"Not Nairobbery" Nairobi by boltonian

Nairobi Travel Guide: 646 reviews and 1,481 photos


Having heard nothing but bad things about Nairobi, I was suprised to find that the city is nothing like the bad reputation might suggest.

While it may be dangerous at night, what city isn't? During the day time, as long as you use common sense, the city is a great place to explore and meet the friendly people.

While only here for 30 hours, I left with very good memories of a city trying to get on in life.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots to see, Friendly people
  • Cons:Danger at night, poverty
  • In a nutshell:Not deserving of the bad reputation
