"Nairobi" Nairobi by diosh

Nairobi Travel Guide: 645 reviews and 1,480 photos

Visiting Nairobi,one experiences the dichotomy of abject poverty,experienced by the local people and the luxury that is provided for the tourists.I found this troubling, even though I had gone with a friend on a family visit.We stayed in a 5* hotel with the largest pools in Kenya,whilst the locals had no running water.I'm hoping that the revenue we provided helped the economy of the area in some way.

Pros and Cons
  • In a nutshell:Amazing cultural experience,as was my first trip outside Europe.

    Diana - gorgeous animal pics, Kenya is clearly an out-of-this-world experience, and I hope to get there one day :)

    I love Kenya, Nairobi too, tourism is a means of keeping the economy going here and sadly £25K per month they fall short now, such is the effect on tourism since the elections, the people now suffer sadly.
