Nairobi Warnings and Dangers: 56 reviews and 51 photos

When am reading other people warning or danger tips regarding Nairobi, all am asking myself is; were we visiting the same place?, or, is there more than one Nairobi?
I was reading recently on the net certain so-called "trip advising" sites and all of them look alike. If one follows all given advices and suggestions regarding "safety" in Africa, wouldn't dare to leave even own home! But the worst is that most of given warnings has been cut and paste from there to the pages of our fellow members on VT!!!
Come on guys, let us write our own experiences here, what we saw with our own eyes only. If one taxi driver, weiter or local travel agent have betraying us, it happened cuz we were too arrogant or too stupid to check the prices in advance!
Suppose one is first time visiting my hometown of Zagreb, taxi driver will ask him/her 30 to 50 euros for a ride from the airport to town centre. Those who were here before know well that such a ride cannot cost more than 10 euros!
Fact is, and we all know it, dishonest people excisting everywhere in the world but one single bad experience shouldn't and musn't make a general rule!
