"Cool Water...pretty cool city." Top 5 Page for this destination Nairobi by RblWthACoz

Nairobi Travel Guide: 655 reviews and 1,499 photos

A week in a strong city.

Just like with most other African cities, Nairobi isn't looked at as a tourist destination. Most people will make a quick stop before hopping off to a safari, if even that much. Realistically, there is not much worth seeing, though like anywhere else there are a few things. After looking at everything that had been done, I realized that I was looking forward to building this page more than any other place I had worked on previously. Hopefully I do the city justice.

P.S. Nairobi means "cool water".

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Diversity. Interesting architecture. Cool people.
  • Cons:People harassing me for money because I am white. Or just trying to outright rob me.
  • In a nutshell:Worth a quick stop, but not a huge investment of your time.
