Where can you find lions and giraffes and safaris (oh my!)? Nairobi, of course. The capital city of Kenya is an intriguing blend of big-city drama and the kind of great outdoors you expect to see plastered across the social media feeds of daring travellers. You can spend all your time in your hotel, but what’s the fun in that? Book one of Wotif’s Nairobi car hire options and you’ll have plenty of cash left over to drop on a pith helmet.
About 11km southwest of the city’s central business district is Bomas of Kenya, a wonderful introduction to traditional life in Kenya. Visit recreated homes and learn some tribal songs and dances.
From there, steer your Nairobi car rental back to the CBD to visit the Maasai Market. This fantastic collection of vendors does tend to move around a bit, but when it’s open, it’s the place to find souvenirs for yourself, your Mum, or, you know, us. Stock up on loot ranging from clothing and accessories to decorative items.
You haven’t been comparing prices on pith helmets for nothing. Just over 20km outside of the city is Nairobi National Park, and this is where your safari dreams will come true. Wave hello to zebras and cheetahs, or have a picnic amidst the hundreds of types of animals that live here. You might even spot lions hunting against the backdrop of the big city!
Not far from the park is Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. This sanctuary takes in youngsters orphaned by poaching; we recommend booking in advance, as a whole lot of people want to meet these cute little guys. If you ever wanted to give an elephant a hug, in the words of Captain Jack Sparrow, this is the opportune moment.
