General Information

Nairobi is Kenya's capital city and is located in its own region.  Having grown rapidly since its inception in 1899, today it is the economic, commercial and transport centre for East Africa.

Nairobi is a typical large city, busy, hot and overcrowded.  There are the more affluent residential areas dotted around, but has its fair share of congested slums.  Nairobi is an important base for the United Nations and is home to universities, NGO's and various organisations.

The city centre is locked-in with towering modern office blocks and an energetic atmosphere.  Tourists can explore the city on foot, however caution must be taken for petty crime.  The safer option would be to take a taxi, which are offered on almost every street corner.
