take a stroll through Karura Forest on an early morning when it’s not too hot yet!

There are snakes in Karura Forest as well! If you see one while walking through the woods just keep calm and walk slowly away from it without disturbing it because some snakes like humans more than other animals so they might try to bite us if they get scared or feel threatened by us touching them while we’re walking past their homes in the woods near Nairobi City Center (NCC).

5. Try out Dorman’s restaurant for food and drinks, and delicious food

Dorman’s is a popular restaurant in Nairobi. The food is delicious and the drinks are good. The atmosphere is great, and the prices are reasonable. The service is good and the location is convenient. It’s also popular among locals and tourists alike, so it’s worth a try if you’re looking for somewhere new to eat in Nairobi!

6. Visit the Snake Park just outside of downtown Nairobi and you can see over 20 reptiles species!

Ever wonder what snakes are like?

Have you ever wanted to see some beautiful snakes without fearing them?

The Snake Park is a must-see for any nature lover who wants to enjoy the beauty of these creatures. The park has over 20 species of snakes, each housed in its own enclosure with plenty of climbing space and trees for them to climb on. Snakes are very gentle animals and will never hurt you unless you try and hurt them first! So if you’re looking for something exciting and relaxing, this is definitely one thing not to miss!

7. Head over to Afya Yoga Studio for some relaxation and breathing exercises with locals or tourists alike! (And check out their instagram @afyayoga)

Enjoy this wonderful city filled with culture, amazing landscape, people everywhere offering help 

Nairobi is a beautiful city, with many people offering help to tourists (very helpful). There are also beautiful buildings + parks + churches.

However, be careful since it is still a third world country where poverty levels are high (be wary of pick pocketing criminals!).

Nairobi is full of culture and has an amazing landscape.
