1. Nairobi National Park is a national park in Kenya. Established in 1946, the national park was Kenya's first. It is located approximately 7 kilometres (4 mi) south of the centre of Nairobi, Kenya's capital city, with only a fence separating the park's wildlife from the metropolis. It's amazing to see wild animals with the cityscape in the back ground. Tip: Entrance to the park is $40. Come with U.S. dollars and allow four hours.

  2. Getting in and out of Safari areas usually means taking a smaller charter flight. Tip: Travel light! If your bags are too big or heavy you might not be able to bring them on small chartered planes.

  3. The word “Nairobi” translates to “place of cool waters.” And it was the city’s water that made it an ideal location at the turn of the 20th century to recharge and resupply after long trips from the coast to the hinterlands.The city also epitomizes “Africa 3.0.”A short 10-minute taxi ride from the famous Nairobi Serena Hotel and you are in the Central Business District, where the sleepy interior of the Nairobi Stock Exchange belies its reputation as the continent’s fastest-growing exchange.

  4. “Lucy,” an australopithecine human ancestor, ruled the roost in the Great East African Rift Valley three million years ago. She’s now registered on Foursquare thanks to my handy opposable thumbs. How far we’ve come.

  5. Spanning 62,000 acres, Northern Kenya’s Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is home to over 10 percent of Kenya’s black rhino population, over 14 percent of Kenya’s white rhinos and the world’slargest single herd of Grevy’s zebra. It might not be as stunning as the Maasai Mara, but it does provide visitors a more private, high-end safari experience.There’s also the “feel good” factor – it’s a nonprofit group; a portion of your fees goes directly to the surrounding community to build schools and provide access to clean water, healthcare and employment. At the award- winning il n’gwesi lodge in the heart of Lewa, safari chic is de rigueur, but so is conservation.
