A little planning and research can mean the difference between a run-of-the-mill vacation and an exceptional one! Wander wisely in Nairobi by knowing a few basic details about it before you get there.
This city is the national capital of Kenya.
You can forget about the big-name attractions — it's the locals that make a place tick. In this part of Kenya, you'll find 2,800,000 of them.

Experiencing the true essence of Nairobi, the heart and capital of Kenya, starts with booking your accommodations. With 115 properties to select from with Travelocity, finding the ideal base for your next big adventure is a breeze.
Luxury rooms, silky soft sheets and sophisticated service is what you'll discover when you book the Panari Hotel (Mombasa Road) or the Sankara Nairobi (5 Woodvale Grove). However, if you don't think you'll spend much time in your suite, why not try a cheaper option like the Mvuli House (Opp. Nyayo Stadium, Muthaiti Avenue) or the Kenya Comfort Hotel (Corner of Muindi Mbingu and Monrovia St)?
Arriving at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO)? After you've hopped off the plane and claimed your luggage, the heart of Nairobi will be just 8 miles (13 kilometers) to the west away.
Book a rental car via Travelocity for your trip around Nairobi. You're sure to happen upon some hidden gems while you're cruising down the road.
If you plan to start your vacation as soon as the plane lands, rent a vehicle from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport area. Sixt and Avis are eager to get you on the road.
Avis is right in the heart of the city at P O Box 48296. This makes it a fantastic option for those staying central.
Times Tower is the place to go if you've ever wanted to see inside a large commercial building. Why not join a guided tour and discover the inner workings of big business? Need some more ideas? Throughout the ages, man has built sky-high structures for many reasons. Come and find out the history behind National Assembly Building — it's easy to find! But that's not all there is. The intimacy and accomplishment of live theater is difficult to deny. Buy your tickets for a performance at Kenya National Theatre and experience its charm and magic for yourself!
Travel experiences can completely change our way of thinking. So if you feel like you've been on a hamster wheel lately, get ready to dive headfirst into some mind-opening new adventures.
If you've explored most of Nairobi, don't worry. 25 miles (40 kilometers) away is Thika, which offers plenty to do. When you're here, visit Fourteen Falls and the Christina Wangari Gardens. If this option isn't what you're looking for, try Katelembu instead. Visitors are drawn here to discover the Machakos University and the Machakos Golf Club. It can be found just 30 miles (48 kilometers) from here.
