Wildlife and waterfalls

No need to travel far to spot wildlife. The sparkling Nairobi skyline is still visible from Nairobi National Park where you can watch lions, elephants and zebras. And be sure to include Masai Mara National Park with its grassy plains and tree-lined rivers. Paradise Lost Resort, located on a coffee plantation, is only fifteen minutes from the city. This green oasis boasts a fairytale waterfall where you can picnic, watch birds and go horseback riding.

Breakfast with giraffes

In and outside Nairobi there is plenty to do. Visit the National Museum to learn more about the fauna, culture and history of Kenya and its people. The city has many hotels, but a stay at the Giraffe Manor Hotel is an extraordinary experience. Imagine giraffes sticking their long necks through the hotel windows while you’re having morning coffee. Feeling peckish after a day of sightseeing? Nothing that Kenyan cuisine can’t remedy! Sample Kiswahili, Kenya’s national dish and have a Tusker beer from the local brewery to go with it.
