"Welcoming Words" Top 5 Page for this destination Nairobi Favorite Tip by greekcypriot

Nairobi General: 56 reviews and 67 photos

  Kenyans are very friendly people
by greekcypriot

Favorite thing: Karibu Kenya! which means welcome to Kenya (this phrase will be used often especially when people are introduced to you by your host).

Locals normally shake hands and say JAMBO (this is a swahili word which means hello).

Kenyans are warm and friendly people and would go out of their way to make you feel welcome in their homes and its only kind to take with you a gift whenever you go to someones house for the first time.

They will appreciate anything!!
