Tourism in Nairobi
True devotees of safaris and African wildlife always have a specific country in mind: Kenya. And its capital, Nairobi, is the perfect starting place to enjoy a genuine safari. The most famous parks when it comes to spotting animal species are the Nairobi National Park, the Langata Giraffe Centre and Daphne Sheldrick’s Orphanage. The latter of these specializes in protecting elephant calves that have been orphaned due to poaching. The organization hosts conferences to raise public awareness of the need to protect this endangered species.
Besides magnificent animals, Nairobi has a fascinating culture and tradition of folklore, which can be discovered at the Bomas of Kenya cultural centre, where guests are treated to typical traditional dances and samples of the architecture of the more than 16 ethnic groups that make up the country.
