Have you always dreamed of an African vacation? If you have visions of lions sunning themselves while herds of wildebeests pass in the distance, Nairobi is the place for you – but there’s more to it than its iconic safaris. The city and its surrounding areas offer varied experiences that will delight, entertain, and educate by day. In the evening, a boutique hotel in Nairobi offers hospitality and comfort, whether you’re looking to decompress with a workout or relax with a cold Tusker beer.

Nairobi National Park

Though it is teeming with wildlife, this park is more than just a convenient place to get up close and personal with the animals East Africa is known for. It’s also a sanctuary, a place where the kongoni antelope thrives, even though, the species is in decline elsewhere. Located so close to the city that in places, the buildings appear to be directly behind the herds of buffalo and the preening kori bustards, the park is a must-see on any trip to Nairobi.

Kenyan Cuisine

The food in Nairobi heavily favors charred meats, but there is much more to Kenyan gastronomy than barbecued beef or grilled lamb. Epicureans can enjoy spicy gizzards, a Kenyan delicacy, as well as a variety of seafood, salads, vegetable-based dishes, and desserts featuring local, seasonal fruits. A delicious meal at a boutique hotel in Nairobi is the perfect way to wind down from a busy day of sightseeing.


The world’s biggest slum is as much a part of Nairobi as the sweeping savannah vistas or the majestic giraffes. Although a visit to this massive neighborhood of tin-roofed shacks might not be the first experience you think of when planning your itinerary, you might be surprised to learn that several companies offer guided tours of the neighborhood, allowing visitors to witness firsthand the resilience of the residents and the efforts being made to improve their circumstances. While staying at a boutique hotel in Nairobi, you can rely upon the staff to help you arrange this and other off-beat experiences for a one-of-a-kind trip you’ll remember for a lifetime.

Karen Blixen Museum

If you’re a fan of Out of Africa, this stop will be near the top of your priority list. The museum offers the opportunity to step into the famed Danish memoirist’s home and view it as it was during the time the book was written. Fans of the movie can walk the very grounds where much of it was filmed, directly experiencing the visually stunning setting that graced the screen in 1985.
