Think of the capital city of Nairobi as Safari Central – the place of departure for many of our adventure tours throughout Kenya. Nairobi is a world-class city, a hub of commerce, culture, nightlife, and wildlife – a national park is just minutes away. So are other wildlife attractions like the Giraffe Center and the Sheldrick Baby Elephant Orphanage.
You’ll find so much to do and absorb in this very cosmopolitan city, whether prior to or just after completing your safari. Your comfort, and a place to rest and rejuvenate is so important to the enjoyment of your holiday.
That’s why we’ve selected seven of Nairobi’s most varied but welcoming hotels for your choice of lodging while staying in our exciting city. Some echo the country look of traditional African themes while others present a respite in luxurious contemporary suites. You can stay in the heart of the financial district or choose to lodge next to the rolling grasslands of a national park.
Whatever your accommodation choice, know that we at Natural World Kenya Safaris have carefully screened the below selection to ensure they are clean, comfortable and up to our standards. And certainly, up to yours as well. Choose from budget, economy, standard, and luxury categories depending on your needs and style.
At an affordable price, we offer a chic apartment complex that is designed with an African theme – hand-made furniture complements handwoven rugs. The en-suite three-bedroom units are perfect for families.
Our offerings in this price range feature modern rooms, health club, spa, pool, and Wi-Fi. There are also many view suites from which to choose.
Choices here include a five-star hotel located in the business district and another lodging that represents a bit of Africa’s history. During the African independence movement in the 1960s, many of the continent’s nationalist leaders stayed here.
Choose from accommodations offering old-world elegance located in the business district or a contemporary lodge standing at the edge of Nairobi National Park. From your room, view the park’s sweeping landscape and you may spot giraffe, zebra, antelope, buffalo, and more at this unique venue.
Please look over our choices for Nairobi hotels and we’re certain you’ll find one or more offerings that are perfect for your African holiday.
